The visit gives you a general view of Berlin's history through some of its most important landmarks by putting context in the way there were designed or took a place in Berlin's landscape. We had an excellent guide who really knew her history.
Our guide Labia rocked!
Charming, knowledgable and engaging!
Would do this again any day!
Perfect balance between ‘big history’ smaller anecdotes and thought-provocing heartfelt albeit nuanced comments. Is she really German or a robot? English was flawless!
The tour guide Lioba was excellent - she explained the history of Berlin drawing in lots of interesting facts and making thought provoking parallels to current politics. I would highly recommend for your first day in Berlin.
The tour offers a concise way to see all of Berlin's cultural sites. It ticked off so many of the sites I wanted to see and I felt I could easily navigate the city by myself afterwards!
Although the tour was 3.5 hours long it...More
I am really greatful for this experience. Even as a German, I learned a lot since the guide Fergus was really knowledgeable. He had all the human/emotional warmth, sensitivity and knowledge you need for this topic. Also linked the past to modern developments in Germany.
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.

Hi, you just go past them and the guide talks about them. Some of them are free to go in anyway and we found that doing the tour at the beginning of our time in Berlin was a good way of deciding what we wanted to go back and do at a later time. Would recommend this tour.
Hope this helps
