Excellent tour! Our guide Bastian was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and open to all kinds of questions, culinary or cultural. Can't speak highly enough of him and his tour - well worth your time and money if you're in Berlin for a few days.

Everything about this tour was superb! Very easy to book, incredibly good value and our guide, Barnaby, was interesting, knowledgeable and funny! And at 6 foot 9 we were never going to lose him...! I would thoroughly recommend this walk and if you're in Berlin for a few days do it early on in your trip. You get some great information about places to visit and also not to visit!
