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.

I’ve been on many walking tours in countless cities, but this one was by far the best. Our tour guide Ysanne wasn’t only knowledgeable about Berlin’s rich history, she presented the information in such a non-prescriptive, thought-provoking way, leaving each participant to make his/her own assessments and internalize it individually. Although Ysanne is a British expat, she serves as an excellent ambassador for a city she so obviously loves.

This was a very informative tour of Berlin and our guide Jess an American guy who has been living in Berlin for 7 years was amazing and made the tour so much more enjoyable. His knowledge of German history was second to none. He made the whole thing very interesting and before we knew it the 4 hour tour was over.
