Begin Your Visit to Berlin with this Tour!
Our tour guide was John (JJ) and his love of Berlin is obvious. He was extremely knowledgeable, and his enthusiasm was contagious. His quirky sense of humor made the time fly by. I highly recommend beginning your trip to Berlin with this tour. JJ‘s mother Caroline should be proud!
The perfect start to our Berlin trip
I loved this tour! Taylor our guide was so funny and entertaining and he made the history so easy to access even for complete beginners. We went everywhere I hoped we would and more. I cannot recommend this tour enough!!
Brilliant
Tarek was our guide for this tour. His knowledge and enthusiasm were palpable. He is a truly exceptional and talented young man. I learnt so much on this tour. He guided us straight past the crowds and took us to the pinnacles of the displays, the best viewing areas, and explained so much about the history of the museums, the people involved in their construction / revitalisation following much of their destruction and how many of the artefacts displayed had found their way to Berlin. His knowledge and ability to impart that knowledge regarding individual pieces and displays we focussed on for the tour was astonishing. This is a true gem of a tour, exceptional value and I wholeheartedly recommend It to anyone wanting a really personalised experience in a small group environment. After being on this tour with Tarek I just wish we had had more time in Berlin to see more of the the museums. This tour is a memory I will treasure and has lit an interest for me personally to delve much deeper into history and research further into much of what Tarek touched on in this tour. Thanks Tarek.
