          Must go visit in Berlin
          Really interesting tour, its really important to revisit history even though its such tragic events like the ones that happened in concentration camps. Our Scottish guide was 10/10, he had really good knowledge about all the history of the site.

          Good tour with an Outstanding guide
          This was a good tour, with an outstanding guide. The tour is a good amount of walking, covering a good number of sites. My guide, Lucia, was outstanding. Very expressive of a good knowledge of history, mixed with a wonderful personality, and humor. The sights were interesting, thought, provoking, and gave a good overview of the city. One of the better tours I’ve ever been on.

          Fabulous tour!
          This was a fabulous tour! Our guide, Theo, was engaging and entertaining. His knowledge was amazing and he explained the complicated Berlin history so well. He made us laugh and also showed great empathy when talking about the more difficult subjects. I would recommend this introduction to Berlin and, if you can, ask for Theo!

          Brilliant tour. Our guide, Jorg, was friendly and informative. We did the tour on our first day and it gave us a lot of ideas for the rest of our visit. Loved Jorg's personal stories and humour! Thankyou

          Very interesting walking tour through parts of Berlin. Louis was an excellent and informative guide and was also very friendly. Our 16 year old grandson was engaged throughout the walk and Louis was happy to answer his many questions. Good value tour

          Great walking tour of Berlin
          Georgia took us on 4-hour tour of the popular tourist sights in Berlin earlier today. Her knowledge was extensive, her delivery informative, humorous and friendly all while managing to share the troubled history of the city in a balanced and nuanced way. One of the best tour guides we have ever experienced.

          Theo, our guide, was amazing. He was well informed and made 3 and a half hours walking tour so entertaining that we didn't even notice the time pass. We highly recommend him as your tour guide. The whole experience was most enjoyable.

          Very Good Tour and Guide
          Jenny, the guide, shared a lot of information (and insight) about Berlin, especially WW II and the eight years leading up to it. If you a history buff, or just want to take a walking tour and see some of Berlin, then I highly recommend this tour. Well worth the time and money.

        Seb B was our guide.

        This 3h tour was absolutely 5⭐.

        Our guide was a young man with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history or Germany and Berlin. He presented the info in an articulate and entertaining fashion. You need to rug up properly in winter, as there is a fair amount of stationary listening. Having said that, you're also walking quite a bit so it's nice n healthy. Keeps you positive in the cold, dark weather!

        You also get a half way break at Checkpoint Charlie for a coffee and sausage!

        Can't recommend it enough, if you get Seb B -very intelligent guide. Loved it. I'm embarassed I didn't have any cash to tip him! Hopefully this review compensates!!

        Tobi, our tour guide is amazing; a great story-teller, he brought the history of Berlin to life with anecdotes from his childhood that helped us understand the relevance of important facts and dates. He delivered all with great humour and fun, but at all times respectful. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend this tour - particularly with Tobi - to anybody visiting Berlin.

        The tour I chose started at noon on a Sunday and finished at 3.30 pm. Giles was our English tour guide who has lived in Berlin for over 30 years. He had so much knowledge and was happy to tell us all the stories he knew. He started with a chat with pictures of Berlin when it first started and how it developed into the city we see today. then we went to all the main sites from the Reichstag to Brandenberg Gates. It was a comfortable pace but Giles was so easy to listen to, very friendly, informative and happy to answer any questions we had. It was less than £20 but one of the best tours I have taken, I have tried the bus tours but sometimes it is just a recording or you cannot understand or hear the speaker. Definitely worth the time as it covered all the sites I wanted to see leaving time for shopping. you also stop in the middle for a 15-minute toilet/coffee break. Thanks, Giles for making it so great.

        My husband and I had Heidi as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic and we can not fault her in any way. The tour was extremely informative, exceedingly interesting and exceptionally well delivered. Heidi was such a warm, personable and likeable guide who felt like a friend and we would highly recommend this tour. We feel we know Berlin so much more now and it’s a great way to begin a stay in this historical city. Thank you so much Heidi.

        Delightful 4 hours with Boris. Circled the old part of Berlin with him sharing history and major land points. He was above and beyond the normal guide given his years in Berlin and understanding of what visitors need to orient to the city. Great guide and tour

        Our family has taken a lot of these types of tours and we all said that our guide Jake was the best one we have ever had. By far. At the end, we felt we had seen all the stuff we expected, but the depth of our knowledge was increased so much as he made everything come alive in a profound way. The facts were presented of course, but the stories told along with them made us laugh and think and reflect on history...it is rare to get such a great storyteller and cnnot sing praises for this special tour guide any louder.

        Our tour was absolutely fantastic, and led by the very knowledgeable, and sometimes funny, Walid. Walid provide great history and background to each location we visited, and it was fantastic to hear his stories. The tour itself took us through a very interesting route, taking in the history and sights of Berlin. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Berlin, and it is definitely great value for money.

        A fantastic tour, cannot recommend enough! Tours can sometimes be let down by an unenthusiastic, dry tour guide.

        Gregory, was far from this. Charismatic, funny and honest, we really appreciated his insights and it felt odd to be left by ourselves when the tour came to an end.

        On the tour, it was the perfect length and each stop was weighted proportionally. Our particular favourite was the Holocaust memorial, where Gregory gave us good insight from an Art-History perspective and his opinion as a native-Berliner.

        Want a tour round Berlin, this is the one? No debate.

        Went on private walking tour with Joel. Very relatable guide who talked about history interspersed with our personal experiences. He covered a wide area (Mitte) and was accommodating and adaptive to our needs. If you plan on a group or private tour, I highly recommend requesting him.
