    The tour was amazing. The guide knew so much about gay culture of Berlin and he could also answer all the questions I had. It was simply amazing and very very interesting. I can recommend the tour to anybody who is interested in getting to know very interesting facts about the city.

    Loved learning about how important the LGBT community is in Berlin

    Our tour guide Johan, was so friendly and passionate about the history of the culture and allowed me to learn a lot about the past and present presence the LGBT community had/have in Berlin. It was very fascinating and what topped it off was he brought his dog too. She was lovely and so well behaved. Highly recommend!
