Went on this walking tour on Friday, despite the torrential rain we had a great time. Our guide James was really knowledgable, gave us lots of information on the main sites and it really set us up for our weekend exploring Berlin!

3-4 Berlin walking tour
Feb 2020
We ordered our tour through the viator app, downloaded the ticket which had times and location for start of tour. On arrival we were greeted with our guide Jonathan N who ironically was from Israel, I now know that Germans don't really get irony, we learnt a few other things as well. Jonathan was friendly and informative through out, not only telling us about the history of Berlin but also an understanding of German culture to give context to the tour. The time went really quickly and we had a good day.

Discover Berlin Half Day Walking Tour - INCREDIBLE
We took a half day walking tour yesterday and it has got to be the best walking tour I've ever experienced in a city. Our tour guide was Canadian Chris and his passion and historical knowledge of Berlin was mindblowing. This really is a must do tour when in Berlin!

Kyle our tour guide was amazing, she clearly has such a deep-rooted passion for history and a talent for sharing it without it being too overwhelming at the same time. I cannot recommend her enough and thoroughly enjoyed learning from her.

Original Berlin walking tour
Our tour guide was a lady by the name of Izzy who was simply outstanding, passionate and very very very knowledgeable of her history on not just Berlin but European history in general. The walk started out at about 2 o'clock and probably ended by about 6 with a couple of breaks in between definitely value for money. We saw most of the city centre from east Berlin finishing with the wall and check point Charlie. Highly recommended just one thing to note it's quite a cash dependant city so bring cash alot of the cafes don't take card! Did it first day I arrived and couldn't have done it any other way!

Highly recommend to everyone.
My tour guide, Jess, was undoubtedly one of the most historically knowledgeable people I have ever met. He led the tour with knowledge not only about the stops, but about the city and German history in general.

The tour is excellent value for money and would like to congratulate Berlin Walks for putting together such a succinct, informative and interesting tour about such a broad history of Berlin.

Just Do it!
Seb B was our guide.

This 3h tour was absolutely 5⭐.

Our guide was a young man with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history or Germany and Berlin. He presented the info in an articulate and entertaining fashion. You need to rug up properly in winter, as there is a fair amount of stationary listening. Having said that, you're also walking quite a bit so it's nice n healthy. Keeps you positive in the cold, dark weather!

You also get a half way break at Checkpoint Charlie for a coffee and sausage!

Can't recommend it enough, if you get Seb B -very intelligent guide. Loved it. I'm embarassed I didn't have any cash to tip him! Hopefully this review compensates!!
