Overview

This tour is run by an English archaeologist who moved to Berlin 7 years ago, after falling in love with a German girl. We are still together (with a baby now!!) but....I have also fallen in love with Berlin and it's incredible history. I have been working as a professional guide for 5 years now.
With my educational and professional background, and the fact I have had a life-long passion for Second World War History, I am equipped to give exceptional tours. No tour is the same and I can vary and focus the subjects and themes depending on the guests needs, wishes and ages.
I am extremely easy going and you will see that I enjoy giving tours immensely. I can honestly say I feel privileged to be able to do so in this city, when you consider the important and sensitive history that has occurred here.
