The tour was really very interesting and you just get more background knowledge about the Reeperbahn. Our guide Fredo was very motivated and had a lot of information to offer. Even a loft on the Reeperbahn with all kinds of interesting objects was part of it. The only downside is that the farewell was so different from what they were used to. Because after a final stop on the big freedom and a tour by the tour guide, the tour was suddenly over. The tour guide suddenly disappeared into the crowd!

It was a great guide and a great group. We saw and experienced a lot. It was a shame that in our Hamburg time Olivia Jones was still on vacation. I would have loved to have seen her live. So ... watch the date. After the Reeperbahn round we went with the guide and about half of the group for a beer, which is of course not a must, but was very nice. I / we can only recommend such a guided tour.

It was a nice way to explore the port of Hamburg with free time management. Only the puzzles we would have liked a little more difficult!

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

Great day thank you very much. Exellent guide and driver!!!!
