What people are saying about Hamburg

The tour was great, the guide was great. However, you should first think about what to expect. Due to the energy crisis, Hamburg is no longer as illuminated as before. Correspondingly dark z. B. the warehouse district. Below deck, cozy and warm at a table, you really don't see that much, despite the glass roof. Rather only shadowy outlines. I was actually a bit frustrated at the time and would have missed the tour at most 1 or 2 stars at this point. However, if you are weatherproof, you can leave the passenger compartment and then have a wonderful view of Hamburg. In the typical gray Hamburg weather, of course, not always so pleasant. We only had a little drizzle, which was easy to bear. The perseverance on deck was actually rewarded with insane views. Conclusion: Light ride in good to moderate weather highly recommended.

We did this tour on a Wednesday evening. It was not too crowded on Reeperbahn which allowed us to carefully listen the stories & facts from our Guide Luca. Learned great facts & heard super interesting stories while visiting the various locations. Luca did a great job, we enjoyed big times.

Well organised, the guide was very funny, informative, kind. We enjoyed the tour very much.
