Really interesting and informative tour with Anastasia.The tour went for 3 hours and I really enjoyed her company.We visited a shop selling interesting books and zines and she gave an insight in to the various social movements of the past.We visited lots of city murals,graffiti and even went to an art exhibition.It was great!

The tour was very well arranged. The meeting point was easy to find. We were going to be delayed by 5 minutes so we informed the operator and we quickly got a response from them saying that was not a problem. We explored the kreuzberg kiez in detail and saw many hidden artworks as well as heard many interesting stories.

It was so nice to have this guided but self-reliant tour around the hidden gems of Berlin! Fully recommend!

If you need funny and beautiful photos, you've come to the right place ;-)
