We didn’t have high expectations when we went to the guided tour. However, this was the best experience we have ever had and even our 16 year old daughter got interested. Our guide Mr Mondaca was very knowledgeable about the early and modern history about Berlin we should have booked this tour over two days as the city have gone through so many things.

I wish I’d done this tour earlier in my stay in Berlin as it was so informative and insightful of both the history and the contemporary issues at play in the city and the region. Francisco stands as one of my favourite tour guides in tours I’ve taken across Europe. He is warm, intelligent and his passion for history, architecture and the city itself translates to a highly entertaining and in-depth tour - he was also flexible and catered to the groups dynamics and knowledge and went above and beyond. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!

We've been traveling Europe for a couple of weeks and have gone on tours in every city. Birchys Berlin's tour of the wall was by far the best. The tour guide was fantastic, really knowledgeable and the locations they take you are off the beaten track. You get a lot more than your average city tour. Will definitely take another tour with this outfit!

My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Francisco around the Berlin wall, which was packed with trips to monuments, train stations, viewpoints and museums.

Francisco was so knowledgeable about the wall and the whole historical context of Berlin - he had hugely informative answers to even our most random questions.

His passion for art and architecture was evident throughout our tour and really added to the experience, which gave us a real snapshot of Berlin's past and present from a political, sociological and artistic perspective.

Above all, Francisco was so warm and enthusiastic that this tour became the highlight of our trip. Thanks Francisco!

We were disappointed with this. Our guide knew lots but tried to tell us far too much, consequently we spent far too long at a few places and only seemed to visit the standard tourist sites.

Oh no Liz.sorry to hear that you were not completely happy with your tour. I have had a word with your guide who took you to make sure he adjusts himself in future. The fact that your tour coincided with the Berlin Marathon did mean that we had to deviate from our usual tour route and am sure the cold and torrential rain did not help the situation! We hope you did have a great time in Berlin otherwise.

Aaron is amazing, we had a private cold war tour through Berlin, he took me to many differeng places and told me very interesting stories about the construction of the wall, the life inside the DDR and incredible escapes. He’s deeply knows about these subjects and has many years of experience. This tour is a must for people who like history. Thank you I absolutely recommend!
