Loved it!!! The guide was very knowledgeable, fun and welcoming! His knowledge of Berlin history and his anecdotes made the whole experience truly fascinating and light. He also took the time answering questions and having a quick chat on recommendations for the rest of our trip. The tour was well organised, not too long, not too short... just perfect. It took us to so many famous sites, and we got to see parts of Berlin we never would have seen. We have taken two trails (red and blue) and we have been impressed both times. Totally recommended!

Reiko and his Bully, born in 1965 - a great team! It was instructive, funny and very interesting 2 hours in which Reiko brought us closer to his Berlin and its history. Was fun - thanks Reiko!

Highly recommend. A great way to tour the city. Helped us figure out the places we wanted to return to the during the rest of our stay.

We had such a great tour with Alex! It was a super informational overview of the city. 10/10 recommend!
