Nadine our guide is to be congratulated for giving us such an informative, interesting & inspiring tour. Her passion for the Elbphilharmonie was obvious & we were very fortunate to have her for our guide. Given we were the only 2 for the tour, we were delighted to have a private tour.

Although the originally set time of our tour was changed to later in the day, we thoroughly enjoyed the interesting tour presented by our guide Ramona. She was well informed on details of the building history of the striking Elbphilharmonie and answered our questions well. I would recommend Ramona to anyone wishing a private tour.

La visite dispense tous les dessous de cet emblématique édifice, de sa conception à son ouverture, une histoire d'amour et de haine dans le coeur des Hambourgeois. N'ayant pas eu le choix de la formule du tour, j'ai été contrainte de prendre la version premium, avec Franzbrötchen et café, qui n'ajoute rien à la visite.
