Sansoucci Palace was fantastic and the history about the palace and the kings was very interesting . Only negative was that our tour was on a Sunday and while Potsdam was charming , nearly everything was closed so probably would have opted for a little less time there , otherwise very good
Christine ErevellesUnited States
We saw so much it's almidt hard to believe ... tons of orientation to the city before and after the Wall , east side gallery , Brandenburg Gate and more !
Karen was one of the best guides we have had through Tours by locals. As a "local", we visited several important sites in Berlin and she always had deep knowledge of where we were and wanted to go. Definitely recommend her services. Very friendly and warm personality.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Xavier, thank you for the nice comment. I wish you a Happy New Year!! Kind regards Karen
David GainerUnited States
Karen was superb. Tailored the tour to exactly the kinds of things we were interested in, blended history of the city and Germany with her own personal stories, and was very cheerful and upbeat. Highly reccomended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, thank you for voting. It was a pleasure to me. Kind regards Karen
Mark L.United States
Karen had arranged an excellent tour of Potsdam, which was a city and region that had interested me for a very long time. Her incredible knowledge of every location and exacting planning allowed me to experience so many of these sites that I wasn't sure I'd have time for during my relatively brief time in Berlin. I would strongly encourage anyone who is considering a visit to some of these historic palaces and grounds to take Karen's tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mark, thank you so much for your kind voting. Best wishes Karen

Karen is the best! She is a wealth of knowledge, fun & funny, energetic, without an agenda, other than making the day enjoyable for her clients. We had three in our party, ages 30-58, from the US and Russia. She made the day enjoyable for all three of us and not only listened to our suggestions but asked us throughout the day for our preferences. As a side note, her driver, Renee, was fantastic. He was always in the right place at the right time, quick to open a door and concerned for his guests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for voting me. it was a pleasure for me to do the tour with you. Kind regards Karen

Karen is an excellent guide. She brought Berlin and it's history to life for me especially by sharing her own experiences growing up during the cold war era. One of my most favorite trips and guides.

Peggy B.United States
Karen was wonderful. She made a great tour and showed us a lot of Berlin that we had not seen. She also made arrangements to go to the parliament building with the glass dome. It was wonderful hearing about berlin (East West & Current) through her experiences and information.
Diana RichUnited States
Santiago and I have returned home to Washington DC full of wonderful memories of your very special tour of Potsdam and the palaces of the Prussian kings (Saturday Nov 29). You made the day so fascinating and educative. Indeed, our entire visit to Berlin was extraordinary - and we wish to return one day in the not so distant future. Please know that we shall seek you out when we do return and highly recommend you and Berlin Toursbylocals to our Berlin-bound friends in the meantime.
Frances SchulmanUnited States
My comment is about the tour which is hard to plan because it depends on what the galleries are showing. I ended up enjoying the architectural aspects of the tour more than the galleries. The art scene is similar to New York, so I felt like I was seeing art that could have been in Chelsea. If I had to do it over again, I would have scheduled a tour about architecture. As a guide, Karen did a good job.
Dave RothUnited States
Karen was very professional and informative. My wife and I enjoyed the tour very much and learned a great deal.....Dave Roth
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dave for the comment. Karen
Frank SchulwolfUnited States
Karen gave us a wonderful day filled with relevant information. We were very much looking forward to this tour and Karen added to it immeasurably. She was very thoughtful and very generous with her time. I wouldn't hesitate a moment to take another tour with her on our next trip to Berlin.

Karen helped plan an itiniery to meet our particular needs and it was executed exceptionally well.
Jim FrisonUnited States
Karen was a joy to spend an afternoon with and led us to many interesting art discoveries that we never would have found on our own. She was well prepared, something that requires time and effort with an always-changing art scene. We highly recommend a tour with Karen to get a taste of what is happening in Berlin's art scene.
