My wife and I had a tour with Hilke. Hilke picked us up promptly at our hotel. We decided to rent bikes as there were many sights to see and the bikes were the most efficient means of transportation. Hilke was very knowledgeable about the monuments and buildings. She gave us a good historical overview of both East and West Berlin. Hilke was so pleasant to be around. AT the end of the tour she gave us a few recommendations for the rest of our stay including a restaurant which we ate at immediately
