I got there quite early so I could get some food and drink at a restaurant before boarding. You can check at the kiosk the exact departure time and dock that it leaves from. The boat actually comes in about 1 hour before it departs so you can board early and get a good seat and a beer. The tour is very lovely with views of the old and new harbour. Even though I understand little German intuitively you can get a sense of what is being said and the host is quite funny! Would definitely recommend.
It was a bit difficult to find the right meeting place and the small boat that we had booked on wasn’t running due to high water levels. We were lucky that another larger paddle wheeler was accepting our tickets . The tour was all in German which we knew ahead of time but it was not the route we had bought tickets for. So instead of the canal we got the the shipping port . It was a good evening activity but not what we expected.
We were in Hamburg for work with a client. This Illumination tour that we booked through Get Your Guide was to close our few days work and was a lovely experience. The tour is well organised, a good length and lots of interesting local information shared by the guide. The booking experience in Get Your Guide was very intuitive, easy, fast and efficient. Great online travel service.
The boat tour was amazing. They took us through the canals and into the port. I was a little disappointed because online it said there was different language audio guide available but when we got on the boat there was no such thing and the commentary was in German
I could see very interesting ships and other, but only problem that there was not guided with tanslation in English. My proposal to organizers to have translation by head phones or something like that, or to have at least 2 or 3 tours with guiding in English.
