"Just wanted to say how great your app is. It's rare to find such great content in a travel app, and it's clear it's been professionally researched, and as importantly, *written*." – Mike Butcher, Editor, TechCrunch Europe

"Indispensable. I normally don't bother to rate or review apps, but this one is worthy of the time to do both. In a sentence, this is the single best Travel App I've come across for the iPhone." – MagneticGravity in the App Store

"Berlin Essential Guide has everything, is well organized, and easy to use. We found it to be an invaluable tool for planning each day's itinerary. Museums, landmarks, shopping, restaurants...even Berlin's vibrant eclectic underground is thoroughly researched. I am enthusiastically recommending this app to anyone traveling to amazing Berlin." – ridemybike in the App Store

"I just used this app to guide me through a 3-day trip through Berlin. I really didn't need anything else (except more time!). The content is thorough and extremely useful. I particularly appreciated how much offline content was available, particularly the transit map and museum maps." – Madly99 in the App Store
