Our guide was very pleasant, knew a lot about Berlin's history, but also about local, current conditions and events and showed us little corners and things that we would have overlooked on our own. Although it was raining, he kept looking for a dry place to pass on his knowledge and the tour was very instructive and rich in experience. Since there were only two of us, we were able to adapt the tour flexibly to our wishes. Thank you very much and gladly again.

A great idea to make exploring the city interesting. The tasks are rather simple. The background information on the extra maps for all attractions is also good. Scavenger hunt can be done in 5 hours. Afterwards, relaxation (in a café or restaurant) is good.

We got lucky with our Tour and Tour Guide Carlos. We were able to take our time and he pointed out so many things that we had seen before but didn't know the history behind it. 3 Hours may not sound like a lot but you are definitely beat afterwards.

The tour guide Carlos was very nice and very knowledgeable of the city’s history. Very friendly. And we enjoyed the tour so much

Max the tour guide was brilliant. Warm and friendly.
