Today was our first day in Berlin! We decide to take the "free" walking tour of Berlin starting at 11 am in English. Sam from England was our guide. He was by far the best tour guide I have ever had. Funny, witty, informative and knowledgeable. You could ask him anything and everything and he had an answer ready. This... More

Dave Jefferson was our wonderful guide and he gave us 200%. The walking was easy, talks not too long winded, but always made us believe we were hearing a gem that other mere tourists wouldn't know about! At the end, we could give Dave our emails if we wanted more info on reading, or films about Berlin. To my amazement,... More

The tour guide is really nice and professional. The tour was great and heard lots of stories. I like this kind of tour guiding. Hope it can be expanded and appreciated.

As a tour guide myself, I can recognize the work of a great guide! Antonia was knowledgeable, answered every question and handled with perfection a big group of 25 people, walking for 2,5 hours. Thank you, Antonia, for sharing your knowledge with us!! I had great fun!!

We arrived in Berlin on 25 August and after dropping our stuff off in the hotel we grabbed a quick bite to eat and set off to Brandenberg Gate to do the free 2.5 hour walking tour. If you head for Starbucks you won't go wrong. Our guide for the day was Franziska. First class all the way, really exceptional... More

I attended the Sachsenhausen concentration camp with Rob Shaw and it was a brilliant tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable about German history and made the tour extremely interesting, but at the same time it had a massive impact on us. I can't recommend these tours enough, they were great for my friends and I while travelling around Europe.

Me and my boyfriend went on a free walking tour of Berlin as we were looking for tours online and this one had all the main attractions included! Lyndsay was our guide and she was amazing! She took us to so many beautiful and historical spots through Berlin and told us things that we would have never been able to... More

Although the weather on the day was pretty awful, our tour guide ?Franzicsa? Was utterly brilliant. She had an intimate knowledge of Berlin and it's history, was very engaging and had an obvious love for the place. The tour had many stops and was very easy to get around. Would recommend this tour for all ages.

We did the free walking tour on our first day in Berlin which was a great introduction to the city and provided us with a good history. The next day we decided to pay for the Red Berlin tour (12 euro pp) which was well worth the money. I am not the biggest history fan but I found this fascinating.... More
