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.
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.
Many thanks to the guys for organizing!
We thought already we know a lot about coffee, but we really learnt much more on this tour. We got to know different roasteries, had the chance to speak directly to the owners and their insights. We also learnt much about the roasting process, the growers, sustainability and other topics. We had the chance to taste coffee like a professional, and we loved that we got to taste so many different kinds of coffee.
Next to the coffees we also had amazing snacks, and desserts and some were even paired taste-wise with the coffees, something that we never experienced before.
Thanks Fork & Walk for this unique experience, it was a very well organized and professional tour, and we recommended the tour already to our friends!
