We loved the walking tour with Martin. He knows so much about the city and its history. Not only that, he answered all the questions.

Everything went so well, that we repeated with him the following day and did the holocaust camp tour.

Both excursions were great!!

If you're new to Berlin, a good guided walking tour is a must. We've done two - general history & Red Berlin - on previous trips, but we learned a lot more from Mike's tour. A clever combination of Berlin's recent history with its architecture and its street art, in the courtyards and along the remaining 1km+ section of the Wall, presented enthusiastically and knowledgeably by Mike. Don't be put off by the 4 hours - it's not a 4-hour hike, and we had a good break by a beer and food shack. Thanks, Mike!

I have been with Insider Tour's walking tours before and found them excellent. This one was right up to standard with a very good guide - Orr. We really got to see parts of the city that would have taken months to discover on our own and heard about the political and social changes that have created this city. This tour was far more than just sightseeing. It was educational and enjoyable and shows why Berlin is the 'Capital of Cool'. If you are visiting Berlin do make a point of going on this tour. As a bonus, if you are interested in Street Art, as I am, you will see some of the best in the world.

Our tour of Berlin walking began with disorganization and an over crowded tour. We went to the second location to try to split up but they were overbooked as well, so, we went on the walking tour With Barnaby....We made it halfway through the tour before the group bolted down a side street and lost us, we were taking pictures, granted we should have kept up with the group. Too many people on the tour and the guide just wanted to get it over with!

This walking tour gave real insight to the origins of modern Berlin. The many neighbourhoods we visited were varied and vibrant. Our tour guide Yan was excellent. This was our second walking tour with Insider Tour and we can highly recommend them.

Our four hours spent with Maria touring to 4 different parts of the city (hopping on and off the trams) was so insightful. We learned so much about how the city has changed and continues to change and what the young people are doing to preserve community and history as well as sustain a vibrant music culture. Maria was very engaging and well informed. We highly recommend this new tour. All the people on the tour had done another Insider Tour the day before and came back for more!

This tour is the best way to know the centre of Berlin and it history: 4 hours walking for the main historical places. The guide Thomas was amazing! He knows a lot about the city history and he is super didatic, having the ability to talk about all tragic facts that happen in a very soft and entertaining way. As a plus, his english is perfect, super easy to understand.
Super reccomened! and if you have Welcome Card you can get a good discount!

Jamie G was an excellent tour guide giving plenty of information and was not at all boring. He really knew his history and was pleasant to talk to and happy to answer questions. He even drew on the ground at one point with sidewalk chalk the history of Berlin and where the wall was constructed in relation to the city and country. I highly recommend this tour! 5 out of 5 for sure.
