We didn’t have high expectations when we went to the guided tour. However, this was the best experience we have ever had and even our 16 year old daughter got interested. Our guide Mr Mondaca was very knowledgeable about the early and modern history about Berlin we should have

My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Francisco around the Berlin wall, which was packed with trips to monuments, train stations, viewpoints and museums. Francisco was so knowledgeable about the wall and the whole historical context of Berlin - he had hugely

I wish I’d done this tour earlier in my stay in Berlin as it was so informative and insightful of both the history and the contemporary issues at play in the city and the region. Francisco stands as one of my favourite tour guides in tours I’ve taken across Europe. He is warm,

We were disappointed with this. Our guide knew lots but tried to tell us far too much, consequently we spent far too long at a few places and only seemed to visit the standard tourist sites.

Response from Birchysberlin1, Manager at Explore The Berlin Wall: Cold War Berlin and Behind the Berlin Wall
Responded 13 Oct 2019
Oh no Liz.sorry to hear that you were not completely happy with your tour. I have had a word with your guide who took you to make sure he adjusts himself in future. The fact that your tour coincided with the Berlin Marathon did mean that we had to deviate from our usual tour route and am sure the cold and torrential rain did not help the situation! We hope you did have a great time in Berlin otherwise.
