    We did this tour on 18th March 2023. Our tour guide was Jim. He was very friendly and enthusiastic. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the areas we visited on the tour and about German history in general. Excellent experience all round. Would definitely recommend this.

    Oren gave us a very informative tour. Learned a lot about Berlin’s history and saw all the attractions I was interested in seeing. Definitely recommend. Walking tour gave us a much closer look at the amazing sights.

    Stefan was so good. He catered the walk to any questions asked and really thought about his answers. His family background from East Germany and participation in some of the more recent big events really brought Berlin’s history to life.

    It was - 2 degrees when we started the tour and I was prepared to get frozen walking the streets of Berlin. It was not so, while we were a bit cold walking around and visiting all the iconic landmarks of Berlin with our very knowledgeable guide made the time go quick. We learnt and saw a lot and the walking kept the cold away. It was a good eye opener into the history of this beautiful and strong city.

    We loved our guide Hannah and thought it was a great way to see all the important sights in Berlin with excellent historical detail, especially because we were only in the city for a few days and wanted to see/learn about all the sights in a short amount of time!

    We had Maria as a tour guide. She was great! Very easy to listen too. She had extensive knowledge of german history and the sites as well as other anecdotal information. The tour hit all the major sites in an efficient manor. Would take a tour with them again.
