The boat tour was great and I can only recommend it to everyone. It is best to take a 100min tour because you can see both sides. You should come a little earlier because otherwise you won't get any more space upstairs

The boat trip was very nice and interesting. Also suitable for families and children

Very nice route, good explanations in German, good food. Fun for little money

It was great...only people must get before your trip to take the seats:-)

We were with a group of 7 people and had a lot of fun
