Had a great Third Reich walking tour led by the very informative and interesting guide Barnaby.
They offer several other tours also and I'll book another one next time for sure.

Our guide was Barnaby who on a very cold day kept all our enthusiasm up for the full 4 hours and displayed his excellent knowledge of the city and what happened where. He obviously loves his job and took great care to explain everything - welcoming, and then fielding questions with assurance. A great guide with a good sense of humour - he`s also a musician - we should have asked him what instrument he plays!

Our guide Maria did and excellent job taking us through the history and locations related to the Cold War. She was very knowledgeable and a great story teller. Some of our stops were the Palace of Tears, a Ghost UBahn Station, and Stasi Headquarters. It was a great day. Put on your walking shoes and wear longjohns if it is a cold day.

I wondered how we would manage with 3 generations ranging from 67 to 5 years old on a walking tour of Berlin, but it was a GREAT tour with Taylor from Australia. I'm not sure we could retrace our walk but we learned a lot and became very familiar with Berlin. The walk was easy enough for all of us, even though it was really cold that day. We were glad to have done it the first day of our 4 days in Berlin because it helped us all decide what to do next. I would highly recommend this company. Don't be afraid of 4-5 hours of walking because it was actually easy and over before we realized it.

We're usually to be found with several guide books and our own company on holiday but, due to limited time in Berlin, we booked this 4 hour guided walk around the city centre. A little sceptical we turned up at the alloted place and time to meet our guide and a small, multi-national group. Inside of 5 minutes our Australian guide, Taylor, had the whole party at ease and we set off to view some of the sights of Berlin. I wont go into the itinerary but I am now a convert to this type of thing. Taylor had it spot on with just the right mix of information delivered with enthusiasm and, where appropriate, a dry, laconic humour. We learned more in the tour than we could ever have hoped to with our guide book and the time raced by! I cannot recommend this highly enough. Cheers Taylor and Insider Tours! Rob and Jo Riby.
