This was fantastic. Great guide, vey cheap and easy to find. English guy living in Berlin, so no accent issues. Also did the concentration camp trip with the same organisation (remember to bring lunch!) which was awesome, but the Third Reich trip covered much of what the introductory one did. Highly recommend for when you first arrive in the city.

My wife and I thought that our guide was excellent. The tour was an excellent introduction to Berlin and our guide infused the experience with insights and historical information.

Perfect for those who are short of time or lack the patience to do their own research on the historical significance of key sites. The guide, Matti, was very informative and professional.

This was an excellent start to exploring Berlin, unfortunately we took the tour on our last day. It left us wanting to further explore many of the venues. Our tour guide was great! He was knowledgable and humorous. I would highly recommend this tour, but do it at the beginning of your Berlin adventure - then you have time to revisit the sites you wish to explore further.

Excellent walking tour. The guide had so much knowledge about the venues it made the tour extremely worth while. She also talked about the best sight to see and what was bot the best. Recommend this tour highly

Very informative - it was a good way of getting yourself oriented to the city and see all the major sight seeing points. Our guide was energetic, knowledgeable and took efforts to explain all the queries on thie vast topic. A watch out for old people (or people with walking issue) - there is lot of walking involved and this needs to be taken into account while booking this tour.

Matti did an excellent job showing the specific sights and filling in interesting human interests details that could not typically be found in a history tour.

Great walking tour and Mike was a very good guide. He knew his stuff, English was his first language. He has lived in Germany for several years so knew what he was doing. Very good and interesting.

Great starter to a Berlin visit.
The guide did a fantastic job in showing most of the major sites which then allowed you to choose which sites you wanted to explore fuyher.
Much better than hop on hop off tours as you could ask questions about what site you were at.

Berlin is a beautiful city and we certainly got to see a lot of it during our walking tour! Our guide (Mike, I believe) was very informative, humorous and charismatic, and he was very passionate about the city too, which was great. He led us to all the interesting spots and explained its history and meaning, as well as given us ideas on how we can spend the rest of our time in Berlin, pointing out good restaurant locations, shopping areas and general places to check out.
The walk was a tiring one - 4 hours and we had to struggle against the 30 degree celcius heat.
My only complaint was that our rest time was a bit short - we got about 20 minutes. Would've been nice to have been able to sit down, get a quick bite to eat and visit (and line up at) the restrooms before continuing.

Our guide Ashleigh was fantastic and really knew the history and information of Berlin. She delivered it in an excellent manor and was very friendly and our little girl took to her right off.

Thoroughly recommend this tour. Jessica was fantastic, much detail and made the day very informative. A must do tour! There is a lot of walking involved but the pace and frequent stops makes this manageable.
