At Berlin Private Tours we always encourage our clients to give us feedback as it helps us constantly improve and streamline the services we offer. Here is a selection of comments from previous guests. You can also see our online independent reviews on Tripadvisor. Do get in touch with us if you have any questions.
We found Pen extremely informative, personable and articulate as she pointed out and discussed the various sites on our tour. Her answers to our questions were intelligent and well thought out. She accommodated our individual interests most. We recommend Pen as a guide (and probably anything else she sets her mind to) without reservation.
If you really want to learn about Berlin then and now, Pen has to be your guide. She knows Berlin’s history and is clear and articulate in her explanations. She has wonderful pictures of many of the sites you will visit and what it looked like during Hitler or when the Berlin wall was up. This gives you a wonderful perspective of exactly how things were and it makes you really feel part of that history. Besides all this, Pen is a delight to be with. She is outgoing, enthusiastic, enjoys her work and has this wonderful Australian accent.
I booked a tour with one of Pen’s fellow guides – Pen wasn’t available so she very kindly set us up with another local guide called Greta. I had booked this as a surprise gift for my fiancé’s birthday and it was absolutely perfect. Greta pitched the content perfectly for his level of knowledge and we got to see both the popular tourist sites as well as some of the lesser known ones that many don’t get to. Greta’s knowledge was extensive, far beyond what I’ve experienced before on the free tours. Big thanks to Pen for organising. Highly recommend.

My two tours with Penelope (effectively a combination of “Off the Beaten Track” and “Berlin’s Greatest Stories”) were fantastic. Penelope’s encyclopedic knowledge of Berlin, combined with her enthusiasm and intelligence, made my time in Berlin a highlight of my recent holiday. Whether you are looking for a brief introduction to Berlin, or a detailed look at places most tourists miss, Penelope will give you a tour to remember and will enrich your Berlin experience.

Touring ‘alternative Berlin’ with Penny was a delight. She had great passion and knowledge of the Kreuzberg area and the Turkish influence, squatters, street art, stories of the locals and a ‘must see’ conclusion at the East Wall Gallery. Penny was a delightful and vibrant tour guide who we would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Penelope is a great person and an excellent guide! Great historical knowledge, sensitive to the group’s needs and interests and very efficient in managing the tour. We strongly recommend her!
Safely arrived at home we can look back at a great weekend in Berlin. We had a very inspiring few hours with you and we will certainly recommend you to friends and colleagues visiting Berlin!

I can’t thank Pen enough – she is very knowledgeable, engaging and extremely friendly. She took care of my board members with care and enthusiasm, I’m so pleased to have found her and I can’t recommend her highly enough …. thank you for a wonderful experience.

“Unmissable Greatest Stories of Berlin”. I booked the “Greatest Stories of Berlin” Tour with Pen for a group of 9 people. Pen is so knowledgable about Berlin and its history and managed to engage every one of us throughout the whole tour. Her passion and enthusiasm is amazing – would highly recommend!
