Karen was extremely knowledgeable about Berlin, and did an excellent job of conveying that knowledge to us. Because of our limited mobility, she arranged for a driver. Consequently our tour covered a wide range of sites that would have been otherwise overlooked. She was very considerate in allowing adequate opportunity for photographs. She is highly recommended as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much

Karen was a wonderful guide. She did a great job of connecting with our group which included two teenagers and my 81 year old mother. She worked with me to customize the tour to include several things we really wanted to see and helped us see the highlights of Berlin in the limited time available. I highly recommend Karen to Berlin visitors looking for a private tour, and I look forward to trying Tours By Locals in other cities based on this experience.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
