Hamburg Walking Tours

Impressive Hamburg Tours runs personal, informative, and entertaining walking tours in Hamburg and around.  Since 2014, I’ve been introducing countless guests to the beauty and uniqueness of Hamburg; its history and mentality, thanks to which this city stands apart from the rest of Germany. Discover Hamburg on a sightseeing tour or let me know how to customise your Hamburg tour to your interests, whether that’s an exploration of your family’s history or specific parts of Hamburg you wish you to experience.


Your Guide

My name is Ian Shulman, and I am a private tour guide in Hamburg. In 2012, I desperately fell in love with this city, packed my bags and moved. Soon enough I realized that I can’t think of a better job than sharing this love with Hamburg’s visitors; and explaining what makes it such a special place. By now, I’ve been running personal, tailor-made, as well as group tours in Hamburg and its surroundings for years and never regretted my decision.

Wonderful Tour Guide

Ian is a completely engaging and interesting guide. We visited Hamburg in May 2018 to see and learn about where my father’s family had lived. I had e-mailed Ian a list of addresses of interest that included former family residences and the stolpersteine that commemorate some of the family members that were lost. When he picked us up at our hotel, he had already mapped out a route that included key Jewish historical sites as well as all of the addresses that I requested.

Fabulous walking tour!

Strap on your walking shoes because Ian is going to show you Hamburg. He is a great tour guide and storyteller. He makes things flow seamlessly. Ian has been leading tours in Hamburg for four years. Like most of the city's population, he wasn't born and raised here but moved here by choice. He is fluent in several languages including English and Ukrainian. Ian has a wonderful sense of humor and truly loves his subject. You simply can't go wrong with Ian Shulman!

History and Hamburg

Like others, I came to find out about Hamburg as well as my family's roots (and demise). I learned so much from Ian, both about how Hamburg treated the Jews during WWII as well as how Hamburg is today. The 4-hour private tour with my husband and daughter was really informative and I would recommend strongly recommend Ian's tour to anyone interested in this city. He's personable and knowledgeable and very willing to accommodate his clients--even those on a crazy quest for odd items before a cruise.

This is the only way to see Hamburg

Fantastic private tour of Hamburg! I visited last summer with my wife and daughter, and we decided to book Ian as our private tour guide. Such a great decision! He did an outstanding job at showing us around the beautiful city of Hamburg. With a great sense of humor he lead us through some of the best local spots to visit, not just the “touristy” places (which some bigger tour companies leave out of their itineraries).

Fantastic Time in Hamburg!

This past summer my friends and I took a tour of Hamburg, and Ian met with us on relatively short notice. Despite the short time to prepare on his part, Ian still provided us with an awesome experience. We had walked some of Hamburg's streets in the days prior, but Ian pointed out a lot of details we overlooked, and gave us some profound insight into the history of the city. He was also very eager to answer questions, so throughout the tour it never felt as if we were just listening to someone lecture us.

Could not be better!

Ian Shulman has both the sensitivity and knowledge to provide an amazing tour to meet your needs and interests. He is a charming young man with a great sense of what interests you, as well as what you would not find of interest. Ian met me at my hotel and showed me in our walk what was once an impressive Jewish community and not just how it was destroyed, but what it provided to Germany and the world. Ian has an incredible knowledge base, but rather than knock you over with facts, he tells the history like the storyteller that he is. What a wonderful experience!

Brilliant half day tour.

Ian is very knowledgeable and very courteous. He is a great storyteller and gave us a wonderful insight into Hamburg. The walking tour was a real eye opener. We learnt a lot and also made friends with this charming gentleman. Don't hesitate to book any of his tours.
