My husband and I have been to Berlin before but somehow missed all the big sights. We thought it best to visit them and were so grateful we picked 'The Famous Insider Walk'. Our guide was Nickolai and, although I am writing this 2.5 months later, we are still amazed by the sheer amount of content he was able to deliver. The tour covered all the 'must see' landmarks and Nickolai told us interesting information for each. He was truthful, yet sensitive with his historical context and invited questions throughout. Although it was very cold in early Feb, this did not reduce Nickolai's enthusiasm and he managed to find a few wind breaks to pause and deliver his stories, for which we were grateful!

Overall, highly recommended. The tour is long, and you will cover some miles, but as long as you are prepared for this, you can enjoy every moment. We booked in advance on the company website and were able to obtain a small discount.

We took "The Famous Insider Walk" of Berlin, which is somehow not listed here, but you can find it on the company website.
It was my first ever walking tour as they had never really interested me, but this experience has converted me, and now I want to do them everywhere I go, even in my own home city!
Four hours might sound long, but it was totally worth it, even on a freezing cold day. The tour covered all of the key sites and our guide, Chloe, provided all sorts of fascinating information that really opened my eyes to the world-changing history of this vibrant city in which some of the darkest moments of the human story are still so tangible.
Our guide, Chloe, was super engaging, enthusiastic, knowledgable, well-prepared, and made sure that every member of our group of 15 felt included.
Overall, I can highly recommend this tour. I'm a historian/archaeologist by profession, and I learned so much in the four hours and now want to go home and read even more. By the end of the tour I felt that I could see the Berlin from a new perspective, and things that seemed weird suddenly made sense.

This is a review about Insider Tour Berlin as well as our guide Jamie.

We had decided to go with Insider Tour Berlin after reading many great reviews about them.

Mike at Insider Tour Berlin attended to our queries / request to arrange a private tour. He was warm, friendly and responded to our queries promptly. He provided us with useful advice and tips about how best to arrange our tour and we decided on a 1.5 day private tour (8 hours for Day 1 and 5 hours for Day 2). He arranged a very comfortable private mini bus for our group of 6 adults and 5 kids. Our bus drivers were also very friendly.

Jamie was our guide. He is the BEST guide we’ve ever had. An archaeologist, he is passionate about history and brought history to life for us. At the start of the tour, we had informed Jamie that the purpose of our tour was to give our kids, particularly the three teens in our group who would be studying history in the coming school year, a introduction into the history of WWI, WWII and the Cold War. Jamie captured all our attention, adults and kids alike, including an eleven year old, with all the historical accounts and interesting facts. He linked the various historical accounts together, enabling us to see the bigger picture. He had a wealth of historical knowledge and was able to answer the many questions we directed at him. He did all these, often walking backwards with our imposing group of eleven advancing on him!

We highly recommend Insider Tours Berlin and Jamie!

Family of 5. Insider Tour. We ended up.having Nickolai to ourselves for the 3 hours. Highlight of the trip. His calibre of storytelling is so high that he kept even the 9 year old engaged. History totally brought to life. I would not have appreciated Berlin so much had I not done the tour and it put the subsequent museum visits into context. Cannot recommend highly enough

Me and my partner did the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin and it was definitely worth booking. The tour guide Maria was very knowledgeable on the topic and went through a lot of detail of particular areas around the camp, while continuously keeping it interesting. She also went through some information at the start of the tour before we got inside, telling us why it was different to other camps and what it’s used for now and so forth. I would definitely recommend doing this tour to those who love history and who are visiting the camp for the first time.

This is definitely an all day trip but well worth the time. We booked the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (SCC) tour with Insider Tour and Nickolai was our outstanding guide. Nickolai has a PhD and is able to answer any question you have. I highly recommend Nickolai! Start with a meeting place, take train, walk and end up at SCC. It is a haunting place, quiet, and thought
provoking. Nickolai's stories about SCC were so touching and educational, almost sounding personal. If you are visiting Berlin area, please visit SCC.

Jasper was remarkable - I was worried about 3 hours of walking but it we r so fast because of Jaspers knowledge and staging.

Jaspers language skills are better than mine as is his grasp of history.
He was aware of Germany’s part without being apologetic - this tone was perfect.
We saw everything a tourist would expect to see and I felt informed at the end.

Highly recommended

Another great tour with Inside Tour. Rafa showed us the city with history lesson of the Third Reich, background stories and significance of pictures, landmarks and monuments. He’s enthusiastic and passionate about what he knows. He’s well prepared and has so much to share yet so little time. Totally would take his tours again.

A fantastic way to dive into Berlin's recent tormented history. Josh provided an enlightening guide with very clear and relevant explanations on each of the visited sites (Tränenpalast, Nordbahnhof, Alexanderplatz). A really interesting experience, very much worth its price. Daniel and Aya, Brussels.

Pip was our tour guide and she was absolutely amazing. Her accurate descriptions of everything that happened at Sachsenhausen really touched us and made us all reflect on how things could have been so different.

Sincere gratitude to Pip and Insider tour for this trip and most importantly reminding us about the ones we’ve lost.
