Bus drivers were informative re: boat tickets (since the website/app we’re not very detailed); neither lake or river cruises has English translation, but still very beautiful and scenic; was able to do all 3 in 1 day (we only had 1 day in Hamburg) - great way to see everything, if you don’t have a lot of time.

The live presentations in the hop buses and on the boats were great, but unfortunately, at least in the buses, they should no longer be available from next year. It should also be noted that this is not a ticket for 3 days, but a day ticket that can be used on one of 3 days.

However, the organization leaves much to be desired. We were not informed that you first have to get the tickets for the boat trips on the bus. Not that you should take the bus ride first. So there was no need to run back and forth. In addition, the staff on the Alster boat trip did not know that the offer was available. Fortunately, the staff on site was flexible and helpful. But that should definitely be changed!
