Paid for the tour and waited for two hours but tour guide did not turn up! Will claim a refund as we paid for a service that we did not receive. Seems like scam or a tourist rip-off


The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She was also patient with my attempts to speak and understand German and switched to English when necessary. The stories she told about the district and its history were fascinating and made it come to life for me. I learned so much that I did not know - particularly about the Beatles!

<p>The tour voucher said to meet outside the Hard Rock Cafe. We ultimately found the tour guide, but no one at the Hard Rock Cafe or general vicinity knew anything about the tour or where exactly to meet. While our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the exceedingly seedy red light district, the tour was given entirely in German. The guide explained to us that we had to make a special request in advance to have an English-speaking guide if we wanted to take the English-language tour, which is something that has never come up on any tour I've booked through viator before or since. He was kind enough to give us a couple of sentences in English after speaking German paragraphs to the rest of the tour group, but it would have been nice to have known we had to specify this request in advance.</p>

<p>This tour is in German. Did not go on it once the Guide informed us that it would be conducted in German.</p>


<p>PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR. We only had one day in Hamburg and it was due to be the highlight of our trip. We met at the location indicated on the voucher, even arriving a few minutes early to make sure we were in the correct location. However, the guide NEVER showed up! After waiting around for almost 30 minutes we asked the doorman at the entrance of the Hard Rock Cafe if we were in the right location for this tour and he confirmed that we were, but advised us that there has been instances where the tour guide does not show up, which pretty much confirmed that we were definitely stood up. Needless to say, our night was ruined. I have been using Viator for years and have always had a fantastic experience, but I will be thinking twice before booking another tour with them.</p>


<p>VFM. The guide, although was little slow in english, he patiently answered all questions and explained things beautifully. Only bad thing is, the viator mentioned to meet the guide before 'Hard rock cafe', which was wrong and misleading. I almost missed the tour because of that.</p>


muy interesante este tour, Isabel fue la guia, es muy amena y ademas de explicar todo está dispuesta a resolver cualquier duda, lo recomiendo!


Leider hatte der Stadtführer mehr Interesse für die Vornamen der Teilnehmer (die er sich aufschrieb und ständig ohne jeglichen Bezug persönlich ansprach) und woher sie kamen und welchen Fußballverein Sie mögen, als für die interessanten Kleinigkeiten rund um den Kiez. Da wo es interessant war, hielt er sich kurz und ohne jegliche Anekdote und nur wenig echte Kiezgeschichten. Stattdessen erwähnte er immer und immer wieder Hell’s Angels und bulgarische oder rumänische Oligarche und blieb leider völlig unterkühlt und humorlos. Es wurde eine im Randbereich liegende Gastronomie besucht, ganz im Hinterbereich mit sehr wenig Publikum, der Schnaps war wohl eher Multivitaminsaft. Auf die Nachfrage von zwei Teilnehmerinnen, ob man denn nirgendwo in die wirklich bekannten Szenelokale mal kurz hinein gehen würde oder sie wenigstens kurz besichtigt, war er angegriffen und sagte, dann hätten Sie eine andere Tour buchen müssen. Ich hatte das Gefühl, dass er sich versteckt und sehr unauffällig halten wollte (musste??). Dadurch kam dann aber auch leider keinerlei Funke rüber. Bei einem kurzen Getränk im Safari war er innerhalb von 1 Minute einfach verschwunden und wir wurden dort stehen gelassen.


Toller guide hat uns alles erklärt , war sehr interessant... Immer wieder gerne , wenn wir in HH wieder sind...


Beim start zeigte sich dass unser Guide nicht erschienen ist so wurden zwei Gruppen zusammengelegt etwas über 40 Personen ein äusserst unglücklicher Start. Der Guide gab sich grösste Mühe die riesige Gruppe zu führen. Sein Outfit sowie seine Ausführungen (Sprach äh, äh äh) haben noch einige Luft nach oben ( Auftrittskompetenz). Inhaltlich Fachwissen sicher Ok. Haben schon die "Nachtwächter" gesehen ist eine andere Liga. Über alles gesehen mit den schwierigen Rahmen bedingungen soweit OK. jedoch auch nicht mehr.
