Our walk with SamB from Hackescher Markt was excellent. Starting from the historical background and right through our walk, he provided facts and many other interesting details of all the points of interest along the way. Definitely helped our understanding of how the modern Berlin has emerged from its troubled past.

Sarah was very informative and engaging. There was a lot of walking and standing so keep that in mind. We stopped at a coffee shop outside of Checkpoint Charlie for 10 minutes. Easy to understand her and gave a wonderful summary of German history. Perfect tour for first timers to Berlin.

We thoroughly enjoyed this 4.5 hour walking tour that hit many Berlin highlights. Sam Z was knowledgeable, humorous and entertaining. Pace was acceptable to all participants and Sam Z welcomed all questions.

Booked a Sunday morning tour at the start of our visit, with Sam Z as guide. It was the best choice we could have gone for. His tour was informative, thought provoking but also very enjoyable. And for his granny back in Scotland we can confirm that he is eating his tatties and living a pure and wholesome life.
