"Re: Sachsenhausen Tour conducted by Derek Before going to Berlin, I decided to avoid any tours which dealt with the Holocaust. Not because I wanted to bury my head in the sand, but rather after reading "
"Brian is the best tour guide ever! Even though we walked around in Berlin for 5-6 hours I didn't feel tired or bored one moment. Brian showed us Berlin in a fantastic way, what Berlin really is, with feeling and humor. So if you're going to Berlin, you just HAVE to take a tour like I did!! It is going to be, as it was for me, a memory of a lifetime! I'm really looking forward to the next time in Berlin!"
"Wow! The tour with Brian was so good. The knowledge, the real interest in Berlin, the love to us... Thank you."
"Just a short note to thank you for the exceptional tour we went on last Wednesday. Brian was a superb guide, informative and entertaining, and provided a fantastic, detailed overview of the history of such a fascinating city. Even took the time to go for a beer with us afterwards. Cheers!"
"Thank God we had Brian for our tour guide. Me and my wife have not only enjoyed our stay in Berlin but we learnt a lot too. Brian helped us to understand how Germans felt in each period of their history. He made our only three days visit, to last more. We thank all of you for the wonderful ideas and the nice programme.!!"
"Our tour guide Brian had such amazing chasima and passion for the city, and despite the tour lasting 4 hours+ i was engrossed from beginning to end. The city and its history is amazing, but mainly the way it was told by our guide - I would reccomend his tour to anybody. Give him a medal!"
"Chris was an excellent guide and in his own unique way made the tour amusing as well as informative. We would recommend Chris, and the tour in general, to all!"
"Nigel was a most excellent guide, able to finely tune his delivery to his audience. Extremely knowledegable, not only of the subject in hand, but of Berlin as a whole. He brought to life many aspects of Berlin in the 40s, in vivid detail, sparing no punches, but at the same time keeping a sense of proportion. Well done. Excellent stuff."
"Did the tour with Derek yesterday and felt inclined to comment immediately - absolutely amazing, has inspired me to want to learn more about German history and the city Derek loves and knows so well! Would/will recommend to anyone visiting Berlin! Thanks xx (PS. we think Derek resembles Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson!!)"
"The Third Reich tour was a great supplement to the famous Insiders Tour that we had already done - we're sorry we couldn't fit the Cold War tour in as well! Derek was a great guide with a comprehensive knowledge of the rise of the Nazis, WWII & everything in between. He was happy to take questions all the way through the tour as well, which was great. Whilst it is a fairly dark subject area, the tour was fabulous, & we'd recommend it to anyone staying in Berlin."
