Insider Reviews

Smart, eye-opening and engaging tour

Great tour. Good value. Highly recommend

This was a great tour. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. So many highlights including the Reichstag, the Soviet War Memorial in the Tiergarten and the Federal Ministry of Defense to name just a few. A good value. Highly recommend.

Great tour and guide!

We really enjoyed this walking tour. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Hitler and the Third Reich. Highly recommend if you have the time while in Berlin. We learned and saw a lot of stuff that we would have missed without going on this tour.

Excellent, even second time around

What an excellent way to get a lot of information about WW2 and Berlin. Can absolutely recommend it to everyone. We've done it 8 years ago with another guide, and was afraid, that we'd seen and heard it all. But we wanted out adult boys to have the tour too. Not to worry - every guide uses their personal background and experience, and we got to know even more about Berlin.

Informative tour with great guide

The tour was really very informative, explaining how Hitler and Nazi came into power and maintained absolute power throughout those years. Our guide, was really knowledgeable on the topic. I particularly like how he ended the tour with a thought provoking question on the line between reistance and acceptance.

Fascinating and informative walking tour

This tour was informative, engaging, and worth every penny! Our tour guide braved the cold and rain to provide us with a great tour filled with fascinating history. If you're interested at all in the Third Reich/WWII History/Hitler make sure to set time aside during your stay in Berlin to take this tour. It will not disappoint!

Great walking tour

Our guide was very knowledgeable and I could have spoken to him all day about this kind of stuff. The tour visited some great sites with interesting history with the bunker right at the end of the tour. The tour was paced well and there was plenty of time to ask questions.

Guide made the tour

We had a great tour today with Insider. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, he struck exactly the right tone for such a delicate topic, he had a great sense of humor, and, above all, he left us with questions to keep pondering
