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 Trends and Classics tour - great food, great fun
Our enthusiastic and informative guide, Mel, led us through interesting neighborhoods to great food stands and charming intimate restaurants. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices were available, and the food was excellent. Mel was also very helpful and kind to give us recommendations for further exploration of Berlin.

The perfect food tour to do in Berlin!
This one of the best food tour we had so far, the food stops are a mix of the "must eat" and hidden gems, even after visiting in Berlin several times before we were surprised :). our guide Dov was super friendly and had some great stories about each place.

Had a great time!
Went on the tour with my two teenager daughters and met a fellow traveller from the States. My daughters and I had a great time. We really enjoyed talking to our guide Sebastien, not only about historical and culinary aspects of Berlin, but also the mindset of a Berliner. He was engaging, thoughtful, and insightful, all the while making sure everyone had sufficient food to eat!! Loved our tour and would recommend it highly.

Amazing Experience!
My Trends & Classics Tour was super delicious, informative and fun.
I got to explore places that I would have never come across by my own. We were a group of 5 which was perfect and tasted our way through the beautiful district of Prenzlauer Berg. Especially on a sunny day like ours, this is a great idea to get to know hidden places in Berlin and get to eat the best food (and coffee!). Thank you so much F&W for this trip and the knowledgable and sympathic guide Anastasia. Will definately recommend the tour to my friends and probably doing another one once I´m back in Berlin ;)

It felt like an afternoon with friends!!!!
We absolutely loved the Fork and Walk ‘trends and classics’ tour of Berlin.
Our guide, Jane took us through the hip neighborhood of Kreuzberg. We ate everything from currywurst to cakes to coffee.
Jane was really informative and told us all kinds of info about Berlin and the area and as a group we had some great talks.
We liked the relaxed vibe and what felt like having lunch with friends.
I would highly recommend this tour for those waned a little something different and off the beaten track.

Lived My Best Food Life
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 coffee tour ever!
Taking part in the coffee tour was a great idea for a weekend break. Everything was thought out to the smallest detail: we managed to visit 3 places, walk around Berlin and get acquainted with the most outstanding personalities of the coffee scene. The program included a light breakfast, coffee capping, sandwiches and sandwiches, as well as a lot of coffee.

Many thanks to the guys for organizing!

Amazing Coffee Education Tour
We were very happy to see that Fork& Walk offered a special Coffee Education tour during the Berlin Coffee Festival.

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!
