The ride was a dream! It is something special to drive with this trio, or to be driven in it. I had booked the ride as a birthday present for my husband. This is very big. Fortunately, my fear that he might hit his head was not confirmed. The opposite is the case. The interior of the limousine is very spacious and cozy. There are also blankets in case (especially we women) you start to shiver. The price-performance ratio is definitely right. A bucket of champagne was already ready. But the wonderful chauffeur deserves a special mention: with a loving joke, with lively little stories about everything worth seeing, he made this trip into something that will remain unforgettable for my husband and me.

Our guide was very pleasant, knew a lot about Berlin's history, but also about local, current conditions and events and showed us little corners and things that we would have overlooked on our own. Although it was raining, he kept looking for a dry place to pass on his knowledge and the tour was very instructive and rich in experience. Since there were only two of us, we were able to adapt the tour flexibly to our wishes. Thank you very much and gladly again.

The experience was amazing! We enjoyed the trip from the beginning till the end and Sebastian was very flexible and informative! we would repeat it any time :)

Our guide, Morgan, was fantastic! We had the very best time! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. We saw so much in just an hour. Loved every minute!

Antonella was a wonderful tour guide; excellent experience!
