"I had to write to let you know that the tour day we had with Derek was one of the best and most informative days we have ever had. Thank you again- wish we were still exploring Berlin!"
"Derek is a very knowlegable and professional tour guide. Derek is still the only person I have ever met that didn't look at me sideways when I said 'Berlin is one of my favorite cities'. It is this passion for Berlin and it's unique history that makes him an effective guide. I was sure to pepper him with questions on the walk between sites and he was very accomodating in giving me all the information I could handle. Derek was professional, passionate, and (for a Canadian) humorous. When in Berlin, I will again look up Insider Tours. Job well done Derek!"
"To the manager, I am just writing on behalf of myself and all the students and staff from QEH Bristol who recently had the pleasure of a guided tour of Berlin with your guide Mike from New Zealand. He was enormously enthusiastic, well informed and good humoured and really brought the history of the city to life. Please thank him again on our behalf and give him a pay rise! We will certainly use your company again and recommend you to other visitors. Yours sincerely Joe Martin Head of History QEH Bristol BS81JX"
"Had a bike tour with Mike and the only bad thing i could say is that throughout the rest of my trip in Europe i have compared every other tour guide to him and consequently havent enjoyed them nearly as much."
"Derek's detailed knowledge of various points of Berlin's history was very impressive. He made the tour fun, captivating and kept it real. He was also very helpful when asked other questions about the city. I'll recommend this tour to any one visiting Berlin!"
"Thanks for the great bike tour and much fun pub crawl. It was my first pub crawl and I had a blast :-)"
"Just like to say how much me and my wife enoyed the tour with Kenny who is a superb guide. Informative,witty and always very helpful,this is the best tour i have ever done in any city and worth every penny. Well done kenny and thanks very much for the restaurant tip as well at the end of the tour."
"Derek was by far the most insightful, interesting, and witty tour guide that I've ever come across, and that's saying quite a bit as I've taken quite a few. He not only knew his stuff, but was also so passionate and compelling in the way that he spoke about Berlin and its history. We were lucky to have such a knowledgeable person take us through a city with such a rich and complex history right from the swap of Berlin right through to it's present and future. If you happen to take the same tour and Derek is your guide, you're in for one of the most memorable days of your life. Thank you Derek, and it's always nice to have meet a fellow Maple Leafs fan, especially so far from home! You rock. Sincerely, Scott Robinson London, Ontario Canada"
"I did the Third Reich tour on Saturday and just wanted to say it was brilliant! Derek was great and informative, Me, my bro and dad are sorry we didnt leave a tip. Cheers Derek! Ash"
