    What to Expect
    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.

    With my parents in their 70s, my son 7 and my wife we had a great 4h30 with Gregory. He shared his passion for his city and its history even if it can be a complex one. Fully recommend it.

    We joined two Original Berlin Walks tours during our time in Berlin. On Friday evening we did the craft brewery/bar tour. It must be stressed, this was NOT a pub crawl but an appreciation of the history and current status of German beer manufacturing. Of...More
