  • The Brandenburg Gate – One of the most iconic sights in today's vibrant Berlin and the former royal entrance to Berlin of the Prussian royal family. It survived Napoleon, WWII and then was trapped in the middle of the Berlin Wall for almost 30 years. This former symbol of division is now an important symbol of Germany unity.

Why book with us?

We were picked up from our hotel and provided a wonderful tour full of historical and fun information. The company was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. We did the 4 hour Berlin tour and it was packed full but also not too full so that we couldn't enjoy it. It was perfect.

There were seven people in our group looking for a tour guide for a one-day tour of the highlights in Berlin. We're so glad we booked this tour. Mark packed a full day of sight-seeing for us, and answered all of our questions as well as showed many other sights we would have never known to ask to see. It was such an interesting (and fun) day for the 7 of us and we enjoyed every minute. We asked to be taken to a "traditional" German restaurant somewhere in the area of our tour for an authentic German meal and Mark could not have picked a better place! He was very mindful of our limited time and let us choose sites to visit or not and made additional suggestions. We were so happy with his suggestions for our day of touring. We highly recommend you choose Mark if you are looking for any type of a tour guide of won't be sorry you did.

Paul is a fantastic guide, I feel very lucky to have found him! He has such a great knowledge of berlin, so many interesting factoids. He was happy to let us go a bit slower, take photos and stop for snacks etc. I would definitely book again here!
