Nothing new from Udo's life for Udo fans, but everything is arranged in an amusing and entertaining way. Creating your own eggnog pictures is extremely funny and the group singing with the virtual Udo is really fun. You can then download both for free. Recommended if you ignore all commercialism, the 90% ban on photography and the quality of the eggnog...

Tour had been pushed back by an hour, but were informed in good time, so it was OK. Especially the guide, a real Hamburg original, was very good and had many interesting details. Unfortunately, the bar where we were supposed to take a "break" was full, so we moved on. That was a pity.

We had the city tour with Ulf - cool guy and great humor! The tour was very interesting and entertaining. The two hours flew by. Thanks to a few "insider tips" we looked at things that we didn't even know. The price is reasonable and the tour was definitely worth it.

You can count yourself very lucky with Matze as your tour guide. From informative St. Pauli history to humorous stories from his life. We visited a lot of beautiful and worth seeing spots of the Reeperbahn and were amazed how quickly the 3-hour tour was over. Any time!

We had a great Reeperbahn and St.Pauli tour! Matze told very honestly and authentically about the history, life and work on the Kitz! It was exciting to listen to him and to gain a little insight! The tour is very worthwhile!
