This was a fantastic tour, our guide Jarred was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Berlin, from its origins to modern events. The tour commenced at Gendarmenmarkt and concluded at the Brandenburg Gate. Jarred did a fantastic job of weaving a story throughout the tour and pulling together all the facts as it developed.
I took this tour two days before the 25th anniversary of the wall coming down, when we got the the Holocaust Memorial there were large screens displaying events of the final hours before and after the wall came down, the atmosphere was amazing.
Most ‘half day’ tours I have been on, have lasted around 2hours, this was genuinely a half day tour. However as Berlin is a reasonably flat city it was not tiring at all.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone, it is one of the best walking tours I have ever been on.
This was a great tour of the islands with a knowledgeable guide showing us the highlights. In Murano we were taken to a glass making factory and shown the amazing skills of the glass making masters, really they are artists. From their we moved on to Burano, this personally was my favourite island of the three and somewhere I would like to visit again given the chance.
Especially given the price I cannot praise this tour enough for its value. It was a great way to spend a half day.
As a first time visitor I was looking for a tour to provide me with a background and some history of Venice. This tour fitted the bill absolutely perfectly.
The tour was split in two elements, first of all an hour boat trip on a taxi boat around the north part of the island and Grand Canal. Our guide Christina, for this section was engaging and very informative.
The second part of the tour was a two hour walking section lead by Barbara; a detailed description of the square and St Marks Basilica was provided, inside the basilica we were taken upstairs to the balcony area to see the piazza in all its glory. After the basilica we were taken on a walk up to the Rialto area. Along the way were provided with a commentary on all the important and interesting buildings and how Venice has changed over the centuries.
I have joined other tours managed by Dark Rome (as this one is) and found their guides to be extremely informative, as mentioned above, both guides were excellent and really helped make this a fantastic tour.
