What people are saying about Alster Lake

The tour was very good. Unfortunately, the times given here at Getyourguide do not match. It was stated until 4.45 p.m. but that is the time when the last tour ends. But the people on site were so friendly, because there were more people who booked through this portal that the guys packed the bus again and then we went. A clean affair and thanks again to the team on site who handled the portal's error so confidently ... a 6 for the portal. Used once and never again. Better to arrange everything on site.

We were very satisfied, our guide "Kev" did a great job as a Hamburg original and entertained us consistently.

Very nice tour guide. Has entertained us very well even in the rain.

Great day thank you very much. Exellent guide and driver!!!!

The driver and tour guide were very nice and friendly.
