Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Our guide Micheal was brilliant. Really was a fantastic way to see the city as we only had two full days there. We did it on our first day and it meant that we knew exactly where we wanted go back to or visit the next day. Michael really brought the history alive as we walked.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This was a fantastic tour because Nick was extremely knowledgeable and we were able to get up close and personal with many of the sites of Berlin. We learned about the history of Berlin in this well paced walking tour. It exceeded our expectations and will be retained in our memories for a long time.
