The best way to get to know the city with Sabby's guide. His knowledge and warmth make this experience an unforgettable memory. Do not stop encouraging yourself to explore the wonderful corners of Hamburg that you could only reach on foot or by bicycle.

Everything was great, from the online booking to the experience itself. Bicycles with a back pedal are unfamiliar and not easy to use...thanks to the guide Fabian...he did a great job. Greetings and more CAVIEZEL from Switzerland

I really enjoyed the tour and it was great to hear so much history and also see a lot! Phil was a great tour guide too and nice to talk to some Aussie's after mostly been the only one for the rest of my holiday.

The bike ride with André was wonderful. Definitely recommendable. A lot of interesting facts told in a very pleasant way. Sightseeing by bike is great

A very special bike tour, something completely different than just seeing the highlights of Hamburg.
