This was an interesting tour covering what life was like in East and West Berlin during the Cold War. One aspect we hoped would be covered was the espionage between the East and the West during this time, but very little of that was mentioned. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate and we saw many interesting sights. And he kept us away from the touristy sights i.e., Checkpoint Charlie. We learned a lot and would recommend this tour.
The tour guide Jan was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and can recommend it 100 to others
Loved it! Our tour guide was Ashleigh, and she was fantastic! She knew the history and was filled with extra little stories. She even had a personal connection that was interesting to hear about. I definitely recommend this tour.

Phenomenal. Barnaby was perfect. Enjoyed the entire tour start to finish.
Jamie was able to recount the history of war torn Berlin superbly well, taking us right from 1945 through to 1989 showing us some fascinating landmarks along the way, that without a guide you would no doubt miss. Highly recommended in helping to sort through the enormously complicated politics of Cold War Berlin.
Highly recommended and the best 12 euros I spent in Berlin. If you have an interest in the Cold War or recent German history, this is the one for you.
Our Guide, Barnaby, supplemented the tour high points with anecdotes and made it even more informative.
Brilliant tour. Our guide was punctual and made sure we were well organised. He was attentive and made sure that everyone in the group heard the information he was giving and understood the stories he was telling. When we had a small glitch with opening hours for a venue he had some great historic videos he showed us on his iPad which filled in the time and made the trip even more alive. A really good tour and fully recommended
Fantastic tour! Our guide Jamie told a fascinating and in-depth story that was easy to follow and engaging. Would definitely recommend if you've got an interest in history.
I learned so much on this tour. I loved every minute of it. If you are interested in the Cold War this is definitely the tour for you. You can't get anything better and the price is great!
The Cold war Walking Tour of Berlin was fantastic! I can honestly say, it was the best tour we have ever been on. It took in all the key sites of the Cold War, and more. Our tour guide John J.J. was fantastic, his knowledge of Berlin and the Cold War was huge, and he was great fun and very helpful.
This tour is a must when visiting Berlin.
Superb insight into the Cold War from Barnaby. Everything from the main mechanics that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall through to the more quirky things that the Cold War caused including a complete lack of bananas in November 1989.
This tour was full of amazing facts and figures that even cold war history enthusiasts may not know. Tour guide Taylor was great. Funny, approachable and stayed behind to guide people to where they wanted to go once the tour has finished.
Great tour to take if you want to see the important sites of the Cold War era in Berlin. The tour is four hours long and includes a lunch break.
Great tour! Insight that only real berliners have. I highly recommend it for those who want to know how the life was for east berliners under the soviet regime AND afterwards. Mike was entertainging and kept it fresh during the four hours, which went by really quick! . See and understand the details that otherwise might get missed.- Thanks Mike and the whole crew.-
Excellent tour, I can only recommend for everybody who wants to learn about one of the darkest decades of the European modern history. Our tour guide, unfortunately I do not remember his name, was German born, American raised person who was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Europe, including East Germany GDR Berlin and the former communist countries and teh Cold War era. Thank you.
A great tour - delivered on our expectations and more. Michael was an excellent, eloquent guide answering all questions and his delivery and style made this a fun and informative tour.
With a great guide, Jessie who was filled with a wealth of information, this was a fantastic way to see many of the city's East/West sites and take in the history of the wars and conflicts that took place in both Berlin and Germany. Highly recommend!
Our guide Jan was informative and humorous and, bless him, got us out of trouble with a tram inspector after we had purchased the wrong ticket. Jan showed us everything of importance and provided interesting commentary along the way. He was patient and allowed the group the time to take photos. We didn't miss a thing! This was a great tour and well worth the money.
See my review on the Final Days of WWII. Absolutely brought the WWII times to life for all of us.
