This tour was artsy and enlightening ... we enjoyed exploring lesser known areas of Berlin and our guide - a Russian citizen who had been living in Berlin for over a decade - was an artist herself and very knowledgeable about the art community in Berlin. We covered a LOT of ground and it's important to note that this tour covers completely different sites than any of the traditional Berlin "highlights" tours (b/c we also did one of those). That being said: while it was nice to have a private tour experience, we would recommend that this be a "small group" tour (for 5-8 people maybe) instead of a private tour for just the two of us. It was the most expensive tour we did, -- at almost 3x the cost of the other walking tours and excursions we partook in during our visit -- and while we learned a lot and loved seeing all of the street art, we're not sure if it was entirely worth the price

Our guide Miha was very friendly and knew bunch of interesting facts about the city and its tiny details. He indeed showed us the alternative side of Berlin and recommended some nice restaurants, bars and exhibitions to visit. Thanks for the experience again!
