What people are saying about Berlin

We loved our guide Asaf! He made the tour fun, would joke around and talk with us when walking to the different locations and helped accommodate the tour for our grandfather when he got cold and needed to stand in the sun. He even found us a shop that sold hot chocolate during the tour! He made the experience great and taught us things that tv, documentaries and school never did.

The breakfast tasted very good, it was simple, but tasty, bread, rolls, dollop of butter, jam, honey, 2x sausage, 2x cheese and some fruit. Each additional ingredient such as B. scrambled eggs etc. you have to pay extra. All drinks, including coffee, are not included in the booking price and must be paid for separately. But, it was nice to turn around Berlin over breakfast.

The guide Jamie was superb! He shared a lot of historical facts about the spots we visited and made the entire tour incredibly entertaining. I absolutely recommend the tour to all those who love to learn how the past impacts our present.

Experience was very straightforward and seamless, especially with the GetYourGuide app. Made it handy to present tickets at every section of the exhibition we were entering. Would 110% recommend.

Great tour, with enthusiastic and very competent guide Jamie. Highly recommended!
