What people are saying about Hamburg

Brilliant tour with the highlight DRAGQueen Veuve Noire. We really enjoyed it and it was very interesting and very funny. The insights into life in the neighborhood as a DRAGQueen were explained to us in a great way and not a dry eye stayed. The history of the Reeperbahn and all the trimmings was also explained very well. It was absolutely fun

An amazing treasure hunt! I’ve played a few others and especially the ones lead by mobile phones were always very underwhelming. This was different because you used physical materials and everything felt well thought throug. Would definitely recommend!

A very fun and interesting tour. It's nice to experience humanity, joy and fun. Thanks for that! We will be there again.

Very good tour with Fabian Zart. I can only recommend it. A great Tyb.and simply cool

Great anecdotes by Ulf about Reeperbahn and the districts history
