Our four hour Segway tour of Berlin was awesome. We really enjoyed the great mix of fun and interesting sights and history. Our tour guide was Marriette and she was really first class - looked after us 'Segway newbies' really well (after only 5 or 10 minutes practice everyone of our group was relaxed and confident using Segways). My wife and I would highly recommend this particular tour of Berlin. Marriette, Wallid and the crew were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable about Berlin. Go for it!!
Fabulous tour of the city of Berlin. Liked the interesting facts the guide told us about the Berlin wall.
Really enjoyed our walking tour with Ryan. He was very knowledgeable and enertaining. I sould have given this tour 5 stars if we had been able to stop at each place and have a look and take some photos rather than listen to the information and move right on. Disappointing that when we got to Wall, we stood at the top heard some info and then moved on without the opportunity to walk alonfpg it, take photos etc. this was ur only day in Berlin and were not able to come back to these places for a better look.
Really excellent tour. Started on time and took in most of the popular tourist sights and gave directions to others not visited. The guide (Matti) was very good, spoke perfect English and gave us some very interesting snippets of information about the sights we were seeing and life in East Germany before the wall came down.
We booked to take this tour on our first afternoon in Berlin so that we could identify the places we wanted to go back to see in more detail. The tour was perfect for this and each time we saw something for the second time we recalled something that Matti had told us about the location.
The tour was excellent value for money so we gave a good tip to the guide.
The ride gives an incredible insight into this city, densely layered with such rich and intense history on every corner and beneath every cobblestone, from Gendarmenmarkt Cathedrals in the Huguenot French quarter to Checkpoint Charlie and one of the last remaining sections of the wall. The highlight for me is our ride through Tiergarten, past the Berlin Zoo and a lunch break at the gorgeous Schluesen Kreug, along the canal next to one of the locks. We pass the angel of victory, and head back into the city via the Reichstag, where our group poses for a commemorative wave... A great way to experience Berlin, especially for those with limited time!
Unfortunately didn't actually end up doing this tour as we couldn't find the place! I think the directions need to be more precise as Alexanderplatz is absolutely huge! If it had something in the directions like near the TV-Tower it would've been much easier to find!! Only happened to stumble upon it by chance as it is very well hidden! Ended up swapping this tour for the All Berlin Bike Tour which my sister and I thoroughly enjoyed!!Our tour guide Lauren was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable about German history as she had a degree in the field!! Take as many photos as possible!!!Brandenburg Gate is amazing! Also I would suggest being at the back of the group during the tour as you get a free piece of the Berlin Wall and a beer after!!Just some friendly advice!! Well worth it!
An absolutely first class tour, our tour guide put her heart and soul into it and shared her experience of being a young girl of 10 in East Berlin when the Berlin wall came down. Her History degrees gave her an ability to put Germany's history into a world context. She had a remarkably unbiased and fair view of Germany before, during and after the Second World War. My only complaint is that the Viator web site did not make it clear that the trip started in East Berlin and not West Berlin.
Very good tour and you will get lots of information out of it. However, you better wear you're running shoes! You will walk fast, very fast at times. The guide didn't even give us much of a chance to take photos and when we did he looked like he didn't like it much! I do have to say it was cold and snowing at the time maybe that is why but it was a fast based tour. If you have young children under 8 or if you have difficulties walking fast don't take that tour. You will be given a short break half way into the walking tour. If you don't mind fast walking and rushing the photo moments this was one of the best walking tours and full of great info about Berlin and the wall.
Tour was great. You see a lot of good sights, and it's a fun day. It doesn't spend too much time at the wall, but gives you a feel of the city and what they went through. Excellent.
