Very exciting and not boring tour! The guide, unfortunately I forgot his name, was great. A real Harry Potter fan. When you break the tour down it's a small tour of the city, albeit in more of the places you wouldn't otherwise see. The common thread on the subject of Harry Potter is taken up at every stop and with a number of Harry Potter questions and search tasks, it won't be that boring for children either ;-) A clear recommendation for a slightly different tour for magicians young and young at heart :-)

Something different, but very great. The guide Julian was really great. Knowledge about the spots in Hamburg, historical and always in connection with Harry! And also with a little quiz in between. So I'm more than satisfied and more than excited. So if you just want to see a little something and don't always do the "usual" tours, this is simply recommended.

A great shooting on the Reeperbahn. Liviu gave us very good tips for a natural appearance in front of the camera and responded to us individually. Despite the rain we were able to do the shooting. If you are looking for a tourist tour of Hamburg, you should book another tour. It's a great experience for anyone who wants souvenir photos of their vacation.

A wonderful tour! Entertaining, exciting and interesting. With information that you haven't heard a thousand times before and a tour guide that you just had to love. So warm and passionate, always trying to involve everyone in the group. It could have been 2 hours longer - my daughter and I loved it! Highly Recommended!

Bela offered us a varied, informative tour for young and old through the magical parts of Hamburg, including time travel. This was fun for the kids like me as a dad. The tour as well as Bela as a guide are unreservedly recommended by us at any time!
