"Michael brilliantly guided my small group through some of the major works of these magnificent collections. He is deeply informed, very engaging and stimulating, and responsive to questions, not to mention beautifully well spoken with an actor's command of the Queen's English. The "greatest hits" -- including the Ishtar Gate and the bust of Nefertiti (the Pergamon Altar was closed for renovation work the day I was there) -- are breathtaking, but he showed us much more, a lot of it somewhat unexpected. He put what we were seeing in a broad historical context, including the recent history of World War II and reunification as seen through the reconstruction of the museum buildings. I think a guide is essential in tackling collections of this scale in a brief visit. It's a bit pricey, but you then have a full day's ticket to all five museums on Museum Island so that you can explore further on your own. I saw and learned so much more, and so much more comfortably and efficiently, than I would have on my own. Well worth the price and one of my most lasting memories of my visit to Berlin."
"The tour was fascinating, informative but cold. Nickolai did his best to keep us warm with a good choice of locations. His delivery, knowledge and passion for his subject shone through. It was a pleasure to listen to him. Thanks Nickolai "
"This is an excellent tour. You can do this by yourself, but you'll get more out of it, and feel less anxiety getting to and from the site if you go with a guide. Walid was fabulous: informative, interesting, entertaining, and, more than once, deeply moving. We did this tour on our second full day in Berlin; it was a good way to acclimate to the city and the U-bahn; and a good way to somehow partially process what went on at Sachsenhausen. "
"Just had a tour with Ronan today to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. I had to let you know ASAP that Ronan was extremely knowledgable in all aspects. Very helpful and looked after us all. He made this visit easy to understand. He is an asset to Insider Tours.Thank you Ronan, much appreciated."
"The weather was very wet and cold but Nikolai did his very best to keep us dry and out of the wind. What a knowledgeable man! Fascinating facts as well as all the history you could ask for in a tour. We will return and take another tour with this guide, hopefully in better weather! Well done Nickolia and thank you."
"Cannot fault this tour company or guides. Having done this tour several years ago, I chose it again on a recent trip to Berlin. Each guide puts their own individual perspective and knowledge into it. Jared was informative, knowledgeable and helpful throughout. Go on any Insider Tour, you won't be disappointed! Highly recommended. "
"She was fantastic. She had the perfect combination of excellent information about all the sites we visited and great wit. She was good about making sure that we all could hear her and her pace was good for everyone in the group. Excellent tour. Highly recommended."
"We did the famous walk the day before which we fully recommend as it gave us an introduction which leads onto this tour. Maria gave a great tour, full of humour and great detail...and what a kebab shop at half time!!...;) "
"Great tour, Barnaby was very humorous and gave a great insight to the city....Recommended"
