Alex is a fantastic guide — knowledgeable, funny, organized, and well attuned to our interests and pace. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Kara TeklinskiUnited States
I was overly impressed by Alex's knowledge about history and current events. This was my first time ever booking a private tour like this, and now any future guide will have a high bar to meet! In addition to a fulfilling day, he was more than happy to share advice on things to do my other days in Berlin. I also appreciated avoiding touristy areas (when possible, of course some sites will have tourists) and seeing the city and sites from a local's perspective. Great stop for lunch and Christmas Market!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am deeply grateful for your wonderful words, Kara. The day with you was wonderful, and I sincerely hope that you will return to Berlin one day. Have two more great days in Berlin and take care! :-)

Carol DeCandidoHong Kong
Alex was an amazing guide for our group of 6, for 4-hours around Berlin! He prepared a customized tour for us, per our request, giving small stories to go along with the history and locations we visited. He was well prepared and very entertaining and easy to listen to and very accommodating for anything we wanted to do or see. He is truly an experienced historian and tour guide for Berlin, we can highly recommend and would use his services again if and when we return to Berlin! Thank you Alex!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a fantastic review. Thank you so much, Carol. It was a true pleasure to meet your family and to show you Berlin‘s historical highlights. Please, get in touch in case you return to Berlin. It would be great to see you again.
Noah BrooksUnited States
Alex was everything we wanted in Berlin. He was very engaging and the perfect guide for our group of four. He met us at the hotel as promised and didn't leave our side until we got on the right train. (we asked to end the tour at the main train station). He was able to change his path on the fly to accommodate a few special requests. I would highly recommend. September 2019
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Noah, providing tours four groups like the four of you who are deeply interested in history and politics is always a pleasure. Thank you so much for booking a tour with me as well as for your great review. Please, get in touch if you plan another trip to Berlin/Germany. It would be great to see you again. Take care!

Alex made our visit to Berlin a great success as he gave us all of the necessary information to understand his city plus all the insider and local tips to enjoy it. The fact of being from Berlin, being a historian and former air force officer made for our tour to be enriching and very interesting. Thank you Alex.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this fantastic rating, Roberto. I sincerely enjoyed to be your family‘‘s tour guide. Moreover, it makes me happy to read that you had great days in Berlin. All the best.

Alexander was a wonderful, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable tour guide! We spent 6 hours with him on a Berlin Military/History tour that he was able to customize to our teenage boys' interests. He brought in many topics to keep them engaged as we learned about Berlin's history. He relayed the wealth of information in an interesting and meaningful way. Alexander also gave us suggestions for restaurants, museums, and other Berlin sites. I would absolutely recommend Alexander as a tour guide!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Reading your review makes me very happy, Susan. Thank you so much. It was a true pleasure to be your family‘s Berlin guide, and I am glad that I met your expectations. I wish you all the best.
I enjoyed a wonderful day walking the streets of Berlin with Alex. As a guide Alex is superb and I lucked out booking him as my guide. I was able to see things I would never have contemplated and Alex organized my itinerary to meet my interests. That personal touch together with his knowledge and love of history made for the best walking tour of Berlin I could ever have hoped for. I would recommend Alex without hesitation. The next time I'm in Berlin there is only one tour guide I will be booking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your outstanding review, Greg. I am truly happy that you enjoyed the tour I prepared for you, especially due to your deep knowledge of German history as well as the fact that you had visited Berlin several times before. I sincerely enjoyed our mutual discussions about historical Prussia and Germany. It would be fantastic to see you again when you return to Berlin. Moreover, I would be more than happy to create another exciting tour for you.
Norri LederUnited States
Loved our tour with Alex. His knowledge of Berlin history is impressive. We loved that he took us to some interesting places we wouldn't have gone to otherwise - a square that had a memorial to Jewish fashion businesses shut down during World War II a small museum that was a former train station that people used to get cross between East and West Berlin before the wall fell. He could give interesting perspectives also because of his personal family history - having grown up in West Berlin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Norri, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. It was a true pleasure to be your family's Berlin guide. Take care.
Carolin HolbrookUnited States
Es war toll mit Alexander Berlin zu erkunden. Da mein Sohn kaum Deutsch spricht und meine Mutter kaum Englisch, hat er die Tour zweisprachig gemacht. Alexander hat viel Hintergrundwissen und hat uns Plätze gezeigt, die nicht auf dem 'normalen' Touristen-Plan sind.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Liebe Carolin, herzlichen Dank für die tolle Bewertung. Es war mir eine große Freude, Helga, Frederick und Dich in die preußisch-deutsche Geschichte zu „entführen“.
Robert MillerAnacortes, WA, United States
Alex is an excellent guide and we highly recommend his services. We were particularly interested in the post-WWII history of Germany. Alex's personal background of growing up in divided Berlin enhanced our understanding of this troubled era. Also, his professional life as a career military officer made his talks on the political background of the of modern Germany very impressive. In addition to his valued insight into modern life, his historical knowledge of Berlin is deep.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bob, Your rating and your wonderful words make me very happy. Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to meet the four of you and to be your Berlin guide. I hope, you will have a great time in Europe and a safe trip home. Yours, Alex
Robert SchwarzenbachUnited States
