Definitely worth it.

Easy to book, our guide Jim was Knowledgeable guide and visited all the important Third Reich sites. Definitely worth it. M. Smit Dec. '22

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

Great experience

Our guide Kai was very friendly and knowledgeable, spoke great English, and shared some really insightful and personal stories.

Recommended!

We had a great tour with Campbell. Lots of interesting facts, but also time for jokes. He took the time not only te guide us past the highlights, but also to explain the situation, the events in time that lead to the rise of the nazi’s. Also with much photo’s and illustrations to illustrate his story and eye for the little details along the way. It was an extremely cold and windy day, but even then it ended to soon for us. Would definitely recommend. 580fleurv
