Not terrible, but not as advertised
The food we did have was very enjoyable, but the tour itself was poorly organized. It was as if we were just wandering around a neighborhood. Our guide Michelle also did not give us a lot of information about the places we were passing by; for example, she explained to us that the needle in the middle of Berlin is the second tallest structure in Europe. When we asked her what the first was, she said she didn’t know. The rest of the tour was just us walking around and chatting, not really learning a ton of history about the area. We also did not visit the neighborhoods that were advertised on the tour. The advertisement seemed as though the tour would be about the food and people in the Turkish and Jewish neighborhoods as well as wider Berlin, but there was almost nothing about that.

There was a bit of information about Berlin’s urban counter culture, as well as a meaningful stop to explain a bit about the stumbling stones dedicated to the murdered victims of the Holocaust.

Again, the food was good, and the amount of food we had was good value for the price of the tour, but it was not what we signed up for. At the end of the tour when the group was going to a bar (which turned out to be a supermarket) we left.
Wonderful Experience
Our tour guide was very good, personable and knowledgable. We visited a neighborhood of Berlin that I would have never found without this tour.
Perfect guide and hunger satisfied
Dov brought great enthusiasm to the tour and everyone in the group was quickly engrossed. The food was all delicious - especially lunch, and we went back for second helpings of cinnamon whirls they were so yummy! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to see great architecture, enjoy some typical Berlin food and drink, and have fun along the way.
Fantastic tour
Dov was very knowledgable both on the food and history of Berlin - which was an added bonus for us. We stopped off at many different places, all offering something new for us to try. A really great experience that I’d certainly recommend to friends and family.
Wear elastic pants!
Fantastic experience, a bit of history and a lot of fun. Lots of entertaining stops along the way, fantastic choices of places to stop and have a bite to experience the spectrum of food in Berlin!
A nice day to know a friend and learn a bit of Berlin history and food
My first time in Berlin, I always want a not the usual touristy areas but know the place, culture, and food. It was nice to meet Jane, who is in the food business before and lived in Berlin for a couple of years. She gave me an open eye on how multi-cultured Berlin is and the kind of food available in Berlin is global, drinks loads of coffee, healthy, vegan ... free from culture, are all here. Kinda reminds me a very hipster place. Thanks, Jane and Dov ... I hope my next walk with you guys, you will have another interesting area I can explore!
The best way to walk, talk and eat
Had a wonderful introduction to the many different food and drinks available in Berlin. The tasters at each stop were enough so that one could happily continue the walk. The talking gave an insight into the separation and unification of the German capital. Highly recommended.

Amazing!
The food was different and delicious, but most importantly each meal was presented with a wealth of information on how it tied in both culturally and historically with Berlin. The tour was set up to foster a lively vibe with games and interaction that made it more than just a learning experience. The tour delivers the history and culture of Berlin through taste!
Excellent tour with Jane today. Great food and good company. Would highly recommend doing this at the beginning of your holiday as you'll get lots of recommendations and tips on places to eat during your stay.
