I joined the blue city bus. I got off in the town hall & joined the walking tour there. After I finished I walked back to the same station where the bus stopped. I waited for 28 minutes then a blue color bus approaching but it didn't stop. I know the driver saw me. Wasting another 20 minutes I did... More

The route was quite interesting The guide asked if anyone was English - by my guess about 15% responded. "If you have a question, please ask". A bit hard if you didn't know what you were looking at! She then spoke German for 98% of the time, making the tour of limited value. A pity because she was fluent in... More

This hop on hop off tour is okay. There is little information about where you hop on and off and times etc. The problem is that despite requesting an English translation there was minimal English provided. I could just about manage with my limited german but missed chunks. There was little historical perspective and social history background. Some of the... More

We would have enjoyed the tour if they had bothered to provide even a basic English translation ( which they advertise that they do provide). When you hear the tour guide speak paragraphs in German and then you get a one sentence English translation, you realize they don't have much regard for their English speaking tourists. Don't waste your money... More

The tour as such is quite interesting and the driver must have been one of the more skilled ones, navigating this big bus through the narrow streets of Hamburg. On the downside is the guide who spoke English with a heavy German accent and spoke German so fast it was difficult to follow. Even so it was easier to understand... More

We pre-purchased the Hamburg Hop-On/Hop-Off tour voucher in an effort to hopefully avoid lines and waiting time for the bus and boat tours. We were directed to several rot (red) buses in order just to get our tickets. We then attempted to find our boat for the port tour. We were directed to 5 different boats!! It truly felt as... More

We arrived well before departure. Greeted by elderly gentleman with a ciggy hanging out of his mouth. Ciggy not removed even when talking. Paid our fares and settled down upstairs. No English commentary available but we can get around with German. 10 minutes later our guide comes upstairs and explains to Italian party in front of us that they have... More

The tour was in German and we were told that it was also in English. The person speaking would talk a very long time in German and then add a few sentences in English with a very strong accent which was very hard to understand. If you just want to ride around and look, then this might work for you,... More

Booked this tour as a good way of seeing the sights of Hamburg and finding out more about the city. Shame the guide obviously didn't want to accomodate any english visitors as the commentary was nearly all in german. When asked to translate to english he grudgingly said a few words in rushed english but for every 4 or5 sentences... More

We rebooked and paid through Viator for a hop on hop bus tour for Hamburg Germany at the end of April 2015. The bus line indicated it went right by the gates of the cruise ship terminal and the actual stop was about two blocks away so no problem. The tour itself was good and the guide spoke in both...
