We were going to do the bus tour, but the walking tour got recommended by a friend and it certainly didnt disappoint. Our guide Barnaby was very knowledgable about the city and also made the tour fun especially since it was a bitterly cold day with his wit and stories. This is a great way to see the cities main tourist attractions and also some attractions that you would miss if you were on the bus. The tour lasts about 4 and a half hours but before you know it the time will fly by with a much needed coffee break in the middle, just to heat you up again. Definitely the best way to find out about Berlin and its history.

Our tour guide of Berlin was with New Zealand Mike. He was fantastic in terms of historical information on Berlin and presented it in a very engaging and energetic manner. He was also very obliging with his time even after he had 'clocked off' from the tour.

At New Year we had a family visit to Berlin during which we twice used Insider Tours. The company offers several options and my only regret is that we didn't have time to do all of them.
Barry was engaging, entertaining and vastly knowledgeable on the Third Reich Tour. We are a family of six (youngest 14) and everyone found the experience incredibly interesting and memorable.
Then, on New Year's Day, Nigel, who had selflessly resisted all temptations of the previous night, took us on an energetic tour of the old Berlin, taking in monuments, museums and so much more - all of which included references to modern Berlin as well as its darker, recent history.
Both walks were the highlight of our visit to Berlin and both Barry and Nigel passed on an infectious enthusiasm for this fascinating city.
On both trips it felt like looking around the city with a knowledgable friend rather than a tour guide. Don't miss out.
