    Eine sehr schöne Tour

    Die Tour war einfach nur genial. Meine Familie und ich kommen zwar aus Hamburg und wollten mit Verwandten von außerhalb einen schönen geführten Spaziergang machen, aber auch wir haben so viel Neues erfahren, dass ich diese Tour nicht nur Besuchern in Hamburg sondern auch Hamburgern mehr als empfehle. Ganz dickes Lob an unseren Guide!!! Ich kann es wirklich nur weiterempfehlen.
