A Recent Review of this tour

We spent three days touring Berlin and Potsdam with Karin and Juergen. It was like having friends show you around their city, quite comfortable and easy. They make a great team, Karin as guide and Juergen driving, however it quickly becomes obvious that Juergen is much more than a driver. He is an historian with a mind full of interesting bits of pertinent information. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with this great team and would recommend them when you are visiting Berlin!
