Planning Your Visit

What kind of boat tour should I choose?

If you're feeling spontaneous, go for one of the hop-on hop-off boat tours. When something on shore catches your eye, you can signal the captain and conveniently disembark. Other popular options include evening trips that let you see the city's architecture glow under starlight, and a historic boat tour that gives you lessons on Hamburg's heritage.

What People Are Saying About Hamburg

Just fabulous, although as we have no German had no idea of the jokes.

Recommend it highly, had no idea Hamburg was as stunning as it is. As The actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, we will be back ❤️❤️
Hamburger: Evening Lights Tour in Port Reviewed by Breda, 09/01/2016

Great value package. Well worth investing in.

Really pleased we booked this. The guides gave good information and the harbour tour was brilliant. It took about 90 minutes and it was on a paddle steamer - not some tiny barge. If you've only got a limited time in Hamburg, this option is a must.
Hamburg: Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus and Boat Tour Reviewed by Lynne, 09/21/2015

Our City and Harbour tour of Hamburg was the best we have ever had.

We booked our city tour on line. It was a quarter of the on board cruise tour price. All the people we met were most helpful,, it was wonderful. We can thoroughly recommend it, and will most certainly do it again. We'll done 'Get Your Guide'.

Very interesting and commentary in both English and German.

We very much enjoyed the bus and harbour cruise. I would highly recommend this tour if you are in Hamburg for a short time.
