"We were a group of eighteen and spent two days with Nigel. He is an amazing guide with vast experience and knowledge. This made our two days of education and sightseeing wonderful. We were all tired the first day after an overnight flight from Canada and the USA. He was able to rivet our attention and threw humor in at just the right moments. We would highly recommend Nigel to anyone looking for a guide."
"This is the second time in less than a year I've taken the Famous Insider Walk tour. First time I was traveling solo. I had 12 hours in Berlin and the tour was an excellent way to experience the city for the first time. Had Tarek as my guide and he was fantastic as I wrote a year ago. This time around I was with my husband and teenage daughter and was hoping to have Tarek again since I was raving about him to my family. Happy to report we lucked out with him again! Tarek is very knowledgeable and we can listen to his stories for hours. I loved hearing things for the second time and my family thoroughly enjoyed the tour as well. Insider tours are a great way to experience Berlin and Tarek is one of the best tour guides I've experienced over my many years. We look forward to visiting Berlin again and hope to take another Insider Tour with Tarek as our guide. Thank you Insider Tours!"
"I just want to say we had the most amazing tour with Barnaby on Friday. He is witty, erudite and insightful. There wasn't a dull moment and he was able to simplify complex political history whilst keeping it interesting for the whole group. Thank you! Best wishes form London, Delanie "
"Ingrid wrote this for TripAdvisor reviews: "Yesterday Roy gave a tour of Cold War Berlin. He is both very knowledgeable and excels at keeping your interest. His depth of understanding of German history and language is impressive. I would recommend him and this tour to anyone coming to visit Berlin. You travel around the city and stop and walk to unusual sites. I am going back to take another tour and looking for him." But also Roy asked for feedback. I particularly liked the kind and diplomatic way he handled the elderly woman who could not come to the point with her questions. Also, it is so interesting to see current events (I about read them at the time) become "history", with the explanation and insights, the motivations of the actors made vivid (distinct from the "official statements" at the time dutifully reported by the news reporters). "
"We were lucky to have Tarek as our guide The way he tells and presents Berlin and Germany's history and culture is exceptional .He opened our eyes to details we would have missed or never understood without him .He is the top guide if you want to see the real Berlin "
"Excellent guide. Enjoyed the tour. Conveyed the information and history in a very interesting way. "
"Excellent guide. Enjoyable and informative tour. Alex had the energy and ability to make the tour interesting and fun."
"We visited Sachsenhausen concentration camp as part of a history fieldtrip and I honestly could have spent all day there. Our guide Cesar is very informed enthusiastic guide. Thank you, Cesar, for putting so much energy on it and explaining everything to the group. I would thoroughly recommend visiting Sachsenhausen. You cannot believe what you are seeing as you walk around, it is truly terrible. The different areas within the site really get you thinking."
"Michael,our tour guide, was perfect for this tour. He was very knowledgeable and respectful of everyone on the tour. It was a great way to see the camp without doing the typical museum route and just reading sign after sign. Strongly recommend this tour as it really gives you insight into what happened at this, and several other, sites- hopefully you get Michael too!"
"We had an amazing day at Sachenhausen Concentration Camp. Nigel was articulate, exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly & a lot of fun. He had so many stories to recount which he did with respect and sensitivity so that we never forgot for a moment the awful events that took place there. I learned so much on that day & have continued to read even more now that I am home. I would highly recommend a tour with Nigel :-))"
