Bus drivers were informative re: boat tickets (since the website/app we’re not very detailed); neither lake or river cruises has English translation, but still very beautiful and scenic; was able to do all 3 in 1 day (we only had 1 day in Hamburg) - great way to see everything, if you don’t have a lot of time.

I liked the tour very much, everything was explained very well and there were many interesting stops.

Toller Fahrer, der viele Insider-Tipps geteilt hat. Busse waren sauber und kamen stets pünktlich.

Competent and humorous leadership. ANJA is a very dedicated city guide

Great city tour, very good explanation of the sights.
