About the Guru

Hello, I am a lover of music, a former student of literature, and a seven year resident of the amazing city that is Berlin. I'm discovering more and more about my adoptive home town and I love to share what I have learnt. I know the history and the people and I like to have a fun experience when seeing the city with others.

We took the music tour of Berlin with Ryan O'Reilly and it was excellent. Ryan was very friendly and took us to some interesting places and gave us some great info on David Bowie's time in Berlin. Thoroughly recommend taking the music tour with Ryan.
