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.

Hamburg is beautiful. We saw beautiful corners. The boat tour was great, there was great music and the tour guide was really funny.

Find out everything you need to know about the port and around it in a beautiful two-hour boat trip.

Interesting ship and cool history. The interactive parts where really cute.

It was a nice tour but would have liked to see more of the Speicherstadt.
