Luxury Tour in Berlin, Germany
Thusrsday, 22nd March, 2018
My 11-yr old daughter is fascinated with stories of war, politics, kings, regimes. The whole game of thrones! What better introduction to the past could we get than from the historian himself. Germany – the real story. The rise and fall of the Nazi rule. The remnants of the bloodiest war in the world. The partition of East and West Berlin. It is one thing to watch it all on Discovery, and a totally different feel to experience it. Kiara was in awe as she went trigger happy, making notes all along. Thank you Vibrant Holidays, for this wonderful “live in the past” tour. And an A+ in History as well!
