What people are saying about Hamburg

Fascinating tour showing off the diversity of the harbour.

It was fascinating to see the wide range of activity around the harbour from the canal & warehouses to the container and cruise ships. Very clear and humorous commentary in English.

Although the ads were in English, the commentary was not.

Purely a visual tour in our case, the commentary was in German. Also a bit difficult to find the right boat.

Hamburg: 1-Hour Harbor Cruise Reviewed by Daniel, 02/08/2017

Excellent, very comprehensive tour of the Hamburg Harbor

Great tour, passes all important parts of the Hamburg harbor. The boat was well kept, a good design for such a purpose, and the service on board was great, with a good selection of drinks and even some food. The only slight downside was the rather unmotivated tour guide, who was not very keen on answering questions. However, all in all a very recommendable tour.
