          The excellent guide
          Thomas is a brilliant guide & driver, knowing so much about what has taken place in the Berlin area. He has a lot of interesting things to tell about persons, places, events etc. and he knows where to stop for the best sights. 6 hours passed in a second.

          Very insightful 5 hours
          Had a wonderful time with Thomas who provided us great insights to the history of the city. He is extremely knowledgeable about the city and it helped us appreciate the sites a lot more. He was also flexible to plan this around the places we wanted to visit, without having a set agenda - that is a true example of a custom tour. Will be sure to repeat this in near future with our family!

          History of Berlin
          Guide Thomas was perfect for us . Great tour for “learning” history of Berlin as well as sights Probably not best for Young children but college age will get a real education

          Most Captivating Tour Guide Ever!
          Thomas was the most captivating, enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide we’ve ever had in Europe. He customized our tour to focus on the German history that my son was interested in—rather than generic book information. He really brought German history to life. It’s the first tour that my son was disappointed when it ended!

          Bad Saarow resort trip with A Friend in Berlin is highly recommended!
          Bad Saarow with A Friend in Berlin is a great choice for anyone wanting to relax in a picturesque place. My fiance and i loved our stay at Esplanade, one of the resort hotels. We chose to take a bike tour around the lake. It was a pleasant ride, mostly flat. We stopped at a cafe, a restaurant (the food was excellent), and a beach. Highly recommended!

          Loved my two Friend in Berlin tours
          I had another company set up two private tours in Berlin. They chose A Friend in Berlin and my guide was Josh. I'm a bit remiss in posting a review. I had the tours in mid-September and then got carried away by the rest of my trip. But I enjoyed the tours so much I wanted to make sure that I gave them a five-star rating. Josh was knowledgeable, interesting and interested in my questions and what I wanted to see. The first tour was a Highlights of Berlin scheduled for the day after my arrival. I really felt that I got an excellent baseline of the city, its history and its culture. The second tour piggybacked on the first with a bit more emphasis on WWII. I would highly recommend A Friend in Berlin.

          Wonderful tour with Outstanding Guide
          Thomas picked us up at our Air B & B and we never stopped learning for 5 plus hours. It was fascinating, especially for my husband, a lover of World II history. We visited the Olympic Stadium, saw the grounds and some outside exhibits at Wannsee( inside closed for renovations) and spent significant time at Cecilienhof Palace( site of 1945 Potsdam Conference.) Thomas had so much “local” information which typically isn’t in books. We also saw and learned about the Dutch Quarter. Highly recommend this tour which can be customized to your interests.

          Excellent private tour of Potsdam attractions
          My husband and I took a private tour of the Potsdam area attractions with a super guide, Thomas Frys. Thomas was very knowledgeable about Berlin, Potsdam, and German history, and greatly added to our knowledge during the tour. He was able to answer any questions we had about things we were seeing, and gave us in-depth knowledge about Frederick the Great, which helped us enjoy and understand our sightseeing. He is also an excellent driver! This was a very pleasant way to spend the day, and well worth the cost. Highly recommended!

          Private tour Warnemünde
          My parents and I took a Baltic Cruise which stops at Warnemünde, we’d like to go to Berlin for sightseeing, but my dad is 82, it’s not practical to go with big tour group. Luckily we found Jo’s team. The arrangement was hassle free, from the picking up from the port to the guided tour in the city, every detail was perfect. Our driver and guide were both professional and knowledgeable. We had great time there. Thank you 😊

          Reflective Tour of Berlin
          Thomas was an excellent guide. He was extremely efficient with time, parking, bathroom breaks, water bottles, site visits and the many laminated teaching aides he had available to pass around the car (see attached sample). The things we learned from his words and the thoughts that they inspired will last a lifetime. My teenagers were engaged and left motivated to learn more, be better and make a difference. What else could a parent ask for? Probably the most interesting part of the day for me was asking Thomas about his perspective from being born and raised in East Germany before the wall came down. Wow. What a treat for me to hear his candid and moving words. It was just an incredible day!! Message me for details....

          5 Hour Private Tour of Berlin
          This was a wonderful tour. Thomas our guide was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable. We saw all the important sites of Berlin and Thomas gave us great insights into the history of the city. Thomas was also very accommodating. We asked if he could bring us to a certain cemetery to find our ancestors’ gravesites. He immediately agreed and waited outside while we searched for the sites. When we mentioned we’d like to make a trip to Sans Souci castle in Potsdam, he reorganized his day to extend our tour so he could drive us to Potsdam. He then dropped us off at the end of the day at the home of our relatives who had invited us to dinner that night. Thomas was also very solicitous and helpful with our 87- year old mother who needed to use a walker wherever we went. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed this tour and especially the tour guide.

        We had scheduled a tour guide that cancelled on us last minute so we took a chance and scheduled here. Thomas was excellent and were glad our other cancelled! He packed so much in 3 hours and his passion is amazing. We enjoyed it so much that we wished we had him all day! Gave us a good appreciation of the history and ability to “feel” it. We would highly recommend Thomas!

        We had the best tour and tour guide with Thomas! He was very knowledgeable and passionate. We learned a lot about German history, how WWII and the Cold War affected Germans and those living in Berlin, and we saw the major historical sites. It was everything we hoped for and more!

        Visited Berlin after disembarking a Princess cruise in Westamunde?? Our tour guide was excellent. He had an excellent handle on all the history of pre-Hitler Germany and we visited ALL the tourist attractions at our leisure. The vehicular transportation was top notch and pickup was at my hotel. Highly recommend.

        Thomas was our guide for the afternoon after we arrived early from US and had a chance to nap and shower. It was the perfect way to start our trip to Berlin. Thomas was well versed in history, politics and general in-depth knowledge of the area. He gave us a an excellent overview so that we knew what we wanted to see for the remainder of our trip. It is a big city and spread out! Just delightful guide! The communication prior to our arrival was extraordinary!!

        We booked two 3 hour trips for four people with Thomas, having told him this in advance it was so easy for him and us to set up itinerary and what was going to happen each day. We had loads of questions and he was brilliant and passionate and made sure our questions were answered. We had been before and didn't use tour guide, we missed so much and didn't realise the significance until you have guide. Our friends had never been and its the only way to see everything, stop and take photos, understand what you are looking at. We do this everywhere we go now and this was time and money well spent. Top guy. He is also funny as he has picked up some English phrases and maybe uses them in the wrong places but give him credit, loved his company.

        Jo arranged for my 86-year-old Dad to have two 3-hour tours with Thomas over two days. Communicating with Jo was effortless, productive, friendly, and timely. She was amazing! Dad had a fantastic time with Thomas and hated to see him go. He said that Thomas was a wealth of knowledge and gave an interesting, historical perspective on everything they saw. Dad and I both highly recommend A Friend in Berlin!
