Not terrible, but not as advertised
The food we did have was very enjoyable, but the tour itself was poorly organized. It was as if we were just wandering around a neighborhood. Our guide Michelle also did not give us a lot of information about the places we were passing by; for example, she explained to us that the needle in the middle of Berlin is the second tallest structure in Europe. When we asked her what the first was, she said she didn’t know. The rest of the tour was just us walking around and chatting, not really learning a ton of history about the area. We also did not visit the neighborhoods that were advertised on the tour. The advertisement seemed as though the tour would be about the food and people in the Turkish and Jewish neighborhoods as well as wider Berlin, but there was almost nothing about that.
There was a bit of information about Berlin’s urban counter culture, as well as a meaningful stop to explain a bit about the stumbling stones dedicated to the murdered victims of the Holocaust.
Again, the food was good, and the amount of food we had was good value for the price of the tour, but it was not what we signed up for. At the end of the tour when the group was going to a bar (which turned out to be a supermarket) we left.
