The tour was amazing! We were lucky to have a private tour with her. I was not expecting a very nice discussion about the memorial and the Soviet Union in general. Olga is super friendly and very well prepared for the tour - with figures and extra information about the memorial. I was surprised. The place is so beautiful but she also brought the idea of the importance to think about the past and see with critical eyes the situation after the 2nd world / patriotic war. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun! I really recommend it :)

Nima was an excellent guide. As two Americans who wanted a local to really show us what Berliners eat and what makes up the gastronomic fanfare of the city, we were so pleased by Nima’s tour. We tried curry wurst, söner kebab, falafel, baklava, tea, cheese, tarts, beer, and wine. I was so full by the end of the tour. Nima went the extra step to make sure we wrapped up the remaining food to take back to our hotel. I was so glad we did, because we finished it that evening. The route was really cool too, as we probably would not have seen the Kreuzberg neighborhood otherwise. Nima also took us on the metro, which was cool to experience in Berlin. Nima weaved in contemporary history, immigration, Nazi/ColdWar history, and food history into the tour so well. I felt like I really saw part of Berlin that Berliners enjoy.

I attended the Berlin history tour. It was one best your I have attended. This tour covered all the places I had in my list to visit. She was well informed about all the building and explained every place in historical context and event which ended at that place. She was also explaining social context related to Berlin society and people. I had very good time and learned a lot. It was also interested as I have interest in history and society.

This was such a great tour! Rafael was super knowledgeable and friendly, and I ended up meeting a lot of great people. He won’t show you the most cliché or common things which I really appreciated. He was also flexible and accommodated for my specific interest during the tour. He clearly cares about the community which made his description of Berlin‘s queer scene extra touching. Would absolutely take this again next time I’m in Berlin.

The essentials of Berlin free walking tour

Berlin is an amazing city with a lot to offer. But what if you have limited time and want to make the most of it? That's why we offer Alternative Tours of Berlin on GuruWalk, a quick and easy way to get the best of this vibrant city in just a few hours.
We focus on all the hidden gems that tourists don't know about. From graffiti spots, street art, bars, clubs and more, our guides will show you Berlin like never before.
Haus Schwarzenberg, to start somewhere concrete, is a former bank building in Berlin that was bought by Heimathafen Neukölln in 2008. It has been converted into a centre for art and culture.
Haus Schwarzenberg now houses several galleries, studios, workshops and a café. This centre is important because it gives people the opportunity to explore their artistic side. With the variety of media available and the support of experts, people can experiment with their imagination without fear of failure.
In the Kreuzberg district is the Baumhaus a der Mauer, a former apartment building that has been converted into a tourist destination. There are around 50 flats in total and each has its own unique style. They offer visitors the opportunity to experience a flat, including the furnishings and design, as well as taking part in some hands-on activities.
The Oberbaumbrücke Bridge is the longest bridge in Berlin. It was built at the end of the 19th century to connect East and West Berlin.
The Oberbaumbrücke can be considered one of the most important landmarks of the Berlin skyline. The bridge has also been an important symbol for various events, such as protests against the East German government or to commemorate national holidays. Crossing it, we pass from Kreuzberg to Friedrichshain. Here we can start a very unique walk through Berlin's old Jewish quarter.
You will pass some of the traditional family restaurants, synagogues and shops of Rykestraße, through the Jewish cemetery of Weissensee and on to Kreuzberg.
The walk begins with a short climb up Kottbuser Tor. From here we cross a leafy park and pass Rykestraße, where we find the synagogue and memorial site on Kreuzbergstraße which were destroyed in 1938. From there we head towards the Weissensee cemetery, where there are graves dating back centuries, as well as an impressive memorial from 1993 by Peter Eisenman.
As you can see, alternative Berlin has a lot to offer and is a way to be a Berliner instead of a tourist with little time to spare.
