First the captain was a half hour late which interferred with our plans, we still were able to enjoy the ride. The online audio in english is not available until next year, so we were guided in German and no one understand nothing. Oh well, the sights were pretty. Lastly we thought we were going in the cannals as it is a small boat, however no where upon booking was there mention of tides. So because of low tide we stayed in the main harbor which was far less interesting to us. Otherwise for the price, the boat is comfortable and could be highly recommended if not for these few things mentioned above.

Loved the skilled and lighthearted explanations of the boats people n the seaman's shanties. Impressive to see the big "tubs" and hear the detailed background infos about the ships n buildings around the harbour. We did the night-and the day harbour cruise. Both were unique bec every time they were different ships to see. The company is very flexible and refreshing friendly and helpful. We booked a Barkasse and then liked to change it to a ship, no problem. A harbour cruise is a must to get the right impression from Hamburg. Highly recommend. Thanks.

The captain of the launch was very open-minded and had a super positive effect on us. His explanations of the respective descriptions showed a very good knowledge of what is happening around the port of Hamburg. The trip was very entertaining and informative.
