Solo Traveller. Hands down, best part of my trip. Definitely worth it.
Sep 2021 • Solo
Fantastic tour. Got to see plenty of landmarks that covered many aspects of Berlin's history. Our guide Tobi was brilliant and he really brought the tour to life - his interest and enthusiasm really shone through. He was funny or sombre depending on what was most appropriate and his passion was clear to see. He really can really engage the group. The tour was approx 4 hours but honestly would have been delighted if it continued on longer. Tobi was happy to answer any questions too and share some of his own experiences of growing up and living in Germany.

Fabulous Walking Tour - Highly Recommended
Heidi was a fabulous, kind, patient guide who shared so much history and detail, we loved it!
My only regret is that we didn’t do this the first day of our holiday as it’s opened our eyes to so many amazing places to visit further.
We would highly recommend and are considering another tour for later in our week. Thank you very much, Heidi!

Excellent tour. Great overview of Berlin
We really enjoyed this tour. The group was relatively small about 12 so it was very manageable. Many highlights including Museum Island, Brandenburg Gate, Bebelplatz and Checkpoint Charlie to name just a few. Sebastian was a very good guide. We really enjoyed the day with him.

Highly recommend! Xavier is a brilliant guide ⭐️
This was such a fantastic way to see and learn about Berlin.
Xavier was a knowledgeable and charismatic guide who managed to fit centuries of history into a half day tour without making the tour seem rushed or cramped with too much info.
I am so glad we got a space on this tour and couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
