The tour around the Charite and the clinics was really great. Susanne explained everything to us really well. Showed us some interesting things left and right of the trail. Too bad you couldn't get on the premises due to covid. But the tour was still very nice. And above all very interesting and instructive. If at some point covid should be over, at least we hope so, we will take part in the tour of the site again.

A wonderful guided tour in the footsteps of the pioneers of modern medicine, such as Virchow, Behring, Sauerbruch, just to name a few. Our guide Susanne made it very lively with lots of wit and great expertise. Very interesting the visit to the animal anatomy theater and anatomy. Thank you very much, I will unreservedly recommend this tour.

Very nice and well informed tour guide Kathrin. With City Bikes, he also showed us places next to the tourist hustle and bustle. As a native of East Berlin, she knew one or two personal anectodes to tell. The time flew by very quickly, was informative and entertaining

A great experience for my wife and me. Very informative, our city guide - Susanne - obviously had an unbelievable amount of knowledge, which she knew how to convey in a very dosed way and by no means in a "senior teacher-like" way. The time just flew by ...

Great guide who explained the history of the Charite in a knowledgeable and witty manner using various buildings.
