My Most Popular Tour: Discover Berlin's Top Sights

"Matti really made the tour come alive with an in depth knowledge of his home city. Simply going around the sites does not compare to the way Matti was able to interact with the group and share with us family experiences of living in the East before the Wall came down. Berlin is a fascinating city and this tour is the ideal way to get acquainted with it."
