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.

Well worth the money. The tour guide, Dennis, was an excellent guide and knowledgable man - studying a degree in history and growing up in Berlin made him a perfect fit for the job. The tour followed the story of a single man who went to the camp, allowing a more personal touch to understanding how life was like there.

Overall a great trip - would definitely advise you wear warm clothes however!

We booked onto a tour of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, and our guide for the day was Lorna. She was very knowledgeable about the camp and the history behind it. And you could tell that she had a real passion for imparting her knowledge and teaching people about what really happened. It was a very interesting tour and a great way to learn about the history of the camp. I would definitely recommend this tour and Lorna.

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.
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.
