Historic Berlin tour
The guide was really nice and you could tell that he knows a lot even though he is not from Germany. Two things we would like to mention- first, it was just an historic tour with mentions here and there of current things. The other thing is the walk- we walked a lot and very fast- I guess we should have been more prepared for it.
It was more than just a sightseeing tour
Darren, you’re not just a great tour guide, you’re a great guy! So knowlegable and engaging! Thank you so much for sharing your passion for berlin with us. We got more than we could have expected from this tour, so much to see and to think about - it was an insightful historical journey that made us fall in love with Berlin.

Really great experience
It was a great experience. Our guide, Rick, was really enthusiastic and very, very knowledgeable. And it's a great way to discover parts of a city by walking.
Great Overview of Berlin
Really good way to get your bearings both historically and geographically. It helped the whole family to decide where to focus our interests for the rest of our visit.
Laura was great
Lots of interesting facts and well organised!

Will recommend
Great way to discover Berlin !!!!
Fantastic guide
We did the Discover Berlin Walking Tour on 7th September with Ryan. He was absolutely brilliant! His knowledge was amazing and delivered expertly and professionally. We would highly recommend this Tour to anyone visiting Berlin.
Excellent.
Our guide, Will, was very informative and knowledgeable and made the tour extremely interesting. He also took us for a lunch drop at a delightful little café which was a bit off the beaten track but very nice and cheap as well. Would give Will 10 out of 10.
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 !!!
Fun evening out all over Berlin
The tour and the guide were fantastic. I will recommend to all of my traveling friends that they must take this tour while in Berlin. The guide is so nice and comfortable. He gets to talking with each person, he got to know us all. We also wanted to share a special thank you to the office person who works at night and took our call after we missed the group at the meeting point. We appreciate you instructions and were able to meet up with the group :)
Brilliant!!!!!!!
We came across your website - used the service and the tour was excellent! Our tour guide was professional - had a sense of humour & extremely knowledgeable- we'll worth the money - would definitely recommend 😄😄😄😄😄
Tour guides name-Laurna- Briliant !!!!
Pip was awesome!
I loved hearing the history of Berlin and the issues of today from Pip. She gave a very engaging and lovely tour - would recommend to a friend.
It was solid, fun and our guide Alex was pleasant. I liked his enthusiastic American style of presenting.
My brother and I decided to join this tour after realising we knew relatively little about Berlin’s Cold War history. Our guide really knew his stuff and was more than happy to answer any questions that popped up. A couple of tips: join the afternoon tour as the group size is usually much smaller and do it on your first day in Berlin to get your bearings.
I recently did the Discover Belin tour with Beth and could not recommend it enough. She was very knowledgable but interjected humor throughout, not making it seem like a boring history lesson. Beth was approachable and friendly, and knew the answers to any questions asked. In addition, she presented the information in a way that allowed me to clearly understand what was happening at the time which made the tour all the more powerful. I enjoyed the discussion that she sparked among the group at various points throughout the tour. In my opinion the tour is underpriced and you will not regret doing this tour!
We had a great time on this really informative tour. Our Guide Beth was really great full of information and knowledge and that great skill to tell it all in a fun way while still being able to put across some or the more sombre moments in Berlins history. She left us with a load of information that we could use to decide what parts of Berlin we would like to delve into further.

I would highly recommend this tour for someone who has never been to Berlin before and will be advising anyone that I know travelling to Berlin to sign up. It was a cold Thursday in Berlin and Beth kept us all rolling along and interested for the whole time. Great tour time well spent.
I did the 4 walking 'discover berlin' tour on my first day in Berlin and I'm so glad I did it. Our guide was Lorna and she was fantastic. She had superb insight into the history and of course her witty humour complimented the overall experience as well. There is so much to cover in Berlin and this walking tour covers the main historical points and architectural sights (e.g. Brandenburg gate, site of Hitler's bunker, Pergamon museum, checkpoint Charlie). It's also a great way to get your bearings around the city- it was helpful as I was able to explore the city more on my own the next day. Lorna made a stop for lunch at a cute little German bakery which was perfect. A must do on your first day in Berlin and at €12 it's a bargain!
This tour was an excellent way to get a first taste of Berlin and identify the main sights, attractions and history. Jonathan, our guide, was fantastic and not only was his English perfect, his knowledge of the history of the city over many centuries was extensive and fascinatingly recounted. This was no rehearsed script but a narrative from a scholar who clearly knew and loved his subject. It was also tremendous value for money.
