What people are saying about St. Georg
It was a very interesting, fun and entertaining bike tour. This gave us insights into the "real" Hamburg, with stories, pictures and impressions that you would never have experienced and seen on your own. The special charm of this multi-cultural city was conveyed very well by our guide. The tour is definitely worth the money. Even the "rickety bikes" have turned out to be comfortable. Gladly again!
That was a great tour !!! The guide brought us the history of the city and the district with many backgrounds and contexts, peppered with anecdotes, "dark" stories, experiences ... entertaining and amusing. The selected delicacies were a great selection from the so many gastronomic nationalities that can be found in St. Georg. The curiosity and interest for the other tours is aroused. We will be back.
