“Excellent, knowledgable & professional guide- Harald made our trip!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Our group of 20 teens had a 20 hour layover in Germany and so we booked two tours with Harald Zawuski. He helped coordinate the bus pick up in the airport & drop off the following morning. We incorporated the bus into our night time experience - seeing the best of Berlin (as much as we could fit into our brief layover) with several stops for photos or further exploration. Our group was coming from Israel, so Harald did his best to incorporate WWII and pre-WWII Jewish history into the program with great success. This group of somewhat excitable teens hung on his every word as he captured their interest and imagination - not an easy task. Overall, we were very impressed with his ability to tell the Berlin story - but also to make it engaging, relevant and fun. Great job Harald !

“Berlin with Harald”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We spent more than 5 hours touring Berlin both by car and by foot with Harald. He gave us a complete and detailed account of all the important sights in Berlin and especially the history of all we visited. We were able to get around the city easily by car. The driver always let us off near where Harald wanted to take us. The walking tour was just as interesting. We even stopped at a cool soup cafe for a quick lunch. It was delicious! Harald was recommended to us by friends who toured with him. We can say unreservedly that we recommend Harald to anyone who wants a very special time seeing the sights and learning about Berlin as it was then and how it exists today.

“Best Berlin tour guide”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Harald Zawuski is an excellent guide to use for touring E/W Berlin by car for 2-3 hrs. He and his driver met us at the main Berlin train station --where we began our tour. We managed to see the main sights -even with the terrible traffic that was caused by new construction of a subway station on Utter de Linden.

“job well done”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Harald was an excellent guide and we enjoyed our time with him. The one glitch was the meeting place in front of the hotel he suggested. We had trouble finding it. When you book with him be sure to get details of the hotel location or suggest something easier to find.
