Morgan was very knowledgeable and the Segway’s were easy to use and an excellent way to get around. We actually were taken on a 3 hour Highlights of Berlin tour, not East Side gallery/Cold War due to others in the group, but very enjoyable regardless

Our castle guide was just great! Charmingly funny ( for me as a native of Basel it was a pleasure ) and very competent. Our driver was great too. Best wishes to both E. RothCueni
