Jason was a great guide, very entertaining and kept us laughing throughout. He was really informative and threw in some personal anecdotes along the way. We saw areas of Berlin we probably would not have seen if not for the tour.

English Comedy Ticket including Pizza in Berlin Mitte
Neil was an excellent MC who kept things moving along with his material between each comedians set time and ensured that they stayed within the allotted time. Pizza was great and the shot was smooth - a nice surprise. The line up of comedians was impressive and none of them were bad. Interesting perspective offered by all the comedians who are not originally from Berlin. Other reviewers have pointed out that the folding chairs are old and need to be replaced.

T he guide was excellent.She gave us very detailed information about the three districts we visited.What I like most is that we were taken to places that the ordinary tourist is not able to discover bythemselves. I highly recommend this tour to eveyone who is interested in getting the feeling of how different cultures interect in Berlin.

Ok, Not really my Tour - I purchased this for my daughter as she did not want to do the trip to Sachsenhausen. She enjoyed it immensely, and by all accounts had a great time (you know it's not easy to pry this sort of Info. out of your Offspring. ) SO, if it was good enough for her I can only recommend it as worth doing.

Good way to explore Berlin. The guide pointed out a lot of cool places that are not covered by other tours (e.g., flea markets, beer gardens) and was very informative about street art. The tour is a bit long and could have edited some of the Friedrichshain stops.

Berlin Off-the-Beaten-Path Walking Tour: Kreuzberg, Mitte and Friedrichshain
This was a great tour to compliment a classic war monuments tour the day before. It focussed on post cold war Berlin and brought us to many new neighbourhoods we wouldn't have otherwise seen. While we saw some street art, this was not the main focus of the tour. Our guide, Callum, was originally from Scotland but had lived in Berlin for a while and was passionate about the city. My 20 year old son and I both really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.

When to Get There

Travelers have plenty to do in Mitte, day or night, depending on activity and interest. In general, the best time to visit Berlin is the spring (though it’s quite rainy, especially in May and June) and the summer month, especially for the legendary Love parade in July. Rates are lower in the fall and winter when temperatures drop.

Don’t Miss “old” Berlin in Nikolaiviertel Underneath the GDR-era TV Tower in Mitte is the earliest settlement of Berlin, dating back to 1200, and a tiny place of fascination. After the heavy bombing of World War II, Nikolaiviertel was in dire straits like the rest of the city. But in 1979, faithfully restored the little charming buildings and cobblestone streets to their original state.
