  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.
We perform checks on reviews.
Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.
*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    Staff was friendly and kind. Boat ride was a nice but the sound system was challenging to hear. Overall a very nice experience for the price.

    I would give 5 stars but the tour I booked was supposed to be on English, and the host could speak English, but he chose not to speak English because it is harder for him. So the sights were lovely but we understood nothing.

    It was fun! The map link on the Trip Advisor website took us to the wrong meeting place but fortunately we had left enough time. We only saw the sign to download the English audio at the end of the trip so we hadn’t a clue about what the guy was saying but we still managed to enjoy the ride. As we were travelling towards the experience we say the largest container ship in the world docking, and our ride included a close up view of it at the end. It extended the trip and was a fabulous experience.

    Commentary is in German by the Captain or via your mobile phone after logging to their QR code. Worked on my phone worked intermittently on my partners. The main problem is that it is GPS triggered and you need to be at the exact spot to trigger the commentary and the captain did not always go close enough to trip that trigger so we missed out on about 20% of the comments.
    The system need the ability for users to trigger the comments on demand. Missed too much.

    Barca boats in Hamburg in general have the highest quality services taking into consideration the cost factor so the cost-benefit ratio is really good. The staff are super nice they speak English and German and the sailing experience was great as well. I’d love to book again in the future.

    Despite the advertisements, no English was available. As the tour began, we asked for headsets and were told it was only German. We asked again and this time they said to listen to our phones. After a third request, they provided instructions and this worked okay. The guy wasn't outright rude, but it was close
    Boat ride itself was fine but we felt like the victims of misleading advertising.

    The bus was great with earphones provided by the bus line to listen to English narration. We purchased the triple tour which included a boat tour tour on the Elbe river.

    The tour narration was only in German with no translation until we remembered we had Google translate which enabled us to read the translation.

    The lake tour we were told we were too late to participate yesterday as the last boat left at 3:30 pm. We were there about 4:10. They said we could go the next day at 10:30 a. m.

    There are different lines for the hop on hop off so beware of this as we did Line A yesterday and we're going to use the same ticket as it should have been good for 24 hours. When we boarded the bus today we didn't realize it was Line C which we were required to buy a new ticket.

    Save your money and don't go on this tour! The websites and guides tell you that they offer English tours but the bus tour guide mostly spoke German. The bus driver who sold us the ticket barely spoke English and didn't tell us that there is only one English speaking tour per day at 12pm but this company offers a German speaking cruise every 30 minutes! Bus and boat do not offer Wifi which good quality tours offer. Also this company does not offer headphones to listen to the tour in English.

    Ok if you just want to see the harbor from sea level.
    If you are not fluent in German just forget it.
    There is NO information in English.
    The skipper only speaks in German ... and by the looks of it it was funny for the German guests.
