“So much history”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We only had one full day in Berlin due to flight problems so we booked the free tour to give us a quick history of Berlin. These free tours are so valuable, the guides love what they do, you can tell through the enthusiasm in their voices, and the fact they do it for free.
Every stop provided us with crazy amounts of information, little quirky stories and jokes other tours don't provide and something a guide book will never give you.
Between posts the guide talked to every one in the group asking questions of where they are from and about their travels.
We had a short break at a coffee shop to grab a bite and coffee and use the bathroom which broke up the 3.5 hours nicely.
This is the best way to get an overview of the city and give you an idea of other places you may like to visit further.
Give a good tip, they deserve it!

“Free Tour - AMAZING”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

My guide Rob from Manchester was amazing! He was so passionate when telling the stories of Berlin that I and many other started blinking stupidly fast to try and not tear up because they were such moving stories. Yeah there are tour guides who know the city and the facts, but he told the stories in ways that cept your interest and really hit a nerve (a good nerve that is). I would highly rate doing this tour, and with him expecially!!! So glad I did it.

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

These guys are great. Our guide Robbie was a fountain of information and history and quiet the character as well. We saw all the best sights and enjoyed a hearty meal at the end. Definitely recommend to anyone, wether your budget (it's FREE) or just looking for a fantastic tour around Dublin.

“BEST Sandemans Tour so far!!!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Our third sandemans tour (Paris first, Amsterdam second) and geez, it keeps getting better and better! How is it possible?! If you're lucky, you will get Rob whose English humour is just an added bonus. Rob is an uber geek when it comes to German history. He took the group around the major attractions starting from Brandenburger Tor. His extensive research on the subject makes him pass for an historian but don't worry, it's not like taking history lessons at university from some dull professor! These guys are funny and make history interesting! I can't say for the others, but this guy was an encyclopedia. We learned so much in such a short space of time and wanted to know more, we booked him in the following day for the third Reich tour as well. Which I think is worth so much more than the 10-12 euro they advertise. Make sure you tip generously to keep these tours going!

Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Sam Noble's tour was fantastic. Really knew his stuff and very enthusiastic. Me and my girlfriend had a great time. Lots of deep involving history, he is also more than happy to give you advice on good places to drink eat and go.
