      Decent boat with friendly employees! The captain is describing the sights and adjusts his commentary to the ships that currently lie in the harbour, this makes it a great experience! We got to see both the city of Hamburg as well as the impressive harbour at the other side of the river! Highly recommended!

      The tour was very interesting - we saw a. one of the world's largest container ships, not from Maersk, but from Cosco, the Chinese state shipping company, which holds 21,000 TEW / 20-foot container equivalents. And an hour and a half sailing around a harbor that is so huge that it is difficult to understand, especially as it is so far from the sea.

      Nice boat trip. It is a bit full on the boat but it is cozy. The guide made many jokes. Unfortunately we were unable to go to Speicherstadt due to the high tide. Are you planning to book? Please leave your small children at home. That whining is really terrible.
