We stayed in Berlin for 3 days. On our second day we booked this ‘TOURS in English’ ‘Enigma Tours’ (from the yellow leaflet we picked at our hotel in Berlin). I guess this is an independent tour company. His name is Guy from South Africa...More

Firstly, my tours are done in very large minivans. At no time did I guarantee this lady that they would be the only 2 people on the tour. At €55 per person for Potsdam, I am somewhat incredulous that they would expect a private tour...More
I was here with a group of business associates and took this tour on Saturady. I guess that my expectations were fairly low, but what a pleasnt surprise it was. All of us were picked up at a place of our choosing which was included...More

Hi John, don't know why your initial expectations were so low lol. Glad it was to your liking. What you say about the two hours or so is true. It really is hard holding people's attention for that length of time. You have to use...More
My wife and I did the tour this afternoon and I felt I had to write a review as it was so enjoyable. We booked for 2 sharp and the bus was waiting at our hotel exactly at the right time. Very friendly and competent...More

Hi there. Think your name was Cedric, but not sure. Anyhow, many thanks for the great review. It always means a lot to me when people enjoy my tours. At least it gives me some feedback as to whether I'm doing the right thing or....More
Did this with my family yesterday. Was scorchignly hot, so was glad to have an AC. Covered all the major spots of Berlin in a very intimate way. One downside was that the CD we were promised containing the pictures failed to work when I...More

Hi Sandy. Sorry about the malfunctioning CD. Hope the problem was sorted out. Thank you for your kind words. Hope you have a great trip back home. BTW, did you ever get to have lunch at the KaDeWe?
I can’t give a 5 star review for this tour. We did the Berlin City Tour yesterday. The information was very very particular about being at the hotel door at exactly 10:00 for pick up. At 10:20 we phoned to get an ETA. The van...More

I generally run with incredible punctuality. I apologised profusely to Frances and her companion. They did the tour on the Monday. The day before (Sunday) I received the sad news that my mother had unexpectedly passed away in Cape Town. My distraction due to this...More

Thanks PJ. Glad the tour was to your liking. Hope you had a nice trip to Venice. See you again next year?
It would be hard for me to think of any criticism of this tour. They collected us from our hotel at no extra charge. Tours were in a minivan with a select few other people. Commentary and knowledge of tour guide exemplary. Plenty of ribald...More

Thank you Rod. I enjoyed your company immensely. And your'e no slouch in the humour department either. BTW, I sent you the reference for that book to your email address. Hope you received it.
Did the tour with a group of associates from London. I think this is a tour ranged at the well educatred. Guide was well spoken (I think from South Africa?) and clearly knew his stuff. Very little he did not know about Berlin. But was...More

Thank you so much for your kind review Rod. It helps a lot when one gets an appreciative response. Hope the rest of 2018 is good to you.
Oh boy, what a pleasant experience! My expectations were not that high as the previous tours I've done of Berlin have been mediocre at best. This was different. Was picked up from my hotel at 11 sharp (they collect you at no extra charge) and...More

Thanks David, glad that you were satisfied. Always pleased to be of service to tourists travelling to Berlin. Hope the rest of your time heer was spent in an enjoyable fashion.
To put it simply, this is one of the finesrt tours I have done in ages. Being in the film industry (here for the Berlinale), I know a thing or two about good entertainment. This tour was replete with entertainment as well as educational. They...More

Thank you Mr Davids. Think I remember you by your special hat! Hope the Berlinale went well and that you got that contract you were looking for. Look forward to seeing you again next year? Kind words indeed - thanks again.
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while
residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
