Hamburg, Germany

When I tell my guests my only reason for coming to Hamburg was Hamburg itself, they always laugh, thinking it's just a cheesy joke for tourists, while the real reason is something more rational - studies, work, or family.

Even coming to Hamburg for love would have sounded more reasonable - unless it's the love to the city itself. However, that's exactly how it happened - after a few visits, I packed my bags and took a night train from Vienna, hoping to find my place in the vibrant melting pot on the Elbe.
My courage was rewarded, and very soon I found a job which seemed to be made for me - introducing travellers to Hamburg and explaining, what attracts so many people to this hidden gem of Europe for the past millennium, and what makes it such a special place.

Hamburg offers so many tour topics and routes, and I can't really pick a favourite. Whereas I enjoy giving group tours too, I also love providing a customized experience, centred around the guests and tailored to their interest.
To get an idea of my best Hamburg walks, check the tours listed on the website.

I'm looking forward to being your personal Hamburg guide!

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a private Russian speaking tour with Ian last week and it was really great and highly appreciated by everyone: the competencies of Ian and his motivation are beyond any expectations: we learnt so much about the city in just 2 hours! I will recommend him without hesitation and will come back again, there are so many things to see and to learn in this wonderful city. Ian is well-organized, passionate about the city and speaks fluently a number of languages, we enjoyed the visit a lot!
