I had another company set up two private tours in Berlin. They chose A Friend in Berlin and my guide was Josh. I'm a bit remiss in posting a review. I had the tours in mid-September and then got carried away by the rest of my trip. But I enjoyed the tours so much I wanted to make sure that I gave them a five-star rating. Josh was knowledgeable, interesting and interested in my questions and what I wanted to see. The first tour was a Highlights of Berlin scheduled for the day after my arrival. I really felt that I got an excellent baseline of the city, its history and its culture. The second tour piggybacked on the first with a bit more emphasis on WWII. I would highly recommend A Friend in Berlin.

Thomas picked us up at our Air B & B and we never stopped learning for 5 plus hours. It was fascinating, especially for my husband, a lover of World II history. We visited the Olympic Stadium, saw the grounds and some outside exhibits at Wannsee( inside closed for renovations) and spent significant time at Cecilienhof Palace( site of 1945 Potsdam Conference.) Thomas had so much “local” information which typically isn’t in books. We also saw and learned about the Dutch Quarter. Highly recommend this tour which can be customized to your interests.

My husband and I took a private tour of the Potsdam area attractions with a super guide, Thomas Frys. Thomas was very knowledgeable about Berlin, Potsdam, and German history, and greatly added to our knowledge during the tour. He was able to answer any questions we had about things we were seeing, and gave us in-depth knowledge about Frederick the Great, which helped us enjoy and understand our sightseeing. He is also an excellent driver! This was a very pleasant way to spend the day, and well worth the cost. Highly recommended!

My parents and I took a Baltic Cruise which stops at Warnemünde, we’d like to go to Berlin for sightseeing, but my dad is 82, it’s not practical to go with big tour group. Luckily we found Jo’s team. The arrangement was hassle free, from the picking up from the port to the guided tour in the city, every detail was perfect. Our driver and guide were both professional and knowledgeable. We had great time there. Thank you 😊
