Structured and very informative tour in a pleasant atmosphere. The guide promptly responded to questions and incorporated the answers perfectly into his schedule. Many stations were illustrated and made understandable with large-format historical pictures. The selection of the individual stations was very good and we came to places that we would certainly not have looked for or found ourselves - gladly again!

We did this tour with 7 older women. Our concern that 2.5 hours might be too long was completely unfounded. Our young guide Holger was very competent and authentic. He always answered our questions. Through his personal family history, he allowed us to be a very lively part of this difficult time. We would book a private tour with Holger again at any time.

Very exciting and informative tour - there are also a lot of interesting facts for Berliners. Many thanks to our great guide - despite the heat: cool!!!

A really great guide!!! Super great experience with a lot of information that was new even for a Berliner. Absolutely recommendable!

Competent and entertaining guide. Good answers to all questions.
