“Humboldt Tours: Berlin, Germany”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

The tour, guided by Bernhard, was the best part of our stay in Berlin. We were four adults. Bernhard was knowledgeable, easy to be with, obviously enjoys what he does....couldn't have asked for a better guide. The van was driven by a wonderful man, Wolfgang, and it was a help to have the transportation taken care of. Berlin is a sprawling city with historic sites located miles apart.

If you go to Berlin, book with Humboldt.

“Very good tour, great driver/vehicle”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We recently visited Berlin on NCL's Baltic Sea cruise. It is far more efficient to take a private vehicle/tour in from the port vs a train (which is what most cruiseships recommend). According to the Bjorn of Humboldt Tours, the guides and vehicles are NOT Humboldt Tours employees, but are outsourced from a source of guides/drivers. This is the main reason I'm giving it 4-stars vs 5-stars, as that could be an issue for potential customers as you'll never be entirely certain of who you'll get.

But for us, our driver/vehicle and tour guide were fantastic. One area of improvement is that during all of the driving, it was hard to hear the guide when he sat upfront in the bus. We did a tour in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the guide there had a microphone for the bus so we could always clearly hear the guide.

But overall, it was a positive experience/guide.

humboldttoursberlin, Inhaber at Humboldt Tours Berlin -Tours, responded to this review, September 10, 2013

i am very pleased to read you had a great time in Berlin, which was not by coincidence but our care & diligence. There might have been a misunderstanding. Of course, we do have a core team and working with them since years. It was the first thing, i did, when i founded Humboldt Tours Berlin and which I care most about. In 99% of our tours, we only work with our core team members.

However you were a LAST-minute booking on a High-Season day (with 4 cruise ships in-harbor) and we took an external guide with very high recommendations… If I would not have known he is excellent, I would have refused your tour.

If you like to book a specific guide in summer from June-August, please book early in the season or at least some weeks before your tour,
best wishes

“Our tour guide, Nadin Middell, was the best ever.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

we booked our tour thru humbolt tours berlin. we were a little nervous booking not thru the cruise but this was the best deal ever for our group of six adults.we were picked up on time and taken to sachsenhausen concentration camp where we picked up Nadin Middell, our guide. She was the best, she was so knowledgeable about everything, she has her masters in history and i can't say enough about her. then on to Berlin where she told us many interesting things that only a local would know. this is a great company for anyone to take a tour with. Bjoern Awe is the owner i believe and he actually called us back about our bookings, a couple of other places didn't even respond to our request. i would recommend and also take this tour site in the future, you can't go wrong. thanks so much guys, john carter

“Excellent City Tour with Sebastian of Humboldt Tours Berlin!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

My husband and I were part of a group of 8 friends from a Regent Cruise who experienced Berlin first hand for over 4 hours with Sebastian on Saturday, July 28. A private and very comfortable van picked us up at a predetermined meeting place and then delivered us to the many Berlin landmarks that we visited; it was always right there to pick us up again as we finished walking around and touring each highlight. Sebastian was enjoyable and pleasant, as well as very knowledgable, his comments were interesting, and his English was impeccable. We all agreed it was an educational and enjoyable day and would highly recommend Sebastian and Humboldt Tours Berlin!!!

“Excellent Tour with Nadin”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visited Berlin in late June and had an absolutely incredible tour with Nadin.

The tour was 6+ hours and stopped at many of the key tourist sites. Nadin was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the city. She put each site in historical context, while also providing anecdotes to keep things more memorable and engaging. Also great energy - a 6 hour tour can really start to drag, and I never felt as if it had gone too long.

Really cannot recommend highly enough!
