While in Berlin, I had the opportunity the take a tour with Fat Tire Tours. Fat Tire Tours offer a range of tours in different by wheels in different cities across the world. In Berlin, I took the Third Reich & Nazi Tour, and I was looking forward learning more about the history of Germany and specifically Berlin. The Third Reich & Nazi Tour takes you back in time to Berlin during the World War 2 and Hitler’s reign.

While on the tour, I was able to share my travel stories but also hear those of my fellow travels. This is definitely one of the reasons I would recommend join tours when travelling solo. You meet different people, some that you can potentially continue your adventures with. Overall, I had an amazing tour and above all, I would like to say thank you to Campbell for being so much fun and so knowledgeable.
