This was an amazing tour!!! We learned so much about Berlin and all the important sights to see.
The tour guide, Jamie, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about the city ans shared the right amount of historical facts and modern-day Berlin. I wish I could have taken other tours but our schedule didn't allow it.
