Not quite what we expected.
Ok, so to start with our guide Daniel was a half hour late and we were on the verge of leaving. First stop was a little micro brewery and Daniel shared some of his knowledge of the brewing process, he certainly knows his stuff and was able to answer our many questions. After that though, it was just visits to a couple of craft beer bars. We got a beer at each as part of the tour, and the opportunity to buy a couple more, and some croissants to share. The tour wasn't quite what we expected and not great value for the money. If it was a few euros cheaper, or if we had got to 'sample at least 5 beers' as was advertised, I would give another star, but still lose one for being late. Sorry Daniel!

We a had a great time on this tour. Would recommend doing it on first or second night of trip as it's a great way to get your bearings and find a few great spots. Learned loads about brewing processes and had a laugh with the tour guide

Had a wonderful time - great group of people and great guide. Got to taste some great beers at places I never would've found on my own, and got some history and interesting info about beer and breweries in Berlin. Loved it!

Prost to Aussie Dave!
I had a great time on the Craft Beer Tour with Dave. My girlfriend and I have lived in Berlin for a little more than 2 years and we knew little about the beer scene here. It was great to learn something new about the city we live in and try some good brews and not so good brews along the way. (We weren't big fans of the sour beers, but it was fun trying something different.) The tour was just about 3 hours long, but felt much shorter as the group was fun and Dave kept the tour moving at a nice pace. We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends. It made for a great date night.

Please keep running this tour!
Finn deserves a pay rise! I loved that he included trans history in the tour - was expecting a much more 'gay-centric' view. As a trans person myself, this made a big difference. He was great at answering questions and has such a well-rounded knowledge of both Berlin and queer history. Can't wait to see what he does in the future.

Ryan did a great job showing us the important gay history of Berlin and also taught us about other important historic events including the fall of the wall. We enjoyed his sharing personal stories of his life in Berlin. We highly recommend this walking tour.

Wow! What a great tour! If you are gay, and in Berlin, and you miss this tour, you will be sorry! Informative and fun! Takes you back through the gay history of Berline all the way back to the mid 1770's! DO NOT miss this!

I have been to Berlin many times and have taken most of the Original Berlin Walking tours, they are always excellent ! This one in particular was very special to me, as a gay Jewish man I was very interested in learning the history of gay and lesbians in Berlin. Our tour guide Finn was informative and passionate about the subject. He brought new light and understanding to the gay neighborhoods. No longer were the streets just filled with random gay bars, I left the tour with a deep understanding of the history and culture of the neighborhood. this is a must for Gay and lesbian travelers.
