We were so glad that we took this tour of Kreuzberg for a break from the tourist sites. By the end, we were charmed by this cool district for its history, hip stores and the excellent street art and street food. You could tell that our guide Peter loves his neighborhood and has a deep knowledge of it. He also gave us super recommendations how to enjoy the rest of our time in Berlin. Delightful day!

Martin was great, so engaging, answering all our questons. He lived through divided Berlin and was able to offer a very personal account of the iron curtain in addition to his helping us grasp the monuments but also subtle, small things in the city. We would have missed so many signs of the former separation if he hadn't been with us. Great host and storyteller.

Thanks to Martin for his tour. He was informative about Davie Bowie and his life in Berlin, and even gave us a history lesson in between to explain life in the city up to and during the 1970s. Not only that he was just a lovely guy in general with me and my wife chatting away to us about life while we travelled around the city. Would thoroughly recommend to any Bowie fans
