Chris contagia con su actitud a todos los asistentes y te envuelve en una mezcla de historia, actualidad y vivencias personales que te brindan una perspectiva alternativa de Berlín. Lo recomiendo a las personas que quieren empaparse un poco de la cultura alternativa de la mano de la historia de la ciudad.

Aunque es cierto que así se describe el tour, las paradas o puntos de interés a visitar no tienen ningún valor. Ver una discoteca cerrada a las 4 de la tarde no aporta nada. Y eso fueron 2 de las 4 paradas. La casa ocupa no se puede visitar y al centro artístico no pudimos entrar por ir en grupo por lo que a mi parecer el recorrido no tiene sentido. La "parada técnica" para tomar algo podría ser en uno de los muchísimos lugares increíbles que tiene Berlín como cervecerías o bares con ambiente, y sin embargo paramos en un restaurante asiático (donde probablemente le regalaban la comida al guía) y lo vimos comer, mientras el grupo esperaba. Eso se me hace muy poco profesional y no es buscar el interés del grupo sino el tuyo propio. La información era repetitiva y de poca calidad. Algunos consejos fueron buenos pero faltó complementarlo con un recorrido más interesante e información de más valor.
