  • Our guide Taylor was exceptional he was able to give us a great overview of the city and all its history and customized it to our desires. The three hours were plenty of time to walk to all the sights that we wanted to see.

A great way to see the highlights of such an amazing and clean city.

  • Barry was wonderful! Not only did he take me on a really interesting tour - to all the places I wanted to see - but he helped me with getting my tickets for the S-bahn so that I could visit the Wannsee Villa that afternoon, and find my way to the Dresden Tour I took the next day, AND have my ticket for the bus to the airport for the day after. Barry was terrific!! Can't rave enough!!
