The city tour on the Line C Classic Line was a great experience. About two years ago I had already done a city tour in Hamburg with another company on a different route and was more than disappointed. The route wasn't nearly as varied as this line. Here I was able to get to know Hamburg in detail, and the trip around the Outer Alster was really great. The bus was clean, almost new, and the comments were made through a voice system. Very good presentation of the sights on the route with a lot of background. The driver was nice too and I felt well chauffeured by him. If you really want to get to know the city you should take this line, I can only recommend this tour. Spontaneously I decided to do a harbor tour and bought a discounted ticket on the bus. After the harbor tour I continued the city tour, everything went fine, the bus arrived on time. Absolute recommendation!

Against all odds (since the streets were closed off) this was a successful ride

We booked the ride in advance for ten people. Since it was a religious holiday that day some of the streets in Hamburg were closed off, so the driver was forced to improvise a route. The young man who guided the ride faced a similar challenge, and he did a good job entertaining us with anecdotes and his knowledge of the subject. Both of us gifted us with an unforgettable hour and a half.

Top-notch!!!

Despite the rain I had a great, fun time overall with Benjamin (our guide) and Torben (our driver). Both of them were extremely nice, helpful, charming and funny. I had a lot of fun! THANKS!

Easy to find the bus stop. There are different lines at the same place. Ask zur bus driver.

The lady has informed us very well and that is very lively and great.
