Thanks for an amazing walking tour of Berlin - John Jerome is an extremely knowledgeable and clearly has the love and passion of Berlin history. In particular he ran the tour with us - bunch tourism professionals who were still a bit shocked and stuck in Berlin after the ITB conference was canceled due to covid19. We weren't the best kind of travelers but we did appreciate John and the tour immensely. Thank you!!

Oren, the private tour guide was knowledgeable, organized flexible and happy to answer all my questions. I took the four hours tour, was supposed to be with another person who couldn’t make it, but still enjoyed the tour. The price is a bit high but totally worth it.

We had the most enjoyable afternoon walking around Berlin! Out tour guide Ciarain was absolutely fantastic, his knowledge of the city was so great and he really did keep you entertained for the 4 hours! As there is so much to see and do in Berlin I highly recommend this tour as you really do cover most of it!

Shout out to Barnaby for being a fantastic tour guide! We visited in May 2019 and booked a private tour. Being an avid historical buff, I knew my father would want to ask the guide dozens of questions so the private tour was ideal. While I sometimes grow impatient with all my dad's endless questions, Barnaby was completely engaged. He was very informative and fun to converse with. We were able to adapt the tour to which sites interested us the most. I'd definitely recommend this tour - book private if you really have a lot to ask and want the one-on-one guide experience. If you don't have that many questions, I'm sure the group tour is just as good!
