Hatten eine fahr für 13:30 gebucht. Das war sehr einfach zu finden und bequem zu erreichen. Mein kann locker eine Kinderwagen mitnehmen. Die Tour war klein aber schön und wenn man einen dreijährigen dabei hat ist eine Stunde Bootfahren auch passend. Wie haben 12 Eure nur für zwei Erwachsene bezahlt und wollten dem kleinen zeigen wie toll Bootfahren sein kann. Nur zu empfehlen!

The boat was well maintained but average. The captain (who was also our guide) was able to shine with expertise and enthusiasm for the port of Hamburg. We have a lot of interesting facts to take with you. It was a wonderful ride.
