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!
