    We have on October 2nd. Took the ghost tour and loved it. That was primarily due to our guide Birgit, who brought the history of Hamburg 1A across with her interesting manner. Would book a tour with her again at any time. The stories of the city were told just as well as the little scary stories in between. She also explained many symbols on buildings in the Speicherstadt and was always available for questions. Thanks to the Stadtspürer for giving us an unforgettable evening. We'll definitely be happy to try out the other tours in the cities.

    We were led by the city tracker Birgit and were a group of 8 people. At various stations around the Katharinenkirche and in the Speicherstadt, matching scary stories were told, and so vividly that you could immerse yourself in the dark past for two hours. We have had two very entertaining and exciting hours and can only recommend the tour. Many thanks to the great narrator Birgit! The organization in advance is also great, you will receive a confirmation email stating exactly where the meeting point is and how you can recognize the guide.

    We had the lead at Gordon Schmitz. Stories and myths from Hamburg are told here with lots of information about the city itself. I would say that he lives this story and that he kept us entertained with words and jokes. The tour lasted 2 hours and was worth every euro. My mother and I had an unexpected highlight :) The Mythen Tour with Gordon Schmitz is on my to-do list!
