Me and my boyfriend took the tour on one of our first days/holidays in Berlin. It was a magnificent start to the trip. We were brought by a tour guide named Paul, he was extremely informative and kept the whole trip exciting and interesting. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone, and we will. Even after the tour had finished Paul stayed with the group offering help and advice for travelling and transport in the city, which is otherwise difficult to navigate sometimes. It was an amazing experience and the helpfulness of the guide kept any stresses for first time travellers at an absolute minimum. Thanks again Paul, Up Wexford. Regards, Some very very happy customers

This was an exceptional tour - Dan was a superb guide and, as well as the David Bowie material, he also included other, relevant, parts of Berlin history. I am a fan of author Christopher Isherwood and Dan went out of his way to show us the apartment where Isherwood lived with its plaque - this was very kind of him and much appreciated. The Bowie information was comprehensive and Dan made it come alive. I cannot recommend this tour enough - you won’t be disappointed.

Really fascinating tour in a more intimate small group setting. I had a guide named Eran on a lovely Saturday morning and he was amazing in explaining the history, engaging the audience and adding his personal history/story to the tour. Highly recommend!

The guide Eran was very informative and was very engaging, really enjoyed the tour learned things that I didn’t know. Would recommend

The tour was great with a lot of learning, reflection and History. The guide was very gentle and open to any questions.
