Only in German. No english. Still a lovely experience. Would recommend. No Spierchetstadt cruise however. Do not think it can ever take place in the evening with such a big ship.
Hop aboard a city cruise to see Hamburg’s Speicherstadt and harbor twinkle in the evening light. Enjoy the city silhouette as you navigate the city’s canals and the Elbe. Your onboard guide will be on-hand to point out all its hidden nooks and crannies. Get to know Hamburg’s historical warehouse district located within the old port.

Discover this gateway to the world up-close onboard a little ship, equally suited to a fleet.
Hafen Rundfahrt war einfach super. Einzig die Tatsache, dass das Boot nicht von Steg 1 sondern von Steg 7 wegfährt war unangenehm. Wenn man relativ zeitnah kommt, wird das zeitlich doch knapp zum anderen Steg zu laufen

This tour focused on architecture , town development and some history. It was maybe a little onesided. I expected to see more of the town on this walk.
A visit to Hamburg without a tour through the harbor is almost unthinkable. No other city in Europe has more bridges than Hamburg, not even Venice. Approximately 2,400 structures cross over the waterways, canals, and harbor basin. Climb aboard the boat and explore the various attractions in the city, depending on the tide and the time of day. Admire the historical Speicherstadt (warehouse district) with its narrow waterways, the modern HafenCity, the numerous bridges over the Elbe River, busy locks and container terminals, the large Blohm and Voss shipyard, the Köhlbrand Bridge, and much more. Along the way, learn interesting facts about the city and its history as well as the incoming and outgoing ships. Simply sit back and enjoy the fantastic views from the water.
It was very nice, i appreciated the option of having an English guide on a phone from the company. But the German guide from the speakers was extremely loud

I got off at the wrong stop and was quite stranded. I called the office for help, and they were super helpful going as far as making the rest of the group wait a few minutes for me. The tour guide also knew his stuff and had a good sense of humour. It was a memorable and fun experience for all of us!
Highly recommended with a mega friendly, helpful captain! A breathtaking sight on one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Book the harbor tour here, of course there are also sales on site, but they are cheaper here and it's just as quick and very uncomplicated! Tip is worth it!
