An absolutely recommendable tour in Hamburg. Our guide Edwin told us a lot about the history, Elbphilharmonie, Speicherstadt. The Elbphilharmonie alone is breathtaking, a very chic building. He also showed us a number of old shots of how things used to look at the individual locations. It was a great experience for us "children from the village" - we would want to go on a tour with Edwin again at any time.

The tour was very good, Michael could tell a lot, very interesting and entertaining about Elphi, Speicherstadt and Hamburg. Two criticisms: It would be nice if the guide would come to the Elphi and give information there directly. And with 28, - EUR for 2.5 hours I find the tour priced quite ambitious.

The tour is perfect for learning about the Elbphilharmonie and the Speicherstadt. The tour took place at a pleasant pace and could be mastered well by all age groups in our group of 20. Our guide Michael was great - he has excellent knowledge, can shine with historical data and was also available for funny anecdotes. He was able to answer all questions - a guided tour depends on the guide! Thanks Michael! Despite the grayish weather, it was a great tour!
