“very interesting to learn more about the neighborhood”
Reviewed by Dan from Berlin, Germany on June 3rd, 2013 Enjoyed it very much, in spite of the rain. We got to see and speak with people that our guide had become friends with. There was no high-pressure sales tactics or anything like that, just a walking tour revealing interesting people and stories of this current chapter in the city's history.
The only thing I'd recommend is to more clearly describe the meeting point location.
“Neukolln like you've never experienced before”
Reviewed by Edial from Berlin, Germany on May 27th, 2013 This was a great tour! One of the most interesting ones I have ever done. As someone living in Neukolln for more than 2 years, this tour was even more interesting. Adda is a great guide, and it is a great chance to speak with the people that live in the area. Among other things, we went to visit a mosque, had turkish sweets, and had some very interesting conversations along the way.
I can highly recommend the tour, even though if you are from Berlin. If you're visiting Berlin, this tour will is a great opportunity to learn things about one of the most interesting neighborhoods in Berlin at the moment.
