Our family (4 people) really enjoyed the guided tour with Melanie. According to the guide, the tour could only be adapted due to the corona. The information on the individual stages was very helpful and informative. The individual stations that we headed to from 5 a.m. were the Reeperbahn including the Kiez bakery, the old Elbe tunnel, landing bridges, a short port trip and, at the end, the fish market. The coffee and the Franzbrötchen at the beginning of the tour were worth their weight in gold.

The evening was great. Our guide Julia extended the official two-hour tour to almost four hours. It was never boring and the mixture of information, jokes and brisk sayings was great. For the older ones, it should be said that Julia completely dwarfs Dieter Thomas Heck and even manages it in two languages. Thank you for the successful evening. If I'm in Hamburg next time, I'll be happy to book again. Clearly 5 stars for Julia!

A very entertaining and educational tour of the Reeperbahn. Really loved how our guide Frankie managed to find a great balance of delivering the content of the tour with both humor and sensitivity. Absolutely recommend this tour!

Christoph was an absolutely funny guide who made the two and a half hours wonderfully humorous and informative! 100% recommendation !!!

Die Tour war sehr interessant und unser Guide war zu dem sehr unterhaltsam. Sehr zum empfehlen
