Full description
This experience is essential to anyone who is serious about exploring the best of Berlin. Start your day by heading over to the Reichstag, Germany’s parliament building. Stroll through Tiergarten, Berlin’s vast central park, past the memorial to the Sinti and Roma murdered by the Nazis, to arrive at the 18th-century landmark Brandenburg Gate. Get your local host to take a picture of yourself with this symbol of German reunification. From here, follow the former course of the Berlin Wall, pausing to ponder the unspeakable horrors of WW II by the Holocaust Memorial. From there, let your local host guide you to Potsdamer Platz where you can admire masterpieces of contemporary architecture. Walk past Checkpoint Charlie and discover the free outdoor history exhibit. At this point, you might want to refuel. Your local host will suggest some good options for lunch around Friedrichstrasse, which are loved by locals. Make sure you also allocate some time to check out some quirky shops, artisan chocolatiers and designer stores in this area. Breathe in the history while you walk towards the Berlin Cathedral. According to your preferences, your local host will suggest other attractions and activities for the afternoon. Berlin has a lot to offer to art lovers, family travelers, foodies alike. This experience is great for all ages. Book this meet-up with a Berliner and you will be contacted within 24-hours with questions about your preferences and interests. A like-minded and vetted local host who knows the city intimately and shares your interests will be handpicked and assigned to you. Replicate the experience of spending time in a city with a friend who lives there as the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and discovering it through local lens. Based on the things that you would like to see and do, a personalized and bespoke itinerary will be built just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. During the exploration, if you feel like changing direction, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary. You will be able to arrange a meeting point and time with your host in the most convenient place for you. Enjoy discovering amazing spots in Berlin that you don't know about and are difficult to find in any guidebook or on the Internet as they are lesser-known to the crowd but loved by locals. Let your private local host show you the Berlin you will love.

Beautiful time in a rich local experience

My local tour guide was an Italian resident in Berlin named Anna. Anna was allocated to me based on my preferences through pre-planning emails. I met my local guide at the lobby of my hotel, we had a quick overview and 8 hour later I was a local "Berliner" one can say. Anna was very sincere, knowledgeable and knew Berlin by heart. She informed me of things about the city and her experience with Berlin that I believe tour guides will not pull off. We walked from the East to the West of Berlin, had a boat tour, visited the local market, the main tourist attractions, jumped on metros as well. It was really a perfect experience. I highly recommend asking for Anna, as she really brings the fun to the tour but a bit of advice: wear good shoes as there will be LOTS of walking.

The company, City Unscripted, stated in an email to me that they would contact me two days before the tour for final arrangements. That never happened, so I called them on the 17th, the night before the tour. They could not make contact with the local guide, but told us to wait in the hotel lobby at the hotel at 8:45 AM. The scheduled pickup time at the hotel was 9 AM. No one showed up. At 9:30 AM I called City Unscripted in the UK to tell them no one came for us. Once again, they tried and could not contact the local guide. They asked me at 9:30 if I would like to cancel and get a refund. I said yes. They stated they would send a confirmation email. I never got that either, even though I made sure when talking to them they had the correct email address. I sent them an email yesterday asking about the confirmation email regarding the refund. So far they have not responded. This was our first trip to Berlin and we only had one day to sightsee.
