It was a very nice guide, who had a good loud voice and had many stories to tell about the creation and construction of the Elbphilharmonie. Although our location was next to a stand with a very loud music, the man had a very good was very exciting and entertaining and was fun.thank you very much

Super venue, fabulous guide, great tour.

Probably the best tour I've ever taken. The guide was great, clear, logical, interesting, with great presentation skills and all the facts and figures without them being overpowering. The venue is dramatic and full of crazy ideas. OK the costs overran a bit, but I think you got value for money in the mid term at least if not in the short term.

Die Führung an sich war sehr gut. Leider hängt der Erfolg sehr von der Umgebung ab. Wir waren an einem sehr belebten Tag, daher war es ringsherum sehr laut, wofür der Guide natürlich nichts kann. Was ein bisschen besser geregelt werden könnte, ist die Gruppengrösse. Eine kleinere Gruppe wäre besser zusammen zu halten. Dennoch sehr zu empfehlen!
