We met at the subway station with about 20 people and were a nice bunch of very different ages and professions. We walked along the street and our Giude explained a lot about the Reeperbahn, how it came about and a lot of other information in an interesting and at the same time funny round. A visit to the crack was almost the end and we visited the legendary boxing cellar.

We had a great tour with our guide Martin. He was very funny and told us many interesting facts about Hamburg. The tour took a bit longer than 2 hours but it was great. I wish it was talked more about crime (like Jack the Ripper as mentioned in the tour description). Nevertheless it’s a very recommendable tour! We will try another one when we’re back in Hamburg.

We did this tour on a Wednesday evening. It was not too crowded on Reeperbahn which allowed us to carefully listen the stories & facts from our Guide Luca. Learned great facts & heard super interesting stories while visiting the various locations. Luca did a great job, we enjoyed big times.
