Excellent guide and driver

By: Tom


Reviewed on: 23 Jan 2018

The guide was a former West Berlin native and spoke perfect English (well, the Queen's English anyway). He was knowledgeable, informative, and interesting. Our driver also spoke English and had grown up in East Berlin. He told us a bit of his story growing up. They were an excellent team and we really enjoyed our tours with them.
