“Introduction to Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The first thing I did in Berlin with my teenage daughter was to do a walking tour with Simon Hughes. My daughter knew most of the history (much more than me) - but he put everything into context intelligently and with good humour - and had a wholesome perspective that didn't just focus on Germany's less glorious past - but looked further back to more enlightened days, and to where we are now. A thoroughly worth while and enjoyable few hours. There is more standing and listening than walking, so wrap up extra warmly - Berlin is freezing after London! Next time I'll so the alternative tour - but this is the best one to start with. Thank you Simon!

“Sachenhausen concentration camp tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Went on this tour yesterday with Rob. I thought the tour was great. I felt there were a lot of people, so it may not have been as I guess intimate as the tour we had in Paris, but good nonetheless. Rob was extremely knowledgable and was able to answer all our questions. I didn't give five stars because I wish the group could have been smaller. I think our group had 35 people in it. Other than that it was fantastic.

Dear Darrick,

I am pleased you enjoyed the free tour with Rob. Normally our tours are limited to 30 people maximum. Apparently this day it did not worked out. I am sorry for that.

I hope to see you again on one of our tours.

“Berlin Free Tour (Sandemans New Europe)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This 3 1/2 hour walking tour of Berlin is a terrific introduction to this fascinating city. Despite the cold we were completely absorbed in hearing all about Berlin's history from 18th century to the present day, and seeing a score of remarkable sights and buildings. Our guide Simon was enthusiastic, charismatic and enormously knowledgeable - in fact quite a cut above guides we've met elsewhere. Can't recommend this highly enough.

“berlin free tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

we came with low expectation but the guide, rob (from norfolk), his knowledge, the way he led the group and of course the city made the time to fly and left a big crave for more.

keep on the good job
