Insider Reviews

Highly recommended Insider Tour

I went on this tour and I highly recommend it! it was very interesting, and it made my whole visit in Berlin much more meaningful. Eran was my tour guide and he was wonderful! He knows so much about the city and it’s history, he gave us recommendations of must see places and was very patient and professional! Take this tour and you wouldn’t regret it.

Great way to get to know Berlin's fascinating and complex history and see beautiful architechture

So glad we did this tour as soon as we arrived in Berlin for the first time with our family of 5 including 3 teenagers. Maria was knowledgeable and personable and knew her stuff. Highly recommend Maria and this tour. Very few tourists in Berlin right now so we had the main sites to ourselves. We loved Berlin. Maria met us at our hotel (Regent Hotel) so it was easy to walk to everything from there.

Request Martin

Our guide led us on a 4 hours tour earlier this week. He was one of the best tour guides that we have ever had (and we do a lot of traveling). Knowledgeable, smart, engaging and informative. Such a pleasure to be led by someone who is so good at their job.

Private Third Reich tour with Martin

We just finished our tour with Martin it was amazing. Martin was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about all the sites we visited and answered all of our questions with ease. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody visiting Berlin. It is also an excellent way to see the city.

Dylan Wright

Worth every penny! And a big thank you to Insider Tour (you made it extra special) An absolute expert in his field. 4 hours was simply not enough. Would highly recommend and will be doing again upon our return to Berlin.

Great walking tour

I would highly recommend this tour when visiting Berlin. Our guide, was excellent. He gave us a great insight into the history of Berlin in an very interesting and fun way. This private walking tour is definitely the way to go, especially when, like us, you have a limited time in Berlin.

Impressive tour

Even on a rainy day, this tour lived up to our expectations. Our guide gave a masterful account of the history, people, places and events surrounding the rise and fall of the Third Reich as we strolled throughout Berlin. The personal insights and style of our guide and the impressive details were greatly appreciated.

Excellent again

Great private tour by insider tour. I hesitate to write this review as so many have written reviews so what can i add? Well, this is the second time i have used the group in the last 4 years. Different tour leaders but both were excellent and that is the point of the review. It is clear that this organization is able to properly train their staff and provide excellent walking tours. We did a combination of WW2 /cold war sites. Highly recommend this group.
