About Explore Berlin Tours
Explore Berlin is tourism at its best. Jessica Cartwright is one of the most sought after guides in the city - not only because of her in depth knowledge of past and present Berlin but also for the phenomenal way in which she conveys its history with spirit, suspense and compassion. To fully appreciate the Berlin of today, Jessica navigates you through the many layers of its diverse past. From its swampy origins to the rise of the Prussian army, through Hitler’s megalomaniacal vision for a new world capital to the communist totalitarian regime that led to division and the construction of the Berlin wall. Come and experience Berlin through her stories of the city and its people as they stood at the gates of history with her “multimedia” props and passionate recounting of some of history’s most pivotal moments.

This was my first virtual tour, but I felt like I was right there at the Berlin Wall Memorial. The technology functioned perfectly and with Jessica's guidance it was almost like walking the streets along the former Berlin Wall. I loved diving into the stories of ordinary Berliners and hearing hidden details which we learned along the way, the hour flew by and I almost forgot I was sitting at home with my laptop. Not only interesting stories, but the personal anecdotes and knowledge which Jessica shared in a warm, engaging and insightful way really brought this period to life. Amazing quarantine relief, I'd recommend Jessica and her tours to anyone. Thanks so much!

What a wonderful tour with Jessica! It felt I was right there with Jessica, walking by the sights along the Berlin wall, although I was actually sitting in front of my computer in cold Minnesota. Jessica knows exactly how to bring a virtual tour to live so you feel part of it. The one hour tour went by in a jiffy and was filled with fantastic insights and off the beaten paths stops. Her knowledge and fun way to explain sights and telling stories made this extra special. I could have listened to her all day. Fantastic tour, I highly recommend Jessica for your next virtual or in person tour through Berlin. She simply rocks!

Although I was sitting in front of my computer during the whole tour it really didn't feel like a virtual experience at all. Thanks to all the vivid explanations, touching stories and perfect use of modern technology I had the feeling to be right next to all the sights and memorials our guide Jessica showed us during our one hour walk along the Berlin Wall. A real treat during the Corona lockdown! I can highly recommend such a tour to anyone who is looking for an escape from their everyday routine or who does not have the opportunity to visit the city of Berlin in person. Thanks Jessica for that touching and very informative glimpse into our turbulent past.

Great experience to be part of the one hour Berlin wall virtual Tour with Jessica! I really felt like diving in history as she brought to life what happened to the Berlin people more than 40 years ago: the scenery in the Subway, the escaping tunnels.. etc. Highly recommended Tour, especially during times like this with travel bans!
