From the comfort of your private vehicle, enjoy the 2 1/2-hour ride through the scenic, lake-filled state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. After arrival in Berlin, your expert guide will bring the city and its vivid history to life, as you experience Berlin's many "must-see" sights. Berlin has many layers of dynamic history and you will experience its medieval origins, its Prussian and Nazi past, its legacy as a divided city, and the constant change that is New Berlin.

You will be met by your driver who will take you through the countryside of Germany and bring you to Berlin, where you'll meet your personal guide. Your guide will be a real character of the city, someone who studied history or architecture, has years of experience in guiding, and is eager to show you his hometown in a vivid and in-depth conversation.

If there is something specific you would like to see or a part of history you are keen to learn more about, please let us know beforehand or tell your guide upon your arrival. The lunch break will be organized around your wishes.

When visiting Berlin you will be awed by the contrasts of past, present, grit, glamour, a tangible history, and monuments erected to memorialize the past with an eye to the future.

Our tour begins with a drive through the East of Berlin, where we will stop at the Berlin Wall Memorial to see some remaining parts of the Wall.

A drive along the famous Boulevard Unter den linden will bring us to the beautiful old Prussian buildings and palaces found in this area.

We will have a look at the Victory Column in Tiergarten, built to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War and learn about the new governmental district including the Reichstag (German Parliament) and the Brandenburg Gate, the quintessential symbol of Berlin, built in 1789.

No trip to the city is complete without a close look at Berlin's Nazi history, beginning at the memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (Holocaust Memorial). We continue on to the site of Hilter's former bunker, the old SS, SA and Gestapo headquarters (Topography of Terror's site) and Göring's former Ministry of Aviation.

You will see Potsdamer Platz and experience the innovative state-of-the-art architecture of Berlin’s sole skyscrapers, which transformed the skyline of an area that was bombed during World War II, and lay desolate just west of the Berlin Wall for the entire period of the city’s division.

We'll pass by Checkpoint Charlie and have a look at the Gendarmenmarkt, one of the most beautiful places in Berlin and see the Alexanderplatz and the Berlin TV Tower, which was built by the East German government from 1965-1969.

Remember, your guide’s aim is to make your tour as pleasurable and comfortable as possible. Ask as many questions as you like, stop for coffee whenever you please, and prepare to discover Berlin’s many secrets at your own pace!
