Overall rating

based on 6,245 reviews

The nice thing about the pass is the use of public transport. You don't have to worry about tariffs or tickets. Some of the admission staff in the facilities were overwhelmed and could not handle the digital pass. But was then simply waved through everywhere. A list of the objects of the passport is unfortunately missing!!!

We had really nice seats. The food was exellent, lots to chose from. The service very good and some good mucisians playing during dinner. I really recomend this boat trip. We where á group of six and everyone where happy!!

It was a chill ride, good commentary and just long enough to be sweet and short enough to be comfortable. Good information given although the scenic view is enough without any commentaries. Enjoyed it a lot

So easy to book online, directions and meeting point explained perfectly.

Very nice. The food is so so, but overal it was nice
