Our guide arrived at our hotel at the time promised and took us on a very informative tour of Berlin being very careful to give special attention to our expressed interests. The tour was definitely not of the "Scripted and hurried" variety. I would highly recommend HUmboldt tours to the discriminating and seasoned traveller.

I visited Berlin with my wife and 2 teenage children in December. The city is fantastic with so much to see and do but undoubtedly the highlight was having Bernhard as our guide. His knowledge is fantastic but more importantly he is a very special person on the human level. My teenage daughters instantly felt comfortable with Bernhard and were fascinated and enthralled with the way he imparted knowledge about Berlin, the holocaust, the fall of communism and many other aspects.We all just immediately clicked with Bernhard and there was a special connection that was not to be repeated for the rest of our time in Europe. Most of all Bernhard's kind and thoughtful manner , with him catering so well for the 4 of us who all had different needs and things we wanted to get out of the tour really made this a fantastic and unforgetable experience. Bernhard very quickly was able to assess what was important to us as a family and as individuals and this is what makes him so special. the only down side is that as Berlin was our first stop, the subsequent cities were not as good as Berlin as the guides we had there although knowledgeable, could not be compared with Bernhard and so they really never stood a chance and the kids kept asking why we couldn't have Bernhard for our whole trip! the driver Wolfgang was also fantastic and considerate . The whole experience was fantastic and we will have these wonderful memories forever.My elder daughter started reading a book that Bernhard gave her and couldn't put it down and she treasures it very much. We would highly recommend Bernhard if visiting Berlin and his personal accounts of growing up in the former East Germany were amazing.The photographs and the way Bernhard linked places and facts was outstanding. We miss him a lot and will never forget those 3 days in Berlin and hope to return one day.If visiting Berlin ,Bernhard is a must and will really make the visit very special. Don't bother looking anywhere else - go straight to Bernhard and you will not be disappointed.

We enjoyed a 5 day trip to Berlin in November with 32 students and 4 accompanying teachers and had the pleasure of being guided by Bernhard for two of those days (Third Reich tour, Sachsenhausen, GDR museum, Jewish life tour). Our students (all between 16 and 18) were absoultely mesmerised by Bernhard and his interesting, knowledgeable and enthusiasctically delivered stories and he was able to answer ANY questions. We thoroughly recommend Bernhard and will get him for our next school trip!
Thank you, Bernhard.

Our family of 4 very much enjoyed the 3-hour+ tour through Berlin's fascinating history. Bernhard was engaging, friendly, and extremely knowledgable. He engaged our questions and side-bar conversations about topics from the past and present. We enjoyed the tour, whether riding in the comfortable van or walking, learning about some of the finer points that transpired during the fall of the Berlin Wall, and what life was like during the Cold War era. I would recommend this tour to anyone, or family, wishing to see the major and off-the-beaten-path sites in Berlin, and highly recommend to those who take an interest in history. Bernhard is top-notch all the way!

Hello again Bernhard. We had a wonderful visit with you in Berlin.Our group of 48 was divided into 2 smaller groups, and afterward each person reported how much they appreciated your expertise in explaining German history and the city of Berlin. You brought it alive with pictures, maps and diagrams and personal insights. The ride from the cruise ship was arranged perfectly and we enjoyed that so much as well.. Thanks you again and again!
