5 stars... what more can I say?!

Our guide didn't know that we'd booked her, but I guess it wasn't her fault! Everything our guide told us was just great, if we take a trip to Hamburg again, then we want HER. Many thanks for this very informative and entertaining tour! Final verdict: Awesome!

Interesting and varied tour

This tour provides interesting insights into things including not-so-well-known aspects of Hamburg's history, and Mrs. Lübken led the tour with lots of knowledge and heartfelt dedication. Would love to go again!

I would be happy to recommend this tour. The meeting point at the Davidwache is great, then the Kiez Museum is ideal as an introduction. The competent and entertaining tour gave us a very good insight.

Very good and cool tour

The tour still took place even though there were only two of us there taking part. I'd never been brought so close to the lifeblood of Hamburg before. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour!!!

I enjoyed the round trip and so did my guests.

As an almost-Hamburg resident I could get some information out of it. I would have preferred to have gone more in-depth with the visit to the Michel. At the time that wasn't possible.
