Overall rating

4.6 / 5

Full five stars for a wonderful trip that can only be recommended to every Hamburg traveler. The welcome on board was warm and what was important to us, compliance with the mask requirement was observed. (On other ships you could see that this was not the case) Live moderation in two languages, coffee and a well-stocked range of drinks round off the thing. The offer of a hop-on hop-off barge trip is unique. This gives you the opportunity to see the individual attractions on land. Here we would like to mention the BallinStadt emigration museum, which is a little out of the way and is still approached. We can only recommend the trip and would and will certainly book it again on our next visit.

The search for the next place was quite demanding (for children), as you can quickly lose track of a strange city. But the accompanying adults could help. Since the tour went through the area of the peppercorns, it would have been nice if one or the other film location (the bridge, for example) had also been included. The price is aimed at EVERYONE involved, although it was only interesting for children / adolescents. The total price for 2 adults and 1 young person is a little too high.

Well thought out, beautiful route through the Hafencity, Elphi to the Landungsbrücken. For the children (ages 8, 10) easily solvable questions and always with an interestingly described contribution on the cards. The corresponding photos on the cards for the stations are very useful and helpful. Another advantage is that everything can be done at your own pace with stops in between at Eis & Co.

Great trip on the Elbe and in the harbor. We drove through Unsesco World Heritage (old warehouses) and got off there. After visiting the Museum Maritim, we got back on board. New city and concert Elbphilharmonie was explained great and looks great from the water. The captain told entertaining and funny stories. Recommended and a must.

Our city guide Steffen led us through Hamburg with a lot of esprit, nice stories and in-depth knowledge. Wherever possible, he chose routes that were easy to cycle on, but we always felt safe and in good hands, even on busy roads. Thank you and gladly again!
