I got there quite early so I could get some food and drink at a restaurant before boarding. You can check at the kiosk the exact departure time and dock that it leaves from. The boat actually comes in about 1 hour before it departs so you can board early and get a good seat and a beer. The tour is very lovely with views of the old and new harbour. Even though I understand little German intuitively you can get a sense of what is being said and the host is quite funny! Would definitely recommend.
Decent boat with friendly employees! The captain is describing the sights and adjusts his commentary to the ships that currently lie in the harbour, this makes it a great experience! We got to see both the city of Hamburg as well as the impressive harbour at the other side of the river! Highly recommended!
Nice tour around the harbour including close encounters with the big container ships which was the most impressive part. Captain knew a lot about the history of the harbour and the current boats and ships in the harbour. The close pass-by with the Elbphilharmonie was also great.
It was well worth it. It's nice to see the Harbor and Hamburg from the water. The only problem was that we had a hard time understanding the Captain. Might need to look into a different speaker system.
interesting and lovely views off the city/port in the dark. arrive early to get a good seat.
