Joanna was absolutely wonderful! She’s just about to get her Ph.D. In history and was incredibly informative, as well as tremendously pleasant. We saw everything we had wanted to see in Berlin, and then some, with full explanation of the history. The format of walking and then being transported by driver to the next area made perfect use of our time. I don’t think any moment of the tour was wasted- we were learning all the time. Book Joanna if you get a chance!

We really enjoyed the hop on hop off tour! All the important stops were there and it is a good way to explore Berlin in one day. We got off at the stops that were interesting for us and then took the next bus. We saw the other things from the bus and everything was explained very well and the audio guide speakers didn't make it boring either. We can only recommend the tour. We were out all day and fell asleep at night

Our guide, Walid, and driver, Marcus, took us on an extensive and in-depth tour of the city. Their love for the city shone through in all the detail they knew. Having been there before, they gave me an entire new insight in Berlin. Cannot recommend them enough!

Ryan was a knowledgeable tour guide and customized the trip according to our interests. Marcos was a safe and good driver. I highly recommend this tour. So much better than a large group tour!

It is worth taking a guide in your native language who will tell you about Berlin in a condensed way and show you the most interesting places within 3 hours. I will order.
