    Bernd led our tour really well. He told interesting, little-known information about Hamburg districts and their history. He also responded to the wishes of the participants as to where we would prefer to go and made sure that everyone arrived safely. We had a flat tire on the way, but it was quickly patched and we could continue. We would do another tour with Bernd :-)

    It was a very interesting, fun and entertaining bike tour. This gave us insights into the "real" Hamburg, with stories, pictures and impressions that you would never have experienced and seen on your own. The special charm of this multi-cultural city was conveyed very well by our guide. The tour is definitely worth the money. Even the "rickety bikes" have turned out to be comfortable. Gladly again!

    Grandiose thing, thank you Vincent - recommended to every Hamburg visitor!

    We booked this bike tour online in advance for our group of 6 adults and 3 children. Communication with the organizer was very good, but we were probably at the meeting point for our pickup on the wrong side of the street and were first picked up by the guide of another company. The matter cleared up quickly at the bike station at the Juridicum and a Danish family joined the group. Our guide, Vincent, a Ur-Hamburger Jung, who I would highly recommend, changed the route a bit at our request and with consideration for the younger children and we saved the neighborhood. The tour was varied with plenty of stops and a tour of Vincent. On our next visit, I'm sure we will book a bike tour with him again. You can never get the amount of information offered by bus or on foot on your own. THANK YOU
