We traveled to Berlin, Germany by way of a cruise to Germany's coast and then had a two hour private van ride for 7 people to Berlin to meet our guide Finn Ballard (berlinwalks.de.com) . Finn was an excellent guide. He is an Irish lad who found his way to Berlin 5 years ago in pursuit of PhD studies and has since made Berlin his home. He has studied the history and culture extensively. His knowledge was a perfect fit for my husband who was an undergraduate history major and is particularly interested in World War I and II history. My college aged children enjoyed hearing about contemporary issues regarding Berlin's younger generation. My 82 year old father was moved when he saw such important sites he had only see in photos and read about. For me, I appreciated his condensed review of what we were about to experience. The tour was fast paced as we were a mobile group and we covered over a dozen sites. Finn prepared us with background information and with a file of photographs prior and during the site visits. His humor was delightful as well.

Sam Noble was an outstanding guide. His historical and local knowledge gave us all a very deep and vibrant view of this city. He was able to interest a party of 39 people whose ages ranged from 15 - 75. He was well balanced in his views about the Wars and about the re-development of the City. A man who blended humour with fact. We will look out for other similar tours in other cities. Thank you Sam.

Our guide,Amy, who took us on the Sandemans Free Berlin tour both entertained and informed us on the free tour, which was a great introduction to Berlin.
Although it is free tipping is encouraged, and we gladly did so.

Pen took us on a very interesting tour of the Third Reich. Pen kept the whole crew engaged and i found the whole event fascinating. The tour lasted over four hours with alot of walking although bus and train journeys included. Covered alot of ground and time passed very quickly as Pen was a mind of information. Highly recommend this tour

A week ago we have been in Berlin and we had three daily tours with a guide Asaf .The tours were very interesting. Asaf's knowledege is great and we learnt a lot about the history of the city and the tragedy of the second world war, the jews, the "wall", the process which the Germans had passed through after the war untill they started to recognize and to teach about the war . We are recommending to join these tours and enjoy from professional guidance.
