One of the best city tours ever. At times it felt like I was listening to Christopher Isherwood himself! Brendan knows his subject and loves Berlin. If you can only do one city tour in Berlin do this one!

To actually walk the streets and visit the places, whilst learning the history of the people who did so many years before was truly fascinating. Brendan brought to life the colourful past of this part of Berlin. An excellent tour. Thank you Brendan.

In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political
west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to
famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may
have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays
tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest
