Matthew was a real expery in this area and had many inside stories to tell about what you can’t hear in history lessons at school. Highly recommended tour!

The tour was AMAZING! Much better than expected! It was incredibly interesting and entertaining, a 100% recommended if you are in Berlin and want to learn a bit more about Hitler’s path into destruction.

We did our tour with Mark! He was very engaging and his knowledge of the area and the history surrounding the city itself. The tour was very thought provoking and informative. I would definitely recommend it!

We have been traveling through Europe for the past few years engaging in history tours. Matthew’s tour of Berlin, taking us through World War II, was the best we’ve had. He was full of information and communicated with very good energy. My two children, tween and teen, equally loved it. The most thoughtful surprise was that it rained, and he had rain ponchos for all of us! I would hire Matt again for other tours of Germany.

This guy knows his shit about ww2. Good lively storyteller from UK that can tell you facts or opinions about Hitler and ww2. I understand the pain behind it, and of course no fault of the guide, but I actually thought there was a bunker you could enter, where Hitler ended his days. That is just an ordinary parking lot today, that part of history has basically been erased, but there was plenty of other things to look at, and get the history behind one of the most central areas of ww2. You won't regret this tour.
