The intense history of Berlin can still be felt in the streets, and we all know that a city is more than a place, it’s a feeling. So get under the skin of East Berlin with one of our local Berlin hosts, weaving together its past history at profound landmarks like Tränenpalast and Checkpoint Charlie, and its more contemporary side in the street art and public spaces like the East Side Gallery.

Today, the area is known for its bohemian spirit and vibrant street culture, so get ready to discover the best of both worlds and see the real East Berlin.

You’ll explore the historic landmarks of this famous area, see where the Berlin Wall fell, as well as discovering some secret spots like local flea markets and independent book stores which have all contributed to the reshaping of an area once characterized only by the scars of WWII.

Darren´s Berlin Tour

Weather was a bit miz, but other than that a fabulous tour round some of Berlin sites. Darren was thoroughly entertaining and full of interesting anecdotes on the history of Berlin and I/we would thoroughly recommend Darren to all. Brilliant city, and great time had by all.

A great introduction to Berlin

We had a great host, Caspar, who looked after us well and tailored the tour to the wishes of the group. The pace and level of detail was just right. We saw some of the regular Berlin highlights, as well as others that were off the tourist trail. Excellent!
