My wife and I did a one day guided tour of Berlin with Hilke and a driver in October. Hilke showed us the highlights of Berlin and adapted the tour to our interests. Her knowledge of the city and its history was exceptional. She is a lovely person and made us feel very welcome.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, thank you very much for the nice review. It was a pleasure to meet you and Laurel! All the best.

Wonderful day, Hilke was like touring with a very well informed friend. We felt we experienced a lot of Berlin and she even introduced us to curry wurst. Our driver, Peter, was fantastic. Once again Tours by Locals does a great job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Margaret, thanks you very much for the review. It was nice meeting you two. All the best!

It was our first time visiting Berlin. All 6 of us had an incredible time. Helka, our guide, was amazing as was Peter, our driver. Cannot say enough about this tour company and their personnel. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kelly, thanks for your nice review. Hope you are enjoying the sea. Greetings to all of you!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 full days we spent with Hilke & we highly recommend her! Hilke is personable, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Whereas we originally planned to go to Potsdam on the second day we quickly realized just how much there is to see in Berlin! Hilke was able to show us not just the tourist sites we didn't hit on our first day, but also some lesser known sites. With the next 2 days on our own, Hilke was great about giving recommendations to museums & sites she felt we would enjoy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marcia, it was a pleasure. Thank you very much for the review. Appreciated! All the best to both of you.

We five spent two full days with Hilke--Berlin and Potsdam. I don't know how we could have had a more informative, useful, enjoyable experience! We covered a lot of ground in a relatively short amount of time. I am reluctant to say she was "the best" TBL guide we have ever had, because they have all been excellent. However, she was A+, a 100 on a scale of 100 and we would recommend her to others without hesitation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hallo George, thanks a lot for your nice review. It was a pleasure to meet you all! Best regards.

This was one of the best ways to see a new City. We only had a couple of days in Berlin and finding all the stuff we saw on our own would have been impossible. Even if we had found it all, we might not have know much about what we were looking at. Hilke was great and very knowledgeable. Having a van to change locations was also great on tired feet. I highly recommend a private guide for visiting a new city. This was our 2nd guide from Tours by Locals and they both have been great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jennifer, thank you very much for the nice review. All the best!

Our tour 4/3/16 with Hilke in Berlin was awesome. We requested an intimate introduction to the city, and were delighted with Hilke's knowledge of the political history and willingness to discuss the issues frankly and in detail. Per our request she took us to several unusual sites, and deftly navigated around the half-marathon today. The driver was also great. 5 stars out of 5!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your nice review! Hope you are doing well and enjoy your stay. Greetings Hilke

Hilke is an exceptional guide and made Berlin come alive for us. She offered many little known facts in addition to discussing the history of Berlin. Peter was our driver and did a wonderful job in the traffic. We could not have had a better tour guide and Hilke was excellent in giving us a tour based on our interests. She is very knowledgeable and made our vacation something special. I would book with her again if we come back to Berlin!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Margaret, thank you so much for your feedback. Warm regards to both of you. Hilke

My family and I highly recommend this tour with Hilke. She was very informative and knowledgeable. She planned the day perfectly in order to show us as much of Berlin as we wanted to see. As well as give us time in many places to take photos and enjoy the sights. It was a great first day for us in Berlin as this tour helped us decide where and how we wanted to spend our next two days there. Plus our driver Peter was extremely courteous. Overall a great tour. Thanks Hilke!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leigh, thanks for your friendly feedback month ago. I wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year! Best regards Hilke

Hilke was wonderful ! As we were on a genealogy trip, she wanted to fulfill our most important goal - i.e. tour Berlin or look for our family homes, etc. We said anything we can find out about our family ! She immediately took us to the birth records building and searched the microfiche records. We fortunately found our family. We then visited 3 homes and their church. Before we completed the day, she had us try a special German meal and took us to a super market. Hilke did a superb job ! THANK YOU!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Olga, dear Bruce, I hope the copied files arrived. Thanks for your nice feedback and all the best for you. Warmest regards. Hilke
