Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I love walking tours and have taken many. This tour is not free and cost about 20 Euros. But in return you get a qualified guide and the itinerary of the walk is curated so over the 3 plus hours of the tour you see of the key places in Berlin. For a full list of what is covered, read the description. Our guide Annika was great, she conveyed the history of the places we visited but from a local Berliner point of view (she lives in the immediate area). The tour did start at 10:30, took a 30 minute break at Checkpoint Charlie, and ended around 2pm. We did this our first day in the city and it helped us shape our itinerary for the rest of our Berlin visit.

We were lucky enough to have Campbell as our tour guider today. He was extremely knowledgeable & kept a group of 15-20 people entertained throughout the 3-4hr journey. The journey started at Alexander-platz & ended at Checkpoint Charlie. Campbell covered all areas that I would recommend visiting, this is also an amazing way to see the city on foot & get your bearings. If you get Campbell has your tour guide, listen out for his comical impressions. :)))) thank you Campbell!

This tour led by our very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide Walid, was an invaluable snapshot of Berlin past and present. Walid guided a large group with care and courtesy, pointing out landmarks and their associated history. We walked to places of significance including Museum Island, the remnants of the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust Memorial and finishing at the Brandenburg Gate. Walid's detailed explanation of the origins of the East and West divide, the rise of Nazism ,and the significance played by the early history was a walking museum that was both fascinating and entertaining. I recommend this tour for all those wanting to connect with the historical parts of Berlin. Thank you Walid, for your expertise.

We met at the assigned spot, that seems like a place for all the tours to start. When we first met Maria, she seemed very soft spoken, and I thought how will I be able to hear her? But after getting us all together, her introduction showed her voice was loud enough for all of us to hear. Our group had 12-15 people, but she kept us together, and the stops were frequent enough for her to keep count. The tour was a mixture of old and new Berlin, with good stories and historic places. A rest stop at “Checkpoint Charlie” was well timed, and the restrooms were good. It’s a good tour to locate places to return to for a longer visit, but Maria gave you just enough time and info to whet your appetite for that spot. We ended at the Brandenburg Gate just over 3 hours after the start, and all questions were answered and directions to various restaurants and sights. All in all, a very good tour for a nice morning walk.

Thoroughly enjoyable tour of Berlin, with a wide ranging and interesting history of the city. Scott didn't just tell us about the facts though; he was very good to go into more detail, and add context beyond the events themselves, which was greatly appreciated and left much to ponder.

Fascinating tour! Would recommend to anyone visiting Berlin for the first time and wanting to see the main locations, and the context behind them. Honestly could have spent another two hours wandering and listening to Scott talk about the cities history!

I did a half day tour with friends on my first trip to Berlin. Xavier was our guide and we had the best experience. He was funny, light-hearted, thoughtful - all which kept a 4+ hour tour of some pretty heavy material quite entertaining. I would absolutely recommend and I would absolutely do another tour with Xavier again (He told me that he also does tours of Sachsenhausen, the concentration camp just north of Berlin). He's probably the best tour guide I've ever had. We had a group of about 13 - from all over the world, which was also a great part of the experience. Wear your walking shoes, and come well rested!

Glen from England was my guide for this group walking tour namely Discover Berlin Tour. I learned so many interesting things, in particular about Hitler’s Bunker, Checkpoint Charlie and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

I would highly recommend the Original Berlin Walks company to anyone thinking of booking a city of Berlin walk tour.

Our tour guide was really funny, enjoyable to talk to and vast amount of knowledge on the city of Berlin. He will make you think about something to which he will make you think about it in the end. Very easy to understand and get your attention, I highly recommend this tour and was good fresh air to hear someone still passionate about history.

Ryan is a brilliant guide with extensive knowledge that he contextualizes expertly. We took the tour upon our arrival in the city and for the following week we were gifted by the familiarity with the area he had provided us. Ryan's humor, insights, and long view of history are the ideal combination for walking tour host; my wife and I recommend this tour to everyone considering it.

You were very lucky to get a tour with Ryan! He's one of the most experienced guides in town, and on top of being incredibly knowledgeable he has such a great way with words - he's able to say things in one sentence that would take other people two or three! I hope you'll recommend Original Berlin Walks and Ryan to your friends when they come to Berlin! Best, Jonathan Whitlam
