"Our tour guide Tarek was fascinating! His knowledge-not only of Germany's history, but world history! Tarek's in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm for history, art and culture has inspired us to do more reading once back home. We were privileged to have had Tarek as our guide!"
"As someone with experience in organising and delivering tours, I can say with great enthusiasm that this is the best tour I have ever been on. This tour can be enjoyed by ANYONE! Brian's delivery was such that he tailored his presentation of this magnificent city to suit his audience through thoughtful consideration of age, sex, and, most importantly, cultural background of his guests. The knowledge of the tour guide was outstanding and, yet, his delivery was such that I didn't experience (and my fellow companions on the tour felt the same) we weren't "white walled" (overwhelmed) with information. This tour was also presented in such a way so there was plenty of time to rest your legs, enjoy a coffee and get to meet people. As a first time traveller overseas, I enjoyed the opportunity of meeting people from all across the world and, admittedly, our conversations did end up turning into an impromptu pub-crawl (obviously not an official part of the tour and was initiated by the guests). There is something on this tour for everyone. Finally, I would like to pass on my personal compliments to Brian. As an introduction to international travel and, obviously, Berlin, I don't think I could have had a better experience. Thank you. I wish you that all your guests enjoy the tour as much as I did!"
"Wow what can i say about this insider tour with Brian. This experience has left myself and my daughter with a long lasting impression of both Brian and Berlin. Brian is a gem of a man and is such a credit to himself and your company. As someone who has never been to Berlin it was awe inspiring to spend a day with Brian who obviously has so much love for the city of Berlin. Brian was a genius with thoughtful insights and provoked so much emotion within himself and the people on the tour. I highly recommend this tour and your company to anyone who is coming to Berlin for a visit. I just wish we both could have followed him to the pub after the tour had finished but we had to get to a concert at Wuhlheide Park. So please pass on my apologies to Brian "
"What a tour and what a tour guide! This city is so fascinating and overwhelming and Brian's passion for and knowledge of the city not only helped me to wade through the incredible history, but made me fall in love with Berlin and more in love with the country! The way he told the stories made me feel I was right there during the events that he spoke of; it came so vividly in my mind. With his energy, passion, and humor I couldn't help but listen with no less than awe and at times, sadness. Thanks so much Brian, it was truly an experience!"
"Simplesmente admirável e estupendo! Brian não é um qualquer guia. É o GUIA de Berlim. Ama aquilo que faz e faz-nos amar Berlim. Cativa-nos e as horas com ele passam a correr. A história de Berlim é passada como se estivessemos dentro de um filme-o filme dirigido por Brian. ADORÁMOS. Obrigada Brian e até sempre."
"Excellent tour guide! The Best sight seeing experience I have had so far. Very knowledgeable, passionate and articulate. Thank you Brian! "
"Having a really bad day, aimlessly roaming around the Hackescher Markt, I saw this tour set to start in 5 minutes! I bought a ticket not really expecting much, specially when we turned out to be around 35 people. I proved myself very wrong as Barnaby was very knowledgeable about the subject and was able to deliver the facts, historical background, stories in all the places we visited with such elan, that I still remember them up to this day. I particularly liked the explanation (take note: with diagram!!) of how Germany, esp. Berlin was divided, it contributed to my better understanding. Also, Barnaby was so attentive, one would not feel that it's a big group at all. It was like a personal tour! I enjoyed it so much and it brightened up my day. During the entire tour, everyone was encourage to ask any questions, tips on museums, bars, restuarants -- anything under the sun! I've been to many tours in different cities, but I would rank this one among my top 5 and would recommended it anytime. I would have loved to do other insider tours after this one, unfortunately it was my last day in Berlin. I'll defintely sign-up when I find myself again in Berlin."
"We loved the tour with Brian a 4 hour tour that turned into 7 hours. He was full of energy, interesting, passionate and loved his work. Best tour ever! We will remember it for years. Thankyou"
"Brilliant walk and talk. What knowledge ... thanks so much."
"Totally brilliant. Amazing knowledge and breadth of thought."
