The trip itself was very good and informative. However, there are several Kanal-Alster tours to book, which was indistinguishable here. In addition, there is a departure every hour, the ticket counter even now - not overcrowded in the high season! I would advise buying the tickets on site, because you are independent in terms of time and can choose from - I mean 6 tours

What a great, entertaining, funny and instructive trip that was... Super cool, many thanks to the friendly captain...he rocked the ship all by himself and even served the drinks... We were treated with a lot of humor everything explained, shown and small anecdotes inserted... thank you very much, we would love to come back

Two hours of informative relaxation. I've been to Hamburg several times, but I didn't know the canals. Nice change of perspective. Interesting details and information through the captain's live commentary. He was also willing to answer questions. Lots of greenery and water in the middle of a metropolis. The electric boat ride was fun and highly recommended.
