Since 20 years I´m a passionate professional photographer. Besides that I love water and to spend my leisure on my boat with nice company. From the water I see Berlin very different and I discover on every occasion new points of interest or familiar things in a completely new light.

We loved our boat ride with Gerhard. It was really wonderful to experience Berlin from a smaller boat, learn about the hidden gems of the city and even see boat-houses in the harbor. Truly wonderful

Skip the big, crowded, and slow boats around Museum Island. Gerhard has his own small boat, which he clearly loves as much as he loves Berlin. He took us from the dock in East Berlin around the Island of Youth, under the Oberbaum Bridge, past the "Molecule Man" statue, past Alexanderplatz, and around some nice narrower waterways with old-style buildings. He provided snacks and drinks, and we could go to the front or top of the boat to get amazing views. One tip: bring a light jacket. Even though the weather was quite hot, once we got on the water and the wind started it became cooler, especially when the sun started to go down. Overall highly recommend! Saw Berlin in a whole new way :)

Gerhard was very accommodating, giving me the opportunity to have a swim in the Spree, as I had requested. The tour went on at a leisurely pace, allowing plenty of time for taking photos and observing the breathtaking surroundings while relaxing. I have discovered a great number of interesting places by the water I would never have been able to see if I had explored the city solely on land. I definitely recommend this experience!

The boat trip on Spree river is an experience not to lose, enchanting views and lights of an unimaginable perception of always renewing Berlin. Not only relaxing but envolving and challenging, thanks to Gerhard's knowledge, Berlin's vitality, great music. The path is long and the vision complete, three hours long, many reasons to join the tour, from photography to video recordings (as I did, in a definitely pleasant and interesting way), knowledge of the city, relax beeing rocked by the calm waters. Gerhad is also a professional photographer. Strongly recommended, five stars !

An unique trip on the spree river. It doesn't even feel like one is even in Berlin. Gerhard was very friendly and interactive. He had refreshments and lots of knowledge on Germany in general.
