“The history of Germany and Berlin in a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The tour was incredible. We visited every key attraction in Berlin whilst finding out all about its historical and cultural heritage. Our tour guide Rick was enthusiastic, informative and interesting throughout. It took around 4 hours but there were breaks to sit and rest and so it is suitable for all ages. The history was told in such a fascinating way that even the teenagers amongst the group were interested! You get to know your group really well and there's a great atmosphere. A camera and drinks are necessary. 10/10.

“A very informative Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We were in Berlin for a four day trip (30/9/2012-5/10/2012). On Thursday 4th October we traveled out to Sachsenhausen concentration camp where we encountered a most wonderful guide, Ryan, originally from Scotland. He has majored in History and it shows in his delivery .Despite the awfulness of the camp he enthralled us with background information, and we left with a thorough understanding of what went on there in the thirties to the end of the war. We are very grateful to Ryan for his efforts and really endorse him!

“Carlos rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We went for a 4-hour walk through Berlin and its history. Carlos has a very great knowledge and a really good accent, so it was a pleasure to know all the places.

“What a great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Just did this tour with my Contiki group and it was a definite highlight of my trip! Rick (I think that was his name... An American who did his Masters in Berlin on International Relations, dark hair!!) was absolutely amazing. He knew his stuff inside out and backwards, and delivered the information is a fun and creative way. Loved every minute if this tour...so thank you!

“"Discover Berlin Walk" A must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The Tour was amazing. The guide was very well informed and interested in what he's doing. He was an American ( Alex La Rocca ) so we understood everything he said easily which was not the case with other tours in Berlin where the guides had very strong accents and spoke modest English. I strongly recommend this tour for everyone visiting Berlin. You won't regret it, believe me. Just hope your guide would be La Rocca.
