What to expect
Your alternative Berlin tour starts by meeting your private guide at Hackescher Markt, from where you'll visit a courtyard that contemporary artists love. Learn about the history of this spot and the meanings of the art pieces here. As you continue on, listen to your guide's stories about Berlin's neighborhoods, and stop by the 'Pink Man,' a graffiti piece by the artist Blu that protests the gentrification of parts of the city. Pass by the East Side Gallery, where international artists left their marks on pieces of the Berlin Wall; visit a small theater known for its 1970s flair; and experience a piece of local life as you enjoy a Club-Mate drink. Other sights include Haus Schwarzenberg, Kottbusser Tor, Gorlitzer Park, the Schlesi tower, 'Leviathan' by Blue, Oberaumbrücke, Urban Spree, RAW Tempel, and Intimes Kino. Your tour ends near Boxhagener Platz, where you can enjoy the urban vibes of Berlin before saying goodbye to your guide and continuing the rest of your day on your own. Feel free to ask your guide any questions, as well. By the time you part ways, you'll have gained knowledge about Berlin's street art scene, trendy areas, and how the city's alternative side is changing.

Berlin with a pocket rocket
Sep. 2019
Betty is an energetic citizen of Berlin.Tapped in to the
counter-culture and street art scene which was perfect for us. She is
really good at setting historical context for the way things are and
how people live in Berlin as a result of WWII and pre and post the
Berlin Wall.She knows her neighbourhoods, their quirks and charms. As
we walked we were looking up, looking down at large and very small
street art pieces.Betty is a deep thinker who looks for meaning in
everyday things and challenged us to do the same. She's refreshing,
charming, dynamic and fun.We left feeling enlightened, and just that
little bit closer to the vibe of Berlin. Betty's perfect.

The real Berlin
Sep. 2019
We enjoyed very much a personalised tour by Uygur of some of Berlin's
street art. My wife is disabled and Uygur structured our tour to take
account of her difficulty walking. It was fascinating and Uygur was
informative and helpful, and we learned a lot about day-to-day life in
Berlin. Highly recommended.

Leah the Berlin Whisperer
Jul. 2019
I want to preface my thoughts with an apology for my tardy review.We
still had a month of intensive travel after our tour with Leah & re
entry has been slow. Poor Leah got hit with lousy tourist stick by
getting stuck with us because we had been up since 3am to catch a
flight to Berlin (note to self:don't book a tour upon landing if
you've had only a few hours sleep - duh).However, she was absolutely
charming & so very patient with me & my 19-year old son - aka The
Grumpy Twins.She gently guided us to the most fascinating corners of
Berlin with deep knowledge of the 'scene' & absorbing descriptions of
the detailed tapestry that is Berlin.We came away with such respect
for how this city is evolving.Leah was able to weave the events of the
past into the emerging fabric of this complex city & - because of her
- we fell in love with Berlin.She's calm, grounded & has a very
soothing way about her.She was perfect for us.I highly recommend Leah
& thank her, so very much, for taking such compassionate care of two
weary travelers!

Total waste of time
Aug. 2019 • Family
This tour is nothing like how it reads.Started in an artist alley which was interesting but went totally down hill from there. Walked for 2 hours in the heat and saw about 4 murals on walls (see more on a train), a run down dirty neighbourhood full of graffiti not art, walked through a park that was full of drugged out or drunk groups...people trying to sell us marijuana...was terrible. Just as we left this drug park, squades of police came to arrest the people. Walked again on a filthy, urine soaked bridge..and ended up at East side gallery.
East side gallery is great (Berlin Wall with commissioned murals) but you can walk, boat ride or grab a train to this)
Never got offered or given the 2 drinks stated on the tour.
Do not take children on this tour..really didn't feel safe.
We stopped our tour 30 mins early as so bad. Went to a taxi stop to get out of the neighbourhood, our guide Pedro jumped in the front seat and directed the driver to take him back to where the tour started first..quite a long way out of our way..Very unprofessional.
Worst tour ever

Aug. 2019
The tour is great, all the things we passed and stopped at, were things
I really liked seeing. It made me fall in love with Berlin. Dave is an
awesome guy. He gave me a lot of good tips of places to visit during the
rest of my stay in Berlin, which made my stay even better.

Aug. 2019 • Couples
What a fantastic way to see and explore the hidden gems of Berlin and it really was an alternative tour. Our guide-Uygur-was fantastic, very knowledge, interesting and engaging.

If you want to see the other side of Berlin, the art, the graffiti and where the locals hang out, this is a must.

Highly recommend.
