If you're looking for a fun, delicious, and interesting way to explore Berlin, look no further because Fork and Walk is pretty much it.

We were lucky enough to get Dov (who looks like Gene Wilder, I was struggling to place it the whole tour lol) as our guide and he was great.Truly the Wonka to our Berlin food factory tour. Very funny, personable, and most important, filled with tons of knowledge about the neighborhood and Berlin. I don't think we had a question that he couldn't answer; dude was a walking encyclopedia.

On the history side, I loved the mix of places that we went to. There were so many hidden gems that I would have never found on my own, but that helped tell Berlin's story in a beautiful and often thought-provoking way. We also didn't run into any other tour groups, so it felt like a very unique experience, really special.

On the food side, everything was perfect. The types of food, the timing between foods lol, the amount of food...I have no complaints. Everything was delicious (even the more unconventional things), and every stop was a chance to contextualize that food within the larger history of Berlin, so even while you're eating, you're learning.
On portion sizes, we shared everything and I was satisfied, but not stuffed.
To add context, I went to climb the Victory Tower after the tour, and death did not come. I was also hungry enough for dinner later that night, but didn't need any food until dinner. For me, that was a plus, because I wasn't looking to be out of commission for the whole day.

So overall, I had a fantastic time and definitely recommend that you stop reading reviews and go book your Fork and Walk tour. If you have active taste buds and like to have fun, you're gonna love it. I certainly did and will definitely go on another one next time I'm in Berlin.

Pro tips to keep the party going:
1. Ask for recommendations afterwards, and then actually go to the recommendations!! Dov was kind enough to provide a variety of them, and they were killer. So incredibly good, and consistently better than the spots I picked based off my own research.

2. Pay attention to your surroundings and take notes of things that you want to come back to. I was able to come back and pick up some beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces at some boutiques were passed, but I would have never found those places, if not for this tour.

Highly recommend
Went on the above tour with Dov as our guide. We went to some great places to eat and learned a good bit about the city of Berlin. I went with a friend who lives in Berlin and he even learned a lot.

At the end of the tour Dov gave us recommendations of places to eat and things to do in the city. The next day we went to an Austrian restaurant he recommended and it was phenomenal.

If I'm ever back in Berlin I would do another food tour with this group. Highly recommend.

The best walking tour and food tour in Berlin!
I recently visited Berlin with my girlfriend and this was by far the best day we had on a tour. The booking process online was smooth and the friendly team at Fork & Walk Tours made sure our small group had a fantastic day! Our guide Dov was clearly very knowledgeable on both the history of Berlin and the cuisine. It was so interesting to learn about Berlin's past, to how it is growing today. The food was absolutely spectacular - I had a very satisfied belly! They catered really well for my girlfriend who is a vegetarian and for meat eaters (me) of course, plus Dov even went out of his way to look after a family's young one on the tour.

If you are looking for a walking tour with real locals then book Fork & Walk Tours. I will be telling all my friends,

Thanks again Fork & Walk!
