I took this tour with Dan mere days after moving to Berlin and it could not have been a better introduction to the city. He really weaved the story of Bowie's adventures in the divided city with the history of post-war Berlin so well! Even now, months later I am drawn to the

Thanks for the warm review. It is so encouraging to our whole Berlin team of expert guides at a time when our touring is only slowly recovering from the pandemic freeze on travel. It's good to remember that we have an impact! Glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you in the future on our Insight Cities tours in Prague, Vienna, Salzburg and Budapest.
