Wenn man den Ableger gefunden hat, ist es eine der besten Schifffahrten, die man in toller Betreuung mit lecker Wein und Käse unternehmen kann. Kleiner Tipp: die in der Wegebeschreibung gemeinte Fischbude 10 befindet sich UNTEN an den Docks. an der Bude geht man einfach vorbei. Nicht wundern, man sieht das Schiff noch nicht. Dafür muss man am Ende des Docks rechts um die Ecke gehen und Tataa, da liegt es dann auch.

We did the bus, harbor and Alster tour at the beginning of our stay in Hamburg, because the tours showed us the most beautiful and interesting corners and destinations and we saw practically everything in one go and could visit again later. Was really a great experience.

Smooth running. Nice bus tour: wasn't too long, interesting information. Ship trip Elbe Barkassen: Mega, were even longer than 1 hour on the road. Price-performance top

Everything went great. Had a great bus driver who brought his knowledge to one or the other. Happy to recommend

Everything went very well. Cruise the informative just like the city tour. Gladly again
