Insider Reviews

Best of Berlin

We did the hidden Berlin tour with insider Berlin and loved it. While it is a long drive from Rostock, it is well worth your time and money. Our guide Anne grew up as a east Berliner and saw the wall coming down as a teenager. We saw a lot of the major sites and finished the day at a great German beer garden. A really nice day. Our driver micha was also very nice and got us back to our port swiftly before we sailed. Highly recommended!!!

Great tour guide

This was a fantastic 4 hour tour. Worth every penny and time spent. Extremely knowledgeable tour guide who is very passionate about his job. Highly recommended. Keep up the great work.

Great tour

We had a limited amount of time, having come from a cruise ship in Warnemünde - 3 hours from Berlin. Our guide showed us the main sites, explained the history and was a very pleasant presence throughout. I can highly recommend this tour - I travelled with a daughter in her early twenties.
