Great way to discover the city!
Jess have an amazing tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable, shared some opinions, and was able to answer every question from the group. He had an American accent which made his English very easy to understand. I did this the morning of the first day of my visit and it helped me discover the city and plan the remainder of my stay. Would highly recommend!

Great orientation tour!
An excellent orientation to downtown Berlin! Approximately 4 hours of interesting history to go with the many brief stops along the route. Making this your first activity when visiting gives one a brief overview of the area, and helps planning for your day's ahead. Johnny, from England, was a great guide. We would recommend him highly.

We had a great tour, Discover Berlin , with Jonny. He was knowledgable with a good sense of humor. We had seen some of the monuments Jonny showed us, but it was interesting to hear more of the history behind them. We are also taking another tour about World War 2 and the Third Reich and look forward to hearing more about Berlin from that perspective.

Great tour!
Excellent guide (Tobi). Very knowledgeable and patient. Very good English too. The walk was long but Berlin has so many things to see. The day was very sunny, but Tobi make sure we always had a shady spot to listen to him.
