A very nice and informative tour, in a pleasant number of participants. Dennis knows all the corners, tips, tricks, much more that you should know about the Reeperbahn and where you should have been. Convinced right from the start with his open and humorous manner. Always a snappy saying up his sleeve. We were very satisfied and would definitely recommend it to everyone, also suitable for people who have been there before.

Our tour was entertaining and also informative and relaxed. Our guide Niklas was highly motivated and managed to take the group on the "Reeperbahn adventure" with his friendly manner. He also answered all questions and offered various topics. The stories weren't rewound, but staged in a richly illustrated way. Conclusion: If you are on the Reeperbhn, you should definitely book the tour.

Reeperbahn tour with Jenny was very interesting and entertaining. She is super knowledgeable and speaks very respectfully of the people who live/work there.

A great combination of light cycling and sightseeing! Many thanks to Lucca, our guide, who showed us great places in the city. Recommendation!

A great evening, guided tour and narration by Dennis. We loved it.
