Tour molto bello, pur essendo fine gennaio E quindi bassa stagione, eravamo un bel gruppetto! È necessario abbonamento mezzi zona A-B. Si fanno molte tappe e si fa un salto nella storia rivivendo i 30 anni di muro. Molto interessante per avere una panoramica generale e poi magari pianificare alcuni approfondimenti in area specifiche o in musei tematici

Rodrigo fue nuestro guía y estuvimos solos porque la otra pareja que tenía reserva no se presentó. Este chico es encantador! Conoce muchísimo la ciudad y cualquier pregunta te la resuelve. Entiende muchísimo de historia y nos encantó su recorrido así como su forma de explicar. Nos gusta mucho la historia y Rodrigo es de los nuestros! Si volvemos a Berlín, ojalá volver a coincidir con él.

Per gli appassionati di storia contemporanea penso non possa raccomandare questa escursione di più: il dettaglio con il quale vengono spiegate e mostrate le cose, l’impatto emotivo degli storici luoghi visitati e la perizia della guida (nel nostro caso la bravissima Catia) hanno reso questa esperienza indimenticabile. 10!
