Marcus was fantastic! His English was excellent. He had a difficult assignment since Viking was offering an included tour of Berlin the next day. There was some overlap, but he was still able include much detail and show us out of the way sites that were lacking the next day. We especially enjoyed the old town alley and the Christmas drawing done by a soldier who did not survive Stalingrad.
Kristen JaegerUnited States
Marcus opened our eyes to Berlin and to Potsdam - he offered wonderful energy, breadth and depth to every moment along the way. We were completely engaged and feel as though we saw and learned a lot. We highly recommend Marcus!
A wonderful experience. Whilst this was tour based on the Berlin Wall, Markus shared much insight into Berlin today and in the past. He was a considerate guide, and led us well around the streets. The riding is straightforward. Absolutely recommended.

Markus was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. It rained all day, but he never complained and gave us a full 6+ hours tour despite the weather in Berlin.

We liked what we read about Markus, but didn't know how well the tour would work out! He is beyond a "5" star rating. He knew that we only had a limited amount of time. He showed us around and explained very well all that we saw. What a wonderful city and enhanced by the wonderful tour Markus gave us. Also, the driver Marcus choose, was an Angel!

Markus is a wonderful guide. He is very knowledgeable about Berlin and took us to all of the places we wanted to see. He speaks English very well and is very personable. He tailored our tour to accommodate my wife who relies on a manual wheelchair to get around and he assisted me in carrying out this task. We highly recommend Markus.
Christopher WalkerKansas City, MO, United States
This is the perfect way to get an overview of Berlin and Markus is the guy to facilitate the experience. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to customize the tour to our interests. The biking tour allows you cover so much more ground that a walking tour without sacrificing the intimacy of the experience. He covered a range of interesting sites from historical, modern political, and entertainment and cultural. He conveys his love of Berlin with warmth and enthusiasm.

We just returned from a FABULOUS trip to Germany. We were a group of 8, 2 families, each with 2 children. We absolutely LOVED Markus. We had a 6 hour, Discover Berlin Tour with him, which we broke up over 2 days. We learned soo much about the history of Berlin. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. He was extremely friendly and was great at getting the kids involved. I would highly recommend Markus.

Jim L.United States
INCREDIBLE Tour by Markus and his driver Angelic. Our visit to Potsdam was filled with information, history and beautiful sites!We couldn't have accomplished this in a large group tour or on our own.To be able to sit in a comfortable van and ask any number of questions, while not having to negotiate traffic and worry about tour ticket times, or wasting precious time waiting and wondering if we had all the group,was priceless!! Markus was sensitive to our needs, knowledgeable and fun!We are sold on TBL!!!

Douglas GuthrieUnited States
We had a limited amount of time in Berlin and Markus was terrific in making sure that we saw all of the key sites. One of our group of 4 had never been to Berlin so Markus was careful to show the key "tourist" spots as well as introducing us to some new, cool areas of the city for those who had been before. The highlight was the way Markus went way above expectations to find the areas and exact house where one of our group had lived as a teenager 40 years ago. This was very special. Thanks, Markus!
Benjamin BrownRaleigh, NC, United States
Very informative and flexible. At our request, Markus split our tour into two sections over a period of three days. He loves the city and walked us through serveral neighborhoods and sites. Great guide. Wished we had used him on all three days.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us an interesting and fun tour of the main attractions of the city.
Jenkins JerryUnited States
Markus was a wealth of information! He obviously loves Berlin and he loves sharing his knowledge. We found Markus to be very accommodating and he adjusted his s tour to our interests. We highly recommend this tour utilizing the two day option. He also offered suggestions and directions for things to do when parted.
Thomas WhartenbyUnited States
Markus is an outstanding guide who speaks wonderful English, much better than our German. He is patient and most importantly,a wealth of knowledge. Our tour of Potsdam was truly enjoyable. Supported by a private vehicle and driver, he picked us up at our hotel in Berlin; the fabulous Hotel de Rome. It started with the Bridge of Spies. As much as we tried to disrupt or interrupt him,he had an answer. He was very sensitive to our tired legs and paced us accordingly. Doesn't get any better than Markus!
Thomas WhartenbyUnited States
Markus was our introduction to Berlin, started after we arrived in the morning, after an overnight flight. Couldn't think of a better way to see a new destination. His knowledge was expensive and his English was very good. All that coupled with a warm sense of humor. After his tour, we were able to share some of our newly gained knowledge with some Brit friends who later spent a couple of days with us. Glad we met and toured with Markus. A great first experience in Berlin, a wonderful city and people.
Donna HunterUnited States
Marcus was an excellent guide for our group of four women in our 70's. He led us at our pace and got to know our interests quickly. He was fun, happy, serious, professional, all the things that made us feel safe and well cared for. He was totally knowledgeable about his city and its history; he brought Berlin alive to us. He took us to hidden gems we never would have found on our own. We divided the 8-hr tour in East Berlin one day and West Berlin the second day. We finished the tour wanting to come back!

An excellent walking (and public transport) general tour of Berlin. Marcus has very good knowledge and is a personable guide - a pleasure to spend time with.
Robert RutkowskiUnited States
It is hard for one to imagine any guide doing a better job than Markus D. He did a marvelous job of fitting in all that we wanted to see; and included some other great finds. Not only does he have a vast knowledge, but he has a very pleasant manor of explaining the history and development of Berlin. He planned a good mix of riding and walking: It was an action packed 4 hrs. We give him our highest recommendation.
Dale PatriasNew York, NY, United States
Markus is an outstanding tour guide, very professional, very knowledgeable and fun to be with. I told him the kinds of information that I needed and the places that I wanted to see. He answered all by concerns and questions thoroughly. He exceeded every expectation.
Hyman RybackUnited States
Markus was very knowledgeable and his facility with English was very good.
We had a fabulous tour of Potsdam and Sanssouci with Markus. Markus is a very knowledgeable tour guide who was able to give us a unique perspective on history being a Berliner himself. Postdam and Sanssouci are absolutely beautiful places to visit. A short & easy train ride from Berlin and a must see that will change the pace and the mood of a city excursion like Berlin for a day.
Jeffrey DiceUnited States
Markus did an outstanding job showing us the contrast in between the current and the old Berlin! Very knowledgeable and personable. Used him for 3 days and don't regret a minuite of the time spent! Highly recommend him to anyone

Thomas VeitchUnited States
Everything I could ever hope for in a guide and a driver. Markus knows Berlin from several stand points - the past, present and future. Willing to share his love and pride of Berlin. Willing to find out out interests and adapt - upon learning we love chocolate Markus took us to THE best store which had chocolate replicas of many of Berlin famous buildings. Willing to pace the trip to our speed and showed flexibility - being in the food business we stopped at a food market. They made Berlin come alive
Dorothy SnyderUnited States
The day trip to Potsdam and Sansouci was delightful! The ride to Potsdam was broken up by stops to see the Queen's palace, walk across the "Bridge of Spies" and seeing/hearing about the beautiful lakes and scenery. Markus is full of interesting facts that bring the history of the area to life. His explanation of the personalities of the various kings, especially Ludvig II was insightful as well as humorous. We will never forget the wonderful cup of hot chocolate at the small café in the Dutch area o
Dorothy SnyderUnited States
We can only say good things about Markus…he was punctual, courteous, accommodating, very personable and so knowledgeable! He provided a driver which made our introduction to Berlin so comfortable. We covered so much area in the first day with Markus' giving us the history of the area we were touring, allowing us to walk the various areas where his expertise was evident in his explanations, descriptions and past experiences. He has a very pleasant manner and is willing to answer questions about histo

There was a fee for his additional service of which we were told beforehand.
