A MUST-DO for History Lovers!

I'm a Global History teacher and learned SO much from this tour. Paul was an AMAZING guide! He was organized, interesting and knowledgeable - not to mention friendly and great company. He was very accomodating to my specific interests regarding the Cold War and the Berlin Wall. I would say this tour is a must-do if you are interested in history and gaining an understanding of Berlin's role in it. Oh, and there's a tasty donut & coffee break!

Our guide was excellent. Learned a lot about life under East Berlin which is had only seen in 1968 and 1972 on the very structured East Berlin tour. I would recommend to anyone who wants to understand more about life on the other side and the transition to one Berlin.

Fab Tour by Francisco!

Francisco was our guide. He made the experience exciting because he was so passionate, knowledgeable and full of information about the Cold War. He explained clearly what was going to happen, how long we had at stops and lots of extra information. He also showed interest in all the group asking where we had come from/ where was home. This experience gives a whistle stop tour of key sites in Cold War history. We went back to explore further on another day. Francisco provided excellent additional information like the titles of films related to the cold war
