The tour with Mrs. A. Lübken was very interesting and informative

Mrs. Lübken brought us very close to Hamburg through her interesting explanations, she knew a ton and did a great job answering all of our questions. We were out and about for almost 3 hours, which was almost a bit to hectic at times, we had almost no time to take pictures, but we'd do the tour again right away and definitely recommend it.

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!

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.
