We had an outstanding 3+ hour walking tour of Berlin with Peter Bijl through Insight Cities. He was extremely knowledgeable and very generous with his time. A wonderful way to learn about and experience the city and its history.

For Bowie fans, this is not only a great insight into Bowie's time in Berlin, but a glance back into the divided city of the early 1980s...with musical accompaniment.

My husband and I took the intro to Berlin tour with Dan in September. It was very enjoyable and educational. As an Interior Designer, I really enjoyed the architectural slant that Dan put on the tour.

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
