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.

    Canadian Chris was our guide and he was fantastic. He told in a fun and interesting way, which made it very nice to listen to him. The tour lasted almost 4 hours where we visited many important points in the center of Berlin. Chris knew a lot about the history and was even able to answer all questions.

    It was so good. Jonathan K was amazing. The best tour guide ever. He was so knowledgable. There was almost nothing he didn’t know. We caught him out with one question about something in Hamburg, so not even relevant, and he even googled it for us! He was brilliant. He was very funny and kept us interested throughout. He told such good stories about the different areas. I was so engrossed in everything he had to say. His English was brilliant, better than mine! 10/10 would recommend!

    Great city tour. Especially for newcomers to Berlin. After that you have a plan, historically and geographically. The following places were on our tour: Museum Island, Berlin Cathedral, Neue Wache, Humboldt University, Bebelplatz, Gendarmenmarkt, Stadtmitte, Checkpoint Charlie, remains of the Wall at Topography of Terror, place of the popular uprising in 1953, Führerbunker, Holocaust Memorial and last but not least - Brandenburg Gate. Had a very nice lady as a guide. (Unfortunately forgot the name) Offered what makes a good city tour, namely exciting stories about every sight.
