“Would do it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We live in Berlin and decided to take the tour everyone else was raving about. Our guide was Bart (as in Bart Simpson) and did an awesome job. He was friendly, funny, and really seemed to enjoy his job! I would highly recommend this tour, I saw things I never even noticed while living here. I would seriously do it again just to see another route, because they change it up every once in a while, just as graffiti changes :)

Thanks for your kind words. It´s always extra pleasing to hear that Berliners or people living in Berlin enjoy our tours. You can definitely count it being a bit different the next time as the art in the streets changes all the time and we are always looking at new and interesting things to add.
All the best

“A Fun night out with the anti pub crawl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Thank you for the best night out i had in berlin!
Our pub crawl guide knew all this stuff about the clubs and bars and I had great conversations with her. She was real fun :))
The bar I liked best on the tour was the CCCP (I am not good in remembering names, but I am quite sure this was it!) The decorations really kicked ass and the music was not too bad. ^^
Other clubs and bars were a horror-punk-goth club and a bar called mr pong, where you can play ping pong with a beer in your hand.
You should definitely try this anti pub crawl tour! Maybe you get to know my favorite guide danni and the best bar here - CCCP - then ;)

Thanks for this awesome review of our anti pub-crawl. We have some really great guides running this for us which really helps with the experience. Our bars are picked especially for their uniqueness and originality and the CCCP is definitely one of the most surprising ones.
Hope you can visit us again sometime soon.
cheers

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Me and my friends took the tour last weekend, our guide was Katie. It was great. I don't particularly like standard tourist destinations like museums etc. and it was perfect alternative. This tour took us to the places where we definitely wouldn't go by ourselves. We learned many things about street art, even though none of us knew anything about it before. Other than that it was a great history lesson given based on many interesting stories and examples rather than dates. In the evening we used a few of the pub reccomendations ;)

Thankyou for this lovely review. Kati is a local Berlin girl , filmmaker, stand up comedian, tour guide and a wonderful source of information for our guests. As a seasoned traveller she gets along very well with people and her tours are always informative and entertaining. We are very happy to hear you got so much out of her tours.
Best wishes

“the Tour You WANT to take”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We took the Real Berlin Tour on Friday with Sabastian. Sebastian speaks perfect English so don't worry about any language barrier. He was very informative and we got to see parts of Berlin that we never would have seen otherwise. We didn't just see the best parts of Berlin but also the real culture behind it. The tour included Prenzlauerberg, an intro to the Street art of Berlin, the 2nd oldest Currywurst stand in Berlin, Kreuzberg and even a cool Jamaican bar, the Yaam! This tour totally made the day even thought the temperature was well below freezing.

On Saturday we went on the Anti 666 PubCrawl. Dani was our guide and she showed us 5 totally awesome bars. Again as a normal tourist we would have never found these places. Dani not only brought us to these bars but also gave us background information on each bar before we arrived. She was very informative and really knew what she was talking about. The bars we saw were the Yesterday Bar, Dr. Pong, the Last Cathedral, Dazzle, and Brunnen70. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a night in Berlin.

Take these two tours you will not regret it. If I ever get back to Berlin I will be checking out the other tours by Alternative Berlin.

“Loved it so much, we did two!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

My partner and I love street Art but didn't want to waste time trying to find them all so we took the Real Berlin tour where we were given a great introduction to the history and evolution of street art in the city by our fantastic and enthusiastic tour guide, Sebastien. We loved it so much that we opted to take the Anti-pub crawl, our helpful guides Hera, Dani and Jan, took us to four underground pubs/ clubs... our favourite being a techno club under a furniture store. It was surprisingly quite a big group to begin with and had a few rowdy guys... but luckily, we split into 3 groups half way. But other than them, everyone else was super nice. Definitely recommend it!

Thankyou for joining 2 of our tours. We think we quite a good variety of options for our guests. Our Real Berlin tour is something we are very proud of as we think it really gives visitors a feel for how the city works and the places locals visit. Our anti pub-crawl is designed to show people the underground side of Berlin´s nightlife away from the touristy spots. We always try to get nice guests on this one and if need be we will ask rowdy guests to behave which they will generally comply with. It´s all about visiting local Berlin places so good behavior is a must. We are very happy to hear all our guides were such good hosts. Thanks for this great review.
Best wishes
