I love food. And I love variety and trying new food. So, this tour was really perfect for me! Especially when I go travelling, I consciously try not to fall into the 'tourist trap' and much prefer to eat out (and go) where the locals hang out. It makes for a much more authentic experience (and usually cheaper, too...).
I highly recommend the tour: besides fantastic food, you get to hear about the city and meet lovely people at the same time!

Description

Go beyond our Berlin Classics food tour and enjoy a gastronomic adventure through the city’s chic and gourmet Kreuzberg district. You’ll be guided by our expert foodie and local resident.

We start in the heart & soul of the capital, Kreuzberg. We dip straight into 'Little Istanbul' where you will be blown away by the tastes of the largest Turkish community outside of Turkey.

We then continue along famous Kreuzberg drag, home to the likes of David Bowie & Iggy Pop to discover local beverages.

Next, we dive into the neighbourhood's newest culinary trend, with fusion fries taking main stage, this is a dish only taste can explain.

Then the master of ceremony arrives - the famous Thursday street-food market at Markthalle Neun. We dive into the hassle & bussle of this beautifully converted 1900s market hall, tasting classic & fusion dishes, vegan delights & local wine. Along the way, you’ll learn the stories behind the traders and their offerings.

Finishing-up in the nightlife of a local Kreuzberg bar.

A local market. Neighbourhood eateries. Authentic cuisine. Berlin food culture. History. And a few little surprises along the way.

This is Berlin cuisine on show!

Super good food tour
Couldn't have asked for a better food tour enthusiasts like Michelle. She had a wide spread of knowledge around all of Berlin whilst also showing us the hidden food gems which were a delicacy. Would recommend anyone in Berlin to join this tour if you love food and want to learn some history.

Lived My Best Food Life
If you're looking for a fun, delicious, and interesting way to explore Berlin, look no further because Fork and Walk is pretty much it.

We were lucky enough to get Dov (who looks like Gene Wilder, I was struggling to place it the whole tour lol) as our guide and he was great.Truly the Wonka to our Berlin food factory tour. Very funny, personable, and most important, filled with tons of knowledge about the neighborhood and Berlin. I don't think we had a question that he couldn't answer; dude was a walking encyclopedia.

On the history side, I loved the mix of places that we went to. There were so many hidden gems that I would have never found on my own, but that helped tell Berlin's story in a beautiful and often thought-provoking way. We also didn't run into any other tour groups, so it felt like a very unique experience, really special.

On the food side, everything was perfect. The types of food, the timing between foods lol, the amount of food...I have no complaints. Everything was delicious (even the more unconventional things), and every stop was a chance to contextualize that food within the larger history of Berlin, so even while you're eating, you're learning.
On portion sizes, we shared everything and I was satisfied, but not stuffed.
To add context, I went to climb the Victory Tower after the tour, and death did not come. I was also hungry enough for dinner later that night, but didn't need any food until dinner. For me, that was a plus, because I wasn't looking to be out of commission for the whole day.

So overall, I had a fantastic time and definitely recommend that you stop reading reviews and go book your Fork and Walk tour. If you have active taste buds and like to have fun, you're gonna love it. I certainly did and will definitely go on another one next time I'm in Berlin.

Pro tips to keep the party going:
1. Ask for recommendations afterwards, and then actually go to the recommendations!! Dov was kind enough to provide a variety of them, and they were killer. So incredibly good, and consistently better than the spots I picked based off my own research.

2. Pay attention to your surroundings and take notes of things that you want to come back to. I was able to come back and pick up some beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces at some boutiques were passed, but I would have never found those places, if not for this tour.
