Most Helpful Customer Reviews
For those of you who, like me travel on my own and don't like to "tour" a city, Rick Steve has a sensible useful guide for Berlin. It divides the city into sections and creates easy to follow "walks" that will enhance your experience. Although he likes to be on the cheaper side of what I like to do, you can take is recommendations and decide for yourself if you want to go that way or spend some more. I loved the fact that when you eat in a restaurant that he recommends if you show his guide to the owner you will either get a discount or a nice chat.
