Excellent tour. Brian, our tour guide was very knowledgeable, informative and humorous and provided a great history lesson during the walk. He encouraged the group to ask questions and gave some good suggestions for other sites to visit at the end of the tour. He assisted those who wanted to head in different directions at the end of the tour.

This tour was expertly done. History has never been more engaging and entertaining. Our guide, dressed to reflect East Germany behind the Wall, effortlessly took us through the city's history and made it engaging. My only regret is that we weren't able to spend another day with him.

This walking tour was simply brilliant! Brian led it and I would have paid to watch him perform he was so entertaining, informative and likeable that you couldnt not enjoy the tour. We learnt so much and took his tips on board - we went to the Topographie des Terrors afterwards and it was excellent. This tour a highlight of our trip and enabled us to plan the rest of our stay in wonderful Berlin. Thanks Viator and thank you Brian!
