Excellent! Money well spent! Brian was our guide par excellence. I had my two daughters with me, one of whom is a sophomore in high school. Brian made history come alive. We learned facts and we saw where history happened but in a way that school books can not compare.

Our tour guide was Barnaby. He was awesome! He drew pictures in the dirt to explain how Berlin was actually divided up. He kept the group close and his height definitely made him easy to find in a crowded area. He answered all questions exhibiting his great knowledge of the city. Barnaby also had a marvelous sense of humor - which was quite refreshing. And, being of German descent, I totally understood why the Germans have numbered their Linden trees!!
