    Our city guide was called Gregor Schmitz, he was great! He told lively, detailed, professional and very lively. It was a lot of fun to listen to him, we learned a lot about the origins of Hamburg, signs on houses and churches and special Hamburg citizens. Thank you very much for the entertaining, educational, interesting and fun tour!

    The tour with Birgit Enke was funny, amusing and very informative. With a lot of knowledge about mysticism, Birgit introduced us to a completely different part of Hamburg. Even as a native of Hamburg, I was surprised by many places and asked myself where else I had always looked. It was a gift for my son and he really liked it too. Many Thanks.
