This was our first experience with Viator. We loved the private tour! It is well worth the money. We loved our tour guide.

Out tour guide, JJ was AMAZING. We would have seen the sights on our own but to have JJ share deeper background, before and after photos of historical sights and share parts of Berlin we never would have discovered for ourselves was a treat. We couldn't recommend these tours highly enough!

Guide Yan turned up punctually for the start. He was knowledgeable, witty and humorous. He gave us the option of dropping us off at the pick up point or having an extra 1/2 hr. We chose the extra 1/2 hr. He ensured that we knew how to get back to our pick up point. The tour was informative and entertaining.

For this tour Viatour subcontracts with a company called Insider Tour of Berlin. Because of customization our group of 17 wanted to do, I dealt directly with Insider Tour's John O'Leary. I could not have had a better experience. At short notice our morning walking tour was augmented with an afternoon coach tour. Every aspect of the tours was expertly and professionally attended to. Our guides were Heiko, David and Nick. Each of them was personable, engaging, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. If you only have one day to get a sense of the core history and historical sites of Berlin, this is the tour to take.

I always highly recommend private tours, whether they be walking or otherwise. This tour further reiterated this as we had an exceptional experience in touring Berlin. This was so much in part thanks to JJ, our amazing tour guide. While I have done many tours, I found JJ to be amongst the top of the guides that I have had with an education in history and a fantastic and sometimes wonderfully humorous touring method.

In roughly four hours, JJ took us all over Berlin and broke down an intense and expansive history of Berlin/Germany into understandable and memorable terms. He was exquisite at matching sightseeing with information retention and by the end of our tour, I felt I had seen everything I needed to see within Berlin. I would highly recommend this as a starter for anyone's trip to Berlin you will want time afterwards to dive deeper into certain buildings, or to visit certain museums - all of which JJ recommended or for anyone who does not have long in Berlin but wants to get a strong feel for the city and to view it's major attractions and even some off the beaten path. If you do purchase this tour, call the tour company who seem to be fantastic and ask if JJ is available - you won't regret it.

Note that we did walk about 11km so for anyone with mobility issues, I would use caution even though JJ was more than wonderful in letting us go at our own pace.

The guide was exceptional. Knew a lot of information both historical and current regarding the exhibits in all the museums. Made great recommendations. The tour hit all the major spots such as museum island, hitler's bunker, checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Wall, etc.

Our guide Jamie was great! We told him places we would like to see and he incorporated them into our schedule. Very friendly and accommodating to us all and a pleasure to be with. Professional but fun and informative. Definitely use this guide for your tour of Berlin!

We had a fantastic private walking tour with Mike. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept us interested and engaged the whole time. There is so much incredible history in Berlin, and this was the perfect way to learn about it and experience the destination. Highly recommended!

Great tour with John O. We covered all the major sites and other areas of interest in the 4 hour tour and John was very knowledgeable about the historical aspects of Berlin as well as providing us with some quirky insights. The private tour allowed us to digress at times and freely ask questions rather than spending the time chasing a large group of other tourists.

Nick Jackson is fabulously well informed, holds and communicates a balanced opinion and has an engaging style of delivery which allowed him to access and inspire each member of our party, from age 16 through to 53, and each of whom varied in areas of interest and prior knowledge. The 2 tours he conducted for us (Private Walking Tour of predominantly World War 2 Berlin) and SachsenHausen Concentration Camp were stimulating and informative, there was no area upon which he did not hold informed knowledge, having read widely over many years. He was never in a rush, allowing us to pace the tours at any stage, and on both days over-ran the prescribed tours by adding in extra attractions at both our and his behest. He was a pleasure to 'travel' with and I would recommend him to all.

Lucas was amazing. As a history teacher he was able to give us all information and answer our difficult questions. Just fabulous we should have booked a 6 hour tour with him.

Our tour guide (Nick) was fantastic - very entertaining and definitely knew his history. 4 hours didn't seem long enough to get to all of the highlights, but it was a great introduction to Berlin. The only downside was that it was pretty chilly and snowy that day so we were very grateful for the hot chocolate break!! Would definitely do this again, well worth the money!
