Unser Guide Kai erschien erst 30 Minuten nach dem vereinbarten Termin am Treffpunkt! Es gab kein Entschuldigen oder sonst ein Wort des Bedauerns. Als erstes wollte er von uns den Vornamen wissen und sorgte schon mal für Unbehagen. Zwei unserer Damen sind gut über 70 Jahre alt und die wollen das halt mal nicht! Wir sind gerade mal 1,5 km durch die Hafencity bzw Speicherstadt gekommen. Entweder waren wir zu gut informiert oder unser Guide nur zu oberflächig - Schade wir hatten schon wesentlich bessere Touren. Die Tour endete mit dem Satz: Ich möchte von euch noch ein kleines Dankeschön und hielt die Hand auf! Sorry, wenn ich Trinkgeld geben möchte, erwarte ich eine bessere Leistung und dann gebe ich es auch gerne! Er war dann auch enttäuscht, dass er von uns insgesamt 10 € erbettelt hat und nicht pro Person! Ein besonderes Lob geht an den jungen Mann am Telefon, der bemüht war den Führer zu erreichen und hat sich bei uns vielmals entschuldigt!

Our guide was Hannes, he was very kind and had a very rich way of expressing himself and explaining. It was very interesting, we had a walk around as planned and learned exciting new things about Hamburg we didn’t know about. Loved it!
