A great, unusual tour that leads through unusual corners in Hamburg's Katharinen-/ Nikolaiviertel. If you bring your own imagination with you, you will experience a really scary 2 hours, if you expect dungeon-to-go, you better look for something else. This is about stories that make you shiver because of their true content, not because of any staged effects. Guide Kirsten was great, absolutely authentic and warm. A tour that can be recommended without reservation!!!

A nice tour through the Speicherstadt and a bit around it with interesting information, scary and exciting stories and great views. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, funny and friendly, answered questions, sometimes included a joke, showed and explained a lot and always paid attention to the whole group. It wasn't too long a tour, but it still contained a lot of things worth knowing and seeing.

Eine super Tour um die Stadt durch die Augen von Harry Potter Fans kennenzulernen. Durch viele interaktive Elemente lockert Svenja die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten auf und bringt Harry Potter Fan Augen zum strahlen.
