When we arrived, the "hangman" had long been there and was smoking with the other participants ... this took away some of the mystique. The acting talent of our executioner was outstanding, he was able to switch to a completely different role within seconds and credibly tell about the time. It's just a shame that the hangman's mask was only worn briefly in between and that he looked very "bourgeois" the rest of the time. Still, this tour is a very fun pastime if you're not expecting a costumed spectacle. I would recommend it!

It was very, very interesting, well played and performed. There were three of us and we also learned a lot of new things. We had a lot of fun and we will do more scary tours. We say thank you very much and continue by us for this great performance 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

The actors are totally absorbed in their roles, you can feel the passion with which the tours are carried out. We were lucky that there was a full moon, that had a very special charm. We can recommend this experience without reservation!

It was a nice tour with a great city guide. We heard a lot about the history of Frankfurt and also experienced a great acting performance. Simply great. I can only recommend it.

If the weather is nice, a scary tour through the old town of Frankfurt. The various pitches of the executioner's voice emptied one to be feared. The devil's eyes ...
