Great tour with lots of exciting information about the St. Pauli district and the breweries. There were plenty of different beer samples, unfortunately only light and Pale Ale. Henning is an excellent guide with lots of stories including his own. In any case, the tour is highly recommended. Since the locations change on the tour, we will be there again on our next visit to Hamburg.

It was a great evening and a lot of fun. Sam made the tour very interesting and fun. We went to 3 locations where we were allowed to taste a total of 7 beers. We moved from the Sternschanze to St. Pauli, where the tour ended after about 2.5 hours. We were thrilled and will definitely be there again sometime!

It was tailored just for us. We spread the tour over 2 days. Very good idea. You get to parts of Hamburg where you wouldn't have come otherwise. The opening hours are not always correct (UrQuelle), they are from last season.

A very interesting tour with a good description of the route. Unfortunately, one station had a winter break (brewery), so we couldn't redeem the voucher there.

Great tour, beautiful locations, friendly guide, delicious beer - what more could mam want?
