Berlin may be a big city, but there's lots which can be seen best by foot. A number of operators run walking tours with English-speaking guides, mainly native speakers, ensuring you'll actually understand what they're saying.
New Berlin Tours is one of the larger companies providing walking tours. They offer a variety of tours around the main sights in Berlin and surrounding locations such as Potsdam and Sachsenhausen. Tours are mainly English but some Spanish and German is available too. They're particularly famous for their so-called "free tours" which anyone can take part in at no charge - though the guides would very much appreciate a tip at the end if you enjoyed the walk.
