"A wonderful tour, Mike was able to bring to life the raw details of the cold war. His depth of knowledge and understanding was greatly appreciated by all. He engaged us in the tour and brought realism by reminding us of the human side of the cold war, East and West. Even in the extreme weather he never lost momentum for his passion of history. I can and will honestly recommend this tour with Mike to anyone visiting Berlin. Well, done."
"This was a fantastic tour, mostly because of Kenny's expertise and ability to communicate his knowledge in an interesting yet educational manner. Kenny provided thorough and illuminating insight at each site in a relaxed and humorous way. We learned so much about Berlin and its history in those 4.5 hours and were never once bored or disinterested. it was definitely a highlight of a very good trip to Berlin. Thanks so much Kenny! All the best mate."
"Of the many tours I've taken part in within the last month this was by far the best. I did this tour on the last day of my trip in Berlin and what a way to finish an amazing break. Our tour guide, Nigel, was definately enthusiatic and has a genuine interest in what he's showing you, which is good news for a history geek such as me. He was funny,( in the right places) and always had time to answer questions, never complained about the tour over-running and even suggested a stop for gluhwein and bratwurst. What more could you want!! A truly amazing experience!!"
"This was an extremely fascinating tour, instrumented by a combination of the eerie remains and Mikes extensive knowledge of the topic. Mike carried out the tour in an organised yet exciting manner; his infectious enthusiasm rubbing off on us all! He has incredible knowledge of the subject matter - my boyfriend and I were both impressed at how many dates and names he could remember! I will never forget this experience, and the things I have learnt thanks to Mike will forever resonate. Thanks very much, I'll definately be recommending the company and Mike in particular to all of my friends. An invaluable experience with fantastic value for money. Sarah"
"Mike once agian delivered on his extensive knwoledge of this most terrible chapter of German Histroy and some of the irony of the GDR management of the site after WWII. Friendly, thorough, enthusiastic & passionate are works to describe Mike's conduct of the Tour. Highly recommended"
"Mike brought to life the history of Berlin with his enthusiastic and passionate presentation of the pivotal events since WW1. As we are descendants of the German immigants to come to Australia this was especially meaningful. "
"Well, I am not surprised to see all the amazing comments for Nigel. He has really set the bar in terms of guided tours. My group of friends and I could not stop talking about how lucky we were to get Nigel as a guide. He was such a lovely man and his experience shines through and he manages to relay all the history respectively and interestingly. I wish we could have spent more time with him. He was a fountain of knowledge and anyone who gets Nigel for a tour can consider themselves SUPER LUCKY :)"
"Had never done a walking tour before but if all guides are like Kenny we would certainly do so again! It was not just his knowledge but his ability to make every site/story interesting and bring history to life. If we had been staying in Berlin longer we would have gone on other tours. Would highly recommend both the tour and Kenny."
"I know we will remember this day for many years to come. Derek was a brilliant guide with every tiny detail seemingly at his fingertips - a true gift for those with a fascination for modern history. Such an opportunity to make a personal account of events so deeply etched into ones upbringing was really a privilege, and to be guided so capably and intelligently was, as I say, a true gift. "
"Mike delivered a tour full of insight and information, and his enthusiasm throughout was infectious, whichever aspect of this fascinating city he was explaining. His comprehensive knowledge, understanding and empathy with Berlin simply made me want to reach out and delve ever deeper. He handled with consummate ease a large group of people of widely differing ages, his sense of humour shone through and the love of his subject was clearly evident. On top of that, his openness and availability to all were transparent. A thoroughly decent guy who gave everyone a brilliant tour. Hats off to you, Mike!!"
