Fantastic. The kids loved it. Like a personal walking tour with a professor. We’ve been to Berlin before, but this was our first tour. And wow, did we learn about all of the things we’d previously just walked by. Great experience, thank you to Michael!

We had a fantastic time. It was educational and entertaining. Mr. Taylor was fantastic in his presentation and timing and took great care with my mother, who needs to stop often to rest. We absolutely loved it and would recommend him to anyone wanting a full experience in historical Berlin.
