Good, but certainly not excellent. Good is the long ride on key landmarks along the river. But, if you are a tourist with little knowledge of German (i.e., international traveler), you get stuck with a very limited audio guide. It works using an app the either crashes or does not align with how the boat is moving along the river. This while native speakers enjoy funny jokes form the live guide. To make it worth 30 Euro, you need a better audio app.

Great ride with an entertaining and competent moderator. We saw the harbor with buildings on the banks as far as Blankenese, we were up to the Airbus company and on the way back we made a detour to the container terminal, where we also learned a lot of interesting facts. The only negative thing I have to say was that you specified Landungsbrücke 1 as the meeting point, but the departure was at 9 at the other end. Otherwise a great ride.

We can highly recommend this beautiful trip to Blankenese. Great big ship and great explanations. The 2 hours are worth it.
