A nice tour through the Speicherstadt and a bit around it with interesting information, scary and exciting stories and great views. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, funny and friendly, answered questions, sometimes included a joke, showed and explained a lot and always paid attention to the whole group. It wasn't too long a tour, but it still contained a lot of things worth knowing and seeing.

Great for a family visit in Hamburg, gives a nice overview of the city at night. Possible to have a drink on the boat (it is just a little more expensive than in a normal bar). Happy to find out that one member of the staff could speak English and Chinese

The harbor cruise at night was absolutely amazing! Insanely beautiful to look at and the tour guide commented on the tour with a lot of interesting facts and a lot of wit and good humor. We were all thrilled and would do this tour again in a heartbeat.

Captain Michael professionally guided us through the tour. His calm, clear, friendly and approachable manner, peppered with humor and knowledge, was very enriching. We also had great weather and a bright full moon. A highly recommended tour.

Absolutely unforgettable! Easily one of the best tours I have been on! Especially loved learning about Lady Katarina!
