“Perfect tour even if travelling alone - Mike was amazing!”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

I was visiting some friends in Berlin and decided to do some 'tourist' activities solo; Met at the meeting point for this tour, and even though it rained most of the 4 hours, I would do another one in a heart beat - Mike was informative, riveting, and really kept everyone's interest with his knowledge of everything we toured and more. Thank you!

“best history tour in Berlin”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

If you have any interest in the Second World War, Hitler and why so many people lost their lives in this war, then go on the tour "The Third Reich" with Barnaby. As well as being a total expert on this period he also knows Berlin inside out so points out little things like Michael Jacksons Balcony at the Aldon and why England should have a better football team! Very, very enjoyable and knowledgable four hours in his company on what is a very serious subject which we should all really know about. Be prepared, his final talks near the bunker and SSHQ are very moving and quite rightly so. 10 out of 10 Barnaby.

“Attention grasping! For 4 hours straight...”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

I got to this company via Tripadvisor. It turned out to be the best 10euro's ever spend on tourism.

I had the Swedish David as a guide. Except for being very funny, David knew to grasp our attention for four hours straight. He made the tour interactive and adapted it to the nationalities participating. He didn't stick to the standard history stories, but threw in all sorts of intersting and funny anecdotes to spice up the tour.

I would definately recommend this tour. You won't regret it!

“Went on two really great walking tours”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

I went on two walking tours: the Famous Insider Walk with David, and the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp tour with Jesse.

I don't want to give too much away, but the Famous tour takes you to locations from the Prussian Empire, the Nazis, the Communists, and the Jewish Holocaust Memorial.

The concentration camp tour takes you on a train ride just outside Berlin to a concentration camp, the first site the SS designed and built to hold prisoners to use as forced labor.

Both tours were a bit of a hike, so if you don't like walking this probably isn't the tour for you. But if you do like walking, both guides I had were super friendly and really knew their history. They also managed to keep the group together, which at times looked like it was harder than herding cats. So big props to the guides for that.

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

We took the "Inside the wall-cold war" tour with a guide called Barnaby. The tour lasted about 4 hours. The guide took us to the interesting and less visited places relating to the east-west cold war era. His phenomenal knowledge and ability to explain the history, culture and socioeconomic forces as well as a great (British) sense of humor helped us understand better the impossible and crazy world we lived in not so far ago.

Thank you very much for a lovely time
