      Außerordentlich interessante und kurzweilige Tour durch das Kontorhausviertel und die Speicherstadt. Obwohl wir seit vielen Jahren hier leben sahen wir unglaublich viel was uns bisher völlig entgangen war. Einen herzlichen Dank an unsere kompetente Führerin die uns mit ihrer eigenen Begeisterung förmlich mitgerissen hat. Wir hätten ihr noch stundenlang zuhören können.

      Beste Stadtführerin

      Wir waren 28 Personen und wurden in 2 Gruppen mit je einer Stadtführerin aufgeteilt.Das war schon mal ein sehr professioneller Auftakt.Unsere Stadtführerin (ich glaube sie hieß Vera, Nachname weiß ich leider nicht mehr). Sie war sehr kompetent, unglaublich sympathisch und hat uns die tolle Stadt Hamburg mit ihrem großen Wissen und mit historischem Hintergrund und netten Anekdoten näher gebracht. So macht eine Stadtführung Spaß. Habe sehr viel gelernt! Kann diese 2 Stündige Stadtführung nur weiter empfehlen!!!
