Taylor from Australia was very good and knowledgeable. The weather was bad but the experience was thoroughly enjoyable in spite of it because of our excellent guide.
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.
Our guide, Mike, was a very enthusiast, and made the trip a really great experience
This tour was extremely helpful in understanding the history and the people's behavior leading up to the Cold War and beyond. Jared was an excellent tour guide and has an amazing amount of knowledge to share.
My view of tours has changed after this tour, and all thanks to our tour guide, JJ!! The tour was very well organized and structured - JJ walked us through the history in a detailed yet concise manner and kept it interesting through the entire duration. This tour is an absolute must for anyone visiting Berlin who wants to gain insight on life during the Cold War time frame.
We very much loved this tour and would highly recommend. My only criticism is that the tour ended at the Stassi Museum, which seemed like an interesting place to visit, but was located 40 minutes by metro outside of the main part of the city so it was difficult to make our way back it was even farther than that from the starting point which was on the western end of the city. Other than that, we enjoyed it a lot. Our mid-way break was at Berlin's oldest surviving beer garden which was a perfect place to break.
Great tour. Our guide Brian was both knowledgeable and entertaining.
Very informative. Did not go to Checkpoint Charlie, so make sure you build that in somewhere else in your itinerary. It only takes a few minutes to see it and get a picture. If you are not already familiar with the bus lines, get there early so a guide can help you get the right ticket.
Our tour guide, Brian, was charismatic, very personable, and clearly knowledgeable about history of the Cold War and the timeframe overall. His wealth of informationthat he shared was captivating and he genuinely encouraged interaction and questions from everyone on the tour. Our family agreed we learned more about Berlin, the SS, the wall, and life in a Berlin during this time than we ever could have accomplished on our own. We can't say enough about how fantastic Brian is as a guide and the tour in general. We would do this tour again ina heart heart- highly recommend!
