Very nice tour, despite being late January And therefore low season, we were a nice group! AB area pass is required. There are many stages and a leap into history by reliving the 30 years of the wall. Very interesting to get a general overview and then maybe plan some in-depth studies in specific areas or in thematic museums

Rodrigo was our guide and we were alone because the other couple who had a reservation did not show up. This boy is charming! He knows a lot about the city and he solves any question for you. He understands a lot about history and we loved his tour as well as his way of explaining. We really like history and Rodrigo is one of us! If we go back to Berlin, hopefully we will meet him again.

The tour is well organized and the guide very knowledgeable and pleasant. Thanks to this walking tour both get a different perspective of the Wall and of Berlin. It is almost possible to identify oneself in the shoes of those who lived through that historic moment. I would recommend the tour to all those who want to know more, and not stop to see the wall only as a piece of concrete.
