We had an incredible 3 hours with Dean! He emailed us a couple of times before the walking tour to get a sense for our interests then designed a walking tour for us. Dean met us promptly at our hotel, helped us get public transport tickets and off we went. There was discussion about history, local tales, current events, governmental policies and so much more. Dean even gave us tips on what sites to visit over the next couple of days too. We highly recommend this tour!

An amazing treasure hunt! I’ve played a few others and especially the ones lead by mobile phones were always very underwhelming. This was different because you used physical materials and everything felt well thought throug. Would definitely recommend!

Top guide, only to be recommended. and the best fish sandwich in Hamburg where small sharks get big fish...

The guide knew a lot about the area and did not focus on the typical.

War sehr spannend und Elli ein sehr sympathischer Tourguide
