Wow! This is one of the best walking tours I have ever taken! Finn really knows his stuff! We even got a bonus of this tour: by taking us on the bus, we drove by several different buildings that he discussed as well as several other "non-gay" sites. The gay part of the tour was amazing; taking us back through the gay history of Berlin all way to the mid 1700's - DO NOT miss this tour if you are in Berlin! I would give it 10 starts if I could!! Highly recommended!!

Great tour, perfect guide! Probably the museum should not be mentioned in the program. I went there because i wanted to, but by one side i believe the tour is richer per se. I was the only one interested to see the museum also.


3 star rating: Worth doing October 2015

After reading the book Gay Berlin, I felt the tour was not worth the money. However, with that being said, anyone who hasn't read the book would definitely get a lot out of the tour. Our guide Finn, was very knowledgeable and carried around and iPad to show reference of persons or original places as we went along the tour.
