Our guide Rob was amazing! He taught us a lot about the history of the buildings and town. He also did good reading the group and relating events and stories to us. He definitely knows his history so when we asked questions they were always answered. Overall the walk was pretty easy and he kept a good pace for the group. I’m not normally a tour person but I definitely recommend this tour to get a whole perspective on Berlin. Even at the end he was willing to make sure people knew how to get home or gave us tips on where to go next.

Excellent tour with a brilliant guide
The tour was popular on the day we attended and ended up being split into three groups. We were lucky to be out into the group led by Wouter. He was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We were so impressed with how he answered questions on topics that weren’t necessarily part of the tour in German, Dutch and English.

The tour last around three hours and takes in Museum Island, the Brandenburg gate, Reichstag and the site of Hitler’s bunker amongst other locations.

We learnt so much and can’t recommend the tour more. It brought Berlin’s history to life and added depth to our trip.

This was one of the best tours I have ever been on! Our tour guide was excellent, informative, and funny! It was so interesting getting to learn about the history of Berlin from a native Berliner. I feel as though I was able to actually feel connected to the city and its people through him, and I just can not recommend this tour enough to everyone!

Great walking tour of Berlin
Dec 2021
This tour was money well spent. An excellent half day spent walking around the streets of Berlin being given an insight into it's history both good and bad from a knowledgeable tour guide. Xavier, the bald French man. One of Frances' greatest exports was our tour guide for this informative tour. Be prepared for a long walk, but with good pair of shoes it will be a day you'll remember. Thank you Xavier for a superb tour.

Top Shelf Tour of EXCELLENCE!
If you like good stuff and seek excellence, this tour was TOP SHELF.

Our guide, Xavier, is an entrepreneur or business man's dream. He knows Europe, he knows history, and Xavier KNOWS people. He was such a breath of fresh air, I forgot to get his contact information so we could steal him and his skills!

The other guides seemed knowledgeable, as well, but we were ALL glad we got Xavier.

My hat is off to this guy!
