Harald was knowledgeable, never boring, always informative and with great command of English. We stayed in Mitte, in the former east Berlin so we could walk to most of the sights we were interested in, with Harald telling us general things about east Berlin as we went. I've been responsible for tour groups and on the receiving end of many, many guides - Harald is one of the best.

Harald gave us an excellent overview of the highlights of Berlin. He spoke both fluently and factually guiding us in a modern clean vehicle. Not only would we have been unable to visit so much in 4 hours by ourselves but being told the history of each location added infinitely more to our experience. It was a pleasure to visit Berlin due to the expertise of our guide and the entire family learnt more about the history of Germany in a day than we ever learnt in a history class!

Last week we spent a day in Berlin touring with Harald as our guide. It was fabulous. Harald had us picked up at the cruise dock and driven to Berlin proper. The driver and car were both perfect. As Harald said his tour of five hours would seem like only two hours.

We saw both the German and Jewish sights and could not have asked for a better historian than Harald. We got a wonderful sense of both the old and new Berlin.

We enjoyed every moment of our day with Harald and would certainly give him five stars....Marjorie G.

My wife and I had a five hour private tour with Harald and a driver and it was a great way to see the city and learn its history. Harald is an excellent guide and he showed us some very interesting places tucked away in alleys that we would never have found. His album of pictures of before and after the war are very telling and he is very knowledgeable and organized. Our emphasis was WWII and the Cold War and Harald did not disappoint. I would highly recommend using Harald when in Berlin.

Very much enjoyed the 3 hour walking tour we had with Harald. Informative, well planned and just the right mix of facts and chat made the time pass all too quickly. It really gave us a good basis to enjoy the rest of the weekend in Berlin. The photo pack he carried to show the former Berlin from various standpoints was a clever idea and a real bonus. Would definitely recommend Harald.
