We had just taken the Charité tour on Friday so when we strolled up for this one and saw the same tour guide, we knew we were in for another treat. Susanne is such a dynamic presenter and it's crazy how much information she knows and delivers. This is one of the coolest parts of the city so a little behind-the-scenes is worth seeing!

Informativer Rundgang durch einen sehr engagierten Guide der seine Begeisterung für die Stadt und die Menschen die in ihr lebten und leben zum Ausdruck brachte. Die fast 60 Minuten die angehängt wurden hat glaube ich niemand aus unserer kleinen (9 Teilnehmer) Gruppe bedauert.

Ein wirklich super schönes Erlebnis! Vielen Dank an Susannne unsere „Führerin“, tolle Informationen, zu keiner Zeit langweilig. Obwohl die Temperaturen den Gefrierpunkt wahrscheinlich überschritten hatten, der Wind eisig fegte, hat dies in keinster Weise diese Tour beeinträchtigt. Wenn ich mehr Punkte geben könnte, würde ich das machen. Ich freue mich schon jetzt auf meinen nächsten Besuch in Berlin und werde auf jeden Fall wieder eine Tour mit Susanne buchen. DANKE 🙏
