Overview

Discover Berlin’s history on this 4-hour tour with your own private driver and guide. See Berlin’s historic center, walk through the Brandenburg Gate, see the Reichstag, drive through the old border at Checkpoint Charlie, and come to terms with Berlin’s dark Nazi past at the book-burning memorial. Your guide will show you all this and more as you uncover the tortured past and fantastic present of Germany’s capital city, all from the comfort of your private air-conditioned vehicle.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour of the city
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
  • Family friendly

Your day will start when your guide/driver picks you at your hotel. Recommended start time is 10am, though you may choose any time that works best for you. On the way to Germany’s parliament building, the Reichstag, listen to your guide's overview of Berlin’s 800-year history. Learn about the city's humble beginnings and its development to the creative place it is today. Pass the gleaming Hauptbahnhof (train station) then see the Brandenburg Gate. From there, head to Berlin’s most famous Holocaust memorial, the poignant "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe."

Stand above the remains of Hitler’s bunker, where the dictator committed suicide in 1945. Get a taste of what life is like in modern Berlin at Potsdamer Platz, where skyscrapers soar above the plaza. Follow the path of the Berlin Wall, past the former headquarters of the Nazi SS and the Gestapo and through the former border of East and West Berlin at Checkpoint Charlie. Re-enter what was once East Berlin and see the beautiful city square, the Gendarmenmark, while you learn about Berlin’s 17th-century struggle through the 30 Years’ War, and how the city was brought back to life afterwards.

Visit other highlights including Unter den Linden, Bebelplatz, Museum Island, the Berlin Cathedral, and the famous "Karl Marx Allee," built in the early days of the East German regime as a monument to Stalin. See the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall and the East Side Gallery, covered from top to bottom and end to end in paintings that celebrate the peaceful revolution of 1989. The half-day tour concludes with you being driven back to your hotel or another location of your choice.

Our tour guide Nathan met us promptly in the lobby of our hotel to pick us up for the 4 hour tour of Berlin. He was fantastic! His knowledge about the history of the city was impressive. There was no question that he could not answer. He even brought a laminated folder with important maps and historical photos to assist in teaching us about what we were seeing. We visited Museum island, The Brandenburg Gate, The Jewish Memorial, The Berlin Wall, the site of Hitler’s bunker, and Checkpoint Charlie. It is evident that Nathan LOVES the history of the city and enjoys sharing his knowledge with visitors! Bravo to you Nathan! What a wonderful private tour!!

We saw everything we wanted to see in Berlin and our guide, Rob, was very kind and informative! He picked us up from our hotel on time and we hit all the highlights of Berlin within four hours, even working in a bathroom pit stop and souvenir shopping.

Linsey was a delightful tour guide. My college-student daughter especially connected with her. We learned so much about Berlin while thoroughly enjoying her company.

Our guide was a student of history, and the tour was exactly what we wanted: more in depth information, rather than just visiting the tourist traps. Very knowledgeable guide.

Fabulous! Our guide was incredibly knowledge about Berlin and we were able to visit all the sites on our list - the Wall, Brandenburg Gate, Hitler's bunker, the Holocaust Memorial, Reichstag building, Grosser Tiergarten, Alexanderplatz, Checkpoint Charlie and some lesser known areas. He provided us with tips on restaurants and other sites to visit. We were not in Berlin for very long and this was the perfect way to get to know the city. Would highly recommend this tour!
