What people are saying about Friedrichshain
A perfect tour!
The tour through Kreuzberg was perfectly organized and varied. We have seen sides of Berlin that we would never have found on our own. The small group makes the tour a personal experience. The stops at the various sights in Kreuzberg and the very tasty coffee were great. Our guide was competent, entertaining and responded to our interests and gave us a lot of new impressions. We felt very comfortable and well looked after. We can only recommend this tour if you want to get to know Berlin from another side. The next time we are in Berlin we will definitely book another tour with Secrets Tours.
Very nice tour, put on comfortable shoes!
very informative, nice route, definitely wear comfortable shoes. If you don't just want to rush from point A to B, then you should allow more than 6 hours for the tour. There is a crucial error on the maps, which we will definitely inform the provider, since there is a wrong direction in envelope 3, which is devastating for the further course of the tour. It says here that after going through the passage, you should turn right. It would be correct, however, to turn left, then it would fit.
Very interesting and fun tour
We were very lucky to be the only guests on this tour. The tour started on time. Ms. Terwellen was very friendly and accommodating, the minibus in excellent condition. In the following 3.5 hours we explored Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain by minibus and learned a lot about these two districts that were unknown and exciting to us. Overall, an all-round successful tour.
It is not the usual tour of Berlin, you walk a lot and visit places that I think few people would put in their planning. But it is particularly fascinating to walk streets that exude street art. The Italian girl, Amelie, who accompanied us was really very nice and prepared. I were you I would.
Fantastic experience with very good guide among the many murals of Berlin, in its suburbs using convenient public transport. definitely recommend
