Our first time using viator - highly recommend it. The Berlin Original Walking Tours use guides who are very knowledgeable (thank you Caroline who did our third reich tour). Will highly recommend this tour and the Sachenhausen Concentration Camp tour.
Excellent tour. Mort our guide was excellent so knowledgeable made it all so interesting. A must if you love your history.
Very informative. Kevin from England was a great guide. Showed us everything we wanted to see! And in 100 degree weather. He did a great job!
I enjoyed this tour immensely. The guide was very knowledgeable; willing to take time to explain things; took questions without reservation and did so with good humor.
This was the best tour that I went on in Germany. Denis was an incredible storyteller and an amazing guide. I truly was enthralled by his amazing dictation of German history. I would highly endorse this tour and I feel that not only was it a great tour but a moral imperative to experience. So awesome!
This tour was amazing. Our guide Dennis was very knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting. I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour visits many of same places that the Discover Berlin half day walking tour also covers. However it is a completely different narration. Rather than the humorous and fun tour, you are given a highly detailed darker history. Anyone who is into WWII history would probably love this tour so if you are aiming for that, do this. Otherwise, if you just want a fun and quick way to see the town, then probably the Discover Berlin walking tour is more for you. But unless you want to see the same land marks twice, you probably don't need to do both of these.
David was our tour guide. I enjoyed his presentation and how he tied everything together for us. He was open and friendly and funny at times, and very knowledgeable. It made all the difference to my understanding of German history. I swear, these tour guides provide a valuable knowledge base to understand what we are seeing in Berlin. If you wonder if a tour guide matters, then trust me. It does. It is worth every penny. Good job, David.
Crazy good tour! Our guide Finn was very very good. If you have time this is a great way to spend a day in Berlin and learn some history.
Absolutely brilliant tour with a German History graduate as a guide. What more could one want! Every question was answered with a historians precision to detail and authority.
I recommend this very highly
Excellant!!! value for money. Mort our guide was very good,and it was evident that he had a genuine understanding of the history of the city, this came over in his presentation.,We will certainly be recommending the tour to others. for the trip. The tour was much more than we expected.The information was good quality and given in a very professional way and to a high standard.
This tour was a little over two hours long. Ryan, our tour guide, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We saw many sites related to the Third Reich such as the former site of Hitler's Bunker and Reich Chancellery, the Air Ministry, the site of the Propaganda Ministry, a Soviet Memorial, the Reich Stag and Topography of Terror Museum, site of the Gestapo Headquarters.
Brilliant tour! Opened my eyes to Nazi Germany and the tour guide Jonny was excellent and very funny!
Our guide was perfect. Sufficient knowledge of the period and capable
Of explaining it so that all understood. Reminder there is sufficient walking --wear good shoes and be prepared to walk a
A day well
I had been to Berlin on 5 previous occasions; I was there before the wall came down and visited the eastern sector, all very intimidating. I was there when the wall came down and last visited in 1991. I served with the British Army for 41 years and visited the city then. On my previous visits most of the Reich locations were either in the east or around the wall and were inaccessible, also during my previous visits all planning had to be done before you left home, there being no Google so you could not plan on the march as people do now. I saw this tour advertised and went for it. The guide was young but very well informed on his subject. He guided us through the Reich sites with detailed explanations of how the Nazis came to Berlin from Munich and supported many of the locations we visited with pre-wartime photos so we could see how the sites looked then. We also visited some of the newer memorial to Nazi victims. Some of the sites the guide was able to take us to I would never have known about, an example is Mohrenstraße on the Berlin U-Bahn. This station is across the Road from Hiller's Chancellery and is furnished with a red marble which by coincidence (or maybe not) is furnished with the same type and colour of marble that furnished Hitler's abode. The German government say it is from elsewhere, at war’s end with rebuilding needed and a ready supply of good marble in the ruins across the road I am inclined to believe the guide's version. The tour ended in Niederkirchnerstraße which during the Nazi era was called Prinz-Albrecht-Straße and located HQ Gestapo and SS. There is an exposed area of the underground chambers of the Gestapo HQ where it is left to the imagination what happened there. It is the site of the Topography of Terror which covers the whole Nazi era. There is a section of the original wall there as well. The tour was excellent, the guide was superb and well informed and I would strongly recommend this to anyone. Phil
