Taylor, the guide, was very knowledgable and passionate about his subject. I found the tour very enjoyable, but there is a lot of walking - especially on a hot day. I learned a lot about the Third Reich.

Our knowledgeable tour guide , Taylor, led us through the sites of the Berlin of the Second World war, leading us to places we never would have found on our own. He gave us the history of each area and presented an unbiased account of the era. I would highly recommend it.
