Robin and the Tourguides: Is a young and authentic local company working in the industry of city tours and stays in Hamburg. We and the independent self-employed tour guides we collaborate with are Hamburgians and want you to experience Hamburg in this way, in which we do daily: with all the beauty and charm, but also its inconsistencies and cracks, that belong to every city. Or better said, authentic. We do tours that we ourselves would want: Authentic: We go further into the causes and take a look behind the facade. Local: We bring all of our Hamburg experiences with us. Personal: Every guide presents Hamburg from their own view with their personal history to the city. Special: We discover places that one as a tourist usually would not see and tell the history of them. Entertaining: We steal each other best jokes ;-) Moreover, we can organize for you the many areas of Hamburg: Historic city centre, St.Pauli, Speicherstadt (old warehouse district), Elbphilharmonie, Hafencity, Blankenese, craft beer tastings, harbour boat tours, coffee and tea tastings...and so on. Local and social obligations We are a small local company in Hamburg and are growing year for a year together with our city. We are happy to contribute to our local community. We donate every year to charitable organizations: On our tours, we also especially support small and local companies, cafés, restaurants, breweries, to give a part of our success back to the community. We offer fair conditions to independent self-employed guides collaborating with us. We are a company that is founded, organized, and run by guides themselves so we create conditions for us and all guides that we ourselves would want. All of our financial transactions are done with GLS Bank, Germany´s first bank that works according to social-, environmental- and ecological-sustainable concepts.
