What our guests say

Thank you very much for showing us some of Bremerhaven; past & present.
Even with the wind & rain, it was a perfect tour for us!  Standing in that room with the etching of the ship’s deck surrounding us, and then near where the passengers boarded for their journey to America–truly special for me.  It almost brought tears.

We enjoyed driving through the modern container/shipyard.  Learning more about you during our tour just added to the enjoyment.

The rest of our stay in Bremerhaven was also interesting as we spent time retracing emigration at the Auswanderer Haus, visited the Zoo am Meer, and read about the interesting history during our exploration of Historical Museum.  But your personal tour was the best!

We wish you the best.  Again, thank you!

Bremerhaven – bad weather – but we are not made of sugar!
Our Greeter Wolfgang appears punctually at our meeting point. With him we want to explore the city.
With a lot of charm he leads us expertly through the old harbor area. It is very interesting what he knows to tell.
In addition to all kinds of anecdotes, he does not conceal critical points in the city’s development.
With pleasure we would have discovered also still the probably beautiful district Lehe, but after 2 hours by increasing rain we are so soaked that a further makes no sense.
Wolfgang – Thanks to your beautiful tour, we will certainly come back once to make up for it.

PS: Absolutely worth seeing in Bremerhaven are the Klimahaus, the Emigration House and the small zoo.
