"From my first impression..I knew it was going to be a memorable event. Nigel is no shrinking violet and what a laugh. He puts everyone at ease and delivers a first rate narrative. His subject knowledge seems endless and its clear he is very capable historian. His tour was conducted with pure professionalsim . compassion and great respect for all. First class. Go on any of the tours and you will be given an experience well worth the money but ...worth far more that that!. "
"First class delivery from a man who not only has the knowledge but the passion to deliver it. Not forgetting a great sense of humour as well. Having an interest is 20th centuray history myself Mike's finite knowledge of this period and his ability to explain any questions put to him left me wanting to repeat this experience...so I did.Insider tours use guides who have high level academic knowledge of what they are talking about. Highly recommended . Also for the Third Reich Tour as well! "
"The best tour ever. What a difference a good and enthusiastic guide can make. I just had one day in Berlin, and being passionate about history, I was lucky to get Mike as a guide. History and information made palatable during a 4 hour walk. Time just passed by. Congratulations."
"Nigel devoted at least 6 hours of his time to a small group of tourists who hung on his every word. His passion for the history of the city kept us going, and our questions and curiosity gave him the energy to keep going. Nigel gave my family, especially our 13 year-old son, an unforgettable insight into a haunted city. We are grateful and will always remember this day."
"We were truly abuzz after our tour with Derek. His wealth of knowledge on both the history of Berlin, along with what makes Berlin great today was sensational. His accounts were extremely well delivered and I was also impressed that he openly discussed any topic asked of him. Would certainly recommend to friends and he has certainly helped us move Berlin to the top of our list of possible places to move to in Europe"
"Hello! I would like to express the grattitude to Renate for her good job. We have a great time during the tour. She speaks perfect Spanish and she explained each detail perfectly. We will recommend this tour and the others to everybody. Thanks Marta "
"Having arrived in a dreary looking Berlin on the Thursday, We began to wonder whether it had been a good location to celebrate Cathy's 50th. Fortunately, Lauren 'leather boots lover' Towers worked her magic in Friday's sunshine to regale us of the famous Berlin sights and the ubiquitous Herr Schinkel's buildings. Wow, we thought, these Insider tours are damned good; consequently, we took up Lauren's offer of tickets for the 3rd Reich Tour and the Sachsenhausen tour. Enter Mike, the kiwi gyroscope who just kept on spinning tremendously detailed tales of the Nazis' 3rd Reich, replete with full body movement. There was no stopping Mike, even five and a half hours later - the utter professional kept coaxing us along to ensure that we were able to absorb every detail of his favourite subject. All those hours later, he looked fresh as a daisy - he just loves the subject, so much so that he married a 'subject', a madchen from the former E Berlin (just to get the full picture you understand)! Don't miss this man, he's the ultimate professional!"
"Shalom, We have just returned to Israel after spending an amazing week in Berlin. One of the highlights of our holiday was undoubtedly the tour to Dresden which we took with Insider Tours last Sunday (12th October). In particular we would like to thank our amazing guide Nadav who was an outstanding source of information and general knowledge about the subject matter as well as a very pleasant companion for the ten hour trip. We should also like to mention the driver (whose name we cannot remember) who drove the bus with expertise. Please convey our sincere thanks and best wishes to Nadav! We will be delighted to recommend your tours to friends. Yours sincerely, Ruth & Nachum Sobol"
"Fascinating tour. Really enjoyed it. Derek was brilliant, really informative. Graet guide. Thanks Derek. Will highly reccomend this tour to all I know."
"Francis, We are back home from our trip, and just had a little time to drop a few lines. We truly enjoyed our walking tour, Mike was a wonderful guide. He is very knowledgeable and charming, I will come back next year with my husband to take the same tour with Mike. Thanks, Gabriela Ungo"
