Matt was a confident and knowledgeable guide on a full day’s overview / introduction tour - an excellent taster - and, as you ask who was with me but don’t provide a button for “strangers at the beginning, well melded by Matt”, I have ticked solo. Well worth it

Extremely Interesting Tour

Matthew Menneke did an excellent job on this tour. He provided a very interesting commentary at each of the stops along the way and during the drive. I am surprised that there is not more information available about this battle and to be able to stand in the places where Marshall Zhukov stood as well as where the German forces were dug in was both eye-opening and humbling considering how violent and horrific this battle was. Matthew's knowledge of this battle is thorough and detailed. I highly recommend this tour and, of course, Matthew as a guide.

Best WW2 Tour in Berlin!!!
Joseph_H
, Nov 2019
As a weekender in Berlin, I highly recommend this!! This was my first tour over the length of 3 hrs, and the first time touring a battlefield. Fortunately, thanks to the expert knowledge, research, and insight of a former soldier, Matt made this the best tour I have ever been on! Initially I was skeptical I could learn anything new, or that this was just another run-of-the-mill tour that covered topics I was already well-versed in. Thankfully, my concerns were shattered, just like the German 9th Army was after 4 intense days of unthinkable combat and feat-of-arms. This tour visits the museum that is dedicated to this specific phase to the Battle of Berlin (no other tour does this), visits the mass graves of those soldiers who fought from both sides, and several key locations of the battle (there is no other tour offering this). Needless to say, this was a very well an in-depth analysis and retelling of the important battle, and not once single second became boring thanks to the unique visiting of primary locations where history happened, or was made. For instance, in the forest of Reitwein, I was able to stand in the exact position Marshal Zhukov, commander of 2,500,000 Soviet Troops, was at on April 16th of 1945, and I discovered the trenches and bunker that still stand. Elsewhere, I was taken to a now ordinary highway/field where the key last stand of the German 3rd Battalion prevented retreating wounded from massacre, destroying 100 T-34s in under a few hours. You will be taken to hill defenses, memorials, the "Killing Field" where the initial force of 1,000,000 attackers were halted by no more than 80,000, and drive along the same route as the advancing Soviets took on the B1 highway into Berlin. This is a spectacular tour that is well worth the price of admission. And you get to stop to have lunch in the beautiful town of Seelow, although lunch is not covered :). I would like to thank Matt once again for the top class tour, and his professionalism. On the day of my tour, it turned out that I had been the only person to sign up, but nonetheless, I was able to visit every sight of the battle and examine and explore it in detail, and Matt provided excellent conversation. Do not hesitate to book this tour if you are on the fence: I've always wanted to visit the site of this battle, and tried to imagine what it must have been like. This gave me the opportunity to feel history by being directly there, something that no price can be put on. 10/10!!!!!!
