Hello, I'm Behzad from Iran, who never cancel the tours, even with just one guest! I am a formerly Ph.D. student in physics, but now, passionate about the history and vibes of Berlin. A city with an amazing history in each corner and a multicultural vibe. Why am I doing this? For more than a year, we have had a large group that goes out every week and visits a new neighborhood of the city, and we haven't visited a place twice! So I decided to share this experience and show Berlin, and all layers of it, to an even larger group of people, that are you! Guruwalkers!

Tour description

We would have been killed if we had participated in this walking tour 35 years ago! But don't worry it's not dangerous anymore. However, you can feel a little of the crises in this divided city. And you will know it's more than a "Tale of two cities"! It's the story of two different worlds in the middle of the cold war. Including stories of many people who suffered from these conflicts.

 In our walking tour, we will visit: 

  • Rabbit Field
  • Liesen Bridge
  • North Side Gallery
  • Berlin Wall memorial
  • Mauer Park
  • Japanese Cherry Trees on the path of Berlin Wall (in the Spring)

We were very happy with the first tour Berlin in a nutshell that we asked Behzad to be our guide again for the Berlin Wall. To no surprise he gave a fantastic tour, giving history with photos, pointing out the details we would have missed. Thank you for enriching our lives with your deep knowledge.

I love history and knew quite a lot of the Berlin Wall. But the amount of information that I received from Bahzad this morning were so much more than the little bit I knew. I love the fact that I now know so much more and can go home and google everything he told me. His knowledge is astounding and the 3 hour walk is well worth it. Marlene Cape Town South Africa
