Hello everyone, this tour surprised us positively. We did not know exactly whether we would really be interested in a tour of Berlin's inner courtyards. The tour takes place at the Hackeschenhöfe. Our guide was extremely talkative, but was not even exhausted. We had a lot of extra questions, which he answered easily and enthusiastically. Therefore our tour was 2.5 hours instead of the scheduled 2. Even as a Berliner, this tour was very interesting and surprising. We can recommend this tour.

Eine sehr interessante und informative Tour, die auch demjenigen Neues bietet, der z.B. die Hackeschen Höfe schon kennt. Wir wurden überaus freundlich und kompetent geführt und haben viele kleine Geschichten auch am 'Wegesrand' erfahren. Durch die frische Art des Tourbegleiters gab es keinen Moment der Langeweile und die Zeit verging wie im Flug. Gern wären wir noch weiter durch die Höfe gezogen. Die Innenhöfe-Privat-Tour können wir uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
