Alternative Berlin with JR

I loved everything about this tour! I’ve discovered new things about Berlin that I’ve never paid attention to before. JR shares lots of unique and fun information, and he’s super easy to understand. The time went by very quickly and having a small break during the tour was a nice idea. Plenty of opportunities for taking pictures of street art. 🙂

He showed us the Berlin which I was always imagining about. It was a cool and fun tour. Definitely recommended. Also, JR made the tour smooth and easy even tho you need to take a metro to other place in the city.
