We were lucky and were the only ones on the tour with our super friendly and funny guide Bettina. We come to Hamburg regularly and have already done various tours, but still learned new things. The food stops are well chosen and it tasted really delicious everywhere. There were Iranian samosas, Vietnamese summer rolls, Hamburg currywurst, an Indian dish and a Franzbrötchen at the end. At all stops there was also a veggie variant. The tour is suitable for all ages and also for long-established Hamburg visitors. Thanks again to Bettina for the very pleasant and fun tour!
