Bob is a great tour guide. Not only is he truly enthusiastic about the tour, but he is also verh knowledgeable. Taking a tour is really worth it with him by your side: he can crack a joke when the rainshowers come in and he has plenty anecdotes to share. This will truly enlighten your stay. 1000% would recommend


Bob was excellent, very informative and just the right amount of detail delivered with context. He gave us loads of more ideas to explore Hamburg, we going to have to go again. If taking this tour do it at the beginning of your trip, Bob gave us lots of pointers to get the best out of Hamburg.


The guide gave us a comprehensive and interesting stories about Hamburg tour spots. I am satisfied with his good explanation and guide. However, it was very hot, almost scorching hot. We walked under the blazing sun. He should have let us listen to him in the shade as possible. We were put in the hot sun every listening time. In addition, the tour took about three hours, i.e., extra time of 30 minutes. Accordingly, we needed cool fresh water, but we did not have a short time to stop by at a store.


Bob was full of informative stories during our walk. Our small group that day allowed flexibility for questions to lead the conversation in many additional interesting directions, and even to stop for coffee. Thanks Bob!


Great Tour! Bob was a very knowledgeable guide, who gave insightful backstories for everything he showed us. Would definitely recommend this tour.


We had a fantastic time with Bob! Very detailed and attentive guide, and we learned so much about Hamburg and Germany. Must do!
