In four hours, we covered four days worth of Berlin! The tour was fabulous as was our guide Taylor. He made Berlin come alive for us. We loved the tour and Berlin.

Reviewed by: Brian M M, August 2015

Barnaby was a great guide - he really brought Berlin alive for us. We haven't stopped talking about it since. So knowledgable but fun, pitched it just right for the family 1 20 year old, 1 17 year old and two slightly older parents. I really loved Berlin and this tour was no small part of the cause of that.
