My buddy from Boston flew and dragged me along on a food tour ( I live in Berlin...). I was pleasantly surprised. Our guide, Dov, was a cool dude, well versed historically, and showed me some new spots I never knew existed in my hood. Good times.

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.
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.

Coffee education tour
Brilliant tour - a real deconstruction of the coffee experience with a tour guide who clearly loved sharing the wealth of knowledge and contacts he had. The tour started ‘at the end’ and finished at ‘the beginning’ of the coffee cherry’s (yep it’s not a bean at the start) journey to the cup. Uli took us to some unique spots with hosts who welcomed us to their establishments discussing all the intricacies of coffee from their various perspectives: the barista, the roaster, the bean sourcer... and all the while learning loads it never felt like I was at school... needless to say after endless cups of coffee (machine, filter, drip) I was bouncing off walls too! Great time, awesome gang and fabulous way to discover the hidden parts of Berlin...
Great food, great tour, great guide!
We booked onto the food tour with no issues at all, the guide merged us with another tour but made sure we were okay with this first and it was no problem. The tour is great, lots of nice food in places you wouldn’t normally head in as a tourist, dov the guide was very friendly, interactive and informative and kept the information light and interesting. The food goes without saying was excellent, dov recommended a place for schnitzel too which we tried and was amazing! Thanks dov!

Original Berlin Food Adventure: 10 local Tastings - 5 STARS!!!
Wow, this is definitely the best food tour we have ever experienced. We have travelled very often to Europe, Asia, US and South America and taken a number of food tours in each city, but this takes the cake.
The 10 tastings were all fantastic and gave us a great insight into the history of food in Berlin, the impact of immigrants on the cuisine and Germany V's Berlin - so great!
Dov our tour guide was simply excellent and very knowledgable. He has lived in Berlin for 11 years and this is reflected in his knowledge and know-how of life here in Berlin and Europe.
We took a history tour the day before, but we learnt more on this tour about the history of Berlin from a historical, social and cultural perspective than the history tour the day before.

Our favourite (well it is hard to narrow it down) was the local Turkish restaurant, watching Turkish grandmothers create the tasty Gozleme. But also the fusion-fries trend was really special.

We cannot recommend this tour highly enough. A must do in Berlin!!

Fantastic experience
Our tour guide Jane took us on a fantastic walk through some lesser known parts of Berlin, her knowledge of the history and the various neighbourhoods was second to none. Cannot recommend this Tour more highly. It was a great way to introduce yourself to a new city
