Super venue, fabulous guide, great tour.

Probably the best tour I've ever taken. The guide was great, clear, logical, interesting, with great presentation skills and all the facts and figures without them being overpowering. The venue is dramatic and full of crazy ideas. OK the costs overran a bit, but I think you got value for money in the mid term at least if not in the short term.

Wir haben am Sa 14.03.2020 eine Elphi-Führung gebucht. Am Treffpunkt wurde uns mitgeteilt, daß die Plaza kurzfristig wegen corona gesperrt wurde. Dafür wurde uns kostenlos eine Hafenrundfahrt angeboten. Unser Guide Jan hat eine fabelhafte und interessante Führung im Außenbereich gemacht und uns mit seiner angenehmen Art eine kurzweilige Zeit beschert. Wir sind dankbar, daß wir diese Führung noch machen durften und kommen auf alle Fälle, nach corona, wieder in diese tolle Stadt
