A full day private tour of Berlin with a minivan or limousine


There is plenty of time to explore the most important and significant sights and areas:

The historical city center with its famous Boulevard Unter den Linden, important squares, museums, theatres and churches.

The new government quarter with the Reichstag (Parliament), the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol of the once-divided city, and the memorials dedicated to victims of Nazi dictatorship, most noted the Memorial to the Murdered Jews in Europe.

We can dig deeper into history in the former main jewish quarter, or where we find the remains of central institutions of National Socialist persecution as well as the former Hitler's bunker area.

Cold War times are documented at the famous "Checkpoint Charlie" and with one of the few remaining wall pieces. Nearby is the new quarter "Potsdamer Platz" symbolising the transformation Berlin went through the last 25 years.

With the limo/minivan we can even reach City Center Westberlin, Palace Charlottenburg, and the wall East Side Gallery.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful day, Hilke was like touring with a very well informed friend. We felt we experienced a lot of Berlin and she even introduced us to curry wurst. Our driver, Peter, was fantastic. Once again Tours by Locals does a great job.
