Really nice boat ride - you are on a small boat which can also enter in more remote parts of the harbour. They really went close to the big container ships. I really appreaciated the explanations around the Köhlbrandbrücke. I personally would have enjoyed a bit less flat jokes and more information, but I see that other people really liked that so allright. But the staff was really nice and knew how to entertain.

Decent boat with friendly employees! The captain is describing the sights and adjusts his commentary to the ships that currently lie in the harbour, this makes it a great experience! We got to see both the city of Hamburg as well as the impressive harbour at the other side of the river! Highly recommended!

The tour was very interesting - we saw a. one of the world's largest container ships, not from Maersk, but from Cosco, the Chinese state shipping company, which holds 21,000 TEW / 20-foot container equivalents. And an hour and a half sailing around a harbor that is so huge that it is difficult to understand, especially as it is so far from the sea.
