I was recently in Berlin with my adult children. We had the good fortune to have an exceptional guide, named Dora, take us on a tour titled, The Story Of Berlin. She was full of such wonderful information and made every stop come to life...More

Berlin greeted us with a snowstorm and sub-freezing temperatures for the morning of the tour. Our guide Finn effectively conducted the tour by alternating between indoor discussions of the history and context and outside walks to see the sights we had been discussing. Our conversations...More

Our tour with Finn Ballard was excellent. Finn had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of the wall. He used a tablet to add informative material. He was a very pleasant guide and we would unhesitatingly recommend him and the tour. The Johnson family SYDNEY.

No Berlin neighbourhood is more popular with the young
and jet-set crowd than the old worker's district of
Neukölln. With so many Turkish settled here, the area
became known as “Little Istanbul“. Today the
percentage of foreigners is still high and visitors
still frequent the Turkish shisha bars. In the
daytime, they also visit the designer shops and sit by
the canal in one of the street cafés up and down
