I’ve been in Berlin for 4 days now and this is by far the best thing I’ve done. The tour guide (Matthew) was super friendly, smart, answered all of the groups questions and took us on an amazing tour. I wish I had done this earlier in the trip as I would’ve booked another tour through this company (on the front tours). Highly recommend. The tour was about 2.5hours long, not too much walking as there are times when you can sit on benches to rest while listening to the guide

Mark was an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable and friendly. Also a good pace compared to so many other tours that move too quickly. I would highly recommend!

Sehr interessante und kurzweilige Tour, ein Spatziergang durch die Geschichte Berlins. Sehr empfehlenswert für alle Altersklassen …

Excellent guide, Mark made Berlin’s history come to life. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Everything was just great, exciting and interesting
