What people are saying about Hamburg

We had a very nice boat tour with perfect weather and the opportunity to go to the Speicherstadt - this is not always possible because of the ebb and flow of the tide. Our guide / captain was very friendly and funny and gave us very informative facts about Hamburg and especially its port. All in all, the boat tour was great! She is definitely to be recommended and also helps day guests to find the best fish sandwiches in Hamburg.

Highly recommended and worthwhile harbor tour with the Traute Abicht. Guide Michael entertained us very well with your Hamburg style and gave us a lot of interesting information about the sightseeing attractions. When booking, pay attention to the tides, because the canals cannot be navigated at low tide.

The Captain was too nice. He drove extra 20 min to show us more then it is planned. Best boat experience untill now. I do not remember his name but I think hes family comes from Turkey. He explained all the things that we saw and much more. Thank you. 5*

The guide was very good. Made a show from the tour and did his best to let us see as much as possible.

Competent and humorous leadership. ANJA is a very dedicated city guide
