It was a great tour. Very private because I was the only participant I learned a lot of new things about the history of Berlin. The city guide was able to convey it well and you could feel his own enthusiasm when he talked about the history. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see Berlin from a different angle and would like to get impressions that you might not get
