One of the best tours we have experienced! We had the privelege of having Boris as our designated tour guide. He was really good!

Be very careful if booking the Boat Tour complete with currywurst. Although we arrived half an hour before departure and despite having printed off the voucher complete with a QR code we were told this was not a ticket and that we needed to have an email confirming we had booked. What was the voucher for then? Perhaps this was... More

I want to warn people from booking a private tour with Berlin City Tours, as they have a terrible cancellation policy. We booked a tour for 12 in July of 2015, and put a down payment of 25%. We had to cancel the tour when 8 members of our group were no longer able to go on the cruise. We... More

Dear Christine, I am very sorry that you had a bad experience with our company. In our very first email to you we provided the total amount for your tour and our cancellation policy stating that cancelling over a month in advance will result in a fee of 15%. You agreed to those terms & conditions by booking with us... More

I was taking my husband for a surprise trip to Berlin and booked a private tour starting from the airport and then a 3 hour night tour to try and get as much seen as possible on our first evening. Our flight was 30mins early arriving so I had thought I would have to wait to get our driver at... More

This is a fun and easy way to see the city if pressed for time or a good way to scout locations that you may want to com back and take a longer look.

Having only 1 day in Berlin, my first time there, I needed to make the most of it. Fortunately for me, I found this walking tour. Our guide, John O'Leary, "JJ", was stellar. Informative, witty, a perfect balance, made the 4 hours fly by, wishing we had more time.

Beth was a great tour guide. So knowledgeable! We had so much fun seeing the sites of Berlin. The best part is getting information on the sites that we were looking at.

The Free City Tour in Berlin was my favorite thing during my vacation. Our British tour guy was Mark Curtis and he was the most inspiring tour guide. He knew the information front and back and was a former history teacher. I definitely recommend it! The tour is 3.5 hours but it went by so fast!

If you, like me, are a big fan of visiting traditional art galleries but want to better understand today's art and artists, then you will enjoy Berlin's alternative art tour. If you have taken their free tour, which is fantastic, they will give you a discount for this tour (even though you didn't pay for the free tour). This is... More

So, the start was not so good. The original tourguide didn't show up and they rolled Rick out of bed and in 20 minutes we were on our way. After that poor start, it got much better. Rick was excellent. I learned as much as i could about Berlin in a few hours. It is a bit of a "death... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
