Barnaby was a great guide - he really brought Berlin alive for us. We haven't stopped talking about it since. So knowledgable but fun, pitched it just right for the family 1 20 year old, 1 17 year old and two slightly older parents. I really loved Berlin and this tour was no small part of the cause of that.

Forrest Holmes was the best guide I have ever had, and I have been on many guided tours. He knew instinctively which sights would appeal most to my son and I. Mr. Holms' knowledge of German History and Berlin was immense, and his ability to bring history to life was amazing! We would highly recommend this tour and tour guide!

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.

He knew Berlin and its history in minute detail and really brought it all to life. His quick wit and humor was a very pleasant addition to the tour. Made the history lessons that much more enjoyable especially for our two boys.
