Nice walking tour with lots of interesting information shared.
My husband is a WWII buff and said we didn’t need a tour. I booked it anyway. BEST DECISION EVER!!! I’m not sure if it was the tour itself or the guide. I think it was how the two worked symbiotically was the key. Nickoli, our guide, was nothing short of amazing. He blended the politics and history of each part of the tour with sensitivity and passion. All we kept thinking the next day was we wished we had him as a private guide all over this fantastic city. For reference, we had our kids of 9 and 18 with us.
Barnaby took us on an excellent walking tour of Berlin. He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and history of the various areas of Berlin. He kept everyone entertained and even managed to catch the teenagers attention. The one negative that I had was with the tour company procedure of meeting up. There was no signage, just a lot of people milling about. It took a lot of asking the wrong people to get directed to the right person to check in with and be put into the correct grouping.
I recommend this tour to everybody who visits Berlin for the 1st (or even 2nd or 3rd time). We had wonderful 4 hours exploring interesting places and hearing fascinating stories about the history, people, everyday life, etc. Our guide Mike was excellent, it was a pleasure to have a tour with him. He also added some personal things to this tour, such as sharing his own experience or jokes. The tour lasted 4 hours, but we had a break in between, and although it was +32 degrees outside, our guide always took care of every guest by offering a sunscreen, or making the stops in the shade. Thank you! When I go to Berlin again, I will definitely book another tour with you!
Canno recommend this tour highly enough if you want to see and learn about this city and it's history. They do not try and hide discussion about the monster that once ruled here, but they do not glory him in any way either.
Our guide was Brian and he was GREAT
Amazing tour. Our group was lucky to have this Scottish guide who was absolutely amazing. If I ever come back to Berlin, I will make sure to book another tour with this guy.
ps.: considering that the tour itself is pretty affordable, I think anyone should tip the tour guide :-
An absolute must while in Berlin. Our guide James was excellent with a huge knowledge he shared with us in an accessible, easy to understand way. He held our interest throughout the entire day and we absolutely loved this tour
