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.

Berlin is the city of culture, art and freedom. It offers a wide range of sights to explore.
The Berlin Must-See Free Tours are an immersive walking tour that includes stories and anecdotes from Berlin's history, as well as its turbulent past and current perspective.
Here at GuruWalk you will find different options to enjoy these sightseeing tours.
Tours usually start at the iconic Brandenburg Gate in the heart of Berlin's government district, where you will get an overview of German history from World War II to the multicultural but reunited country of today.
Berlin's Brandenburg Gate is an architectural monument on the historic outskirts of Berlin, built in the 18th century to commemorate Prussia's victories over Denmark and Austria.
Tourists from all over the world flock to the Brandenburg Gate because it is a symbol of peace. It has become one of Berlin's most recognisable landmarks and an important tourist attraction. The gate was designated as part of the German Unity Memorial because it served as one of the three crossing points for East Germans fleeing to West Germany during the Cold War.
We are in the heart of Imperial Berlin, which offers a mix of historical and artistic values. It is an area rich in history and culture.
This place has a lot of history within the walls of this city. One can take a tour to learn more about the events that happened here. There are also many beautiful buildings and monuments that one can visit to learn more about this area.
This place also has a lot of artistic value. The museums in Imperial Berlin are world class and feature many well-known artists as well as hidden gems waiting to be discovered by visitors with an artistic eye.
In addition to the artistic value, Berlin also has great historical value, such as Nazi Berlin.
The Nazi regime was one of the most appalling atrocities in modern history. However, if you are visiting Berlin as a tourist, you should not ignore this part of German history.
To make it more accessible and immersive, some museums have been organising tours that focus on this dark period of German history. These tours will give you an idea of what it must have felt like to live in Berlin during this time and how different things were then from what we know now.
And of course, the Cold War and the Berlin Wall, a must on these tours.
The Berlin Wall was erected by the Soviet Union to divide West Berlin from East Berlin. It was a physical and emotional barrier between families, friends and loved ones. It also surrounded what used to be the most densely populated city in Europe with more than 4 million inhabitants.
The fall of the Berlin Wall, which ended up happening on 9 November 1989, sparked many celebrations around the world as it was seen as a symbol of peace and unity in Germany after more than 30 years of partition.
A new generation has grown up knowing nothing of the life behind the wall, which had been a daily reality for their parents or grandparents, and is interested in hearing stories from those who have lived through it.
