fascinating. Enjoyed even by those with little interest in history
Kevin was an absolutely outstanding tour guide - a true scholar to be precise. And a gentleman. Working in the tourism and travel industry, the quality of this tour was a cut above, and an obvious passion for our guide.
We did this tour with guide Rick, who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was an excellent tour where we saw things that we would not have found on our own. I would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the history behind the building of the wall and what life was like for east Berliners during that time. It is a fascinating insight into the history of the city at that time.
This tour was amazing. We saw many sights that we would never have been able to see on our own. The tour was four hours, and we used the Berlin metro to get to many of the sites. Our guide, Rick, was exceptionally enthusiastic about this tour he said it was his favourite one. He didn't just show us sites, he personalized the experience, and made us understand what life was like for East Berliners.
The guide (Pip) was realy nice, she knew enough history and exciting facts to make the tour worth the money. So the tour and the guide were good, but the agency Viator is not reliable. On your site you post that the tours are sold-out. This is not the case. Non of the tours were sold out.
Kevin was excellent at explaining the era and the sites, many of them emotionally moving.
If Alex, our guide, were my history teacher, I would have loved history class. I could have listened to him all day. This tour was worth every euro and every minute we were there. I learned so much that I would never have known, or understood if we had tried to do this on our own. The weather outside was really hot, we are old enough to be Alex's parents and were exhausted when it was over. My only recommendation was that we could of taken escalators and elevators and there was a lot of stair climbing.
The walking tour was great! Much better than trying to wing it on our own. I highly recommend this walking tour - fun and very informative.
This tour was so great! we went all over Berlin and our tour guide Rick(I think that was his name....brown hair in a bun) was absolutely wonderful. He has so much knowledge. Definitely recommend this to everyone.
Whatever else anyone does on a break in Berlin - do this tour. Especially if you are interested in the history of the Cold War in Berlin and how it touched people's lives.
