We had a superb time with Walid!
He is an amazing guide on this tour as he detailed the stories behind each historical places, buildings,streets. He was able to explain it beautifully as if we were back in time especially the start and fall of the Berlin Wall.
It's been the most enjoyable and knowledgeable trip we had, it is highly recommended!
Did this tour with my OH and 12 year old son on our last full day in Berlin. Tour was well paced and very interesting. Barnaby, a Brit, from Insider Tour was a fantastic guide who was genuinely passionate about the subject matter and kept the tour interesting with anecdotes and humour, which is much needed when discussing the Cold War! The pace of the tour was good and gave us the chance to see more of Berlin using the trams and trains. The only thing that could have made the tour better was a departure point nearer to us, as we travelled to Zoological Garten from Hackerscher Markt only to go return to Freidrikstrasse to start the tour. Highly recommended.
A very interesting tour, that involves walking, trains and trams. The tour guide was a passionate person when shareing his views however, when we came to the end it was a bit baffling on why the tour ended up where we did, maybe I missed something, not sure??
Don't let the picture fool you, the tour goes now where near Check Point Charlie, so you will have to find another one for this.
I had Mike as a guide, and he was excellent. He has studied History and maintains an interest that really adds life to the tour. He took us to places normally not included on tours, and also skipped Checkpoint Charlie as there was a much better location to tell the story of crossing from West to East.
I highly recommend the tour, they were well organized and we didn’t waste a lot of time getting going, and we actually went longer than expected because of all the questions.
They don’t mention in the ad that you will need an all day transit pass, as we took several trains and trams during the tour.
It was a bad day when we went on the tour because it was raining and it was windy and cold. The tour guide Taylor told us where to buy umbrellas and train tickets for the tour. He is Australian and spoke perfect English so it was great. But there was quite a lot of walking to do and I was a little disappointed that it did not include Checkpoint Charlie and the real Berlin wall in the tour. Also the place where we were to meet, Zoological Gardens station near McDonald's was quite hard to find, we had to ask for directions.
An excellent 4 hour Cold War walking tour. Our guide, Ronan, was very informative around the subject and made the tour both enjoyable and humourous. We were a group of 4 people, including two 16 year olds, studying the cold war as part of their upcoming exams and it was an excellent tour to bring the subject to life, especially around the wall and what life was like for many East Berliners during that time
Rohan took us to some key places and explained their significance in such a way it made history come to life. The personal stories of people who were separated from their families when the wall went up, to a border guard who defected famous photo capturing that very moment all made the tour so insightful. Ronan used the right combination of facts with humour to lighten the mood somewhat. I would highly recommend this tour as the history is so recent and important.
