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

A great tour with a very personable and knowledgeable guide who was able to answer all questions and had lots of background information. Even though we have been to Berlin many times, there was a lot of new information. Great weather, but even in glorious sunshine, Carlo always found a shady place where he told us everything. Thanks a lot for this! Highly recommended!

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.

The tour was very interesting and totally enjoyable!
