What people are saying about St Nicholas' Church Berlin

It was a great tour. Very private because I was the only participant I learned a lot of new things about the history of Berlin. The city guide was able to convey it well and you could feel his own enthusiasm when he talked about the history. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see Berlin from a different angle and would like to get impressions that you might not get

Our guide Holger gave us a lot of information in great detail about the role of Potsdam after the war and during the time of reunification. The story of the old Fritz and King Wilhem IV was not neglected either. Overall, a very professional guided tour through the history of Potsdam.

Fähige Führung mit super Wissen über Berlin, Berliner Geschichte und die Entwicklung von Berlin uns nah gebracht hat. Hervorragend. Kurzweilig. Competente guided tour. We learned about the history and development of Berlin. An amazing tour.

Carlo was very likeable, had an amazing knowledge + a huge enthusiasm for this topic. A super storyteller who even extended 40 minutes. We can warmly recommend the tour.
