Rob is very charismatic, funny and enthusiastic. The tour was educational without boring you with Berlin's immense history. It really showed how much Rob loves Berlin. Thank you, Rob, for not just discussing the negative aspects of Germany on your tour and for acknowledging Germany's countless contributions to the world!

We did the tour last sunday, March 26th, and our guide Júlio Decker was very spirituous, energetic and talkative. He took us through the main parts of Berlin and added many layers of history this great city has in it's past. Definitely a must!

Went on the free walking tour of Berlin on Friday 22nd March 2013, with Sophie as our guide. Was a really great way to see a lot of the city. Sophie was a great, engaging tour guide and kept us enthused despite the freezing cold temperatures and our huge hangovers! Had a nice stop off in a cafe halfway through with the best hot chocolates in the world. Would definitely recommend this to other travellers! But wear comfy shoes!

Went on this tour today... Despite freezing weather (minus 7) our guide was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and took us to some interesting nooks... Some of which I had been to by myself or on other tours, eg Berlin Wall memorial and the Palace of Tears, but he had different stories and there were things new in each place. Others were totally new... Would be hard to do this tour on your own as it involves quite a bit of public transport between sites, we saw a lot in 4 hours inc a very good cafe with excellent cakes and hot pistachio drink. Julio is actually German, despite his name, and has a PhD in history... You're in safe hands. Highly recommended.

I cannot believe how much I learned in the span of just over 3 hours. The history was told clearly and was fascinating. Thank you DAVID J!
