Our guide was Brian and he was incredible. An actor as well as a tour guide Brian would at times act out scenes of history which made things so easy to understand and remember. Most hilarious was his rendition of Günter Schabowski‘s press conference leading to the fall of the Berlin Wall. I learned so much and it felt relaxed and fun. Remember to bring: water, sunscreen and comfortable clothing. There is a stop 2 hours in where you can get a yummy hamburger or sausage for lunch. Oh and try to purchase a day pass for the subway in advance.

I must have been to dozens of city walks in different countries, but this one, with Texan/Berliner Brian Bell was outstanding. He not only told us a great deal about the city, but did it with huge enthusiasm and humour. Highly recommended.

Julian gave us a fantastic introduction to Berlin! We felt like we saw a lot and learned a great deal. Julian was thoughtful and knowledgeable; patient and funny, too. He brought the city to life for us. We would take a tour with this organization again and look forward to it!
