Karin was a terrific guide....her love for her city of Berlin and an acute knowledge of the historic and political impacts of Berlin made our first day in the city one we will long remember. I can highly recommend Karin to anyone looking to explore Berlin with a seasoned and knowledgeable guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Bob, It was so much fun and the time went by so quickly. I am very glad that the S trains were no problem and that you had a great time getting around. All the best for you. Karin

If I could give Karin 10 stars I would!! She had such a vast amount of knowledge of history and she took the time to show me as much as possible in the amount of time we had available. She's such a pleasant person and adjusted if needed as we went along. Learned so much about Berlin I didn't know. I highly recommend Karin anytime you need a guide! I will be back I hope and defiantly will call Karin!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kristi, Thank you. I enjoyed our walk through Berlin and your interest in everything. I had a great time and look forward to whenever we can get together again! Have a wonderful time with the rest of your travels! Karin

We LOVED our tour with Karin. We asked her to focus on East/West/Cold War sites around Berlin. We visited all of the main sites in central Berlin related to the Wall, Brandenburg gate, the four sectors of Berlin, etc. But she also took us to many out of the way places, including visiting neighborhoods with classic East German architecture, a planned East German apartment complex, and the Stasi Museum. We had a wonderful day discussing the East/West issues, and she happily answered all our questions!

Karin was very knowledgeable about history and had even brought along print outs to help add context and a broader picture to the sites we were seeing. These were great for helping to learn the history. I appreciated her pace and very cheerful demeanor during our entire tour. She was extremely kind and a pleasure to meet!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Scott and Sara, it was a lot of fun showing you Berlin and meeting you! All the best to you! Karin

Karin Holl, in our judgment, should be the standard for how excellent guides are evaluated. She gave a half day tour of Berlin for four of us, and she crammed an enormous amount into those hours. Knowledgeable, passionate and personable, she confidently led us to see and understand key sights and events which have shaped Berlin. May you be so fortunate as to book her as your guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Richard, Thank you so much! I enjoyed the four of you very much. The stimulating conversations we had were fabluous. I hope the rest of your stay in Berlin was great! Lots of luck to the four of you! Karin

In my initial correspondence with Karin I said that we would like to visit this cemetery as my aunt was buried here but we didn't know exactly where. She researched my request, managing to talk with the priest prior to our arrival and arranged an appointment for us. I was blown away by her compassion, she had gone out of her way to ensure that we were able to finally find her grave, Karin's research and attention ensured that we had the best visit to Berlin and we hope to return again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Zofija, it was my pleasure!

One of the best tour guides ever! Karin knows her city very well and it is was a pleasure to spend our day with her. I was impressed by her professionalism, her communication prior to our arrival was excellent. The tour was tailored to our requests and we came away with a really good understanding of the city, something you don't always find. I would definitely recommend Karin if you are wanting to explore the city with a charming and well informed guide, who knows where all the good cafes are!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Zofjia and family, Thank you for such lovely three days with you! It was fun, interesting and we had such great conversations. By the way, the cheese is excellent! I hope to come to Scottland to see you and get some more of that wonderful cheddar! Lots of love from Berlin to you!

Karin gave us a wonderful tour of Berlin. She was knowledgeable, informative, enthusiastic and clear and precise in her presentation. Her English was extremely understandable and she used the available time to give us a comprehensive introduction to Berlin. She covered issues relating to history, politics, the Jewish experience, economics, immigration and current affairs. We highly recommend her services.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Janet & Roger, I am happy that you got to see so much of Berlin within the limited time we had. I had the feeling you got a very good overview of the history and the extent of this city. It was fun for me! I hope you are enjoying the rest of your holiday! All the best wishes, Karin

I would highly recommend Karin's tour of Berlin. As a first time visitor to Berlin this was an ideal way to get a great overview of the incredible amount of sights and history of this wonderful city. Karin was very knowledgeable and arranged an ideal itinerary that allowed me to see so many key sights. As somehow who has been interested in Berlin's history I came away having learned so much from this tour (and came away convicted of how much more there is still yet to see on future visits).

Karin loves Berlin and when you have someone that loves the city the live in and a great knowledge of its history it can only be a wonderful experience. Karin took my teen age daughter and me to the main sites with a lot of insight and made the tour interesting for them. We had a wonderful time in Berlin and look forward to coming back and have Karin show us more of this wonderful city

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Alejandro, Thank you and I enjoyed showing you, Pauline and Valentina Berlin. They were so interested and that is always a pleasure. I am glad that you go so much out of it. Hopefully again sometime, in Berlin. All the best, Karin

We had an amazing time in Berlin with our tour guide, Karin Holl. She has a wealth of knowledge and many insightful facts. We loved that she brought the before and after pictures of the city, so we can have a better understanding what the city had went through. She is very enthusiastic and full of energy in sharing this great city. We really enjoyed learning the rich history and culture Berlin has to offer. We strongly recommend Karin to everyone.

Karin gave us a wonderful walk / ride tour of a wide area of central Berlin. She is well informed of history and the rapid changes. She is a good listener and put our surroundings into usable context. At one site she considered silence to be more effective than details. She was correct.

Karin did an outstanding job giving my family of 6 a walking tour of Berlin. She was very accommodating to our schedule and with our meeting location. She has an outstanding knowledge of Berlin and did an excellent job sharing that knowledge with us. We took three different tours during our recent trip, and while all of the tours were good, Karin's tour was by far the best. I would highly recommend Karin to my family and friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Bill, you are so welcome. It was wonderful to show you and your family everything. I enjoyed the interesting converstions that came up. Thank you for giving me such a great comment. I wish you and your family well! All the best greetings from Berlin! Karin
