Both these tours were excellent in all respects. Our guides really brought the history of Berlin to life and we learnt so much more than simply reading the guide books.
Jared took tour no 1 and Mike, tour no 4. Both guides had such energy, enthusiasm and knowledge and seemed to want to keep us enthralled all day long, as they clearly loved their subject and had so much information to impart.
Mike was so keen to ensure we heard clearly, he walked backwards most of the way so he could deliver the information face to face. However, there was no danger of losing the dialogue as both guides had very clear voices and I had no difficulty, despite the fact that my hearing is not always up to scratch.
Excellent value for money and highly recommended. If this is the only thing you have time to do in Berlin - choose one of these tours. Would love to have gone on the others too but maybe we will come back another day.

Went on the tour of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with our tour guide, Mike. He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the subject. It was a snowing, freezing cold day, but it never affected him in the slightest. You could literally ask him any question and he had a book of information in response. Learned more from him about the subject than any history class. It was a shocking, incredible, and horrifying. Well worth the 12 euros; I would have paid more.

If you are visiting Berlin I highly recommend one of these walking tours.

I visited Berlin with a friend and wanted to get an overview of the sights as well as an insight of the history of this great city - booked the Insider "Famous Walk" Tour via Expedia.

It was easy to join the tour by meeting at the designated start point & just handing over our Expedia voucher.

The tour was great - showing you all the main sights and much better than just sitting on a tour bus. Our tour guide (Barry) was brilliant - he delivered the tour with great enthusiasm and a lot of humour which helped to bring the city to life.

It's a shame that I wasn't in Berlin for longer as I would have loved to go on a couple of the other tours the Insider Tour company offers.

We joined their Sachenhausen Concentration Camp tour guided by Michael on 28 Feb. He gave an extremely well balanced, moving and at times disturbing account of what went on. If you are looking to hear the total Berlin story we can't recommend him highly enough. The train journey from Berlin to the site at Oranienburg was not straightforward due to some works being carried out on the railway. We had thought of making our own way there but now realised that would have been a mistake as Michael took all the hassle out of the journey. On reaching Berlin on the return train journey we all went our separate ways and we missed the opportunity of showing our appreciation, so Michael if you read this we would like to thank you again for a truly memorable day and for sharing with us your extensive knowledge of your subject.

My wife and I went on this tour while we were in Berlin. We had the pleasure of having Mike as our tour guide. Mike was great, he was not only resourceful and energetic throughout the day (-12 degrees on the day of the trip, I almost forgot the cold because I was immersed in Mike's stories), but also was willing to help and provide additional information on the place to go and place to eat in Berlin.
