A wonderful way to experience authentic Hamburg!


My friend and I had a truly wonderful time with or Greeter Gordon. He met us at our hostel and was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about showing us the lovely city of Hamburg. It was lovely to walk with him and learn so much about the history and significance of Hamburg, and we both felt that there was no question (big or small) that he couldn’t answer. Having such a personal showcase of a city is vey special, and we would absolutely recommend him (and Greeters) to anyone who’d love an authentic experience on their holiday.

Thanks for a wonderful time Gordon! Taylah 🙂

Chicago Loves Hamburg, Our Sister City

We had the good fortune to meet our Greeter Klaus twice. He met us at our hotel in the late afternoon to review our plans for our greet. Klaus once again met us at our hotel two days later and he showed us many areas of Hamburg that we would not have found on our own. We visited the Elbtunnel, took a ferry boat to Finkenwerder and back to Neumühlen. We met up with another Greeter, Edith Johnson, and later visited the Beatles-Platz in the Reeperbahn. We finished the wonderful long day at the top of the “Dancing Towers” for a delightful refreshment.

Enriching our stay in Hamburg

Our experience with Hamburg Greeters was one of the more enjoyable times we had during our trip to five European cities. Rarely does one have the opportunity to see a city thru the eyes of a local. Yes, we truly enjoyed the sites our Greeter, Jörn, introduced and explained to us, but more importantly and what was truly special was the engaging conversations we had with Jörn on a variety of topics, including, but not limited to: politics, history, architecture, and culture.
With Jörn we visited areas that would be considered popular with tourists, but more of our tour was about seeing sites, buildings and areas where tourists would not typically explore and this so enriched our stay in Hamburg.

Passionate and knowledgeable guide

We had a first-class walking tour with our Greeter Gordon. Passionate and knowledgeable about his adopted city, he kept us interested throughout the walk. All six of us felt we’d learnt a huge amount about Hamburg’s history and commercial development. So much better than any guide book.

Many thanks Gordon!

Great experience


Extremely enjoyable, interesting and informative. We learnt a huge amount.

Spread The Word- Excellent Greeters

We meet our Hamburger Greeter Fred at JUNGFERNSTIEG Station just outside the Apple Store, a very convenient location. Fred gave us excellent instructions on how to purchase subway tickets, ride the train and how to locate stops. Some of the walk included the Town Hall, a stroll along the river Elbe, a ride on the ferry to see the new ELBPHILHARMONIE hall.

We enjoyed learning about Hamburg, past and present. Fred was very knowledgeable, any question asked, he was able to provide us with an answer. As the tour came to an end, Fred suggested one last stop where we could try their specialty Würstchen (sausage).

Excellent tour, informative guide, time well spent.

Hamburg Visit

I wish to thank you for the wonderful guided tour of Hamburg two weeks ago. It introduced me to the delights of the city and its history which I would never have gleamed from a guide book.

Very belatedly a huge thank to our Greeter Gordon for his courtesy, time, knowledge in ‘greeting’ us in Hamburg. He gave us a great and non guide book insight into his city that we could not possibly otherwise have got for such a short visit. All of us say we will definitely be back.

Gordon is a great ambassador for the city.

Kind regards, Elizabeth and Morette

A fantastic ambassador for a fantastic city!

I spent a wonderful day in the company of Bennet on a hugely insightful walking tour around Hamburg. Bennet is a walking encyclopaedia about Hamburg, from the history of every quarter and every building, to best place to buy second hand records … or get the best kebab in the city! Bennet was so knowledgeable and passionate about his home city, and it was brilliant that he took so much time out of his day to share that knowledge with me on my first ever visit to Hamburg. A fantastic ambassador for a fantastic city!

Thank you Susanne and Hamburg Greeters

Hamburg Greeters is a fantastic service and it really enhanced our short trip to Hamburg. Our Greeter Susanne was the perfect match for us and she provided us with a lovely and informative introduction to Hamburg. Susanne was friendly and welcoming and I would recommend her and the greet service to any visitor to Hamburg.
