Guided tour of Pergamon and Neues Museum's a must
torutanaka, Jan 2020
Berlin Skip-the-Line Pergamon and New Museum Guided Tour Plus Museum Island Pass
Our (English-language) guide was a very knowledgeable Irishman who studies ancient history. 1.5 hours each in the Pergamon and Neues museums to ensure not to miss the most important displays as well as get a real understanding of things. Due to the season, neither museum was crowded (so the "skip-the-line" wasn't critical) but the level of understanding was much more enhanced. Highly recommended!!

Very good experience! The tour was amazing, the tour guide was good at his job, informative and fun to listen to. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a thing for ancient history! Tipp: The Pergamon Museum is open only 20% due to major renovations (80%), but the tour still is worth the money because you also visit the New Museum. The Pergamon Museum will be in renovations untill 2025 year. Wish you all good time in Berlin!

this tour was exceptional. The group was small (5) and our guide was informative, interactive and open to questions. The treasures in the museums made even better by the guide's expertise and knowledge.

Berlin Skip-the-Line Pergamon and New Museum Guided Tour Plus Museum Island Pass
We had a great tour. Mike knew so much about everything and shared the greatest stories. I loved all of his personal photos of buildings before reconstruction. i appreciate all the work that has been done to restore the buildings and the treasures. I recommend Mike as your guide for any tour he does. You will be rewarded. It is cognitive overload!!!!

The Pergamon is a very interesting, must-see museum and always has a huge line with a very long wait time. Walk right by with this pass. And also the other museums.

Museum Highlights in Berlin

Berlin Skip-the-Line Pergamon and New Museum Guided Tour Plus Museum Island Pass
The guided portion of the tour is short, with an emphasis on the two larger museums and their collections. We had a great tour guide (Jamie) and he has a lot of insight on the artifacts in the two museums. After the guided portion of the tour, we visited the Pergamon Panorama which is a relatively new exhibit and it was awesome. We had to pay a little as the entrance fee was not included in the tour package, but we did get a small discount since we had the tour package. We also visited the Altes Museum which was also great. We ran out of energy about 4 pm and could not make it to the remaining museums on package. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the day. It is worth the time and cost.

Pergamon/Neues Museum Guided Tour Berlin
933peterc, Jul 2019
Berlin Skip-the-Line Pergamon and New Museum Guided Tour Plus Museum Island Pass
Excellent 3 hour tour of key points of interest in Pergamon & Neues Museums in Berlin's Museum Island (you also get an all day pass to all 5 museums for the price of the tour - we subsequently toured the Bode museum as well in the afternoon). Thomas, our guide (archaeology student from US) was excellent - he was knowledgeable and had some very good stories about various exhibits at both museums (which cover an eclectic range of time periods & civilizations, e.g. ranging from Assyrian to Egyptian to pre-historic German)
