It was a bad day when we went on the tour because it was raining and it was windy and cold. The tour guide Taylor told us where to buy umbrellas and train tickets for the tour. He is Australian and spoke perfect English so it was great. But there was quite a lot of walking to do and I was a little disappointed that it did not include Checkpoint Charlie and the real Berlin wall in the tour. Also the place where we were to meet, Zoological Gardens station near McDonald's was quite hard to find, we had to ask for directions.
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.
