Only if you're a history buff Apr 07, 2011
I know most of the reviews are great, but this was my least favorite walking tour in two months of backpacking. If you are a history buff and really love seeing the sites you've read about or watched on t.v., go for it!

For those who just want to see a few key points in Berlin and don't need to know every tiny detail, I would not choose this tour. The length was supposed to be 3-3.5 hours and our tour was 4.5 hours. During the summer, the temperature was over 100 degrees Farenheit and there is no shade on this entire tour. My tour guide had all the charm of a junior high school history teacher and I found myself falling asleep.

Additionally, we stopped frequently for sites that aren't really sites. Example: We spent half an hour standing in a parking lot where Hitler's bunker used to reside 8 feet below us. It's just a parking lot... and Hitler's body was apparently burned where a clothing donation bin lies... I have no idea why these needed such a lengthy explanation.

Now the other New Europe tours I went on? Spectacular!

While I might have just had a bad experience, I would most certainly not recommend this tour if you are on a time crunch.

Free Tour Sep 27, 2008
New Berlin does a great job of showing you the sites of Berlin and best of all it's free! Our tour guide Mary showed us all of the important sites including the Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial, former site of Hitler's Bunker, the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie on this 3.5 hour walking tour. The guides are all working for tips and are not paid anything by thier company so they are on top of thier game. The company also offers other tours:

Free Bike Tours

Pub Crawl 12 Euro (more of a "club crawl")

Red Berlin Tour 12 Euro

Sachsenhausen Tour 14 Euro

Third Reich Tour 12 Euro

Potsdam Tour 14 Euro

Awesome Free Bike Tour in Berlin Jul 23, 2008
Once in Berlin me and my friend were trying to figure out how best to see the city and we thought that taking a bike tour would be a fun way to do it. We heard of this free tour and went to check it out. The tour itself was about 4.5 hours long. The bikes they gave us were nothing fancy but you felt safe enough to ride them around. The guides spoke very good english and were very imformative. We went on an extensive ride around the city stoping at various sites so our guide could point out their significance. I definitly would recomend it for anyone in Berlin. You wont be dissapointed. They also offer a similar walking tour if your not into biking.

YES there is a free walking tour in Berlin. It meets in front of the Dunkin' Donut Shop at the ZOO Station or at the Brandenburg Gate. You will need a ticket for the "S" and "U" bahn (I suggest you buy the "Berlin-Potsdam Welcome Card" 48/72hr 16/22 Euro.) if you meet at the Zoo.

They also have paid tours as well. The tour runs about four hrs with a stop for lunch.

If you are happy with the tour feel free to tip your guide.

Do one, or several of the New Berlin tours by the NEw Europe company, they do several some free, some you pay for they are excellent. We did the free bike tour which was 4 hrs long and takes you to all the main sites and attractions. We also did the pub crawl which cost 11 euros and then u get free vodka orange shots all night and free beer at the start, It was an amazing night and we met so many great people. They also do a tour to avrious other parts of berlin, such as to Sachsenhausen concentration camp which was a great day and really informative. I'd definately reccomedn anythign by this company

And If you go to Munich, amsterdam, paris London etc they do them all there as well. Well work it.

New Berlin Tours is Amazing! They give a FREE tour of Berlin. Now of course they ask for tips at the end but the tour is so good that u want to give them everything in ur wallet. Prepare ur walking shoes because the tours are between 5-6 hrs and ur walking the whole time, but we didn't even see the time elapse b/c the tours were really interesting. They give the free tour in the hopes that you will go back and take their other paying tours and it worked. We did the pub crawl the following night and met cool young people from around the world,and we took their Sachenhausen concentration camp tour. The concentration camp tour was very interesting and the most humble place I have ever been. It's hard to believe what happened there until u actually see it. it's still hard to believe after u've seen it actually.
