Total waste of $ and more importantly 80 minutes of our time to explore the beautiful town. Literally goes down about 3 minutes of "worthwhile" sites (little Venice which you could walk in 2 minutes) and then you go into a lock which is the...More

DO NOT waste precious time in Bamberg on this rip off boat tour. Once you are past the charming houses on the channel and are five minutes into the 80 minute tour you will understand why there is no line and the cost is so...More

Almost all of the reviews, which seem to have stopped as of Nov. 2016, corectly state that this boat "tour" is a waste of money. You can see Little Venice in Bamberg up-close from the other side of the canal, along a nice footpath, or...More

The first 5 or so minutes were very interesting, passing the Klein Vendig, but after that it was boredom, boredom, boredom! It was OK untio we reached the lock, but soon we were treated to the sights of industrial sites, scrap metal dumps and the...More

Save your money for something else. Except for the first and last five minutes there was nothing to see except industrial buildings. The lock experience was interesting though...should have turned around here. Commentary was in German and the English notes read as if you were...More

As others have mentioned the first 5/10 minutes going through the town were very nice. The tour should have stopped at the lock rather than subject everyone to an hour of looking at industrial buildings and piles of scrap. My German girlfriend assures me that...More
