What people are saying about St. Georg
The city tour on the Line C Classic Line was a great experience. About two years ago I had already done a city tour in Hamburg with another company on a different route and was more than disappointed. The route wasn't nearly as varied as this line. Here I was able to get to know Hamburg in detail, and the trip around the Outer Alster was really great. The bus was clean, almost new, and the comments were made through a voice system. Very good presentation of the sights on the route with a lot of background. The driver was nice too and I felt well chauffeured by him. If you really want to get to know the city you should take this line, I can only recommend this tour. Spontaneously I decided to do a harbor tour and bought a discounted ticket on the bus. After the harbor tour I continued the city tour, everything went fine, the bus arrived on time. Absolute recommendation!
That was a great tour !!! The guide brought us the history of the city and the district with many backgrounds and contexts, peppered with anecdotes, "dark" stories, experiences ... entertaining and amusing. The selected delicacies were a great selection from the so many gastronomic nationalities that can be found in St. Georg. The curiosity and interest for the other tours is aroused. We will be back.
Despite the rainy weather, it was a very interesting tour. Our tour guide Marius made the tour very individual and interesting. With pleasure again!
Easy to find the bus stop. There are different lines at the same place. Ask zur bus driver.
Nice trip - very good guide with very good knowledge
