    20th March arrived at Hackescher Markt to be greeted by Mike. It was our first day in Berlin; the walk helped us to to find our way around the City and decide what we would like to go back to and investigate in greater depth during the remaining two days of our stay. Mike was most informative about the buildings and history which we found very interesting. At the end of the day we felt the expectations of the walk had more than been achieved. We would recommend this tour as a great way to start your stay.
