River Cruise


The romantic tour is a private tour intended for a couple. We recommend going after 5pm, when the river is often empty. Your boat will be chauffeured with cushions, blankets, hot water bottles and candle lanterns. You can pay extra for roses and chocolates, or a violin solo can be played from our bridge on your return. As you turn the last corner you will see the candle lit violin and the music will get louder on your approach. This is the recommended marriage proposal moment!
