I was a bit meh about going on a company arranged tour about the Last nights of the battle of berlin on my business trip, but this was just such fun. The guide was really entertaining and she really knew her stuff. The war doesn't really interest me much, but I found myself looking at Berlin in a new way.... More

Lauren is so knowledgeable when it comes to tours. Her knowledge of the area and multiple periods is astounding and a must-have when it comes to taking a tour with her! I've been on other tours with other companies and have often run across historical inaccuracies with their guides who will defend their wrong information, but not Lauren! She really... More

We give Blackbird Tours an excellent rating for an excellent tour. Lauren tailored a tour for our family of five including three teenagers ages 16,14, and 13. We requested a mix of Berlin, WWII, and DDR history and Lauren delivered. Lauren also included a few ghost stories which had us enthralled. My daughter is anxious to go back to Berlin... More

Did a three hour tour with this company. Picked up in the hotel lobby, shown amazing buildings and learned a lot about the third reich. The guide was full of stories and my husband was blown away by the depth of knowledge. Worth the price of the private tour!!

Who knew about Berlin's spooky old history? The Guide was very entertaining and gave us all a good laugh while sharing the strange legends of this old city. This tour is a real tonic if you want something different to the normal Nazi and Cold war stuff that is offer all over the city.

I went on this tour because of the groupon deals, but I now seriously regret that. Like so many others I find the history about the Third Reich incredibly interesting, and also very important to remember. So that we don't repeat the same mistakes again. Blackbird offer an extra long and detailed tour about the Nazi time. Our guide Lauren... More
