Informative, fun, educational walking tour!
Diana_B, Nov 2022
Our guide was Cieran, incredibly knowledgeable, he led the tour in a way that was educational and easy to understand, whilst delivering it all with a great sense of humour. It was over 3 hours and a fair amount of walking, so wear comfortable shoes, it did include a 15 mins coffee/comfort break. You cover a lot from an overview perspective, however we were then able to go back to the places we were really interested in and spend more time there. Would definitely recommend.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Dear Diana_B, Thank you for reviewing our Explore Berlin tour. Ciarán is a great guide and we are lucky to have him on our team. We hope that this tur helps you better 'understand' Berlin! Thank you for touring with us. Kind regards, Gerard
Brilliant tour for all to do.
Cathy_K, Oct 2022
The history of Berlin is extraordinary and we learned much on the city walking tour with Paul. From the University where books were burnt to the site of the bunker, checkpoint Charlie and remnants of the Berlin Wall and the memorial to Jews killed by National Socialism this is a tour everyone should do. If we don’t learn the lessons of history we will repeat them.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Dear Cathy_K, Thank you for your kind review of our Explore Berlin tour with Paul. Having a great guide to give those insights at all those iconic sites is invaluable. Here's wishing you many more great tours in the future. Kind regrads, Gerard
