          Berlin
          Stop: 4 hours
          Discover the divided city of Berlin, retrace the often ghost-like trail of the death strip and the Berlin Wall, coming upon some of the more intriguing fortifications of its border, from guard towers to tank traps. Walk along Bernauer Strasse, site of many remarkable escape attempts. Learn of successful and failed escapes in the face of a Border Command that would sooner follow the order of 'shoot to kill' than allow the heinous crime of 'flight from the Republic'. Discover the methods of the Stasi (East German State Security) and learn about the systems, devices and people that kept the entire East German population under surveillance for 40 years. Who were the key figures in the GDR leadership and where are they today? Get an extraordinary insight into what it meant to live in the GDR, the eastern bloc’s most heavily policed state. What was it like to live "Behind the Wall"?

          Daniel was a brilliantly guide. Very informative and despite the tricky material relayed the information in a sensitive way. Definitely worth booking. It is quite a long day with lots of walking but would recommend.

          Walking Tour of Historical Berlin - an absolute must!
          Maggie, our guide, was PHENOMENAL! Hugely informative, presented in an engaging way. I was sorry when the tour ended - could have gone in all afternoon. Perfect start to our introduction to historical Berlin.

          The best guide for the best tour
          Theo our guide was absolutely amazing, top man and he made you feel so engaged with the activity that you don't even notice the time. Knowledgeable, funny and have an answer for most of your questions. He is your guy if you decided to do the tour. Every location has so much history, it is a must if you come to Berlin.

          A really authentic tour. Would highly recommend!
          We did this tour today with Nickolai. It was really brilliant and we learned so much history in only 2 hours. Well worth 2 hours of your holiday as you wouldn’t be able to find out half the stuff on your own or in a tourist guide. Very authentic tour. If you’re worried about the duration, it’s done at a really nice pace and my watch clocked just under 2 miles so should suit most levels of activity and I think would also be fine for buggies & wheelchairs as we were on streets

          Fantastic experience
          We took this tour with Hannah and are so very glad we did. We have done many guided trips in many countries and Hannah’s stood out today. She was incredibly knowledgeable and shared her knowledge in such a compelling, impactful and personal way. We wholly recommend this tour and hope you get Hannah as your guide.

        Rob from Manchester was a terrific guide. He had a tremendous historical perspective and enhanced the tour with historic photos from his iPad at various locations. He also tailored the experience for our teens. Really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend.

        I did this private tour with my daughter and her friend. Nick was our guide and was fantastic! His knowledge of the city and it's past was phenomenal and a private tour allowed us to visit areas tailored to our interests. He brought the tour to life with the many stories of Berlin's past, it's characters, escape stories and what life was like living in Berlin then and now.

        As a teacher who has now been bringing sixth-form history groups to Berlin annually since 2014, this is basically the first thing I book after flights and accommodation. We mostly use Mike whose own 'insider' perspective on the Cold War combines with unbelievable expertise, knowledge and flair to make him genuinely unmissable. That said, we've also used John, and following our recommendation of the company a colleague in another school has used Michael - they've all been incredible. Most recent tour (Sept 2018) was perhaps the best yet - it says something rather special when having done a tour 6 times it is as fresh, fascinating and insightful as it was the first.
