Excellent tour. Jan was very knowledgeable and we found out some amazing topics during the cold war. Good use of time with going to the locations where things happened.
We went around for over three hours with Jared and it was fantastic! The way he gets the facts accross, the stories, the anecdotes -- the mental reconstruction of what it was like to live in Berlin at the time -- all this being presented around the most impressive surviving landmarks. The last piece of kill zone between Wall sections is particularly sobering, of course. But Jared keeps it all so lively, and even made excellent suggestions for the lunch break!
Impeccable, excellent, exhilirating... I am not making this up, Brian our tour guide was simple phenomenal! He knew every little detail, told us extra stories from A to Z - stories that I'm sure 99 of tour guides don't have the patience to tell in such detail and passion. He made our tour so interesting. This was the best guided tour I've ever taken in all of the cities I've visited. He created such a friendly ambiance among the participants in the tour group that we all became friends. The facts, the stories, the sites we visited with Brian were great and comprehensive, we kinda saw all there is to see! Thank you so much Brian, we had little time and chose this tour and I'm really happy cause you restored my faith in guided tours! Cheers!
We all think we know about the Berlin Wall but this trip really gave us such a greater insight into why, when, how, the impact and what lead to the wall coming down again. Taylor the guide did a great job on getting it all across in a clear and concise manner.
Excellent tour by Barnaby
This was a great experience, not only learning tons about the Cold War, but also seeing a lot of the city. Jared was incredibly knowledge and had a wonderful personality.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Thought it was excellent value for money and I and #39;m sorry can and #39;t remember our guides name (he was Australian born) Felt much more educated on the whole situation of the Cold War.
Unbelievably good tour. This tour exceeded my expectations
This was an interesting tour covering what life was like in East and West Berlin during the Cold War. One aspect we hoped would be covered was the espionage between the East and the West during this time, but very little of that was mentioned. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate and we saw many interesting sights. And he kept us away from the touristy sights i.e., Checkpoint Charlie. We learned a lot and would recommend this tour.
The tour guide Jan was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and can recommend it 100 to others
