If I were to book this tour again, I would definitely do it again with the city guide Melanie. She was great. She knew an answer to all questions, was not at a loss for a saying, but above all thought about the right places and pointed out discretion, respect and sensitivity (on the Reeperbahn). All in all very successful!!! Getting up early is worth it!!!

A really great trip with lots of interesting information. Melanie guided us all through this tour with her witty, lively manner. Any time !!
