Kiel, Germany - This tour allows you to see Hamburg's Top 10 sites during a driving tour of the city with short stops for photos. An interior visit to St. Michaels Church and free time for lunch are also included. This is an excellent option for those who prefer limited walking.

Hamburg is the second largest metropolis in Germany and one of the biggest ports in Europe. Elegant and cosmopolitan, Hamburg is now a city of palatial office buildings, magnificent promenades and extravagant shopping malls, plus the famous Reeperbahn in St. Pauli. The magical aura of far-away places is still alive in the Warehouse Quarter with its little canals. Hamburg is also the greenest city in Germany with its many spacious lawns and parks.

After meeting your guide you will embark on a panoramic tour which gives you the opportunity to see the highlights of this bustling city such as the City Hall (1), the oldest Stock Exchange in Germany (2), the Speicherstadt (3), (the century old warehouse quarter which was built in Gothic redbrick architecture and houses fine spices, coffee and tea from all over the world), as well as the Jungfernstieg (4), one of the elegant and luxury shopping areas. Your tour will also take you around the Aussen-Alster (5), which is one of the top addresses in Hamburg and includes elegant private residences, numerous consulates and renowned businesses.

You will drive past the St. Pauli Landungsbruecken (6), where the old sailing vessels used to dock and then continue your journey along the world famous Reeperbahn (7), where at the beginning of the 17th century the Reepers made rigs. Nowadays this street together with the Grosse Freiheit and Herbert Strasse are referred to as the mile of sin and are a well know attraction worldwide as The Beatles began their career here in 1962.

Your tour will also include a visit to the St. Michaels Church (8), which was destroyed a number of times in the past, but then always reconstructed. Also known as the Michel by the locals, this church is the largest North German Baroque church and is Hamburgs main landmark. Continue walking across to the Kramer Amts Stuben (9), which was an earlier form of widow housing and take a leisurely stroll through this small district.

Your tour will continue to the Elbvororte (10) suburbs of the river Elbe, Hamburgs most up-market and luxurious residential areas, where former captains, pilots and other seaman reside. If time allows you will be taken for a short walk through one of these picturesque residential areas with its many pretty, old villas, half-timbered houses and typical German One-Family-Homes.

During the tour a stop is provided for you to enjoy lunch (meal not included).

Finally, you will be taken back to the pier.
