The city tour was just the right thing for our first visit to Hamburg. We did the entire loop without getting out in between, and I think we were able to get a pretty good overview. The tour leads through the Speicherstadt, the Hafencity, past the exhibition center, along the Outer Alster and Inner Alster, through St. Pauli and back to the Landungsbrücken. It is peppered with a lot of information that comes off the tape and is very easy to understand. Additional information was provided by the bus driver. The journey was very entertaining and the hour and a half went by far too quickly. We had a wheelchair user with us. The buses are handicapped accessible. A ramp will be installed for entry and exit. Great!

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.

Extremely friendly staff! Cheese and crackers were very tasty. Option of red, white and rose wine, each one was very good quality. Would recommend

A must when visiting Hamburg for the first time. Great guide or bus driver. Smooth running.

You have seen the most important points of Hamburg. Driver was very nice.
