Overall rating

based on 3 reviews

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

Was a very nice experience. The boat is very quiet which makes the trip really relaxing. Prices for drinks and food are perfectly fine. The "highlight" was that you have to go through the lock on the outward and return journey.

It was a great evening! Immanuel told us very interesting things about whiskey with a lot of charm and humor. It was a successful gift for my husband's 60th birthday! Thanks very much! Greetings... Sandra Gildhorn

Evy war der perfekte Guide, wir hatten einen wunderschönen unterhaltsamen Nachmittag, den keiner von uns so schnell vergessen wird! Vielen vielen Dank!

Was great fun. Unfortunately, the explanation with the GPS was very poor. Just be persistent and ask! But anytime again...
