My husband and I just got back from Berlin and took an amazing 7 hour walking tour of Berlin. It was amazing mainly due to the guide, Brian Deidrick. He was so interesting to listen to - very dramatic and passionate about the city. We had a wonderful time as well as learned so much!!

We went on 4 walking tours during our 6 day stay in Berlin. This one stands out as the best by far ! John O' Leary of Insider Tours took us on the "Famous Walk" tour and enthralled both us and the rest of the group. He was fabulous. An educated historian with a capacity to entertain. He is humorous, energetic and enthusiastic. Obviously loves Berlin and his job. A people person, he engages with and involves all members of the group . We felt like a group of friends at the end of the tour.
He conveyed Berlin's past and present with great contextual knowledge and respect for the city. We learnt so much.
I highly recommend this tour as a first tour when visiting Berlin. To focus on the WW's is to miss so much of Berlin's history. It is a wonderful city and this tour helps you appreciate it.

I went on the Third Reich Tour with Barnaby as our guide and the Cold War Tour with Roy as our guide and I can highly recommend both tours and both guides. Barnaby and Roy were very knowledgeable - I have no idea how they remember so much information! The tours were great and gave an indepth insight into the history around Berlin.
Oh - and Roy's mum, if you are reading this - he was very helpful!

We did the tour with Maisie in early August. Maisie was a terrific guide, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The tour was interesting, the walk easy, the attractions sites relevant. I would recommend this tour for people considering spending a day in Potsdam. You don't waste your time trying to work everything out, the tour does as much as it can that is relevant which includes being provided with an overview of Potsdam and it's history as a town, walking through the palace and adjoining gardens, attending the site of the postsdam conference and some Cold War sites.

My friends and I had three days Berlin so we wanted to make our time count. We turned up for the "Famous Walk" tour on our first day. It was the best 10 euros I've ever spent. We saw all the major sites of Berlin, plus so many things that we would have totally missed if we hadn't gone on the tour. Our guide Taylor was an absolute treat. He was so knowledgable and charismatic - he managed to convey the unique spirit of Berlin with respect for the city's rich history. He really made four hours fly by. He was also super helpful and kind to give us all tips about places to visit in Berlin, making us feel less like desperate tourists.

We loved the famous walk tour so much that we decided to go with Insider Tours to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on our second day. Again, it was such a worthy purchase. The tour guide Ashleigh was great at making sure a massive group of us got the correct public transport out to the camp. The tour around the camp was incredibly informative, sensitive and interesting.

All in all, I paid 20 euro to Insider tours and I saw and learned so much that i would have missed out on without them. Definitely money well spent and i recommend it to anyone visiting Berlin.
