Our knowledgeable team and network of reliable partners in Berlin and beyond makes us the perfect choice for an extraordinary visit.

Mission & Vision

“The most dangerous worldviews are the worldviews of those who have never viewed the world.” – Alexander Von Humboldt

Our mission is to go beyond sightseeing – to deliver tailored private experiences that bring to life the most important lessons from history. Each guide brings their insider perspective on Berlin’s complex past, allowing you to understand the unique character and influence of our shape-shifting capital.

Great cities are full of diverse perspectives and surprising discoveries, which is why telling Berlin’s stories is a source of never-ending inspiration for us. We go beyond the facts and figures to bring history to life, stimulate one-to-one discussion and deepen your understanding of the world.

Our values are our guide in every aspect of our work. We are welcoming, open-minded, curious, creative and aware of people and the planet. In line with this, we work with only the best guides and suppliers. Each team member is paid fairly and treated as part of our family; each guest is hosted like an old friend.

Have we sparked your interest? Then join us! We welcome anyone who visits Berlin with an open mind and a curious spirit.

Our Team

“People often say that I’m curious about too many things at once… But can you really forbid [one] from harbouring a desire to know and embrace everything?” – Alexander Von Humboldt

Both in the office and on the ground, we work with passionate people who enjoy sharing their knowledge and insights in order to inspire and inform their guests.

Tour Guides

The résumés of Berliners are as colourful as the metropolis: our guides are not only experts at planning and leading tours, they are also historians, actors, chefs, authors, architects, anthropologists and activists. As such, they can offer a wide variety of perspectives through which to understand the city and surrounding areas.

Organisational Team

Our back office team are masters of logistics, providing the administrative and organisational know-how to ensure that your tour runs without a hitch, whatever your requirements. We are always happy to talk to new or existing customers to answer your queries or concerns. Contact us here.
