We had a tour of the neighborhood with Dennis Schmidt. He is a top guide with great stories from his longstanding bouncer activity and past. He tried to get everything as close as humanly possible to us despite COVID-19 restrictions. Unfortunately, it was not possible to enter the SM Studio, because access is not possible due to COVID-19. Unfortunately, there is currently not much going on on the Reeperbahn, as prostitution is also not allowed due to COVID-19. Many restaurants are still closed and are struggling to survive.

The Kiez tour with Dennis Schmidt is definitely worth it. Despite wind and rain, Dennis took a lot of time for us and told us things that only an insider of his own kind can tell. We learned a lot about the Reeperbahn and the red light district and were very enthusiastic about the tour. We laughed a lot and were able to take away a lot of new impressions. I can recommend the tour to anyone who wants to learn something about St.Pauli far away from the normal tourist tours.

We had a very fun and enjoyable tour with Barbie and Lee! The two are super nice and extremely funny. If you want to take some insider knowledge with you and not just factual salad, you are in the right place with both! We really enjoyed it and there was tasty Astra in between and a short one at the end! We can only recommend the neighborhood tour!

We were a little skeptical at the beginning because we couldn't imagine so much. Veuve broke the ice straight away with her direct and funny manner. It became very personal when she told us about private experiences that really got under our skin. Insanity. Would book it again anytime!

It was very informative and as Hamburgers we also learned a lot of news.
