Full description
See historic Berlin on a walking tour through the city's most significant places. Take an informative, thought-provoking journey that brings the history of Berlin alive. Cover all of Berlin's main sights, from the Berlin Wall to the site of Hitler's bunker. Visit the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Cathedral, Palace Square, and much more. Choose to take either a shorter or longer tour with a private guide to fit your schedule. Your guide’s superb story-telling skills will weave the themes of Prussian, Imperial, Nazi, Cold War and 21st-Century Berlin into a detailed narrative, stretching from Berlin’s swampy origins in medieval times, to the controversies over the design of the memorial, to the tragic story of the murdered Jews of Europe. Along the way, meet characters who have left their imprint on the city, including Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich, and JFK. Stand above the spot where Hitler took his life in April 1945, and see where daring escapes took place across the Berlin Wall before its momentous fall in 1989.

    The guide for our tour was exceptionally good. He was friendly, knowledgeable and shared information in a very interesting way. He demonstrated a passion for what he was sharing - he did not come across at all as a paid guide but as somebody that wanted to share what he knew and to get his clients excited.

    Meeting place was exactly as per the instructions. Our Excellent excellent guide Sarah. brought the history to life and her passion was tangible! She also gave really good suggestions for further activities and museum visits! Well Worth the tour if you can’t get a full day tour with more time at each site. We spent the next day at places we wanted more time at.
