“Third Reich - well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The Third Reich tour was great - how guide Rob was very knowledgeable and kindly took us out despite not having the min numbers required so we were very grateful!

We went to lots of really interesting sites, and Rob pointed out small memorials and details that we would have otherwise completely missed. It really opened our eyes to how the Nazis came to power, how WW2 unfolded, and the effects on the German people and the city of Berlin.

If you dont have much knowledge of WW2 and the Third Reich, I would recommend doing some reading beforehand to get some context, so you dont get too lost.

“Great way to see Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

All the other positive reviews are absolutely spot on.

We did the tour on a very cold day, but it was worth every minute. Our guide Kate, really brought life to the history - making it easy to digest as we went. She also made a real effort to remember the names of everyone in the group (and succeeded!).

The pace is leisurely, and Kate took great care to make sure that those at the back of the group were not left behind, and did not miss any of the fascinating history. The lunch stop in the park was also very well received, and gives everyone the chance to get to know others on the tour.

If you only do one tour when in Berlin, do this one. It gives a real insight into the history of an amazing city, all in the space of a few hours. Just make sure you wrap up warm!

“Fab and Fun Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I went on two tours - The All in One City Tour and the Third Reich Tour. Both were really interesting and fun, but very different.

The City tour was a great thing to do on my first day in Berlin. I got to see a lot of the city and get a better understanding of where everything was, while having a wonderful time and learning fun facts. My tour guide Kate was fun, engaging and knowledgeable.

Kate was also my guide for the Third Reich Tour, she was very knowledgeable on the subject. I really enjoyed this tour, I learned a lot and thought that Kate did a great job of keeping the group engaged, relating the history of the sites and their significance, giving the subject matter the respect it deserved.

“Bikes in Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

A great day out, Ciaran was a fantastic guide, we had seen similar sites the day before on a walking tour, but Ciaran put a different perspective on the history of Berlin, giving a really informed description, we really enjoyed the tour and feel that we have a rounded knowledge of the city, with good tips on what to see/do on the rest of our trip. Great advice where to eat, Transit was an excellent choice for our evening meal, good advice too on German beers. probably the highlight of an excellent short break, Thank You, Gary and Steve from Aberdeen

“Fun Way To Learn About Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The tour is a must-do for anyone wanting to see and learn about Berlin itself. Our guide Neil, was fun and knowledgable about the history of Berlin and one thing that shone through was his enthusiasm and humour. The bikes are brilliant and it doesn't take much exertion to get around and the cafe/restaurant in Tiergarten was a lovely little stop off at very reasonable prices. Neil also went out his way at the end of the tour to mark our map with some other points of interest, bars and restaurants to try. My brother and a work colleague are off to Berlin shortly and I've already recommended they do the Fat Tire Tour.
