"My sons and I visited Berlin in June 2008,with the aim of deepening our knowledge of the place that served for 12 terrible years, as the World Capital of Terror. I am a VIP guide at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem and my sons have visited the death camps in Poland and are well versed in the History of that sad period. We were all most impressed by Nigel's guiding on the Third Reich Tour. His deep knowledge of the Nazi era, his ability to use his sense of humour to lighten the burden of this difficult subject and, most of all, his sincerity in not glossing over the gory details, left us with the feeling that the visitors to Berlin are in good and responsible hands. Every good wish for your continued important work, Nigel and congratulations to Insider Tours for their rich programme of getting to know Berlin and its History."
"Hi Kenny, It has taken me a while to write you. I should start by saying we really enjoyed the tour last month with you. I'm noticing how so much of that information actually stuck in my head. I was to let you know when I'm doing a public event. Hhhhmm I should also reintroduce myself. I was (still am) the singer from LA but living in Berlin. I'll be doing a concert at Club Havanna. With a band called "JCB". That's on Okt. 7th. Let me know if you'd like to come I'll put you on the guest list. Thanks again for a great tour. Nina"
"Absolutely Fantastic, Kenny , Thank you , you saved me from sitting on a bus tour which would have lasted about an hour. Instead I thoroughly enjoyed a superb informative 4hr walk which will be remembered for a very very long time. value for money!!!??? you need to up the price :-) Cheers. Keep up the excellent work."
"That place, full of sadness, was so well presented by Nigel, as the details and history related to it. After the tour, it came up a feeling that I had visited a school, and taken an inspiring class."
"Kenny, you are a wonderful tour guide. I learned a ton about World War II history and got to see many of the sites too. Very knowledgable and friendly. Thank you!"
"If you're interested in an objective perspective on what happened in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, then this is the tour to take. Derek gave a most informative tour, giving you enough information to digest along the way, and yet it was never too much. Derek's research and knowledge made this a first rate tour that I recommend to anyone interested in understanding this period of history better. To actually walk on the soil where the events occurred, and experience this memorial can be a life-changing experience. I highly recommend this tour, and Derek. This day was a highlight of our Berlin trip. Thanks Derek."
"I had the infinite pleasure of having Nigel, for not only the Third Reich Tour, but was so impressed with his level of detail, enthusiasm, and good humour, that I specifically attended the Sachsenhausen Camp Tour the next day, due to the fact he was hosting it. When I am back in Berlin again next year, I will defintely be joining up on one of his Behind the Iron Curtain Tours."
"What a wonderful tour, with his depth of knowledge and experience, and endless good humour, Nigel made this the most rewarding and enjoyable tour I have been on. Keep up the good work Nigel!"
"Thank you for an amazing tour. Brian was fantastic. He is so passionate about Berlin and really made the tour an interesting and worthwhile part of our Berlin experience. We will recommed this tour to all our friends who come to Berlin. A big Thank you once again to Brian....he is fantastic!!"
"Nothing can bring a city to life like a good walking tour. Brian's tour of Berlin made me wish I could say "I am a Berliner", (not "I am a jelly-roll"). Bravo, Brian. I wish every city had such an outstanding ambassador."
