A very nice city tour through downtown Hamburg, where there was a lot of information about the city and unusual places were visited - as a special feature, references to the film were also made, for example by having to look for animals from the books/films on buildings etc. So you were well integrated and active. The city guide is a big Hary Potter fan and developed the tour herself with lots of great ideas (which I don't want to reveal more about) - so she passed on the enthusiasm well. Highly recommended for Harry Potter fans! It was great fun.

Very good tour, especially for people like me at the moment who are not so mobile or who have difficulty walking. Everything is explained well and in an entertaining way over the loudspeaker. And when the "voice" takes a break, the bus driver (in my case Klaus) tells a few anecdotes. I liked it and would go again.

Excellent tour showing us all the sights of Hamburg. The only slight problem was finding where the bus started from after we got dropped off by the large lake in centre of city. Could have done with an information board.

Super Möglichkeit, diese schöne Stadt auch bei nicht so guten Wetter zu besichtigen. Mir hat richtig gut gefallen, dass der Busfahrer lustige Anekdoten erzählt hat! Weiter so!

Excellent way to go around the city and learn more about this fun city
