“Went on two really great walking tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

I went on two walking tours: the Famous Insider Walk with David, and the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp tour with Jesse.

I don't want to give too much away, but the Famous tour takes you to locations from the Prussian Empire, the Nazis, the Communists, and the Jewish Holocaust Memorial.

The concentration camp tour takes you on a train ride just outside Berlin to a concentration camp, the first site the SS designed and built to hold prisoners to use as forced labor.

Both tours were a bit of a hike, so if you don't like walking this probably isn't the tour for you. But if you do like walking, both guides I had were super friendly and really knew their history. They also managed to keep the group together, which at times looked like it was harder than herding cats. So big props to the guides for that.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

We took the "Inside the wall-cold war" tour with a guide called Barnaby. The tour lasted about 4 hours. The guide took us to the interesting and less visited places relating to the east-west cold war era. His phenomenal knowledge and ability to explain the history, culture and socioeconomic forces as well as a great (British) sense of humor helped us understand better the impossible and crazy world we lived in not so far ago.

Thank you very much for a lovely time

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

Jamie was our guide and the 4 hour tour felt like it went by in 1 hour. They hit every major tourist spot in Berlin and are super knowledgeable with both facts and stories. An amazing value at 12 euro for 4 hrs. Its truly worthwhile and they have a meeting spot in both the east and the west.

“Excellent and expert guidance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

Took a three hour private guided tour of the Pergamon museum and the New museum. Tarek guided us expertly, bringing background knowledge and understanding. Completely changed our experience of the museum island. Highly recommended.

Also took the Berlin tour with Barnaby as part of a group which was also very interesting and contributed immensely to our understanding of a complex city.

“a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Berlin is easy to love but hard to get, you really need an insider to understand it.
Tarek, who showed us around on bikes(recommended), gave us personal insight to his favourite spots, SECRET hideaways.
