This tour was excellent – the tourguide was an engrossing storyteller, and very knowledgeable about all the sights on the tour. We spent a week exploring Europe, and this tour was by far the best thing we did. “The highlight of our trip around Europe” 5 out of 5, Oct 31, 2011

Berlin has become one of the world’s most exciting cities
Let us show you how Berlin has become one of the world’s most exciting cities!
Since Berlin was first mentioned in 1237, it has experienced battles, wars, fascism and tyranny, communism and divide and is now one of the key locations of creativity, culture and party in a dynamic and changing Europe.
The majority of our tours start in Pariser Platz which is the home of the Brandenburg Gate. The monument itself is the icon of Berlin and formed part of the border between divided East and West Berlin since the end of the war in 1945.
Visit a city which is still establishing itself after over 30 years of division, seen through the eyes of some of the best tour guides in the industry, all of whom have chosen Berlin as their home.
Our famous FREE TOUR will cover all the main sights, and our knowledgable tour guides will explain how the have all played their key parts in forming Berlin as it is today.
Our FREE TOUR offers a great way to see the city, and is designed to provide a funny and enthusiastic overview of the city, no matter your budget – walking three and a half hours through the city of Berlin, we will cover Pariser Platz, The Brandenburg Gate, The Reichstag, The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, The Site of Hitler’s Former Bunker, Luftwaffe HQ, The 17. June Memorial, The Berlin Wall, The Former SS Headquarters, Checkpoint Charlie, The 1920s Cabaret Mile, Gendarmenmarkt, Bebelplatz, The Old Royal Boulevard, Neue Wache, The TV Tower and Museum Island.
With a city so rich in culture and history, you may also wish to join us on one of our select tours. Our select tours of Berlin let you explore more thoroughly, a specific area of the city’s history or culture.
One of the most popular tours we offer shows you the alternative side of Berlin, Berlin’s gritty and grungy counter-culture, its squats, its graffiti and the resistance of the corporate expansion Berlin is experiencing.
If you’re particularly interested in the Holocaust, we can take you to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp just outside of the city, in the village of Oranienburg, we will show you the former Labor Camp and discuss the terrible things which happened there. It’s a difficult thing to do, but such a sombre place of reflect needs to be seen to be believed. Equally our Third Reich tour will show you Berlin from a quite different perspective from the one you can see today.
Maybe you’d like to delve deeper into more recent Cold War history and learn about life in the GDR, (former East Germany). In this case you should come on our Red Berlin tour where we’ll cover Husemannstrasse, the famous propaganda street, Stalinallee (Karl Marx Allee), Berlin Stasi Headquarters (home to the largest spy network the world has ever seen), Ghost stations, Embassies of four Cold War Powers, Berlin Wall Crossing Points (the Palace of Tears), The East Side Gallery, Ostalgia, The Berlin Wall and the Death Strip.

We mustn’t forget Berlin’s nightlife. People come to Berlin from all over Europe, and all over the world to experience Berlin.
