"Matti's enthusiasm for Berlin and its landmarks rubbed off onto all of us and made it one that will remain with me for a long time to come."

"Had he not mentioned the fact that he was a native german speaker, we would not have picked it. Matti had time for each and every question and as such the interests of the wide variety of our group were well covered."

"Our walking tour with Matti was outstanding! He was informative, enthusiastic and a pleasure to explore the city with. He had so much information to share and incorporated stories along with it so you could truly relate to what he was sharing."

"Matti, our tour guide, was extremely affable and knowledgable. He also had a great sense of humour. Highly recommended."

GUEST REVIEWS

"Matti greeted me with a hello and a smile. I knew then that the experience was going to be wonderful. I didn't ask many questions because as soon as I thought of one, he answered it before I could ask. He was extremely pleasant and polite, and I appreciated his sense of humor. His voice is smooth and easy to listen to. I wish I could take him with me and have him show me the rest of Europe. Ask for Matti. You won't be disappointed."

"What a brilliant tour and Matti was excellent. The tour flew over, Matti knew so much about the city. I really didn't think we would learn as much as we did. Great value for money Matti made it fun, entertaining, educational, cant say enough about him and the tour. Thank you Matti!"

"A balanced mixture of history and fun coming from a person that obviously loves and enjoyes his job!"

"Matti - Super guide who delivered the tour with perfection. He knew all that was to know of Berlin and delivered it in an informative and friendly manner."

"Matti was our guide and he was very enthusiastic, humorous and knew a lot of interesting historical facts. He told us just enough (to keep our attention continuously), and not to much (for the easily distracted ones)! It's a pity Matti wasn't my history teacher when I went to highschool because I would have had higher grades and a more interesting time in class! People just book this tour, you wouldn't regret a single minute."

"Matti being a local gave us several family anecdotes referencing his own family's life in East Germany which made a lot of things more relevant. I would gladly recommend this tour company and Matti as am excellent way to get a good idea of Berlin and it's colourful history."

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are private tours better?

Private tours are better due to personalized experiences tailored to your preferences. With a private tour, you dictate the pace, itinerary, and interests, ensuring a more intimate and flexible exploration of the destination. This allows for deeper engagement, specialized insights, and a focus on your specific interests, providing a more enriched and memorable experience compared to standardized group tours.

How much would a private Berlin tour cost?

Private Berlin tour costs can vary widely, generally falling between 50 and 100 euros per hour. However, the final price can be influenced by various factors like duration, group size, inclusions, and customization. Additionally, the use of private cars or buses for transportation during the tour can increase the overall cost. For accurate pricing based on your preferences and transportation needs, it's best to directly inquire with me.

What is the best way to get around Berlin?

The best way to get around Berlin is by walking. Berlin is very walkable, especially its center. We can easily cover all the main sights and stories by foot at a pace set by you. However, if you're having a hard time walking or want to explore farther areas, public transport or hiring a car might be more practical and can be arranged.

How much time do you need to tour Berlin?

The ideal duration for touring Berlin can vary based on individual preferences and the depth of exploration desired. To cover the major highlights and get a feel for the city's ambiance, even just 3 hours could suffice. However, for a more immersive experience, especially if you're interested in museums, historical sites, and exploring diverse neighborhoods, extending your stay to 5 days and doing multiple tours might be more fulfilling. Berlin offers a rich history, culture, and attractions, so the length of your stay ultimately depends on your interests and how deeply you wish to delve into what the city has to offer. However long you decide to stay, I'm here to help you make the most of your days!

How large can my group be?

Typically, for private experiences with families or friends, groups of 1 to 10 people work well. However, I can accommodate larger groups such as students or colleagues, up to 35 individuals. If your group exceeds this size, I recommend hiring a second guide, which I can easily arrange for you. This ensures everyone has a fantastic and personalized experience during the tour.

Are private tours of Berlin kid friendly?

Absolutely! A private tour of Berlin can be incredibly kid-friendly. I can tailor the tour to accommodate the interests and attention spans of children, ensuring an engaging and educational experience for them.
