There were seven of us and it was a perfect experience. On the one hand a perfectly prepared T1 Samba(!) and second (even more important) a very knowledgeable and humorous driver and guide. The accompanying material available was also very informative. All in all a great experience and more than worth the money! Thanks!

The tour was very well organised and covered all the major sights of Berlin. Our tour guide, Preston explained everything very nicely and answered all our questions patiently. Thank you for this tour.

We did the tour as a family of 7 adults. It was very informative and fun. However, 2 adults next to the driver are quite cramped. But it was fine for 2 hours. Would recommend for 6 adults only.

Carlo was very likeable, had an amazing knowledge + a huge enthusiasm for this topic. A super storyteller who even extended 40 minutes. We can warmly recommend the tour.

The tour was very interesting and totally enjoyable!
