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!

We did the scavenger hunt as a family. The kids solved the puzzles partly on their own, partly with help. The maps have a lot of information and you learn a lot about the individual points. We loved it. The individual points are easy to reach on foot.

It's a really unique experience going on a private tour with a east berlin historian. It was great to have that context since my previous experience has been with west Germans. It provided a unique view on history.

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.
