Ah, Berlin! From humble village beginnings to the capital of the mighty kingdom, then empire, through darkness and division of the Nazi and Communist eras and back to its glory as the defining capital of European culture, trends and fanciness – what a place to tell stories about!
On our tour we will journey from the east to the west, crossing times, rivers and stories that, especially in the last 200 years, have shaped not only the city but the entire world. Let us tell you who that Alexander on the Platz was, is there really any medieval Berlin and what are the connections between American and German Martin Luthers. Add to that the Humboldt University, Checkpoint Charlie and our finishing point, the Brandenburg Gate with its memories from the time of the Wall and you will have learned the basics of Berlin’s identity.
We will also revisit the stories connected with the darkest moments of the city, nation and Europe: Adolf Hitler’s rise to power and the resulting war and the Holocaust – the Jewish Memorial will remind us of the fragility of the world around us.
On the upper note feel free to ask us about the local hip and party scene, many calling it the defining nightlife scene of Europe and the beginning of the world trends. Berlin has learned its lesson – let the feeling of inclusiveness, hundreds of cultures coexisting and shaping the world for better take you!

Me and my sister spent a great time at the tour with a wonderful guide Juliane! Despite the cold weather she gave us so much light, colours and insights in Berlin! We definitely recommend! Greetings frim Bulgaria!
We did the 3 hour tour with JR as our guide. He was knowledgable about Berlins past and present. His comments showed passion and he mixed private and histotic events in an engaging manor. Highly recommneded and we will join a tour with JR anytime in the future
Authentisch, Interessant, Lustig, einfach perfekt!
This tour was very interesting! Our guide Xavier was super professional and provided us with plenty of information! I really recommend him and the tour!
JR is the most entertaining, knowlegeable, interesting tourguide I ever had. I live in Berlin and have done quite a few tours. I had never a tourguide who could keep the focus and attention for almost three hours. The age of the group members varied from 15 up to 60. He was able to keep everyones attention. Stunning.
