ATG Alster-Touristik GmbH Hamburg
ATG Alster-Touristik GmbH, a shipping company in Hamburg, offers excursion tours on the Alster and partly through the harbor of Hamburg. The fleet includes 18 ships.
With our new technology – the iTour SmartBox – we offer our guests the possibility to set off the audio tours via ship GPS.
The SmartBox transmits the audio content to the guests’ smartphone devices. This ensures correct triggering and saves battery consumption of the receivers.
In this way, the shipping guests can also explore the sights of the Hanseatic city from the waterside in English.
