What people are saying about History Tours in Berlin
This museum was really engaging with all their exhibits, and shows you the life of a citizen back then in East Germany. There’s even a simulation of driving through the streets of Easy Germany in the Trabi! Amazing ticket to get when visiting Berlin! Many attractions and Christmas Markets around the vicinity too.
Fantastic walking tour. Martin our guide was a Berlin local with lots of knowledge to share. He covered a range of historical periods and we covered lots of ground in the tour. Walking was a good pace with lots of stops. Martin always waited for all in the group to be there before giving the information. Would highly recommend.
Sam z was brilliant! knowledgable and very intelligent guy. He was friendly and approachable. In a nutshell, excellent! I am glad i took this tour. We can all walk around to see the attractions, with none or limited knowledge. Sam was first class, he spoke like he had been born here. He was also funny and made the tour interesting. 4 hrs long but it flew by! Well done sam z 👌. From wales Diolch!🏴
