This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Taylor was extremely knowledgable and explained everything so well. He showed us places we wouldn't have known about or thought to visit. Taylor gave us a history recap at the start of the tour, which was very helpful, as it helped put things into perspective and made the whole tour flow really nicely. I think this tour is an absolute must for anyone visiting Berlin. Berlin is a big city, and without a guide, it's really hard to know what you are looking at. A lot is covered in the 4 hours and it is extremely good value for money. I can't recommend it enough!
