The best way to experience Berlin!

We had Canadian Chris as our tour guide, and he did a phenomenal job! We got to see some of Berlin's most iconic sites and hear more about the history. Chris has been in the business for over six years, so he knew how to make the tour personal and culturally relevant. He spent time getting to know all of the participants, and he embedded all of our backgrounds and experiences into the tour. Chris had a careful balance between being entertaining and discussing more of the darker historical events. A personal highlight was seeing the Brandenburg Gate. I highly recommend this tour to truly experience Berlin! Luckily our group was small (seven people) and the weather was nice. As a tip, I recommend checking the weather forecast before booking this tour because you are walking outside the entire time. There was a 15 minute break towards the end of the tour which was nice to sit or purchase a small snack.
