We had the pleasure of stumbling upon a leaflet at the bottom of a stand loaded with information about tours here and there in Berlin but nothing really seemed to show us more than what we had already read in the tour guides...
Our guide, the much applauded V, was fantastic. V's interest sparked an interest in the group and set the pace for the rest of our trip in Berlin. Rather than walk past a graffiti laden wall, we stopped and looked closer and recognised different artists, techniques and began to understand the meaning behind the mark on the wall, the paint, the texture, the message. After showing us around the the little side streets of Mitte, the Turkish areas of Berlin and the Yaam area by the East Side Gallery V gave us great ideas of where to revisit and see more. We went back to the Yaam area and had a great evening, despite the snow and it being quite quiet we definitely saw the potential and vibrancy of the place that, as we were told, faces its possible closure soon.
A great tour, great guide, great city!

Thankyou for this cracking review. V is one of our most interesting and friendly guides we have. As an artist and successful musician she knows her stuff and her way around the city. Thankyou for joining our tour and we hope you can visit us again sometime soon.
