Fascinating & entertaining

I had already spent a little time becoming familiar with Hamburg and this tour pulled the history - both old and more recent - together. My guide Bob imparted his deep knowledge from both his research and lived experiences in Hamburg in an entertaining and engaging manner. I was also very grateful that Bob managed to give an English tour for myself and another English speaking traveller rather than me joining a dual-language tour with 17 German speakers. Thank you Bob - this was very accomodating and presented us with a great tour. Highly recommended!

Eine sehr interessante Tour durch Hamburgs Mitte. Der Guide vermittelte die Geschichte Hamburgs von der Gründung bis zur Gegenwart an den einzelnen Stationen anschaulich und verständlich. Vom Ehrenmal für die beiden Weltkriege am Rathausmarkt, dem Rathaus, der Ruine der Nicolai-Kirche bis zur Elbphilharmonie in der Speicherstadt. Obwohl wir bereits vieles von früheren Reisen nach Hamburg kannten, haben wir viele neue Informationen erhalten.
