Our guide Scottish guy whose name i sadly have forgotten was excellent! Very knowledgeable, full of interest and anecdotes and really interesting. I would totally recommend the tour. Enough history to keep my history buff husband happy but accessible to me, whose knowledge was poor before the trip. Really brought the whole place to life and explained things we had wondered about previously. Lots of our questions answered and more .It was freezing cold, so wrap up warm and wear sensible footwear.
A very worthwhile and interesting tour into Berlin's history. Myself and partner thoroughly enjoyed the tour by Caroline who was extremely informative and clearly very knowledgeable and delivered it in a personal way. However, we were a bit confused as to why we met at Zoological Gardens?? When most of the tour was in East Mitte. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Loved this tour. Very interesting. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly.
First rate tour, not to be missed. Very knowledgeable and enthusiatic guide (even in the cold and rain).
Alex the American tour guide was a wealth of information and insight and the tour was both fascinating, educational and thought provoking and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Finn our guide was extremely knowledgable of the subject. We had quite a large group but he took the time to answer all our questions. He took us to see things that you would not of noticed if you had walked round Berlin on your own. The tour was due to last only three hours but in the end was over five, this was a bonus as you felt you weren't rushed from one place to another and was given time to appreciate what you were being shown and take full advantage of Finns knowledge. He also gave great tips on other things to do in Berlin but wasn't a pushy sales man. He is an asset to the tour company he works for. Just remember to take food and drink on the tour.
Our guide, Dennis, was brilliant. he showed us so much and explained the story behind everything we saw. He answered all and any questions and was instructive and amusing. We would highly recommend him.
Great day with Finn! Learned so much about Berlin and it's darker days. I loved the introduction round at the beginning it was a great icebreaker and got people from different nations communicating with one another during the tour.Thanks for the book tip Finn, grey wolf is a good read
This tour was one of the best we have taken. Nicely paced and hitting on so many fascinating places. Our guide Rick couldn't have been better. He was extremely knowledgeable and his passion for what he was doing was very obvious that he inspired all those on the tour to ask more questions and as such we all learned much more then if it had been a prerecorded tour. We can not recommend this tour enough.
5 stars easily.
Only one criticism. The meeting point should be near the first stop on the tour instead of having to meet at another location far away. It was too time consuming going to one place then having to get on the underground to go to another place several stops and one transfer away to begin the tour. In our case the tour actually began only two blocks from where we started before taking the subway to the meeting point near the zoo.
Fascinating tour. I took this tour on my 5th day in Berlin after a lot of exploring on my own, so I wondered how much I would get out of it. The answer was: a LOT. So much I didn't know. Rick was very knowledgeable, and the tour was pretty comprehensive for a half day. Rick was also very informative about the whole issue of how Germany addresses its Nazi past and how it educates its young people, and how this issue has evolved over the decades. So, all in all, totally worthwhile.
Dennis was without doubt the best tour guide I have ever had ....a must !!! But ask for Dennis
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our Guide Kevin was full of information and related his knwoledge with clarity.
