Tobi, our tour guide is amazing; a great story-teller, he brought the history of Berlin to life with anecdotes from his childhood that helped us understand the relevance of important facts and dates. He delivered all with great humour and fun, but at all times respectful. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend this tour - particularly with Tobi - to anybody visiting Berlin.

My husband and I had Heidi as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic and we can not fault her in any way. The tour was extremely informative, exceedingly interesting and exceptionally well delivered. Heidi was such a warm, personable and likeable guide who felt like a friend and we would highly recommend this tour. We feel we know Berlin so much more now and it’s a great way to begin a stay in this historical city. Thank you so much Heidi.

Our tour guide was a lady by the name of Izzy who was simply outstanding, passionate and very very very knowledgeable of her history on not just Berlin but European history in general. The walk started out at about 2 o'clock and probably ended by about 6 with a couple of breaks in between definitely value for money. We saw most of the city centre from east Berlin finishing with the wall and check point Charlie. Highly recommended just one thing to note it's quite a cash dependant city so bring cash alot of the cafes don't take card! Did it first day I arrived and couldn't have done it any other way!

Delightful 4 hours with Boris. Circled the old part of Berlin with him sharing history and major land points. He was above and beyond the normal guide given his years in Berlin and understanding of what visitors need to orient to the city. Great guide and tour

My tour guide, Jess, was undoubtedly one of the most historically knowledgeable people I have ever met. He led the tour with knowledge not only about the stops, but about the city and German history in general.

The tour is excellent value for money and would like to congratulate Berlin Walks for putting together such a succinct, informative and interesting tour about such a broad history of Berlin.

We took a half day walking tour yesterday and it has got to be the best walking tour I've ever experienced in a city. Our tour guide was Canadian Chris and his passion and historical knowledge of Berlin was mindblowing. This really is a must do tour when in Berlin!

Seb B was our guide.

This 3h tour was absolutely 5⭐.

Our guide was a young man with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history or Germany and Berlin. He presented the info in an articulate and entertaining fashion. You need to rug up properly in winter, as there is a fair amount of stationary listening. Having said that, you're also walking quite a bit so it's nice n healthy. Keeps you positive in the cold, dark weather!

You also get a half way break at Checkpoint Charlie for a coffee and sausage!

Can't recommend it enough, if you get Seb B -very intelligent guide. Loved it. I'm embarassed I didn't have any cash to tip him! Hopefully this review compensates!!

A fantastic tour, cannot recommend enough! Tours can sometimes be let down by an unenthusiastic, dry tour guide.

Gregory, was far from this. Charismatic, funny and honest, we really appreciated his insights and it felt odd to be left by ourselves when the tour came to an end.

On the tour, it was the perfect length and each stop was weighted proportionally. Our particular favourite was the Holocaust memorial, where Gregory gave us good insight from an Art-History perspective and his opinion as a native-Berliner.

Want a tour round Berlin, this is the one? No debate.

Our family has taken a lot of these types of tours and we all said that our guide Jake was the best one we have ever had. By far. At the end, we felt we had seen all the stuff we expected, but the depth of our knowledge was increased so much as he made everything come alive in a profound way. The facts were presented of course, but the stories told along with them made us laugh and think and reflect on history...it is rare to get such a great storyteller and cnnot sing praises for this special tour guide any louder.

We took a 4 hour tour through Berlin Mitte and were absolutely stunned. Even our 8 year daughter enjoyed the tour and it was everything but not boring. Our guide Martin did an outstanding job, combining historic facts with contemporary stories. We loved it!
