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.

Cool tour, very good guide, got a lot of impressions, what more could you want?

I really recommend this tour! We had a ton of fun on it. At the meeting point it became clear that the two of us were the only ones coming that day, so we basically got a private tour from the guide. After a short while it become clear that this must be our lucky day, since our nice guide Uwe gushed out so much detailed information about the neighborhood in general, about the individual businesses there, about the local watering holes, and about the distinguished residents and their works. It was amazing how much he showed and told us. Alongside anecdotes about the history of the neighborhood he also covered current events. And when you experience the level of enthusiasm he uses to describe how freely a live sex theater and, only 100 meters away, a Catholic church and a nunnery exist in close proximity to one another, then you can (almost) believe him that this can only happen in Hamburg.
