"Barnaby was briliant! We, including our 13 year old son, were enthralled for every minute of a four-hour tour on an unseasonaly freezing cold day. Barnaby perfectly set the story of the rise and fall of the Third Reich within the context of the City of Berlin without limiting it to Berlin. We loved the way his irony and sense of humour as well as his obvious love of Berlin came across. We would unreservedly recommend the tour. "
"My husband and I began our Berlin trip one sunny Sunday morning with an outstanding tour guide from Insider Tours. Our guide, Tarek, was clear, concise and affable. The four hour walking tour provided us with an historical overview and visits to key sites. As our multilingual guide also happened to be a working architect, his commentary on various buildings was illuminating. We couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to Berlin. "
"I just wanted to let everyone know what a delight Mike was during our Sachsenhausen tour. I was absolutely blown away with the amount of history and knowledge he knew, and how effortlessly he conveyed it to the group. I've traveled extensively throughout Europe and this tour has honestly been the best I have ever had the privilege of taking. Thank you so much Mike, you made my Berlin experience!"
"We were a group of eleven who visited Berlin for three days last weekend. Your company ruined our plans, particularly for our wives who were keen to do some shopping and 'light' sightseeing. You are also responsible for us returning home completely knackered and not in the reaxed manner after a usual break. We decided to meet your guides on friday morning and took the famous Berlin tour. We were introduced to Mike, a young New Zealander - what could he know that would interest us? Well, it turned out to be the most informative and enjoyable day. Some of our party have a fair knowledge of WW2 and the Cold War, but Mike was quite excellent. We decided to return the next day and visit Sachsenhausen, this time with Michael. Another brilliant but sombre day, far removed from the jolly shopping trip envisaged. Both Mike and Michael left us with more questions, which we need to research a little. This a confirmation of their passion for the subject and make no mistake, they are both great teachers - not just tour guides. We would ask you to pass on our best wishes and perhaps point out that what they are doing is really quite important. The ability to inform and educate us about Germany's history (particularly since 1933) is relevant to how we all proceed in the future."
"Despite the cold, Barnaby, our guide gave us a realistic and unique insight into this part of German history while putting buildings and streets on our tour into context and showing us postcards of how some of the buildings looked like at the time or post war. An immensely enjoyable tour.....Highly recommended!!! Best thing we did in Berlin!"
"The weather was very cold and quite wet, yet Michael was clear, factual, interesting and entertaining. We would highly recommend Michael as a great guide."
"It may have been raining most of the 4 hours of our tour but it certainly didn't dampen the enthusiasm of Barnaby nor of the group - we just wanted to keep going and hear more! He really knows Berlin and how to get across the information but not just as bare facts but in a really entertaining way. Very passionate about his subject and keen to make sure we got to grips with the history of both Germany and Berlin. Thanks Barnaby. A great tour!"
"Just want to say how much I enjoyed today's tour with Michael. Michael is a unique guide who makes the subject of the Third Reich both interesting and informative. On our tour, he went far beyond putting names to buildings from the Third Reich period, but went the extra mile to put 12 years of history into its proper context. As Michael's profile says, his tours overrun - but as I found out today, that is only a good thing. You are in good hands if you go on a tour with Michael. "
"Very informative and moving tour, not a question that Mike coudnt answer in great and interesting detail! Mikes enthusiasm and passion for the history is infectious! Cant wait for my next tour! Thanks Mike! "
"We did the Famous Insider Walk on 7th November with Jamie and found it incredibly informative, interesting and fun.Even our 10 year was captivated for the full 4 plus hours. We all came away really enthused with the experience. An excellent tour and guide, definately recommended."
