Hello! I am Rodrigo, originally from Buenos Aires, and living in Berlin for 2 years. Throughout my life I've also lived in Dublin, Ireland, Copenhagen, Denmark, and different parts of Norway (I have a passion for good weather...) I have been a tour guide for 7 years and across 3 cities (Buenos Aires, Copenhagen and Berlin, always in English) and I really enjoy what I do. I studied political science and journalism and I also write. I try and mix all three on my tours so I can tell you a story and make you feel as if you were actually watching it happen. I am enthusiastic, outgoing and love telling stories, anecdotes and sharing my knowledge of the city I live in. And I also like to have fun, so it is not all about history... ask what you want to know! Can do tours in English and Spanish, so get in touch in any of these 2 languages if you have any questions or want a tailor made tour.
Everything you need to see and know in 3 hours! On this tour we will talk and learn about the fascinating history of the German Capital. From the construction of the Brandenburg Gate to the fall of the wall. Imperial Berlin , the 1st World War , the golden 1920s, the tragedy of Nazism , the occupation of Berlin and how its division led to the construction of the wall and the city split in two. "The history of the 20th century was written with the ruins of Berlin". How and why Berlin is today one of the best cities in the world to live (and one of the most fun).
During the tour we will see:

The tour with Rodrigo was one of the most interesting tours I ever had. I was the only one in the tour and he asked me what I already knew and where I was interested in. However I knew already a lot about Berlin he told me many new things. He is really passionated with telling the stories.
The tour was great, Rodrigo knows a lot about history and knows how to make it interesting. I totally recommend this tour!
Rodrigo is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic on what he is doing. We have a great time because we able to appreciate Berlin more. This tour is highly recommended!
