We were too punctual, so we almost joined the wrong tour. After a bit of waiting, the tour guides came and we were split up. Our guide Flo was a young guy with a very cheeky snout, which he told us directly. We found his rough manner but extremely entertaining and he was able to interact so well with all participants and also take counterattacks. So, we had a great tour, which unfortunately took place completely in the rain, but where he made the best of it. Unfortunately, due to the corona ordinance, there was no bar visit with a drink, but there was an extra schnapps if required. Conclusion: Great tour with a great guide, highly recommended if you want to experience the typical Kiez flair.

Matze made the tour very interesting, a lot of background knowledge about the history of the Reeperbahn and the individual locations ... Starclub, Ritze, Schmidts Theater, Davidwache etc. he showed us the connections between today's problems on the Reeperbahn and their possible solution strategies. Matze is an entertainer who flew by almost 2.5 hours in the sometimes heavier rain, because he conveyed everything to us in an exciting and entertaining way. It was not my last Reeperbahntour with Matze, who is a very warm and sincere Hamburg boy is ... we'd love to come back .....

Very good tour, perfect and very talkative guide (Ulf) who never annoyed answered questions and had no time pressure, TOP! Due to the Corona regulations or for whatever reason, the controlled toilets were locked. Also in the Bu ... Ki ... There was water and a schnapps in between. As already written, Ulf had all the time in the world and so the tour was 40 minutes longer, but without boredom. Unreserved recommendation

I got off at the wrong stop and was quite stranded. I called the office for help, and they were super helpful going as far as making the rest of the group wait a few minutes for me. The tour guide also knew his stuff and had a good sense of humour. It was a memorable and fun experience for all of us!

Our tour with Ulf was great. Starting with the greeting to the schnapps at the end, a simple top tour. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to get to know the “right” Reeperbahn. We definitely recommend the tour.
