Really interesting tour, especially if you interesting in architecture plus history. It is very interesting to get to know the change of this beautiful neighbourhood throughout the centuries and how it used to be before it became this cute kinda "posh" area. Best part was our tour guide Tobias! Very engaging , very funny, he even kept us longer time. We booked the tour for me and my friend and although nobody else had booked, they didnt cancel and we end up having a private tour!

Nice possibility to discover different parts of Berlin by bus as well as by boat. Perfect combo. If you speak several languages try to change language channels in the bus as you might get interesting facts not included in other language guide

Easy to find the meeting point Tobias knows his stuff Interesting to learn how Prenzlauer Berg changed through the centuries from poor neighbourhood to luxurious place to be

Friendly and helpful staff at all bus and boat stops.

A very good way to see Berlin and learn the history
