The explanations of our very nice guide Christa about the new Hafencity and the Speicherstadt were very interesting! It was a lot of fun, even though we were out and about in the rain almost the whole time in Hamburg's bad weather. We have already taken part in several tours of this kind in Hamburg. The culinary samples in the Hafencity were good, but we liked the other tours (Schanzenviertel and Eppendorf) even better. However, the providers of the samples were often long-established or had come as lateral entrants. So there were more interesting things to tell about it and there were more unusual food and drinks.

The harbor tour that took place at the beginning of the tour was very well organized and the information was conveyed competently and clearly by the captain. We can only thank you again for that. The subsequent tour with guide "Hannes" was incredibly empathetic and responsive to the group. He spanned a great and informative arc around Hamburg, Speicherstadt, flood protection, Elbphilharmonie and Hafencity. We would also like to thank Hannes for the excellent tour. Very competent and selfless. I can only recommend him very much.

The tour with Ute was very informative and entertaining. The culinary delights are real delicacies and there is something for every taste. We have the feeling that we now know Hamburg and HafenCity better. Ute always had an answer to our questions about the city outside of HafenCity, which made us feel well informed. We thank you very much for the tour and will definitely get in touch with you again during our next stay in Hamburg. Greetings Petra and Andreas from Tyrol

It was great. I had my kids with me and it was easy to go along with. It was not too much information and it wasn’t so complicated. The food was great and Christa explained a lot of interesting things about Hamburg. We learned a lot and it wasn’t very rushed or too full. We got many recommendations for good restaurants and museums.

Very entertaining tour with delicious breaks. We learned a lot of historical background and anecdotes, presented with wit and passion. The crowning finale ... the Elphi pannoramadeck and some details on the building history. We enjoyed everything very much, despite the Hamburg weather.
