    Ariel was our host for the walk. A very warm and knowledgeable man. I, having served in West Berlin when the wall was up, was intrigued to know more of the East Berlin perspective - and was not in the least bit disappointed. The tour wasn't long enough but it's a great 'taster' for those with a real interest in pre and post ww2 Berlin. Thank you Ariel for making our visit to Berlin much richer.

    Involves a lot of walking but takes to go every main tourist attraction in the city, and some other less well known. You do get a little lunch break but you’d never guess you walk as long as you do! Tour guides are friendly and funny and make the information digestible. Fantastic tour by Jamie from insider tours.

    A really excellent introduction to Berlin. Maria, our guide, was knowledgeable, very bright and energetic. The experience made me think a lot more about Berlin and where I would like to revisit and focus more time on. I wouldn’t have been able to see the same things with ease, if it wasn’t for this tour. Thank you to Maria.
