I took the Original Berlin Walk today (Aug 22nd). It was a fantastic tour, very much thanks to our guide, Jonathan, who is extremely knowledgeable and was very smart about the way he built the tour. The tour was 4 hours and it was just perfect, with a good pace that gave enough time to really appreciate the sights and the insightful stories and information that Jonathan so well crafted. If before the tour I was a bit concerned that it might be too tiring and too long, just the opposite happened. It left me want more. Thank you Jonathan and the Original Berlin Walks for the great experience.

I attended the Discover Berlin Tour today with a friend. Our guide Jonathan gave us a great introduction and overview of the German history, followed by a more specific focus on the history of Berlin.
Jonathan is a very nice, thoughtful, witty and knowledgeable guide, who somehow managed to make the four hours of the tour fly by.
After his tour I felt intrigued to find out more about the city and I left with a lot of new perspectives on Berlin, which will keep me thinking for a while.
Thank you for the great tour, Jonathan. I wish you the best for your future career as a tour guide and as a musician.

Excellent, informative tour of Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Finn was an excellent guide, whose wealth of knowledge gave us an in depth experience of the history of this tour. We learnt so much from this trip and couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Warning, it is a long day (well worth every penny) so stock up on snacks and fluids to take with you!

Beth was extremely good- informative, kind, funny (I can't remember laughing so much) and were speaking fluently and with a lot of enthusiasm :)
this tour actually contains most of the sites you need to see in the city. Every stop Beth was telling us about the history of the place with a touch of humor. I don't know if the tour or her, but you have to try it ! :)

We enjoyed Berlin as a bilingual group (English/German) and one of the highlights was the Original Berlin Walks Tour with our lovely guide Caroline. It was the grown-ups who booked this private tour for two families and initially the prospect of a 4-hour walking tour wasn't exactly promising for our teenage children (to say the least!). After the tour, though, we were all raving about it. We were impressed with Caroline's historical knowledge, her friendliness and also by her ability to outline 800 years of history without reciting or droning on sentences previously learned by heart. She focussed on the most important facts and answered all our questions in detail and with great competence. The tour was not only highly informative, but also entertaining, even amusing - we appreciated her wonderful sense of humour. The five teenagers in our group especially liked that she told us interesting facts about her own grandparents who were living in Germany during World War II. An unexpected plus was the fact that the tour took about half an hour longer than we had expected; yet it was over too fast. Thumbs up for Original Berlin Walks and for Caroline!!!
