Elbphilharmonie Guided Tour: From a scandal to a wonder
- Duration: 1 hour
We booked to go on the Tour and turned up about 2o minutes before the schuduled time. Other people arrived and we figured there was German speaking group and and English speaking group. The german gude arrived but no English Guide. At about 10 minutes after the start time I sent and email and then approach the German guide and to ask him what was happening. He phoned the booking company and got to speak to a girl. First she said we arrived too late and then changed her response that we booked too late. I said we booked two days ago, so she said it was canclled because there was not enough guests. But there were 7 people waiting. She that said we could do the tour the next day, but 5 of the 7 said they could not do so I asked her for a guarantee that it woul go ahead. So we turned up the next day and did the tour with just 3 guests. While the tour was good and informative the booking company is just plain shonky.
A fascinating building - and the story was told in an engaging and thorough manner by our guide Andre. Very lucky to be only 2 solo travellers with this guide so I feel I really got to hear all about this truly stunning building and have all my questions answered. Would highly recommend.
Maika was an excellent guide and answered any questions the group might have. She was very well informed and knew a lot about the topic she was presenting. We were very pleased and enjoyed the tour.
Maike, vielen lieben Dank für Deine Führung! Es war informativ, interessant und du wir konnten dich immer gut verstehen und hören, was nicht wirklich selbstverständlich ist. Danke!
Chris was a nice guide. It was a pleasant tour although everything he told and all places you come to places where also avaailable online and with the free admitance ticket.
