The tips-based model of the Free Tour allows guests to support and reward only the highest quality tours, and to ensure that the tour fits within their expectations, and within their budget. I was a bit apprehensive about doing the free tour as I've had mixed experiences in the past, but on this occasion we had a great experience. Firstly, the large group was split in 3 so there were just over 20 people, a good size.
We were lucky enough to get Martin, who was wonderful. He is a Berliner, so you really felt like he was telling the story of his own country and people.
He gave exactly the right amount of detail and had a very engaging delivery style. I got chills when he related his last story and the temperature was 36 degrees! Would recomend to others! Sadie was the best tour guide imaginable for our first free walking tour.
Berlin is such a great city and her knowledge was unmatched and very engaging. My wife and I enjoyed her guided tour so much that we have chosen to do 3 others in other cities we've visited since then. Have to give a ton of credit to her for handling a larger sized group so easily.
There were about stops and points of interest with very detailed historical info and cultural info to paint the picture for about a 3 hour experience. Also a break time to grab a water, beer or snack halfway. Couldn't have had a better time, highly recommend.
The tour was well organised, really informative and comprehensive! Sarah was familiar with details of Berlin past and present and ready to answer all of our questions. Only little thing that bothered me is that she was a little bit quiet, but better than some too loud and excessive guide! The 4-star rating is only because of the coffee break at a sterile coffee shop which, based on my experiences, doesn't represent Berlin at all.
This was done; believe it or not, in the German Democratic Republic, the DDR, the socialist German state in , but the iron cross and the eagle were taken away as a symbol of German militarism. After the construction of the Wall in , the Brandenburg Gate was within the exclusion zone and inaccessible from West and East alike.
On August 14, people from West Berlin together with their mayor, Willy Brandt, had rallied against the construction of the Wall. As it could be seen from the West, the Brandenburg Gate became a symbol of the German partition and the desire of reunification. Five European cities to explore in just one day read more.
