Andrian was a patient tourist guide. 4 hours walking from the East to the West in Berlin should be enough exercise and experience for someone, who likes activities. Even when I was in the tour with my little son 2years old. That and #39;s fit very well for relaxing and take a coffee.

This was a fantastic tour - a great guide Brian who was very friendly and very knowledgeable and informative - he really brought the sights we were seeing to life and also put them into perspective. We saw so much in one afternoon and it was a really good way to help us decide what we wanted to go back and see more of the following day - ideal when you only have a 3 day trip. There was obviously! a lot of walking involved but the pace was fine. I can highly recommend this tour and it was excellent value for money.
