Hi I’m Darren, originally from the UK, but resident in Berlin for the last 7 years. I love this city as I’ve loved London, New York and Johannesburg. Each place had something to uncover and that’s what I like to do. I’m a History graduate so that side of things interests me, but as I discover each day, there is much more to Berlin – night and day. Whatever your thing, leisurely family strolls to quick buzz tours, river sunsets to raucous nights, I’m happy to show you around and share what I’ve learned about my city. I’ll try my best to make it both informative and entertaining. Willkommen in Berlin.

I am originally from Venezuela and have lived in the Caribbean, Spain and now Germany. I love the outdoors so protecting the environment is one of the main goals in my life which is why I am currently doing my PhD on sustainable water use at TU Berlin. This love for nature has also translated into a love for sports so I spend a lot of time bouldering, hiking through the forests that surround Berlin or biking; I enjoy taking people on my adventures and show them how beautiful our city is by bike and all the cool abandoned places there are to visit! I also play the Piano and Violin so I really like finding places with good music here in the city and free concerts! Last but not least, ever since I moved here and learned more about the city’s past I have been kind of obsessed with it and I truly like taking friends on walks and showing them how interesting this city is and all the different stages of evolution it has endured to be the great place it is now.

I originally come from Finland, but have been living in Berlin for 14 years. I landed here for a traineeship, but stayed because of love to Berlin - but also to a native Berliner. Now we are already four and living the exciting everyday life of two boys with tons of toy cars. I’m not a history freak, but Berlin’s past has so many layers, I got interested. The first-hand family stories of Eastern Berlin come alive by visiting the sites. If you want to see and hear more - then let’s go together! In Finland, I studied cultural anthropology and have an enthusiasm for languages and other cultures. That makes Berlin a place with lots of options for me: eating in a restaurant without a fork and a knife, visiting the Turkish market or maybe a museum. And when I feel that Finland is too far away, I buy a bag of salty licorice and dive in to Berlin’s Scandinavian atmosphere. Finnish is my native language, but no worries, fortunately I speak also German and English fluently.
