On this interesting tour you get to see 3 of the most fascinating sights in Hamburg: St. Michael’s Church, the Old Elbe Tunnel, and the harbor.

Check out the widow homes from the 17th century behind the church in the Krayenkamp, the last remaining examples of typical courtyards buildings around courtyards in Hamburg. You then walk through the Portuguese quarter in the direction of the landing stages. Here you can see the two ships by the shore: Rickmer Rickmers and Cap San Diego.

Informative and entertaining

We booked this tour for a group of American students in English. It was a lot of fun and the nice guide led us confidently and with a lot of expertise through the Speicherstadt and Hafencity. His English was very good. Even about our subsequent tour program, he was able to tell us some facts and figures from the hand (Elbphilharmonie). Thank you very much and will definitely come back to you for the next year.

Brilliant tour guide, very informative!

The guide we had was fantastic. It was only me and my boyfriend and the guide for the entire thing so we were very fortunate. The guide was really lovely, pointing out cafes, restaurants and bars that we could go and visit whilst staying in Hamburg. All in all is was a great two hours!
