    What to Expect

Then decide whether to focus on Berlin’s World War II or Cold War history. Or simply request a combination of the two. This private tour can be customized to individual preferences.
    Walk through the city with an expert local guide, who will provide a detailed account of the Berlin’s fascinating and oftentimes troubled history. 
    Learn about Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party and what life was like during the Third Reich. See where Hitler’s bunker was located and visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Also, find out how Germany was divided while walking through Checkpoint Charlie, the best-known crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War. Then walk alongside the remains of the Berlin Wall at the Berlin Wall Memorial and East Side Gallery.
    Walk under the famous Brandenburg Gate, one of Berlin’s most important monuments. A symbol of division between Berlin and Germany during the Cold War, it is now a national symbol of peace and unity. Also, see the Reichstag building, the modern-day meeting place of the German Parliament.

    The tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.
