A very nice tour

The tour was just awesome. My family and I are from Hamburg and wanted to take a nice guided walk with relatives from outside, but we also learned so many new things that I more than recommend this tour not only to visitors in Hamburg but also to local residents. Kudos to our guide!!! I really can only recommend it.

Ein ganz großes DANKE!!! Es war ein Genuss von Jakob Lange so viel über seine Zeit zu erfahren. Die nette, unaufdringliche, kenntnisreiche und mit Anekdoten gespickte Führung durch ein interessantes Stück Hamburg waren das Highlight unseres Hamburg-Wochenendes. Den Sprung ins Heute, in die Speicherstadt und Hafencity hat er bravourös gemeistert und auch hier mit tiefem historischem und aktuellem geglänzt. Abgerundet noch mit ein paar guten Tipps für den weiteren Abend, rundrum ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Vielen Dank
