I have been to Berlin a few times in the recent past, and had missed out on some hidden treasures, which were revealed on this tour. Bart, our tour guide, personified the uniqueness of Berlin - a free spirit unencumbered by the trappings of material wealth and true to self. I thoroughly enjoyed his commentary and he made for an...

Our guide Eli was great and we learnt heaps about the city. We went to parts of the city we would normally never have gone to and it was a cool educational trip around the city which was very relevant to us. Our guide was enthusiastic and friendly and truly has a love for his city. Hope to do it... More

A very exciting, engaging and non judgemental analysis of Alternative Berlin. Difficult to do justice to this excellent tour in a few words, but Calum, our guide, described the significance of art, counterculture and gentrification to the development of a city, and the attitudes of Berliners towards these phenomena. A gentle and comprehensive nod towards history in the making. We... More

I loved this tour and my guide Eli. He was enthusiastic and charismatic. The tour was fun, but I really wanted to learn more. I could have taken a full day tour of just that sorta back alley way sub culture experience. I would have loved to learn more of the stories of the people that live there, and about... More

Penny, our guide in this amazing tour of the alternative Berlin, was very friendly and explained well every piece of street art we've seen along the way. It's kind of frustrating that we couldn't see more of those street arts. But the experience was awesome! Thank you for this opportunity. We advise you to do the same while your stay... More

I would have liked to have heard more about alternative music scene of Berlin, Bart did touch base on this and was very knowledgable but this wasn't part of... More

Overall a good tour, easy meeting place and very popular with tourists and locals. I have been on street art tours in Paris and London and rate these much higher due to the amount the tour guides cover. The tour guide was friendly but made it very clear it was a free guide and that she wanted payment. The tour... More

Hi there Thanks for your feedback. Our free alternative tour is designed to show a bit of everything and not just street art & graffiti. We do offer a very thorough Street art tour & workshop and as many people do both our Free tour and Street art tour it´s very important the tours don´t overlap as this is not... More

I cannot recommend exploring Berlin with Dora of AlternativeBerlin more highly. Never have I walked away from a tour feeling that I received so much more than my money's worth. Dora was absolutely lovely, knowledgeable and happily accommodating of my Spanish travel buddies as she took the time to explain things to them in perfect Spanish without adversely affecting the...
