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.

The guide, Chris, was great and very interesting. We had some issues getting there and mixed the first stop and there was no way to contact the guide to find out where to catch up with them. We wandered around until we found them, but we almost missed the whole tour - even though we pre-booked and paid.

The tour was great. It hit all of the major sites and was a great way to be introduced to the city. Our guide, Steve, was very engaging. He was knowledgeable and funny and very accommodating. We learned a lot about Berlin and Germany in just 4 hours. My wife and I are over 65 and we were a little apprehensive about the length of the tour. But it was not difficult at all. We were able to sit at times and had a little coffee break in the middle. We highly recommend this tour and our guide, Steve. Especially if you can go on your first day in Berlin.

We did this tour as a team event, as we had some team members joining us from abroad who had never been to Berlin. Heidi made it thoroughly enjoyable with lots of interesting and fun facts. Most of the group is living in Berlin and even we all learned something new that day. I would definitely recommend!
