“Excellent "free tour" with "Zabi"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

My friends and I were on a weekend trip to Berlin (Juni 2014). One activity was the "free tour" through Berlin, our tour guide was Zabi. Without overdoing, this was the most informative, entertaining and emotional city tour ever! We saw many meaningful places and heard a lot about the german berlin history. Although we are german there were many new infomations and new points of view in Zabis report.
Zabi is a really nice guy, with some good gags, talking good english, pronouncing with a slight accent. He know a lot about Berlin and the history.
The 2,5 h ran soo fast and we enjoyed it so so much! Again at any time!!!

Great free walking tour that covers the main attractions in Berlin!

We had an awesome guide - Zabi. His knowledge and passion for the city shone through. One of the best guides i've had so far in Europe.

“Greatest tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

On our first day in Berlin we did the free walking tour. We were so impressed by our tour guide, Sam, that we booked into two more tours with him, the Third Reich (the same day, in the afternoon) an a few days later for Sachsenhausen.

Sam's ability to draw parallels between past and current atrocities increased our comprehension of this period in time. Sam expertly used comic relief to enable the group to continue through emotionally tough parts of each tour. We didn't feel any of this was inappropriate, rather it drew attention to ironies that we other wise would not have recognised or known about. Sam also had excellent recommendations for books, movies, food, shopping and thing to do after the tour, much more than we were expecting.

Thank you Sam for enhancing our Berlin experience, it has definitely been the highlight of our trip.

“An amazing day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

4 of us went on the Sachsenhausen tour with Sam. It was a really interesting day and while heavy and emotional is some ways Sam was fantastic, full of information, nice and careful to check on everyone on a hot day and see how we were going. This is a really good tour to go on if you have the time.
