The staff was friendly and helpful, and the tour was as described in the ads. There were toilets on the boat, which was quite convenient. The English-speaking tour guide was a German man with a German accent, not a native speaker of English. His English was reasonably good. The loudspeaker was a loudspeaker, meaning it had a bit of static or distortion, although it wasn't bad as loudspeakers go. The combination made the narration a bit difficult for some people in our group to understand. I didn't have trouble with it, but I have a lot of experience with German accents. Still, having a tour in English was very nice.
All in all it was amazing. As we were only 4 guests, it felt like a private tour. Our tourguide was really nice. Five stars for her! Sadly I had to remove one star as the busdriver was a grumpy man. He didn‘t wanted to accept our mobile tickets and had no idea how to handle a qr code. Also his driving style was rather frightening.
This tour is quite interesting. At the same time it’s scary, it’s fun and informative. I learned a lot about Hamburg’s past in a fun and interactive way. I would recommend this tour to friends and family (especially those with kids).
Read the ticket in detail as it is only in small print that it identifies exactly which of the many bus tours that leave from outside the station you are actually booked on.
I missed the english tour for the day, but still went. I don’t speak german but easily followed along in the booklet and very muh enjoyed it all the same. I would go again.
