We were able to enjoy a consistently interesting tour, which was led by a very competent person and clearly exceeded our expectations. The information was factually informative, pleasantly proportioned, cautiously critical and peppered with a sympathetic joke. Our group of 8 fell in love with our guide. His advice regarding our further stay in Hamburg was welcome and useful.

We were a group of four and just loved the tour. A great guide with an incredible amount of knowledge, which he imparted in an entertaining manner. Even the rather bad weather that day wasn't that bad. We would repeat the tour again at any time!

I've done a lot of dungeon and Ghost tours and this one has been the best so far. Great acting and effects make some moments truly frightening. Highly recommended.

Unser Guide (Karin) war sehr engagiert und hat uns toll geführt. Viele Hintergrundinfos und interessante Geschichten gehört. Sehr kurzweilige Führung.

Sehr interessant und der Führer hat viele Informationen gegeben.
