Excellent tour with lots of interesting background information about the Scheunenviertel. The tour guide incorporated many personal experiences and drew a very differentiated picture of the social and historical conflicts in Berlin over the past 200 years. She answered questions in detail and knowledgeably. I can highly recommend the tour!

Our guide Susanne did a really great job. It was a lot of fun and it was worth it. We have been to Berlin so often and our first time with excursions and we were thrilled. The story behind it was super interesting. You would never think that Berlin has such great backyards.

A very well guided tour. I got to know courtyards where you would otherwise pass by without a clue. Our guide had a huge amount of background and a nice way of conveying it. I can only recommend this tour to those interested in history. Find out a lot of new things in just over 2 hours. thank you
