What people are saying about Hamburg

Wenn man den Ableger gefunden hat, ist es eine der besten Schifffahrten, die man in toller Betreuung mit lecker Wein und Käse unternehmen kann. Kleiner Tipp: die in der Wegebeschreibung gemeinte Fischbude 10 befindet sich UNTEN an den Docks. an der Bude geht man einfach vorbei. Nicht wundern, man sieht das Schiff noch nicht. Dafür muss man am Ende des Docks rechts um die Ecke gehen und Tataa, da liegt es dann auch.

The tour was just great. Better than on the huge, overcrowded cutters. Our skipper, an Elyas M'barek guy, guided us through the tour in a very humorous and interesting way. He was fun to listen to and super authentic. We drove through the warehouse district and then to the port. All in all great. Take something to drink with you, there is nothing on board. The boat tour was really worth it.

Great tour. The explanation was done live and not pre-recorded with a lot of humor. Special ships that were docked at the time have been showcased and explained. The only caveat: you must be proficient when understanding German.

Die Tour war sehr gut organisiert und hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht! Unser Toure Guide Marco hat uns mit viel Humor und witz spannendes über Hamburg und den Hamburger-Hafen erzählt!

My tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and shared many wonderful insights about Hamburg. Highly recommend!
