I would like to give high recommendation to Ian Shulman. He speaks very well English, German and Russian. He is very knowledgeable about the subject he speaks, whether it is about the music (tour about Beatles in Hamburg) or city history. The important quality for me that he is trying to present tours which are different from other guides. Ian Shulman was punctual, have good manners and communication skills. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your review, Peter!
Ian was a very good guide. He definitely knew his history and obviously enjoys what he does. We were a group of a large family of different agesand he kept us all interested. I really liked that he told us many interesting historical stories and also pointedout his favorites and told us why. It was cold and raining but anyways he kept a great pace and we saw a lot!!!

My wife had been desperately looking for an English speaking tour (early in the week) of St Pauli. Ian was just what she ordered, with a perfect command of English! Not only personable, but knowledgeable far beyond our expectations. He made for compelling and insightful evening.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review Cliff!

Ian made the Beatles early years in Hamburg come alive by telling the stories associated with the locations that remain. He was an engaging tour guide and, and since we were Beatles fans from early 60s, he enhanced and refreshed our existing knowledge of the Beatles. Great fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your feedback Walter!

Ian was an excellent guide who gave us over a thousand years of Hamburg's history in a three hour tour, with the actual sites and structures to illustrate his stories. Personal tours with guides like Ian is the reason we book tours with locals instead of traveling along with 30 other people.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words, Walter!

I reserved a special private tour with Ian S. He customized the tour from a walking tour to a car tour as my husband has difficulty walking. Ian picked us up with a driver. This was good as it is hard to park in Hamburg and the car could wait for us at stops instead of parking. We made several stops at the most Important monuments and buildings and Ian gave us great explanations about the history, social and economic issues, and developments about each. It was a great tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback Joyce!

Ian was informative and interesting. He was also quite accommodating. We loved the history of the old city as well as the other areas… Jewish,Port, new areas that were once warehouses as well as the "typical Hamburg lunch spot he recommended. He brought Hamburg alive for us...thank you!

Ian was very knowledgable about Hamburg and gave us plenty of interesting information. My husband is in a wheelchair but Ian had hired a special car for us and nothing was too much trouble. Ian made our visit to Hamburg a most pleasurable experience. Many thanks.
