We were too punctual, so we almost joined the wrong tour. After a bit of waiting, the tour guides came and we were split up. Our guide Flo was a young guy with a very cheeky snout, which he told us directly. We found his rough manner but extremely entertaining and he was able to interact so well with all participants and also take counterattacks. So, we had a great tour, which unfortunately took place completely in the rain, but where he made the best of it. Unfortunately, due to the corona ordinance, there was no bar visit with a drink, but there was an extra schnapps if required. Conclusion: Great tour with a great guide, highly recommended if you want to experience the typical Kiez flair.

Excellent trip! We didn’t speak very good German and therefore were expecting a trip where we would only see and not hear so much, due to the lack of English-speaking guides at the moment. But fortunately for us there was a trainee on her 5. Tour, how were supposed to observe the other guide. She spoke very good English and gave us the perfect tour and explanation thrue the Reeperbahn. So thank you Patricia Best regards from The women from Denmark and Sweden

Very good tour, perfect and very talkative guide (Ulf) who never annoyed answered questions and had no time pressure, TOP! Due to the Corona regulations or for whatever reason, the controlled toilets were locked. Also in the Bu ... Ki ... There was water and a schnapps in between. As already written, Ulf had all the time in the world and so the tour was 40 minutes longer, but without boredom. Unreserved recommendation

Our tour with Ulf was great. Starting with the greeting to the schnapps at the end, a simple top tour. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to get to know the “right” Reeperbahn. We definitely recommend the tour.

The tour was super interesting and fun. We had Ulf as a guide. He was very personable with his open manner. I would always book a tour with him. He even exceeded an hour. Great guy.
