Our Team

We are an independent tour provider which operates only in Hamburg. We started in June 2014 with two guides; soon we had a small team and founded a company. Now we are 4 and an additional person for support.

Today we cooperate with a number of passionate Hamburg guides, all of them present their tour in their own individual way and tells the city´s stories from their unique perspective, e.g. as a local born and raised here, as an American who made this city his second home, as an international city planner or someone who simply came here for love!

Brent

Tourguide, Managing Partner

Brent came to Hamburg in 1998 to pursue his studies in Music. He dreaded the winter but fell in love with the city. he worked in a few orchestras around Germany but eventually decided to come back to Hamburg and start showing tourists the most beautiful city in Germany. Brent spends the rest of his time taking care of his son, sometimes a junior tour giude on his tours that corrects all of Brent´s mistakes and tells him what he forgot to say. This is what visitors say about Brent´s tour: My visitor from Paris on a whirlwind 6 conference day visit, and I, managed to do the tour with Brent from California today - and we couldn't have used up the little time we had together better. Brent was amusing and led a great tour full of anecdotes and all kinds of interesting tit-bits on Hamburg - buildings, people - the good and the infamous ;-), history, food, beer and ended with the interactive beheading of klaus the Pirate just next to the 650 million budgeted Elbe Philarmonie building at the brand new swanky Hafen-city area. He led us through the old city land marks and narrow alley ways leading down to the water near Speicherstadt, to where the Great Fire began, to where we could get typical Hamburg Matjes. Don't miss... Fully worth it!

Matej

Tourguide, Managing Partner

Matej left his home country Slovakia at a young age to study in the south of Germany, where he was mistakenly called "matjes" on a daily basis. After stops in Marseille and Paris, where he exchanged economy for urban planning, he followed the call of destiny and ended up in Hamburg, a city that consumes tons of "matjes"-herring every year. Having tryied "matjes" for the first time, Matej now doesn't believe in destiny any more but is still glad he ended up in such a wonderful city. Matej has a Master in urban planning and takes great pleasure especially in talking about Hamburg's development projects of the late 19th and early 20th century and in exploring the city by bike. This is what visitors said about Matej's tour: "Today's city center visit - the best way to enjoy Hamburg. Matej thank you very much!"

Stefanie

Customer Care, Office

Born and raised in a little village of Northern Germany, Steffi always got itchy feet. Therefore, she likes guided tours best in foreign cities where she can be a participant herself. Here in Hamburg she supports the team in the back office. Since she masters her full-time job as a Management Assistant with ease, she claims to have fun answering questions in her spare time. As a certified Foreign Language Business Assistant, she supports you in English, French and Spanish. Not being a tour guide, she competes directly with Robin and for equality reasons asks to change the company’s name to "Steffi, Robin and the Tourguides". It’s only a matter of time ;-)

Tilman

Tourguide, Managing Partner

Tilman originated from the Münsterland, a Region in Western Germany. He studied Biomedical Engineering in Jena, Thuringia and worked as an Engineer several years. Finally he came to Hamburg in 2001. In 2009 he decided to leave the professional hamster wheel and started to to this and that - “düt un dat” as we say in Hamburg. In 2011 he started to expose the remarkable aspects of Hamburg to visitors and locals, by foot, bike and bicycle rickshaw. The passion to explore foreign countries and cities awaked in several journeys to Asia, Europe and America: “Probably the best was China by bike!”. His favourite are the little specialities by the wayside, just to enter a house entrance and discover a nice staircase or a lovely inner courtyard.
