Hardly another city in the world is so tied to its port; Hamburg truly developed because of it. The most important sights and the skyline are inextricably linked to it.

We booked the trip online. Everything worked great with the online tickets on the mobile phone. We had Lukas as speaker. Luke was great. He was super easy to understand and he didn't just rattle off his text like some others. Lukas likes his job, you can tell. He was also very nice to the children. Luke - keep it up. The 2 hours were over far too quickly. Always happy.

The tour is very interesting. Especially good was the captain who personally commented and guided the tour (no tape was played)! This gave the tour a personal touch and was really fun. Driving through the Speicherstadt and to the Elbphilharmonie gives you a different view of these highlights and driving through the harbor right next to the huge container ships is really impressive. Overall, absolutely recommendable, but definitely with a personal tour by the captain!

The harbor tour was really great. You get insights into the Speicherstadt, the harbor and also the coasts, which you would hardly have gotten without a boat trip. Our captain made the ride very fun and interesting. In the end we drove around a lot in the harbor, which in my opinion would not have been necessary, but still a successful boat trip.
