Hello! :) My name is Rafa and I have been a guide for more than 7 years already in different cities (Prague, Barcelona, Berlin). I love my job and I am passionate about history, especially about this crazy city, Berlin. With me you can expect an entertaining and complete tour, but without hiding the horrors of the country's history. Let it not be me who says it -read the comments that have been put to me. ;) I will make the city mean much more than a succession of gray monuments and empty recommendations. You will leave with more than just a tour; You will leave with my list of personal recommendations and a passionate and different tour!

Tour description

Discover the dark and sad history of Berlin from the hand of a guide with years of experience and who will know how to captivate you and bring the city to life!

Learn about the origins of Berlin
- the rise and fall of the Nazis, the subjugation of half the city to Moscow's tutelary communism and its liberation and unification just 30 years ago - through its most important monuments!

The tour is done on foot and covers a route full of history and interesting points in 3.5 hours, with its break included. It 's the perfect way to plant your feet in Berlin and get to know the most important things before looking for more specific topics. It is a MUST for newcomers!
Monuments to be visited:

  • brandenburg gate
  • Reichstag
  • Parisians Square
  • Monument to the Murdered Jews of Europe
  • Hitler's Bunker Gardens
  • Ministry of the Luftwaffe
  • Topography of Terror
  • Berlin Wall
  • checkpoint charlie
  • Gendarmenmarkt

... and several more stops that I prefer to tell you about in person! ;)

You can assess my work at your discretion. I know I do my job well, I trust, so not a penny is paid until the very end of the tour!

In addition to all of the above, I will give attendees for free my recommendations for restaurants, bars, clubs, movies, books, series and tips for the Berlin tour that I have been compiling for a long time!

You will have a great time and learn a lot. Bring good shoes and a coffee, and enjoy!

See you on tour!

Ps I appreciate the comments you give me! They help me a lot!
Ps 2 if someone wants to sign up or information about any other of my tours (III Reich, Wall and Communism, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, Potsdam, etc... ask without fear! :)
