Very great, because you get a completely different insight here. You don't just cruise around in the port, but also through the Speicherstadt and Hafencity. However, you should avoid this trip if you get seasick easily. The barracks are simply small and you can feel every wave. But if you have a firm stomach, this ride is one of the best I've been on!

The harbor tour was very entertaining and informative. The captain also had really good knowledge about the individual stations. Unfortunately, the boat's engine was too loud for the speakers, so that you sometimes had to make an effort to understand something. So next time just make the hut louder and keep it up!

Interesting to see the harbor from the water. Dog was allowed on board. Currently (end of October) only masks are compulsory. Boat was well heated. We were allowed to go out while driving. The tour started on time. There was some information about the ships currently in the harbor and the sights such as Hafencity, Elbphilharmonie, etc.
