Can you just imagine a living story happening around you?Every building, monument, memorandum comes to life and you feel like you are traveling through time.
From feelings of excitement, sadness, shock, laughter, this was a historical roller coaster for me. And believe me,I say it mildly. And you know what the biggest surprise is?To experience it all through the story of one man. It seems that the city can really come to life and history can be repeated, even through words.
All Im just gonna say,his name is Xavier.
Do not miss this for anything in world!

Rain sleet or snow this tour is happening! And thats a good thing! We took the tour on a cold windy Sunday but our guide Campbell made it an enjoyable experience. He was very knowledgeable and made the almost 4 hour tour a delight to be on. I would recommend this tour for any visitors to Berlin.

First time we take these kinds of tours and it was initially driven by the fact that everything was closed on a 1st of january. It turned out fascinating and really enjoyable. Xavier is a great guide with not only knowledge but a storytelling that keeps you interested and captivated for the full 4h30 of the visit. Given the history of Berlin it would be a mistake to miss this.

We just loved this guided tour as it points out the most visted locations in Berlin. Xavier our guide, a French guy who speaks beautifully english and lives in Berlin for years. What would you want for more? Really knowledgeable, energetic, and impartial when he talks about facts of history. Our guided tour took more than 4 hours, but we didn’t even realized how time flew by as there was always something new and interesting to learn and hear about. Overall, I strongly recommend this tour for visitors in Berlin.

Our guide, Ryan, was extremely knowledgeable about the city and even though it was cold and rainy made the entire tour enjoyable. I would highly recommend doing this tour early in your visit. It gave us a good idea of where we wanted to go back to, see more of and a better overall understanding of the city.
