    A great tour with Steffen along the Outer Alster and the old ramparts to HafenCity, over the Freihafenelbbrücke, along the shipyards, over the old Elbtunnel back with a detour to the Schanzenviertel. The tour is balanced with historical, current and future-oriented impressions. In addition to specialist knowledge, funny anecdotes and personal conversations, we were able to get to know Hamburg from a completely different side. A nice side effect was that the 4 of us in the family did the tour alone with Steffen. Personal requests for the route were accepted directly. We look forward to next time and highly recommend this tour.

    Etwas schwierig war der Treffpunkt zu erkennen. Dann aber sehr bewundernswert die Ruhe und Kompetenz des erfahrenen Tourleiters, der uns zum Zuhören veranlasste und die gesamte Runde sehr spannend und interessant bleiben ließ. Uns(10 Personen) hat es sehr gut gefallen und wir sind mit positiven Informationen aus der Tour herausgegangen. Die Strecke durch die Stadt und das neue Hafen City Viertel war sehr gut befahrbar und man sah vieles anderes als nur die üblichen Sehenswürdigkeiten, die aber irgendwie auch mit enthalten waren, durch Erklärungen und immer wieder tolle Ausblicke auf die Stadt . Die Fahrräder waren zwar älter aber voll funktionsfähig und bequem fünf Sterne absolut verdient !
