If you want a good alternative to the usual walking tour give this one a try. Instead of looking at places you get to immerse yourself in two inner suburban districts, focusing on the street vibe, street art, culture and ethic mix, as well as using the U-bahn to get around. Our guide, Alex, was knowledgeable about his subject and have numerous witty stories, and some not so witty, to impart to us on our travels. As a recent resident of the Kreuzburg area he gave us the low down on the suburb, its recent history and how people power has had some positive outcomes in persuading the authorities not to do things that the residents don't want to happen.
It was very interesting getting the tour of Berlin. Much more entertaining than just walking sight-seeing to different random sites. I loved people watching in the non tourist areas. The way people used the metro, the little coffee shops, the things they carried and many more characteristics that are different from where I am from.
really interesting tour, the guide Conner was engaging, full of knowledge, and who was obviously passionate about the social and cultural history of this fantastic city. it was hours well spent and I loved it! a must do.....
We loved it. I had zero knowledge and no interest in graffiti prior to that tour, so I feel great having to learn so much about it. Jason was our guide and he did a very good job at showing us around some very interesting parts of town. Very fun guy!
Thank you Alex for the amazing tour! It was great to hear your perspective on Berlin as a local. Loved hearing all the stories behind each neighbourhood. I highly recommend this tour!
Great tour. Very knowledgeable, eloquent guide, Jake. Fascinating details about the city. Thank you.
Amazing tour - Callum was an awesome guide and really brought Berlin's colourful and dynamic history to life. Would highly recommend to those who want to veer away from your standard tourist spots and see how truly diverse Berlin is.
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
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.
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.
The tour provided excellent context for many Berlin neighborhoods, and the guide, Jake, was extremely entertaining, passionate, and informative about the history, art, and culture of the city.
We had a blast on this tour. You have to be open to variations with regards to the program, but the guide was very knowledgable and entertaining.
Great tour! This tour included a great mix of street art, culture and history -- this was a great way to spend 4 hours.
Excellent, interesting and informative. Our guide was Callum, he was very knowledgeable and engaging. He also helped us out afterward showing us where to go out and the best transport options etc. The tour was as described. Best walking tour I've done.
Jason gave a fantasic tour! He was very personable, knowledgeable and interesting! He stayed late and worked until the end helping everyone craft a plan for Friday night fun in Berlin. We loved that he was from the states..and thus had a feel for how we view the world. His explanation of tagging, street art, and youth culture in Berlin was captivating. We highly recommend this tour!
