    I took part in the tour historical sights & Berlin bricklayers. My guide was Carlo. I had an individual tour, as many people are still concerned about booking tour guides due to the current pandemic. I really enjoyed the city tour. Carlo shared a lot of knowledge about Berlin and was able to answer all of my questions. I definitely recommend this tour. Top! Thank you Carlo :-).

    The guide was bright, in a good mood and very well informed. In a casual atmosphere, I was entertained for almost 2.5 hours. Many Thanks! One request: enlarge your signs! I found the guide by chance, it was difficult. Unfortunately, I didn't get the information that I can find him at the Brandenburg Gate directly under the Quadriga. Otherwise: TOP!
