    Super informative

    My son (14 y.) And I were the only participants, but our guide Stefan carried out the tour with great commitment and fun. We have received a lot of background information, supplemented by the personal experience of our guide. In the end we were even more than 2 hours on the road (although it was really cold). My son was also enthusiastic. Many thanks and praise to Stefan!

    It couldn't be better!

    Thank you for this exciting tour! Many thanks to our guide, who gave us this very difficult part of German history in a very exciting and committed way. My 14 year old daughter was just as excited as the adults. Our guide not only gave us the pure facts, but also presented the time from the construction of the wall to the present very knowledgeably and lively and answered all questions very patiently. I would definitely recommend the tour if you are interested in the exciting history of Berlin!

    Die Gruppe bestand insgesamt aus 4 Teilnehmern & Guide. Es herrschte ein sehr angenehmes Klima. Sowohl ich als auch meine Mutter konnten viele neue Einblicke erlangen, was ein Leben zu "Mauerzeiten" bedeutete. Auch die Verknüpfung von Fakten & persönlichen Schicksalen hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Am Ende hat die Führung 2,5 Stunden gedauert. 2 Stunden hätten uns auch gereicht, deshalb nur 4 Sterne.
