We had a superb time with Walid!
He is an amazing guide on this tour as he detailed the stories behind each historical places, buildings,streets. He was able to explain it beautifully as if we were back in time especially the start and fall of the Berlin Wall.
It's been the most enjoyable and knowledgeable trip we had, it is highly recommended!

I had Mike as a guide, and he was excellent. He has studied History and maintains an interest that really adds life to the tour. He took us to places normally not included on tours, and also skipped Checkpoint Charlie as there was a much better location to tell the story of crossing from West to East.
I highly recommend the tour, they were well organized and we didn’t waste a lot of time getting going, and we actually went longer than expected because of all the questions.
They don’t mention in the ad that you will need an all day transit pass, as we took several trains and trams during the tour.

An excellent 4 hour Cold War walking tour. Our guide, Ronan, was very informative around the subject and made the tour both enjoyable and humourous. We were a group of 4 people, including two 16 year olds, studying the cold war as part of their upcoming exams and it was an excellent tour to bring the subject to life, especially around the wall and what life was like for many East Berliners during that time
