Such an interesting and informative tour! A must do on a Berlin trip. Jeff took the time to answer on every question and showed parts of Berlin I hadn't even visited yet.

I did not expect the tour to be as informative and interesting as it was - there wasn't much salacious about it at all, so expect to LEARN! Jeff was an insanely knowledgable guide, who clearly enjoys educating and is still v. much (understandably) in love with Berlin. He is very open and informative, and willing to share his knowledge AND his insights into the city and the feeling of the city - something I really appreciate. His tour is very well designed, such that you pause in places to learn, there are videos to watch that are, in some cases, harrowing, but the design of the tour gives you a great glimpse into all that happened in the past regards sexuality and freedom of sexual expression in Berlin - taking you to the current feeling. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the local kiez as we went through Nollendorfkiez as well, and the history of some of the buildings was brilliant to see/learn/wonder about. Highly recommend the tour for both it's content and it's fantastic guide.

Great tour learning about how progressive Germany was about sexuality and how shifts in society can affect ones rights. Beautiful to see how free and accepting Germay has become.

Jeff is a wonderful tour guide who is passionate about the subject, explains everything in a fascinating way, has the very best anecdotes to tell and gives you desire to move to Berlin and discover everything. Everything was planned perfectly, he showed pictures and small videos to illustrate his points and it did not get boring once. I highly recommend this tour to everyone looking for a more exciting tour :-)
