At first when we boarded the bus the guide asked if there was anyone who spoke English. He was on the top of the bus and we were on the bottom. Despite our yelling that we did, he continued the tour ONLY in German. That made it pretty useless for me . The circuit is extremely long and we had planned on using it to first get a glimpse of things and then start getting off. The circuit was so long that we did some walking and then took the metro. I feel like a paid a lot of money for not much.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2012

I'm sorry to say that if you don't understand German, forget this trip particularly the harbour cruise. We sat there like idiot on the harbour cruise while all enjoyed laughter and jokes and not a word of English was spoken. As for the bus tour, I understand and speak a good deal of German although my wife speaks none and i explained to her that what they were explaining in English was about one tenth of what they were saying in German. It would seem that these tours are directed at German tourists and not International. Hamburg is a beautiful city to see but as for the method of our sightseeing I wouldn't waste my money again!!!
