"Outstanding tour! My daughter and I were very impressed with Michael's indepth knowledge, his professionalism and general demeanor. Both my daughter and I are not new to this subject, but Michael told us a myriad of things we did not know. I highly recommend this tour, and I would take it again."
"Maria was a fantastic guide for this somber tour. She was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the camp from WWII through to the Soviet work camp years. I highly recommend this tour with her!"
"On the day we did this tour it was extremely cold with a bitter wind but Barry kept us interested with his informative talks on the various locations we visited, which he delivered in a dry and witty way. Despite the weather we both enjoyed the walk and Barry's delivery. "
"The best walk we have ever done. Brian was the best tour guide - intelligent, fun and went beyond the call of duty. Our group continued on for a drink and then dinner and we all had a wonderful time thanks to Brian."
"Baranby has an amazing level of depth to his knowledge of all things Berlin. His enthusiasm really rubbed off on our group which consisted of about 10 people on Sunday morning the 4th November. Being able to visit and touch the iron curtain made Baraby’s talk really come alive. I cannot recommend him highly enough, he was bril. Thanks Barnaby."
"Awesome tour and our guide Mike S. was amazing! He was animated, very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to our entire group of over 25 people from various countries. 4 hours went by, we weren't tired or rushed; felt like we just re-lived history of Berlin! Highly recommended."
"I highly recommend this tour for any ones first day in Berlin. A wet and cold day flew by as we listened to Barry. He made us laugh, he made us think. The information was clear and concise and also entertaining. Thank you Barry and Insider Tours for a great introduction to Berlin."
"Fantastic tour and Mike was brilliant Such enthusiasm and knowledge. Best way to spend 4 hours"
"We were in Berlin for just a few days and this was a perfect introduction. Michael was warm, funny, knowledgeable and passionate about Berlin. The tour was great value for money, and we will definitely recommend him and his tour to friends, and look him up on future visits."
"Walking Berlin with Barry...I did not think wandering the streets of Berlin in near freezing damp for nearly five hours could be so much fun. It started with Barry, the blonde Irishman, who after studying Law and French decided that Germany and Sociology was his true passion. He brought warmth and humour to an exploration of Berlin that offered insights into how Germany and the World work. The German ‘how to run a country’ manual has had more rewrites in its energetic history. It started with Hohenzollerns moving to the marshes of Berlin in the 15th century so they could be a ‘big fish in a small pond’ and traversed Friedrich Wilhelm, the Great Elector who in his Edict of Potsdam in the 17th century that brought a new era of religious tolerance. It traced Prussia’s volatile 19th century as it played serious ‘catch up’ with the established empires of the day culminating in beating the French in 1870 and establishing the first German Reich. But the promise of Germany was shattered in quick succession with a disastrous WW1, the Weimar Republic, the rise of the Nazi, a disastrous WW2, the Soviet split of the country. The fall of the Wall and German reunification in 1989 offers new hope. It was all on Barry’s tour, and absolutely a great valued experience, 4c for every insightful minute. "
