We are currently offering virtual experiences in Berlin, Barcelona, Madrid and Venice – with Rome, Edinburgh and many more coming soon!
Our guide Matt is a history major. His in depth knowledge of the events of WW2 and the cold war period enriched our tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Berlin and look forward to returning to discover more about this wonderful city.
I was delighted with this virtual tour. It was very informative, and I was surprised by the amount of knowledge passed within this short hour trip. The tour guide was just great, and I can recommend taking trips with Taylor. Hope to see all the beautiful places we've heard about once we arrive in Berlin, someday...
We just finished this tour with Jonathon as our tour guide. His knowledge of Berlin and the history was impressive and we learnt so much more than we thought we would. Jonathan totally amused us with his jokes and side remarks, very entertaining and enjoyable.
The puns were fun! Jonathan made the visit very interesting and informative interlaced with funny quips and puns. We saw all the key sights of interest as well as a superb shopping precinct.
