Great trip on the Elbe and in the harbor. We drove through Unsesco World Heritage (old warehouses) and got off there. After visiting the Museum Maritim, we got back on board. New city and concert Elbphilharmonie was explained great and looks great from the water. The captain told entertaining and funny stories. Recommended and a must.

Full five stars for a wonderful trip that can only be recommended to every Hamburg traveler. The welcome on board was warm and what was important to us, compliance with the mask requirement was observed. (On other ships you could see that this was not the case) Live moderation in two languages, coffee and a well-stocked range of drinks round off the thing. The offer of a hop-on hop-off barge trip is unique. This gives you the opportunity to see the individual attractions on land. Here we would like to mention the BallinStadt emigration museum, which is a little out of the way and is still approached. We can only recommend the trip and would and will certainly book it again on our next visit.

Inspiring, not promised too much. We have often heard good things about the Circle Line in the port and now we have tried it ourselves with the family. It's a great deal and with the combination Maritime Museum; unique. Gladly again. The ships are older but have a special charm and above all they are the only ones that also sail through the old town with the department stores.
