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!

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.

Das Schiff war sauber und auf die Einhaltung der Hygienevorschriften wurde geachtet. Der Schiffsführer hat uns alle Sehenswürdigkeiten so gezeigt, dass wir ausreichend Gelegenheit hatten alles zu bewundern und dabei haben wir immer wieder etwas gelernt. Insgesamt verlief die Bootstour in einer entspannten Atmosphäre ohne Hetze und ohne zu viel "Rumalberei". Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen!
