  • Hi Jutta
    I am just writing to thank you so much for yesterday.

    We all agreed that Hamburg is a lovely city and that you really did it justice. (I think everybody enjoyed the beerkellar as well).

    The day just completed a really lovely short break and of course I would be more than happy to recommend you.

    Best wishes Daphne from UK

  • Dear Jutta
    I just want to let you know that the guided tour of Hamburg with Arianna was simply perfect. Both my family and myself enjoyed a lot. The tour was extremely amusing and interesting at the same time.

    Thanks for having proposed her as guide. For sure we will recommend the same tour to our friends

  • The best private tour guide in Hamburg!

    If you would like to see and learn all about Hamburg you must have Jutta as your guide!
    My husband and I spent 5 thoroughly enjoyable hours exploring the city together.
    A variety of activities kept us interested at all times.
    Jutta's love of Hamburg made this a highlight of our 2 week tour of Germany.
    What fun!
    Do not visit Hamburg without contacting her!!

  • Highly recommended!

    Thank you Jutta - we had a great time on your tour today. I only wish we had taken your tour on our first day in Hamburg instead of the tour bus we took!

    The places you showed us and the history you shared with us were really fantastic - it was great to learn about the city and to orientate ourselves.

    Plus you made it a very fun and enjoyable afternoon.

    I would highly recommend these tours, Jutta speaks excellent English and for bonus points, knows what's in the purple bags... Just ask her 🙂
