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

Bamberg was one of the most picturesque and welcoming places I have ever been to, So the prospect of a nice river trip on a very hot day to see some more of the area seemed a good idea , ( well that was the...More
