Exclusive Customized Private Walking Tour


Explore the past and present of central Berlin!

EVERY INDIVIDUAL TOUR WILL BE CUSTOMIZED

As a native Berliner, self-taught history buff and professional tour guide of over 20 years' seniority and vast professional experience, I will be ready to customize your tour based on YOUR personal preferences and manage to create an intensive rewarding tour for you.

The itinerary can be adapted if you would like it to focus more on certain aspects, be it Prussian history, contemporary history (Nazi Dictatorship, World War II, Cold War), or old and new architecure, or specific orientation about the Berlin museums and memorials, or general orientation about the city as a whole.

Arrangement of a private limousine, van or coach (also for larger groups), is possible at extra cost.

A Recent Review of this tour

JB did an excellent job of providing us the history of Berlin. His knowledge of not only the city but of Germany's past was helpful to understand the current city. He did well tying the ancient history to the recent past and into the future. We made one short stop for pastries. I would suggest maybe adding one other short stop to rest. A lot of ground was covered during our tour. While we learned some about JB we would have liked to know a little more about him. Chuck
