    Fabulous tour. Great introduction to Berlin ... all the major sites included. The tour guide was wonderful. If you do nothing else whilst visiting Berlin -- take this tour!!

    Our tour guide was Rob from Manchester, and he was honestly one of the best tour guides I've had, and I always do walking tours of cities as it's by far the best way to see it properly. I do enjoy history but I don't always get why things happened. Rob has a wonderful way of explaining things to make them very human and relateable. He didn't list out boring facts and dates but instead told interesting stories that really drew us in. He is obviously a real history buff and truly loves Berlin. This walking tour is long but so interesting and the time flies. Just a tip, make sure and go to the loo when you get a pitstop in the middle of the tour!!!

    Awesome and informative tour of Berlin! It was great for both my parents and I who had totally different interests. I was able to learn a lot about Berlin’s history and they got to take tons of pics. Our tour guide was Nathan and he was beyond amazing. If possible, definitely request him!

    Heidi was brilliant, very knowledgable and helpful. It was a great way to see the city and get orientated.

    James was very good. Very informative, and elaborated a lot on history and events associated with each monument quite well. Our 9 year old son who joined us on the tour really had a great time walking with James

    Superb tour. Jonathan, our guide was very informative and knowledgeable. We had two young children with us and Jonathan made an effort to engage with them which was appreciated. Just the right amount of time to give enough information to decide what you want to explore in more detail. Covered most of the major sites too.

    Jonathan was an excellent guide. The 4 hour walking tour was interesting and reflective. Rather than just telling us the history of the sites in Berlin he encouraged us in a respectful way to think and learn from it. We thoroughly would recommend it.

    This tour was a great overview of all the historical sites you can visit in Berlin in 4 hours. Since it is time-bound, dont expect to explore each place in detail. It starts with the Berlin Cathedral, moves on to Museum Island, Humboldt University, Checkpoint Charlie, the remains of the Berlin Wall and ends at the beautifully lit Brandenburg Gate. Chris (the Canadian) was our tour guide, and he was really good at explaining the history and culture of these places. Definitely recommend.

    Our tour guide Jonathan was excellent. He put an interesting perspective on how Berlin’s complicated history has evolved into the city it is today

    First solo city break and went on this tour on my first full day in Berlin. Sam Z was incredibly knowledgeable, showed us the sights in a logical historical sequence. Great tour to know the background - helps when you have a fab tour guide!
