We did the alternative Berlin tour and we couldn't be happier. We saw the real life of the city, while getting to know a bit of its history. Rich was really a fun guide and sensible to the complexity of berlin's recent history. He always presented us the to sides of the story, exactly as a guide should do. It... More

Jason our tour guide did a wicked job showing us around and giving a history of the area. Plenty of info you will not hear and would highly recommend it as one of the first things to do when you get to Berlin. Friedrichstein is at the very beginning and it was exactly what I wanted to see. The graffiti... More

We did the tour with Rich and it was really good! He was so excited about everything he told, we got as excited too. Took us to some really good places and had a lot to talk about. Thank you for the tip to go to stattbad!! We had a very good night there! Indi & Tony from Holland

Awesome tour today. Sunday was the perfect day as there are not a lot of crowds. Imogen was a spectacular guide and her personal family history only adds to the tour. Great tour for English speakers and anyone looking for a great tour on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Marijuana gave us a great insight into the underground and alternative culture present in Berlin. She was able to share her stories of living in squats as a teenager and her life as a trapeze artist!

So I wound up doing 3 tours with Alternative Berlin. The first one was the day walking tour. I slept in and missed the normal tour I had planned on doing so caught the alternative one an hour later. I literally knew nothing about Kreuzberg coming into the tour but immediately fell in love with it. The tour guide, Stefan,... More

Did the Real Berlin Experience alternative tour today. Led by IMOGEN it was a wonderful 4 1/2 hour walk with a couple of short U-Bahn rides. Saw a lot of Street Art and IMOGEN was able to give the context for why this Art constitutes such an important part of Berlin's cultural/political development and resistance to the homogenizing pressures of...

We had a tour bright and early at 11am on a Friday. Our guide was Rich who was beyond friendly and genuinely excited to share what he knows of Berlin with us. Rich did a great job of identifying the work of a couple of different street artists and graffitti crews explaining the differences between particular mediums and how the... More

I took the tour with a friend and we both were delighted with Mary Jane, the guide. She is awesome and knows all about the alternative Berlin. I wish it could have more then 3 hours! Seriously recommend the alternative tour with her.
