Amazing tour with Heidi she was very informative and answered everyone's questions. I saw everything that I wanted to see and so much more. I would highly recommend her and this tour. I cannot wait to go back to Berlin.
This tour was very good, would highly recommend it. our guide Kevin was excellent.
Tour guide was very informative.
Rick, our guide, is an American from Pittsburgh. He gave an outstanding, apolitical tour. Furthermore, he had to take two groups because one of his coworkers was ill.
My wife was one of the slowest in the bunch, and he waited until all the group was together prior to starting his talk. He did answer individual questions very well as people walked with him. Even our ten year old grandson, who accompanied us with our daughter, was interested. My wife and I grew up during the cold war, and we were able to tell our daughter and grandson what it was like growing up during the late 50's and early 60's as well as the Reagan years.
He was also cognizant of the safety of the group. If others were held up by a red light, he would advise those held up by the light to remain behind, and he would wait for them until they had a green light. Having spent 37 of my career in the chemical industry, which is VERY SAFETY oriented, I personally appreciated this.
He also pointed out a number of faith-based items I would have missed without this tour. These include: the history around the building, destructing, and rebuilding of the Jewish synagog the fact that the Lutheran cathedral was modeled, by the emperor, after St. Peter's in Rome, as the cathedral for the Protestant Reformation. He also pointed out the irony of the Berlin Funkt Turm reflecting a cross in the sunlight this is ironic as the communists built the tower to reflect their prestige.
As an enthusiast of German history, I learned much from him. This tour is highly recommended by me.
I am truly sorry that our limited time in Berlin did not allow us to book more of your tours.

Very informative and interesting. The guide was a genius!
This was the absolute highlight of our Berlin trip!! Very well done and organised tour of the history of Berlin, up to the Berlin wall. Our tour guide Jonathan did an excellent job, he was very knowledgable and happy to answer all questions! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone visiting Berlin!
Great way to get an introduction and overview of many of the significant sights
We loved this tour!!
A pleasant experience, Kyle was a good tour guide. My only suggestion would be to speak a bit more slowly and allow more time for people to ask questions, as it made the whole experience seem a bit rushed.
This tour was the first and too long of a walk on a cold, rainy, snowy miserable day in Berlin. The guide moved very quickly and we couldn't hear most of what was being said. I am not sure why they don't use head phones with these large walking groups in Germany. I was interesting seeing the place by foot, but I wouldn't recommend it to someone who have a hard time walking. It is a big city and a lot of walking.
