MATTI our guide
This was an excellent tour of Berlin which we thoroughly enjoyed.
My wife and I both felt that our guide was superb and extremely knowledgeable and it was he, introducing the rich history of Berlin that made all this happen.
5 Stars for sure !!!

Berlin Walking Tour
We were so impressed with the walking tour.
Dave was so knowlegable, considerate and amusing.
We learnt so much that truly helped us enjoy our further few days in Berlin. Fantastic information passed on in a way that was easy to understand and easy to remember.
Dave included everyone and spent the right amount of time at each stage if the tour.
Everyone felt comfortable and we didn't want the tour to end. It was the highlight of our holiday.
Thank you.
Amazing insightful tour
Sarah was superb, this was a great way to not only capture the highlights of this city but to get your bearings geographically. Where didn't we go! From the story of Ampelman (I am so glad they retained some of the flavour of east Berlin), to be standing on the bunker site where Hitler and Eva went to ground. One of the most profound memorials was in the Neue Wach it's a minimalist memorial, a building with a sculpture in it of a woman holding her dying child. They have opened the roof and there is a round hole above her so when it rains or snows, she gets wet.

Awesome walking tour with Chris!
We had Chris as a guide and the guy is great. He gave us a pretty complete intro to German history, so that the tour had a context and we could understand easier why the city is the way it is today. It was a 4-hour walk which gives a good idea of what you might want explore more in depth.

Fantastic way to discover Berlin and the surrounding areas!
The company actually does a lot of tours and I have so far done two:
The Original Berlin Tour (Guided byRyan) - If you've just landed in the city start with this one. I would call it a classic city tour.
Hitler's Germany (Guided by Kevin) - a story about how the nazi gained power in Germany. Highly recommended if you are interested in the topic. It's a hard to digest tour but I am happy I did it.
I have done a few walking tours in my life but I have never found them so engaging - both of them! Doing 2 more tours with them the following days and I am looking forward.
UPDATE:
So I have since done 3 more tours:
Sachsenhausem with Rick - Fantastic guide in a heavily emotional place. Highly recommended.
Potsdam with Jess - had a very fun day talking about kings and wannabe German palaces.
And the best one - the food crawl with Alex. I was lucky enough to be alone. Great (and a lot!) of food, interesting view of Berlin and overall the best way to end my holiday!

We spent a very pleasant day exploring Potsdam with our guide, David. Our group met in Berlin and traveled to Potsdam on public transportation (30 minutes). David walked with us all through the city for several hours. We stopped for lunch in the downtown area before heading to the palace. In spite of the damp weather and intermittent showers we had a great day.
i would highly recommend both OBW and David.

My wife and I went on a tour of Potsdam with Original Berlin Walks. The tour guide was named Jim. Jim was an excellent guide; he was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He was patient when answering questions. I learned a lot from Jim. Jim majored in German history in college. I highly recommend the Potsdam tour with Original Berlin Walks.

Our Tour guide's name was Rick and he was really good at setting the scene when we came to a new site on the Tour.

The Group was very interested in German affairs and history so a lot of different questions came up during the day..
