This tour is definitely worth it! As a solo traveler I was a bit nervous as to what exactly to expect. Barbie and Lee led the group through their quarters with a lot of elegance, charm and wit. You can feel the love and passion for her job. We laughed a lot, but it wasn't embarrassing or vulgar for a moment. The accompanying bodyguard conveyed a feeling of security in a pleasant way.

The guide was great, cheerful and he was a good singer, He obviously was a fan of the Beatles and really tried to help everyone to enjoy the experience I think his name was Henning .

The guide was very informative. Our guide was super easy to deal with. He made the tour great and explained everything in detail. Highly recommended.

We had a lot of fun. Thank you for the wonderful experience and the background knowledge in St. Pauli. We'd love to come back
