Absolut empfehlenswert! Wir waren schon bei vielen verschiedenen Stadtführungen, aber diese war mit Abstand die BESTE! Unser Nachtwächter (der Michel) war sehr witzig und hat alles super rübergebracht. Es war ein Samstagabend und allein von den Nachtwächtern waren 3 Touren mit je gut 25 Personen unterwegs, zudem noch weitere Stadtführungen auf dem Kiez. Wir hatten dennoch an jeder Station genügend Zeit und Fragen wurden sehr gut beantwortet. Lautstärke und Verständlichkeit waren auch TOP! Während der Führung gibt es auch die Gelegenheit den Boxkeller in der "Ritze" zu besuchen, dieser kostet zusätzlich 3€ (dafür gibt es einen Schnaps). Es ist jedoch keine Pflicht mit rein zu gehen. Insgesamt hat die Führung etwas länger gedauert als angegeben, also alles ohne Zeitdruck, trotz der vielen anderen Touren um uns herum. Jederzeit wieder! Weiter so!

We absolutely loved the scavenger hunt. Everything was extremely well done, some things were quite tricky and required tinkering, but doable as long as you were attentive, so not too easy or even boring. Everything was great and prepared with love and the employee was so, so nice! We would do a MonkeyQuest activity again anytime! Absolutely to recommend!

We did this tour on a Wednesday evening. It was not too crowded on Reeperbahn which allowed us to carefully listen the stories & facts from our Guide Luca. Learned great facts & heard super interesting stories while visiting the various locations. Luca did a great job, we enjoyed big times.

We had a very experienced lady as our guide and she was able to tell us a lot about the crime scenes but also about Hamburg and St. Pauli itself from her extensive knowledge base. It was very informative and we could have continued for a few more hours.

Tolle Tour, :) informativ, interessant gestaltet. Gerne wieder
