It was really excellent that we could split the two activities over two days, as there was now time left to do the boat trip when we got back from the hop-on hop-off bus trip. We tend to use the bus as one trip, in order to gain an overview of the whole city. We rarely tend to use the bus more than once. Hamburg was great and the bus was great too.
Great process buying the voucher and collecting at terminal 10. I recommend getting there early as I arrived 30 minutes before the departure time and still had a hard time getting a good seat. The tour is only in German, but that doesnt matter. The tour is plenty long enough, can buy your drinks (3 € for a beer). Highly recommend the tour.
Decent boat with friendly employees! The captain is describing the sights and adjusts his commentary to the ships that currently lie in the harbour, this makes it a great experience! We got to see both the city of Hamburg as well as the impressive harbour at the other side of the river! Highly recommended!
Nice tour around the harbour including close encounters with the big container ships which was the most impressive part. Captain knew a lot about the history of the harbour and the current boats and ships in the harbour. The close pass-by with the Elbphilharmonie was also great.
Andreas was our guide and I was researching Hamburg for a book. His knowledge and communication was excellent. If there was information I already knew he moved effortlessly to information which illuminated and opened the story. Superb guide highly recommended.
