Gerhard was so informative & welcoming. We booked him for our first morning of a 5 night stay and he waked us through all the major sights but also told us a bit about the area we were staying in which was a nice touch. We would absolutely recommend booking one of Gerhard's tours, as he really brought Berlin alive for us and meant we got our bearings pretty early on so we could explore further at our leisure! Thank you Gerhard.

Gerhard was fun, knowledgeable and a great guide. We did a two and a half hour walking tour and learned so much. Highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lisa. Thank you for your message. I hope you got good memories about Berlin. Even you had seen on our tour a typical -Berlin Event-, the demonstration caravan on Potsdamer Platz. If you intend another trip in our Region, I would show you Potsdam and his wonderful gardens and palaces. Have a look on this. https://www.spsg.de/en/home/ All the best Gerhard

I have used tours by locals on at least five prior occasions. This is the first time I've been disappointed. This guide is knowledgeable, but he lacks interpersonal skills. He was there to get a job done; but he didn't go the extra mile I am used to from Toursbylocals. He was punctual. And he is familiar with the historical sites but his presentation lacked animation.

Gerhard was excellent! He met my husband and me at our Berlin hotel on the 1st of our 3 days there for an informative and interesting morning walking tour to orient us to more touring on our own. Thanks to his perfect planning, we happily covered more than we expected in a short time, and we were thrilled by his outstanding historical, cultural, societal, and political expertise (and his perfect English and delightful sense of humor).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Madam. Beside, I have visited your website.I guess its quite more an US-Society main task. I'm glad that I had met you and your husband. All the best Gerhard

Gerhard is a delightful tour guide, full of relevant information and a sense of humor. We enjoyed an outstanding walking tour with him from our hotel to many of the historically significant sites in Berlin. His narrative was not merely factual, but very interesting and relevant in today's world setting. The directional orientation we received enabled us to self-navigate the rest of this week so far. We highly recommend Gerhard if you are lucky enough to find him available.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh thank you Sir! Your comment is like a -pour le merite- to me. With kind regards, Gerhard

Gerhard took us on two tours. First in the morning, Gerhard picked us up and toured us from our hotel to many highlights I had asked to see in Berlin. He gave us historical facts about many buildings in Berlin. He showed us a delicious restaurant for lunch and waited for us during our mustang safari after which he continued our tour and answered questions we had about Berlin and history. Gerhard also took us to the DDR museum and told us some of the highlights inside.

Gerhard took the time to listen to what we wanted to see and experience then put it together in a logical sequential tour so our time was maximized. His knowledge of Potsdam and in particular the Sanssouci Park is extensive. His anecdotes and historical insights were entertaining. We highly recommend Gerhard as a guide. Thanks for a great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the comment. I`m glad to get you a good time. Even when we really tooked the XXL tourtrip, pretty tired at least back in Berlin. With kind regards Gerhard

Gerhard was knowledgeable and enjoyable. Our only issue was that we were not able to enter a palace that we would like to see because of the line. I would have liked Gerhard to arrange for the tickets to be purchased earlier in the day so that we had that option.
