I would do it again.

It always started on time at the agreed meeting point. The group wasn't too big and the two guides (Ella and Maike) did a great job, they were well informed and could answer all questions! The visit to the Elbphilharmonie was almost a bit too expensive for me at € 19, but the Reeperbahntour was exciting and informative.

Great experience!

It was great ! The Elbphi Tour with Chris was really great! Chris is super nice and it was interesting and fun. In the evening we had the Kiez tour with Miriam! Just great! Miriam did the tour great and it was really fun! Keep it up !

Luca looked after us in the first part. Great knowledge about the Elphie and the surrounding area. In the second part, Stefan brought us closer to St. Pauli. A real Hamburger Jung - really great!!

Very interesting guided tours despite the Corona situation. Experienced guides provide a lot of background knowledge, take their time and answer the questions of the participants.

Was a great tour. Very nice guide. We'll do it again
