A tour that certainly covers the main attractions of world war II and the cold war, packed with interesting facts and often hilarious quotes and tails. A side benefit was the information for further visits, advice on when where and how to book particular attractions and relavent museums.
Our guide was impressive both in his knowledge and especially his delivery, a clear speaking American who just belongs in Berlin.
Anyone partaking in this tour should be aware you will walk a good way, wear stout shoes and although there are ample refreshment breaks a drink would be advisable.
Amazing tour... Our tour guide Jonathan was very informative and explained things well. I learnt more about German history in one day than I had throughout my 8 years at high school. If you want a relaxed, friendly, extremely informative tour with lots of history and a side serving of humour then look no further. I would highly recommend to all!
this was a wonderful tour to take on our first full day in Berlin. Our tour guide Polly was excellent and very informative. We saw little know things we never would have found as well as the sights everyone wants to see. Taking this tour first really helped us to plan out the rest of our days in Berlin. Polly was a great guide, very personable, engaging and involved. I would recommend this tour for anyone to take as a first step to make the most of your time in Berlin.
Loved Preston's stories and insights. Really made our visit enjoyable.
Best walking tour ever. Polly was the perfect guide. Very knowledgable, good sense of humour and very easy to transport us to the different time lines that she was explaining. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We absolutely recommended. Thanks Polly you were absolutely brilliant!
The tour was excellent and so was the guide during the 6 hours it lasted.
At the end of the day we ended up having an excellent idea of Berlin, its pass, its issues and its achitecture.
Be in shape as we walked 6 hours.
We enjoyed it!
This was a really well done walking tour of Berlin. We met the guide at 10:30 at an easy to find location. We learned lots about Berlin's history. The guide really took the time to explain certain aspects, both obvious ones that we all want to see Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, etc. but also showed us some things we would never have seen or thought about if we were on our own. Overall I am really glad that I chose this particular tour to get a better understanding of Berlin.
I highly recommend this tour. It shows you a bit of everything while walking around Berlin. Our tour guide Polly was amazing! Very knowledgeable about German History and Politics. The best Tour I have experienced and best Tour Guide.
This was our first visit to Berlin and we were lucky enough to have Polly as our tour guide. From the start, she was welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly. A very interesting and informative tour with a lovely lady.
Alexander was amazing! This tour is well worth the time and money. It seems like a long tour when you are reading the description but well worth every minute of it. We saw so much and the knowledge Alexander had of each site was really great! TIP: take this tour first!! We did this tour our first day in Berlin then went back and spent more time at the sights we wanted to see in more detail the following days. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
umuva United States of ...
Excellent, excellent, excellent. Beautiful warm day. Learned a great deal. Nice pace and saw so much. One of the best walking tours I have taken. Well worth the money.
Our tour guide really made this a great experience. Since most tours cover the same or similar sights, the guide really makes the difference. Thoroughly enjoyed this.
This was one of the best walking tours we have been on our guide was informative and had a great sense of humour his material was well researched and well presented. We saw all we could see in the six hours. We highly recommend this tour
always love these tours,very dependant on the guide who in our case was excellent learnt so much stuff we wouldn't have known anywhere else would recommend to anybody
We had a small group and got to see the major sights of Berlin. Our guide shared numerous historical details and stories that I had previously not known. Got rained on a bit, but the tour was still enjoyable and informative.
Amazing tour of Berlin. Our guide was great. I'd recommend the small-group tour much over one of the larger tours. We went on the 6 hour tour, thinking that it might be a bit too long, but we enjoyed every minute. All of us unanimously agreed that this is the best tour we've been on yet!
Really enjoyed the trip, Alexander was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, time went so quickly!
Superb tour. Polly, our guide, was insightful and clearly actively interested in Berlin past and present. Tour was well paced information was given in a conversational style - no hint of delivery by rote Polly engaged with and responded fully to questions and comments. This was our second Viator tour - the first to Auschwitz was very good, this was even better. Will certainly seek out Viator again - it's a great way to gain an introduction to a city.
Absolutely amazing! Our guide Hollie was so knowledgeable and friendly. I really enjoyed the day - very extensive and interesting. Would definitely recommend!
I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Berlin!! Worth every penny! Paulie was amazing! She had so many interesting facts about the history of Berlin that I would have never known. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking the whole day, ended up being a little more than 6 hours with the breaks, but well worth it!
This was quite a long tour and our guide was amazing. he was both smart and funny. IU have had great luck with your tours and will use your service when I am back in Europe again Thank you
Make sure you go on this tour when in Berlin, it's brilliant! Full of fascinating stories about the city, with buildings to see and places of real interest to visit.
We had a fantastic day. Sam the guide was so informative and passionate about history - really inspiring. Wish I had a history teacher like him at school! I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn about Berlin's history! Thanks so much Sam!
Preston, our tour guide, was brilliant! Its been a month since and I am still thinking about this walk through modern history. Indeed, I believe this was the best tour Ive ever been on. At the start, Preston got to know each one of us then adjusted the walk accordingly pointing out sites that he thought might be significant to each of us. His talk was thorough answering every single question, one time using the web to get the most up-to-date answer. His grasp of modern European history was awesome! For example, outside the Reichstag Building he summarized the events of 1930s in Berlin in a way that brought together years of disparate study for me. Thank you. This tour really made my trip to Berlin. Ill never forget it!
