I studied in Berlin, Rome, Paris and Washington, graduated in art history, german history and literature, and published two books, one of them about the turkish immigrants in Berlin. It's a big pleasure to meet people from all over the world here in Berlin.
I can offer you a program aimed at your individual interests and needs and accompany you to unusual places for an unusually normal price. You have the choice between a general overview or a theme orientated exploration of the city.
Either by bus, limousine, public transport, taxi, by bicycle or to foot: You determine the form of transport. Wether for two hours or more, a day or a week, there are plenty of things to discover.
A visit to Potsdam is also worthwhile. This small city with its quaint historical city center also offers an array of beautiful parks and royal palaces that belong to the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
Excursions outside of Berlin are also on the agenda, for example a visit to the huge lift lock in Niederfinow, or to the royal palace in Rheinsberg or to the Spreeforest, a biosphere reserve by UNESCO.
An insight into the extraordinary steer you towards the ideas behind the obvious.
Always competent and always witty.
A Recent Review of this guide
Hilke was a fantastic guide. I sent an itinerary of a previous tour we had taken and she developed a plan to show us different sights. She gave us ideas and options available. She also was adjust our route because of street closures due to a marathon. She was extremely knowledgeable about about the history of Berlin. Hilke is very personable and friendly and just fun to walk and talk with. Only gave five stars because I couldn't give more! I highly recommend Hilke for your walking tour of Berlin.
