"What a way to spend my 40th birthday! Mike had tonnes of passion and enthusiasm ... why weren't my teachers like this at school, I might have been more interested :-) Now I am home I feel the need to read more about Berlin's/Germany's history. My husband and I, and kids, can't wait to come back. It was lovely to meet you, thanks Mike from Jillian, Andrew, Jason and Ewan in Wigan, Lancashire, UK."
"Nigel's tour out to Sachsenhausen was absolutely fantastic! To hear his stories about the people he's met who were actually living and working in the camp was something you just can't get from a book or TV. Nigel's experience from seeing Berlin go through many changes is very insightful and a MUST if you visit Berlin. Thanks Nigel ps. He also knows the great local pubs to go to."
"This was a fantastic tour with a fantastic tour guide!!!"
"From the moment you meet Nigel you know that your tour with him will be special. One immediately warms to his eloquence, knowledge and humour. As a guide he has that rare ability to relate to all age groups and he definitely made us all feel valued. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this tour was the caring and respectful way Nigel presented and talked about life for the occupants of the Camp. It would have been easy to fall into the trap of over-dramtising Sachesenhausen, but we had nothing but admiration for the way Nigel conducted himself. To complete the day we were invited to enjoy a drink and sit in awe at Nigel's social skills, storytelling and banter that flowed effortlessly as he recounted his life experiences. Insider Tours you should consider yourselves very lucky to have this man working with you; do not lose him."
"In all our years of travelling we have never before met a tour guide who was able to enthrall an audience as Nigel did on our visit to Sachsenhausen. His knowledge was positively encyclopaedic, and his delivery was such that our visit was made the more chillingly atmospheric. The weather on the day was utterly appalling - freezing cold and with rain like stair rods, but did this dampen Nigel's enthusiam? - not a bit of it! Without doubt this was the highlight of our visit to this incredible city, and I would unreservedly recommend this tour to anyone."
"Thank you Nigel Dunkley for a most wonderful experience of a most horrible place. The time spent with you and a delightful group of frost bitten tourists in Sachsenhausen, will remain with us for a long time. It is rare to come across such a knowledgeable, charming, witty, erudite, package that is Nigel. We hope that anyone reading this, will be tempted to search him out and spend a day soaking up all he has to offer. Thanks again, best wishes, Donal & Una Mc Cormack."
"Many thanks to Derek for making our trip to Berlin interesting, witty and so pleasant, even in freezing conditions!! His depth of knowledge is wonderful and his charm is delightful. I hope anyone else from Ireland, who intends to spend, even a day in Berlin, checks this guy out. Best wishes, Donal & Una Mc Cormack."
"Brilliant!! I really enjoyed this fascinating tour despite the cold. Tamar added some real warmth and energy to the tour, she obviously knows her stuff and delivered the information with real feeling. I was so impressed by the quality of the tours provided by this company, we had done the general tour the day before too. Excellent value for money and I will definitely use this company and hopefully Tamar next time we visit"
"Took the Third Reich tour with Nigel Dunkley at the weekend and I have to say as a teacher and historian myself I have never witnessed such a fascinating, masterful, scholarly and riveting account of so many diverse aspects of the Hitler's reign of terror. Nigel is an absolute gem and a wonderfully gifted historian and raconteur. We saw him on the Travel Channel with Tony Bourdain back home in NYC just before we departed and thought his humor was awesome! Imagine our surprise and delight when we realised it was the very same wonderful personality taking us on our tour! Outstanding experience and one we wont ever forget. Raising a glass of Bourbon Scotch to you Nigel."
"We are 3 Indonesians working in Switzerland and unbelievably wanted to see the great city of Berlin in one day!! Luckily we found this Famous Insider Walking Tour! And with Mike (surprisingly he's a Kiwi) as our incredible tour guide... we unbelievably believe we've fulfilled our goal!! Thanks Mike for such great energy, enthusiasm and passion... never had a guide like you ever! It was really great having you guiding us that Saturday... We would certainly recommend our friends to join this tour and especially with Mike!!! Best regards and wishes! Terima Kasih :-)"
