"What a wonderful tour! It was the most informative and entertaining tour, especially for a day tour! The children were intrigued and interested the whole time too! I highly, highly recommend Insider Tours! Brian had us laughing and crying as we relived history. He made me fall in love with his city."
"My first time in Germany and happy to be on the best tour I have ever been on! Brian has an unbelievable knowledge of Berlin history and also the Nazi era. He also was incredibly helpful to everyone on the tour, giving advice relating to other sites to go and see. I would recommend this tour company to anyone. They are amazingly well organised and the guides incredibly interesting. "
"We only had one day in Berlin and hit the jackpot ending up on a tour with Brian. He took us on a walk that had us feeling the horror of Hitlers Germany and then the sadness of a people divided by the Berlin Wall. However his enthusiasm and cheeky sense of humour prevented the day from becoming overwhelming. He made each person on the tour feel special (or not so special :) We walked for 7 hous and only one or two dropped out of our group of about 15 people. Brian had us gripped. His stories made Berlin come alive. I felt sorry for the poor people we saw on the hop on hop off bus tours during our walk (how boring). My advice if you want to see, feel, and understand Berlin and its history find Brian and go on the ride."
"Tarek provided a cogent technical explanation of the development of perspective in art, and a concise easy to follow history of the period, but what made his narrative especially educational was the way he embedded the art in the cultural, historical, and religious milieu as we moved from about 1300 to well into the 1500's. We veered off into politics and sociology, and covered not only the Masters I was interested in but also some of 20th century German art, which again let to a discussion of art as a reflection of the culture and times in which it is produced. Absolutely fascinating discussion, I learned a great deal, which is exactly what I wanted to do. Thank you so much - Julia Nufer, Ph.D."
"We had a great walking tour with Michael in Berlin. It was our first of its kind and was thoroughly informative and enjoyable. Thanks for sharing so much knowledge with us, it really added a huge amount to our time in Berlin (and Europe!). Cameron & Loren from NZ"
"The interest for the tour was so large that it had to be split in two. Another guide was organised and I decided to join that group. The tour was very interesting despite the sensitive and difficult subject of it. Nigel has a fantastic skill to bring it across so 'lively and almost real that you feel like one travels back in time. I recommend the tour with Nigel as he is a very friendly guide who makes this tour worth it! "
"I had Derek as my guide for The Famous Walk, The Third Reich and Sachsenhausen. In short he was great. Very knowledgeable, personable and a great guide. I would highly recommend Insider as incredible value for money, brilliant knowledge and that personal touch which makes your trip special. Thanks Derek hope to visit Berlin again soon."
"Wow, is all I can say about this tour and the guide, Brian. This was the best tour I have ever been on (and I have been on a few). Brian’s attention to detail and his passion for Berlin and her history was just unfathomable!!! I gathered more information on this tour in 6 hours, than I did in a whole year at high school. Honestly, I was enthralled listening to Brian with his little anecdotes, jokes and jibes at people in the group, the GDR and just generally entertaining the crowd of people all listening intently to his stories. Brian was so passionate about Berlin, you are lucky to have such a person work for you. He was an absolutely pleasure to walk about Berlin with and I hope I get to meet him again soon. Please, please, treat him well. I will be spreading the word about how impressed and amazed I was at the information I learned about Berlin through Brian and his awesome and intriguing stories on this fantastic city!! Thank you Brian and Insider Tours!! Claire Perth, Australia"
"This was the best tour I've ever been on! Brian our guide, was a wealth of knowledge! He was so interesting and passionate about Berlin and German history, I could have listened to his explanations and stories for days! This will be something I recommend to anyone I hear traveling to Berlin! Thankyou for making my trip here, I'll be coming back for sure!"
"I am going to recommend this tour to all of my friends. The best way to learn a lot about Berlin and its history in the shortest time possible. Derek is an excellent guide. He obviously loves the city, very well-prepared, full of wisdom, and he can present what he has to say in an intriguing, engaging and humoruous manner. Thanks, Derek, it was excellent indeed. Good luck for the future. "
