We toured on May 27, 2019. We had an excellent guide for this tour. Unfortunately I do not recall his name. He was most knowledgeable and professional but also seemed to be enjoying himself. We were off the cruise ship but had no difficulty finding him for the tor.

This was an excellent tour with moderate walking required. Our guide was fantastic and provided great insight to all the history of this region as well as personal experience growing up in east Germany.

It was a great tour! A good mix of walking and bus tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and he brought the history of Berlin alive for us. Well worth the time and money!

The tour was paced well and provided plenty of time for questions. The guide was friendly and informative. Thank you for a very enjoyable morning!

Tour guide, outstanding. Content, interesting and informative. Two thumbs up...
