The tour was excellent. There is though a discrepancy on the gate. On the voucher it was mentioned Brücke 1, whereas the departure was from Brücke 7 and 30min later. Also, in the reservation and photo a different kind of boat appears in relation to reality.

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.

Schöne Bootstour inklusive interessanter Erläuterung. Die Tour ging in Richtung Blankenese bevor es zum Ende hin in die Hafenanlagen ging. Die Tour ging sogar fast 2 1/2 Stunden. Grundsätzlicher Tipp: früh genug da sein und am Ticketschalter nach den „Abfahrtssteg“ fragen.
