Jason was a great guide, very entertaining and kept us laughing throughout. He was really informative and threw in some personal anecdotes along the way. We saw areas of Berlin we probably would not have seen if not for the tour.

The 10 Tastings of Berlin With Locals: Kreuzberg Private Food Tour
My sister in law and I were fortunate enough to experience a wonderful food tour w/ Michele. Michele contacted us prior to our meeting to kindly inquire about food allergies and to remind us of the meeting place. Once we met Michele we knew we were going to have a great tour. Michele not only shared her love of food in the Kreuzburg neighborhood (amazing coffee, kofta, angry chicken, kimchi French fries, etc), but she also shared her experiences living in Berlin. We also loved seeing and learning about neighborhood graffiti art. Needless to say, our afternoon sped by too quickly!! We ate our fill of delicious food and learned a little of the culture and history of Kreuzburg and Berlin. I recommend this tour and, especially Michele, without reservation!!!

Ioana was a wonderful guide, from bringing us to great locations for food, to making sure we were in the shade on this hot day while learning about the wall art. Thank you!

3 hour walking tour with a bit of local art and a lot of food and drink stops that were enjoyable and reflective of where the locals go. Nice to be in a small tour group too.

T he guide was excellent.She gave us very detailed information about the three districts we visited.What I like most is that we were taken to places that the ordinary tourist is not able to discover bythemselves. I highly recommend this tour to eveyone who is interested in getting the feeling of how different cultures interect in Berlin.

Ok, Not really my Tour - I purchased this for my daughter as she did not want to do the trip to Sachsenhausen. She enjoyed it immensely, and by all accounts had a great time (you know it's not easy to pry this sort of Info. out of your Offspring. ) SO, if it was good enough for her I can only recommend it as worth doing.
