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.

Wir hatten eine super Zeit, trotz Regen! Die Tour führte u.a. zur ehemaligen Wohnung von David Bowie und Iggy Pop, in einen tollen Plattenladen und zu einer beliebten Bar von Nick Cave und Bowie. Die Tour war sehr informativ & abwechslungsreich - wir können sie allen Musikbegeisterten empfehlen! Thank you, Ryan, we had a really good time!
