We went on the 'Discover Berlin' tour with Rick & the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp tour with Darren and both were fantastic. The guides were so well informed and very passionate about what was covered off in the tours. The Discover Berlin tour is a great way to get your bearings of the city and discover all of the main sites and is useful to get an idea of where you might want to spend more time, I would recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your stay in Berlin for this reason. Rick was a fantastic guide, very informative & knowledgeable. Darren had a tough job taking our group to Sachsenhausen (a 6 hour tour including travel time) on a scorching 35 degree day, but he managed to keep us all interested throughout the tour. He is also very knowledgeable as he has studied German history. The tour was great for anyone who is interested in this aspect of WW2 and German history. I would thoroughly recommend both of these tours and both of these guides, time and money well spent. Just a tip: If you go on the Sachsenhausen tour make sure you take a sandwich and/or snacks with you, as there is nowhere to get food on the tour.

Definitely worth doing one of these tours. Lorna, our guide, was fantastic and really knowledgeable. She didn't let the rain dampen her enthusiasm!

Last weekend we took the Discover Berlin Walk with La Rocca and the Potsdam tour with Dennis. Although the two guides were very different in their approach, both brought a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for their subject and we leant a huge amount from them.

i would recommend these tours to any visitor to Berlin, much more informative than the usual bus tour and also more fun - thanks La Rocca and Dennis for teaching us so much about German history and for making our trip so enjoyable.

The half-day walking tour of Berlin is a great way to get a comprehensive overview of the city, to understand its history and context and to get a good idea of what parts of the city or attractions to explore in greater depth. Our guide, Jonathan, was very well-informed, enthusiastic and able to answer every question posed by the group. He was particularly passionate about the way in which different political or social discourse can change perception or context, and in this way provided a refreshing perspective on a city that I have visited before whilst also showing it in an interesting way to my partner, as a first time visitor. Despite my initial reservation that a tour approached through a lens of political discourse was going to be 4 hours of socio-political jargon and an exercise in self-indulgence by a guide desperate to put years of postgraduate study to some use, I was more than pleasantly surprised. It was, in fact, a delight, and an eye opener. We enjoyed it so much that we are going to book the Potsdam tour for later in the week. We recommend the tour without reservation.
