Anecdotes of anarchy and art!
Our guide Jake was an ex-pat version of Ben Elton in patter, mannerisms and manic energy, full of a multiplicity of stories and anecdotes about his beloved adopted city. The four hours we spent strolling around parts of the anarchic former East Berlin flew past and gave us an appetite to return to see more — which we duly did the next day. Well worth it! Thanks!

Berlin Off-the-Beaten-Path Walking Tour: Kreuzberg, Mitte and Friedrichshain
Utterly fascinating tour. We learned things about Berlin we had no idea about (and we’ve been several times) Jake was a brilliant, clever, warm guide whose passion for the city really made it come alive. Would recommend this tour 100%

Berlin Off-the-Beaten-Path Walking Tour: Kreuzberg, Mitte and Friedrichshain
A good alternative tour. Jake very knowledgeable and entertaining. A history of Berlin to present day, interspersed with a hint of socialism. Time went very quickly, certainly did not feel like 4 hours, but that would be credited to Jake's ability to keep the tour interesting. Would definitely recommend tour. especially with Jake as you tour guide.

English Comedy Ticket including Pizza in Berlin Mitte
Neil was an excellent MC who kept things moving along with his material between each comedians set time and ensured that they stayed within the allotted time. Pizza was great and the shot was smooth - a nice surprise. The line up of comedians was impressive and none of them were bad. Interesting perspective offered by all the comedians who are not originally from Berlin. Other reviewers have pointed out that the folding chairs are old and need to be replaced.

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.

Don’t Miss “old” Berlin in Nikolaiviertel

Underneath the GDR-era TV Tower in Mitte is the earliest settlement of Berlin, dating back to 1200, and a tiny place of fascination. After the heavy bombing of World War II, Nikolaiviertel was in dire straits like the rest of the city. But in 1979, faithfully restored the little charming buildings and cobblestone streets to their original state.
