"We have travelled extensively through Europe and Mike was one of the finest guides we have ever had. He speaks perfect English, knows the history intimately, is very friendly and easy to be with, and does an incredibly thorough job. He is also outstaning with 14 year old kids! On a scale of ten, we give Mike a 20."
"My very best compliments are hereby sent to Michael from London with whom I was lucky to be guided around in Sachsenhausen with last saturday. His level of knowledge coupled with a friendly attitude and a good pedagogic sense lead us through a freezing day in a magnificant way. Best regards Harald G. Sunde, Festung Kirkenes, Norwegen "
"I would (and do!) recommend this tour to anyone-our tour guide Mike was absolutely brilliant and despite the constant rain, never failed to provide us with an enormous amount of info with lots of enthusiasm! He was extremely helpful and even provided me with a list of interesting books and films about European history. If you've any interest in history at all you should definitely do this tour-also amazing value for money!"
"Just got back from a brilliant trip to Berlin - highlight of which as guided walk by the excellent and knowledgable Barnaby. If his music making is as good as his tour guiding, then he should be a rich & famous rock star! "
"This tour was absolutely brilliant and Michael is the best guide we've ever had. He made the tour memorable with humor, extensive knowledge and his passion was obvious. Our tour ran over time, but not one person from our group of 26 was eager to finish. We were all enthralled. Thanks Michael!!"
"We really enjoyed this tour. Jamie is one of the best guides we have ever had - and we've been on a lot of city tours around Europe! He was knowledgable and entertaining and really gave us a great overview of this interesting city. I would highly recommend! "
"On Friday the 7th of January 2011, our eyes and ears were resonating to the sights and sounds of Berlin's History. Imaginations flooded by Germanic tribes settling the wide flood plains, Pompous King's, prince's and Arch Duke's Scheme's of conquest and bullying and of a village rising like a Phoenix, time and again from the ashes of conquest and war and all before my first sneaky sandwich, on this epic five hour Fabulous tour with Michael. On such a cold day, we were warmed by the enthusiasm, passion and knowledge imparted by Michael on this tour, his energy flowed, like our mind's as he tore his way through, Berlin and German history, at times not unlike an actor treading the boards of any Shakesperean theatre. You will be Impressed and left wanting to learn more about this wonderful, tragic and at bygone times brutal city.(it's a must of a tour). Wishing you all the best Michael, From a Fellow Guardsman."
"It was a great experience at a depressing site. Nigel is incredibly knowlegeable and made the tour. The best tourguide i have ever come across. Thank you. "
"My husband and son accompanied me on this tour. Despite the freezing cold conditions it was a brilliant tour, we learnt so much from our guide Nigel, and I would recommend Nigel as a guide for anyone interested in taking an Insider Tour in Berlin. Thank you Nigel."
"Despite the cold (although not that cold, according to him) and - shall we say - challenging walking conditions, Barnaby's enthusiasm and good humour shone through. An excellent tour, rich in historical detail and presented with a genuine affection and knowledge of the subject. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough."
