Matthew is a treasure, one of the best tours we have ever taken. He is a walking encyclopedia of German and world history, which dovetails well into the tour. Matthew seamlessly integrates old and new Berlin and is careful to move at your pace. He is so generous with his wealth of knowledge. You'll see well know sites but also some brilliant treasures that aren't in guidebooks. And he recommended dinner! Thank you Matthew for a lifetime of memories in just 3 hours - we can't wait to return to Berlin.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great feedback, Tony! Glad to hear you enjoyed the schnitzel recommendation - can't visit Germany without indulging in one. It was a pleasure meeting you both and guiding you around, see you next time!

Tour: #546454, Cold War Berlin Private Van Tour | 6 Hours, Berlin, Berlin, Germany    view tour
Date: Sep 30/19

Matt is an outstanding tour guide! He is both incredibly knowledgeable and personable. This tour takes you to the sights of Cold War Berlin. I highly recommend this tour for Cold War history enthusiasts. There are so many highlights on this tour but one that stood out to me was walking on what was the East Berlin side of the wall (in what can be described as the kill zone) knowing that many people were shot and killed for trying to escape the communist East Germany. Matt Thanks for a memorable day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to spend time with you, James, and the rest of your group. We managed quite a schedule over those two days - I'm always impressed when people come to Berlin with itinerary ideas in mind, both a challenge and an adventure! Top feedback from the 'king of online reviews' is always appreciated. :D

Tour: Berlin Parliament District Tour, Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Date: Jul 7/19

Matt gave a very detailed explanation of the governmental agencies and the organs of government. Matt also commented on current day uses and activities related to this area of the city. Matt provided insightful commentary about German history and current political circumstances. I was immensely impressed with Matt's enthusiasm and versatility. I highly recommend Matt as a guide for this and other tours in Berlin.”

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for sharing this wonderful feedback, Robert. I'm glad to hear that the tour exceeded your expectations. It was a pleasure to explore with your group that evening and although I would love to take all the credit for the discussion, I can tell when a group is interested and engaged with the subject at hand. Conversation is a two way street (or seven way in this case) and I believe those two hours were well spent. I hope you also enjoyed the rest of your time in Berlin!

Matthew and his driver Markus provided my wife and three children with an amazing tour of Berlin. I particularly appreciated the depth of knowledge Matthew had about the GDR and what it was like when The Wall was up. (I was there in 1983 and remember its starkness.) Markus has a most amazing story to tell ... Don't forget to ask him. My kids were in awe of the story. They really brought the great city of Berlin to life for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Steve! It was a pleasure to introduce your group to the city and re-introduce you to some of the places you'd previously visited to see just how much has changed since '83.
