Had booked a trip for 13:30. That was very easy to find and easy to get to. Mine can easily take a stroller with me. The tour was small but nice and if you have a three year old with you, an hour of boating is also suitable. We only paid 12 of yours for two adults and wanted to show the little one how great boating can be. I can only recommend it!

Sehr toll, weil man hier nochmal ganz andere Einblicke bekommt. Man schippert nicht nur im Hafen rum, sondern auch durch die Speicherstadt und Hafencity. Allerdings sollte man auf diese Fahrt verzichten, wenn man schnell Seekrank wird. Die Baracke ist einfach klein und man spürt jede Welle. Hat man einen festen Magen, ist diese Fahrt aber eine der besten, an denen ich bisher teilgenommen habe!

Interessant den Hafen mal vom Wasser aus zu sehen. Hund durfte mit an Bord. Aktuell (Ende Oktober) nur Maskenpflicht. Boot war gut beheizt. Wir durften während der Fahrt auch mal raus. Die Tour startete pünktlich. Es gab einige Infos zu den aktuell im Hafen liegenden Schiffen und zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten wie die Hafencity, Elbphilharmonie usw.
