Loved it! A wonderful different look at Berlin. Particularly with Jake!
Loved this tour- the guide was really informative and definitely had a great knowledge of some of the more obscure facts about the history of the city. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to see a different perspective of Berlin than what a traditional tour offers.
Jason was an intelligent and articulate guide leading us through fascinating areas if Berlin.
This was a very enjoyable tour.
Imogen our tour guide was excellent.
This tour was a lot different to the mainstream tour we did yesterday and because our guide had a lot less to work with, it made her job even more impressive.
My wife and I highly recommend this tour to other travellers.
The tour was awesome. Liam was out tour guide and he was really informative and attentive. This tour is kot your typical touristy tour, you get to explore the city like a true berliner. Highly recommended
Jake, our guide, was great!
The tour was great. Calum was the guide, and he was very interesting and knowledgeable. Even though I was staying in the Prenzlauer Berg area, he pointed out many things I was not aware of. Enjoyed stopping at the Turkish market in Kreuzberg for our lunch stop. All is all, I very much enjoyed the tour, and highly recommend it.
However, it was strange that they did not have my name when I arrived for the tour. Also, your confirmation e mail should contain the meeting place as well as the time even though it is on the voucher. I spent 15 minutes figuring out where at the TV Tower Platz we were supposed to meet.
Alex was a phenomenal guide. Very knowledgeable and informative. This tour gives you info you wouldn't know as a tourist. We had time to stop for lunch, a local street market and got a great local scoop of the hidden gems of Berlin. This is the only tour you should bother going on in Berlin.
This tour was amazing!
The tour was unexpected - a lot like a conversation rather than a mechanical routine. The guide was obviously very knowledgeable and into the scene which gave it authenticity. I really liked it - well worth the four hours. Take the time.
