Our tour of the clubs with our tour guide Jes was awesome! We were in Hamburg 2 weeks ago and had booked a tour guide, and that was really the best thing we could do. Through Jes we got to know some great clubs and were allowed to drop by and go directly to all the clubs. And in every club there was also a shot on the house. The mood was great. Jes could motivate everyone to dance or sing. It really was an unforgettable evening! Thanks to our tour guide Jes♥️ Greetings Natalie and Julia ♥️

A harbor tour is definitely part of a Hamburg city trip and we have decided on exactly this. At first I had concerns about the small size of the boat. I was accordingly enthusiastic about the driving skills and the anecdotes between the interesting facts about the port and the warehouse district from our guide Marco ☆☆☆☆☆ great praise! Highly recommended even with grumpy teenagers in tow

Unfortunately, the energy-saving crisis caught up with us... our shipper informed us beforehand and he made every effort to take every light with him, all in all it was still great, I would book again at any time! Greetings go out to our Schipper Janis
