We took this walking tour on 17 Feb 2020 and it was absolutely excellent. Our guide Kai was really fantastic. Very knowledgeable and engaging and with perfect spoken English. It is not the most obvious meeting point (most other tours start at the Brandenburg gate) so make sure you plan your way there in advance. We definitely saw key sights that we would have missed if we had attempted a tour unguided, inc the memorial to the night of the broken glass which is hidden away near a children's playground. The stop at the museum was very brief (30 mins) and not enough time to see all we wanted re the exhibits so we went back there (entry free) the next day. Recommend taking a snack with you as it is a long tour. Highly recommend and think this is a must do excursion for anyone visiting Berlin.
It was fascinating to finally see the sites I've read so much about, & seen on tv documentaries for many years. We were a group of just 4 & our guide was thoroughly well versed & passionate about the subject. He encouraged us to offer views & was able to answer any questions. I've got a basic, self taught understanding of the subject & our guide was glad to fill in the gaps & tie everything together. There's LOTS of walking! There were a couple of rest breaks, one of which was at a pleasant street cafe for refreshments. I shouldn't forget to add that Matt(?), our guide, brought along a bottle of water for us all on what was a very warm day. I wouldn't expect this to be the case if we were a group of 15 or so though!
Fantastic time visiting all of the key places of the Third Reich, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful when answering questions. He allowed time for pictures to be taken, and gave time to stop at each place to inform us of the history of each location.
Well worth the money. Get to see all the main landmarks of Berlin whilst learning lots on the way. I recommend the walking tour, best part of the experience! You get to learn things you would of missed, such as Hitlers Bunker!
This tour was very good. A very informative and enthusiastic guide, who gave a very detailed and interesting insight into Berlin life in the 1930/40s.
