We were only at 12:00 p.m. at Hamburg Central Station. You should start the tour earlier. We had a day ticket for the sightseeing tour bus. But only drove to the landing bridges for the 2-hour harbor tour. Since it was already uncertain whether the 2-hour drive is still taking place. I was lucky. 1:45 p.m. was still driving. Even after that again. Otherwise we could have participated in the 1 hour. Harbor tour was great. With children can be 2 hours long. Recommended for 2 hours without children. Thereafter, no longer took the bus due to the thunderstorm coming up. So the more expensive tagickek wasn't worth it. Tagestickek for the public Transport in Hamburg is definitely recommended. Nevertheless, it was a nice, entertaining day.

Excellent content and presentation. Both Guids were knowledable.

It was really excellent that we could split the two activities over two days, as there was now time left to do the boat trip when we got back from the hop-on hop-off bus trip. We tend to use the bus as one trip, in order to gain an overview of the whole city. We rarely tend to use the bus more than once. Hamburg was great and the bus was great too.

Well organized. Always report to the bus first. There you can get the tickets for the bus and the boat trip printed out. You can then determine the sequence yourself. Choose the small harbor tour with the Hammonia, as you can see the Speicherstadt by bus.

Well organised tour, friendly staff, good value for money. What more can you ask for? 5 stars!

Highly Recommended. A combination of bus / boat. We had an hour on the Elbe.
