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!
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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Hamburg!
Our Greeter Marlis is an extremely welcoming and bubbly woman. Her command of the English language is fantastic, and her knowledge of the city of Hamburg provided us with an extremely interesting and informative tour.
We would recommend her and ‘Hamburg Greeter’s’ to anyone that is travelling to Hamburg for a city break.
Huge thanks to our Greeter Susanne for an amazing start to our weekend in Hamburg. She listened to our interests and managed to take us around the city to view an amazing array of sights. She was prompt, polite and professional and as the afternoon progressed we all relaxed and we had lots of fun. We walked and walked and walked. No question was too silly and her knowledge was immense. It set the tone for us to continue a fantastic weekend where we felt we really got to see Hamburg. Thank you!
I visited Hamburg on what was such a spontaneous trip, it was short and it was all I needed to switch off before taking on a big project. I hadn’t really planned what to do or see. Typically I’m not a tourist kind of person, I like to blend in like a local. I like understanding the city, capturing its true essence and have a conversation about its history with citizen / resident and make new friends. I think, I managed to embrace the city by meeting my Greeter Susanne, who is a Hamburg Greeter. She was warm, friendly and invited me to know Hamburg from her perspective. Meeting her on my first day of the trip, set the scene well for me and I managed to explore more about the city based on her recommendation. We spoke about everything from architecture, culture, religion to Brexit, all over coffee and cake and length walk where nature witnessed our connection.

It was the best day of our visit in hamburg. Our Greeter Martin is the best! We got to see places that we will never go to if we will not do this tour with Martin. He arranged the tour excellently like we asked him and he always added some story related to the Jewish history.
I took a delightful tour with my Greeterin Inge. We started at the Elbphilharmonie, went to the old Elbtunnel (what a wonderful surprise) and then we toured to the Isemarkt a bi-weekly market. I spend 2-3 months per year in Europe for work and pleasure. It is these experiences which are always the highlight. Half of my interest is in the sights and the other half is to get to know someone from another culture. I was very comfortable speaking with Inge about a range of topics. She is well prepared to discuss the landmarks and when necessary had a set of index cards to confirm the facts. She moved easily around the city and was a joy to get to know. Additionally, she recommended many buildings that I should see on my own. I hope to have the pleasure of touring with her again.
We wanted to tell lur Greeter Rainer what a wonderful and simply fabulous day we had with him. My daughters and I really enjoyed him and his wonderful knowledge of Hamburg. We all agreed that this was the best part of our journey and would not have had anywhere close to the same experience in Hamburg without him.
Thank you and hope he is doing well.
Fantastic…!!! Our Greeter Gordon was so welcoming and very well informed about the places and history of Hamburg, which he generously shared with me several hours. He is an excellent guide, speaks very good and clear English and I thoroughly enjoyed the morning walking around city with him. It was a amazing and very interesting walk with a lot of background information about Hamburg. Gordon was a very nice and pleasant guide with a lot of knowledge.
Please thank Gordon and I thanks Hamburg Greeter for a wonderful journey…
Gordon was an extremely good Greeter. He made us feel very welcome and he was very knowledgeable regarding Hamburg. I have been to Hamburg several times but my wife hasn’t and at the end of the greet we both felt very much better informed on many aspects of Hamburg that I have not previously experienced.
