What a fantastic 4 hours spent in the company of our brilliant guide, Barnaby. He was friendly, helpful, sincere, humorous where appropriate and a fountain of knowledge about a subject that he is so obviously completely passionate about. No question was too silly, or simple for him to answer, and as any true enthusiast he revelled in being asked to expand on topics using his vast store of knowledge. Quite the best tour we have ever taken, it made our holiday, so if you want to find out more about the last few days of the Third Reich then I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Go for it.

Excellent tour, or host Alicia was extremely knowledgable! Knew about 1000 different dates, and did a great job painting a picture of what the war looked like from start to finish for all of the world, not just Germany. Get to see majority of Berlin on the tour so a great way to see the city. Highly recommend!

Wow what a great tour! Highly recommended for history fans or for someone who wants just to improve their knowledge around this period of history. Our tour guide, John Jerome, was fantastic, tour was very well organised, lots of interesting facts and insight, John is clearly very well read on the topic and delivered tour with lots of enthusiasm. The tour was ideal for my 15 year old son who is studying this period of history for GCSEs next year. We both loved the tour and big shout out to John for a fantastic 4 hours.

We took the final days of WWI which is somewhat mislabeled. The tour includes much more than just the final days. Our tour guide was Maria. At first I was somewhat skeptical about the size of the group, however she was quite methodical in the way she toured. We walked as a group and then stood in the shade while she spoke very loudly and clearly in a lovely deep voice, so that I don't think any one had a problem hearing or understanding her. I have taken many walking tours in the past. I think they are a great way to learn about history and the city. This tour with Maria was one of the best. She was well informed and organized. I would recommend this tour with her.
