Super Tour mit Ulf Die Tour war echt spitze! Trotz der Corona-Situation wurde das Beste aus der Tour gemacht und alle Teilnehmer waren sehr zufrieden! Ulf hat alles sehr anschaulich, ausführlich und lustig erklärt. Er hat sich ausreichend Zeit genommen um auf alle Fragen einzugehen. Wir haben viel über die Reeperbahn und das Nachtleben in Hamburg erfahren. Ich würde sie jederzeit weiterempfehlen!
