"Just a quick line to say a massive thanks to Barnaby for making our 4 hour walking tour pass in an instant. Barnaby was without doubt the best guide and tour host we have ever had on our group outings, a real credit to your company. Would recommend him to anyone interested in finding out more about Berlin. Thanks again Alasdair"
"Easily the highlight if our 3 day Berlin experience. Derek is a very good guide, never stumbling across words, straight and to the point. I do agree with others that the tour can feel a bit rushed. but the 6 hours that it does last go by quickly, and we didn't want it to end. The information provided was excellent, sheds a whole new light on concentration camps. The barracks were especially frightening. "
"Had we gone there on our own, Sachsenhausen would have come across as little more than a collection of old and reconstructed barracks, memorials in photos and markers and a bookshop with interesting books about the Third Reich and the Holocaust that might be hard to come by elsewhere. Derek made the ghosts of the tortured times whisper to us of dreams destroyed, mania beyond measure, faith and courage in the face of relentless adversity, and much more that only an Insider could have fleshed out in so much detail. Yet the tour felt rushed, for there was so much to tell of not just the years that the place existed as a Nazi camp, but also of how it was used later by the Communists. We came back awed and humbled, and with muted screams echoing through our thoughts. "
"I fell in love with Berlin in the 5 days i was there,but mostly because of the tours you have to offer.I did the Insider walk Tour on the Friday with Michael and because i had such a great time and learnt so much i ended up doing The Third Reich Tour on the Saturday and had Michael as the guide again.He is brilliant,funny and well prepared and his knowledge of history was remarkable. Thanks again for a great trip around Berlin"

Danke "
"Jessy is incredibly enthusiastic about the city and it's history and this is incredibly infectious when spending time with her! Jessy made the tour fun and i'd recommend insider tours as a result! Jessy also gave lots of tips about things to do in the city and good places to eat etc which really added to our holday."
"Attended this visit with 3 collegues during a Berlin 4 day visit. Jessy was really informative and really showed her knowledge on the subject. She gave some good insights and added her personal knowledge during the visit. A great day out thoroughly enjoyed our time with her."
"We joined the Sachenhausen tour with Mike and found his knowledge, passion and infectious enthusiasm for his subject so inspiring we came back for the Third Reich tour the next day to find he was running that one as well. Lucky us! He's a fantastic guide to the amazing 20th century history of Berlin and our experience with him made our visit to the whole city. I can't recommend Mike or Insider Tours highly enough. When you're on his tours remember to ask for the jokes - especially the one about the 0 and the 8. Well done mate. Keep up the great work!"
"I actually live in Berlin but I needed to get to know Potsdam better for work-related reasons. So I just signed up for the insider tour on a lovely Sunday - it was definitely worth its salt. Tarek was super nice. From the beginning, I felt that he does not only enjoy showing people around but also cares about personal needs. He wants each group member to benefit from the trip. I also like that he does not only know his subject but that his general enthusiasm for history and knowledge of architecture shine. In 6 hours you won't be struck by information but you learn and see a lot. Besides, inspiring people like Tarek show you why Berlin has become such a cool place! "
"I only had a few days in Berlin (certainly not enough) but managed to squeeze in a walking tour - luckily I did. Even though the weather was miserable the tour was fantastic. Michael is one of the best tour guides I have come across. His knowledge and passion for Berlin was infectious. Thank you Michael and Insider Tours. A highlight of my European adventure!"
