Top class. Our guide Nikolai once lived in California and Hollywood's loss is Berlin's gain. Extremely knowledgeable, his humorous and witty commentary kept our interest throughout. Very fair in that he gave both sides of an argument and allowed you make up your mind. Had researched the subject thoroughly which led to stops being longer than they needed to be. This in turn meant an Olympic paced sprint to the next place of interest, but most guides I've encountered suffer from the same problem. Had been told that this walk is famous and it lived up to expectations. A must do if you visit Berlin
A fantastic historical guided tour of the old and new Berlin. Barnaby kept us all well informed and entertained. Thank you.
Loved this tour! My tour guide was Mike and he was so informative and happy! Would highly recommend!
Our guide Phil was awesome! His knowledge of Berlin is amazing! We went to Museum Island and got the history of the museums to include the speeches made by Hitler and Himmler at the Altes Museum. Then down the Unter den Linden for more history. Our tour ended up at the Brandenburg Tor where Phil stayed to answer questions.
The Tour Guide was brilliant with info - a ral insider's view. Lots of walking meant we saw loads of places. Fully recommend it.
We were so impressed by this walk that we also booked the Third Reich Tour for our third day in Berlin. The Highlights Tour was a well balanced tour giving good introduction into differing aspects of the city and its history. Barnaby our guide was highly knowledgeable and good fun - although it was particularly English sense of humour.
Very good and informative tour with an excellent guide Mr.Dietrich
Good tour through the heart of historic Berlin. Knowledgeable guide and good humour from Irish Phil. Highly recommended
Barnaby, our tour guide was top class! Really knowledgable about Berlin history and its people. A great sense of humour added to an appropriate amount of reverence made this tour the most memorable part of our first trip to Berlin. He makes the past come to life and his love for the city is infectious. A brilliant day, thanks Barnaby!!
Very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Thorough insight into Berlin's history, well worth doing.
Brilliant. Guide Nickolai brought Berlin to life. Excellent value.
Our tour guide Marcin, gave a great tour. He covered everything from historical and political topics to the best place to buy beer and tips on how to NOT be overcharged. Great tour and I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour was amazing and I would recommend it. Gives you great insight of Berlin. Our guide was excellent..weather was great too.. I would come back!!
JJ was an excellent guide who took us around all the key sights in Berlin explaining the history with humour and expertise.
I could say that the best part of this tour was being guided around the city to some beautiful locations being told, in brief, but ample detail, about the city, its history, current and past culture, but it's not quite that. I could say that the best part was being told, sometimes in intimate detail, about how dark and yet progressive Berlin's history has been and now is, but again, it wouldn't be that. Or perhaps the sage advice of where to eat, where to visit on our short trip and places to get great, local beer? Not quite.
The best part was the tour guide, JJ. Jam-packed full of charm, cheekiness and humour, he really lifted this tour, and I have been on some where the guide is dull and just reading off a load of facts. JJ is clearly in love with Berlin and whether he was talking passionately about the Brandenburg Gate, the remaining Nazi buildings, the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie all on the tour, plus more or his Irish, ABBA-loving, You're-not-eating-enough-potatoes mother, Caroline O'Leary he's doing a grand job, Mrs. O'Leary, promise!, I not only got a sense of the horror of its past, but also the pleasures of its present all through our magnetic racconteur, JJ.
It is a 4-hour walking tour, but it goes by quickly and there is a coffee break in between. Can't recommend these guys enough.
Best way to orient yourself to city and its history.Phil, our guide was excellent.
Very good value. Would reccomend to anyone.
Maria had an amazing historical knowledge of Berlin and interspersed interesting related anecdotes that made the tour fascinating. She stopped at important historical sites in East Berlin, relating the various historical significances over the generations, while also pointing out other related points of interest. Although our group was 40, Maria's voice was strong enough to make her heard by the group. We wished our stay in Berlin was longer so we could have signed up for additional tours. Maria was great!
The guide I forgot his name now, but he was American/German was extremely informative and just and so much to share with the group.
Really opens your eyes to see what Berlin and Germany went through.
We had an excellent tour guide Barnaby who supplied lots of colorful commentary, including the historical and cultural backdrop for the places we visited. The tour was informative and entertaining.

Absolutely one of the best tours I have ever done. Informative, fun and well worth the money!!!!
Maria was excellent. Engaging, funny, knowledgable. Couldn't be better.
Fantastic introduction to the fascinating history of Berlin. We indeed saw the highlights but we also saw some things we did not expect - the sculpture of the mother cradling her dead son memorial to he futility of war as intensely moving. Taylor was our guide. He mad the history personal and had a really good delivery, as well as great anecdotes which were merely proof of his encyclopaedic knowledge. A great 4 hours! Highly recommended.
Four hours of walking around this beautiful city of Berlin with our guide JJ who was fantastic we were his only other 2 Irish tourists in his group so we got all his good jokes lol. highly recommended and would return to the city again and visit all his recommendations on the museums thank you!
The tour was excellent! Barry was so funny and the tour was enlightening and all the jokes made everyone laugh and kept us all interested. Keep up the good work!
