This very nice tour features a guide that give commentary in German only. The rest of us must listen to the pre recorded commentary through our earbuds. We noticed that there were parts of the tour where the guide had lots to say while we had to listen to interlude music. To make matters worse, the driver forgot on several occasions to resume the commentary after it had been paused at a stop. With a more comprehensive commentary, this could have been an excellent tour.
Not Happy

We found Hamburg Germany, very dirty and lots of gratify. The hop and on bus was far from the cruise terminal. Did not enjoy at all!
Check the bus before you hop on

Before you hop on the bus check to make sure the translation meets your need. Some only have live German narratives, Other have recorded narratives in multiple languages in addition to the live German narratives. The consistency of the narratives varies from bus to bus.
Poor arrangement and customer responsibility

I had book this tour before I reach Hamburg, the tour on 19.08.2018 (Sunday) and just to bad in hamburg having a cycling event on the same day. I had go to the meet up point as stated in the booking ticket. and I reach they I didn't saw any double decker, and I just wait,After 30 min, I founds something not right, so I ask to other double decker company for advice. And the driver told me that the red double decker is not working today as the cycling event is taking place. I feel so helpless as i didn't prepare to walk by my own and my plan is gone. I got no choice and being advice to write them and email to get my refund. other than this money pay, how they want to compensate my plan crash, my trip get mess up with this, they can just no show and never drop us an email to inform. i just buy this trip on 16.08.2018 thru online, i will not believe the cycling event didn't publish to the public before 16.08.2018. most of the road had closed down on that day. Becareful when you book this trip, check clearly on the hamburg event before you book. the company will not care to inform or block the date for purchase.
Good information on city sites.
