The city tour on the Line C Classic Line was a great experience. About two years ago I had already done a city tour in Hamburg with another company on a different route and was more than disappointed. The route wasn't nearly as varied as this line. Here I was able to get to know Hamburg in detail, and the trip around the Outer Alster was really great. The bus was clean, almost new, and the comments were made through a voice system. Very good presentation of the sights on the route with a lot of background. The driver was nice too and I felt well chauffeured by him. If you really want to get to know the city you should take this line, I can only recommend this tour. Spontaneously I decided to do a harbor tour and bought a discounted ticket on the bus. After the harbor tour I continued the city tour, everything went fine, the bus arrived on time. Absolute recommendation!

The tour is very well planned and passes many sights and places of interest. Unfortunately, there were a lot of demos on our weekend so that the tour could not be driven as planned. The changes made by the driver did not affect the quality of the tour. Recommended !!!

Depending on which bus driver you are traveling with, you will get additional spots explained or information on top of the standard announcement. This adds to the already informative trip.

Great experience!! It was a lot of fun and you checked out all the important sights in one day :)

Easy to find the bus stop. There are different lines at the same place. Ask zur bus driver.
