Great except for pre printed voucher requirement.

It was all fine except it required a pre printed voucher. Sometimes when you’re travelling you don’t always have access to a printer. Old school and inconvenient.

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.

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.

you cant hear because the guide on the bus is so loud in german. he talked the whole time. anything we could hear was very short on info.they don't tell you what the stops are. it was the worst hop off and on bus I have ever been on and we have been on many. I think Barcelona being one of the best.

We joined the Red Bus tour at the cruise terminal, the voucher worked great. We did a full ride around first to see where to get off. We stopped at the market for a while then returned to the bus. Next stop was for the miniature railway village and there we spent almost 3hours. You can walk back to cruise ship from here if you wish. Earphones on bus provided English commentary. Worth the cost of the tickets.

Excellent live English speaking guide. Very extensive information provided and many stops in important tourist areas. Our lovely guide was individually helpful to us in locating the right stop to meet our friends and successfully coached us on how to use the underground to get to our meeting point. Highly recommend.

Busy, busy celebration day in Hamburg. Got a good start to the hop on tour -- but soon the tour circuit was cut short because of city-imposed traffic restrictions. The English interpretation of as we went along was spotty at best. But the informative map provided was helpful. When we hopped off where the route was going to alter, we asked out older, female guide ? for help in finding a nearby address for a restaurant. She gave us bad information. This caused us a long, unwanted walk in Hamburg never got to our desired foodie destination.

Dreadful tour...not enough...
Pete
, Jun 2017
Dreadful tour...not enough information given by Viator, to allow us to pick up any of the buses. We were told by Hamburg tourist help to get on local bus number 111 which would take us to one of the tour stops. Then we went on a mystery trip for 45 minutes, with a driver not willing to tell us which stop to get off and when we managed to make him understand, with one of several attempts to show him the hop on hop off stop names stop names, he simply said you should have got off 'back there'. We were on a bus full of cruise tourist like us, who were simply abandoned. Also there was the confusion about what company the 'Red Tour bus' was as there appeared to be several. A waste of time and money.
