We found this tour as an alternative to the (much more expensive) offering from the cruise company with whom we were sailing. The group size of nine was so much better than the group of 40 from the cruise who we bumped into. Daniel, our Irish-born guide, had lived in Germany for many years and was very knowledgeable about the local history and geography.

Many special details were shown/discussed. A lot of things were on the agenda besides the usual points of interest and were sometimes put into context very nicely. It was also easy to look at specific points in more detail afterwards. Very nice 2 hours.

A very interesting tour. It was a lot of fun and we were able to see some great farms. We learned a lot about Lübeck, the time went by far too quickly. We will definitely come back. Thank you very much. 🤗

The tour of Berlin was exceptional. The tour was easy to find. The guides Daniel and Nick were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable and also gave explicit, easy to follow instructions.

Very professional and the guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable and helpful.
