A nice tour through the Speicherstadt and a bit around it with interesting information, scary and exciting stories and great views. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, funny and friendly, answered questions, sometimes included a joke, showed and explained a lot and always paid attention to the whole group. It wasn't too long a tour, but it still contained a lot of things worth knowing and seeing.

Absolutely worth it. Not only breathtaking scenery - Speicherstadt at night - but also very likeable ghost guides. Some of the stories were hair-raising and a little bit disgusting, some fates from the Middle Ages made you excited, but you would always be entertained. Successful alternation between informative and excitingly entertaining. To be recommended again at any time.

Really a Great experience if you want to have some awesome professional pictures & you want to learn about photography and while having a lot of fun posing! the tour guide is a very nice guy with a lot of knowledge

Absolutely unforgettable! Easily one of the best tours I have been on! Especially loved learning about Lady Katarina!

Sehr toll mit spannenden Geschichten. Empfehle ich weiter!
