My husband and I had only a long weekend to see the sites of Berlin and there was so much that we wanted to see. So we did something that we had never done before-hired a private tour guide! My husband found Jeremy, aka Mr. Berlin, on TripAdvisor and read very good reviews. The reviews were correct.
We exchanged several emails with Jeremy ahead of our trip to work out the details. He wanted to know our general and specific interests and timing. We were specifically interested in major 20th century events-WWII, the Holocaust, and Cold War events throughout the city. We decided on a 4hour tour-give or take. Jeremy did an excellent job of introducing us to so many places and events within the city. There is more to see than I had ever imagined. Certain things that we only had time for a glimpse at, my husband and I were able to come back later on our own and spend more time.
Jeremy was great with sharing little known details about out-of-the-(tourist) way spots,too. My husband was a history major, and I research WWII events-we were impressed by Jeremy's knowledge and insight. Plus, he was just a delight to be with. We were able to see and learn in 4 hours what we would never have been able to accomplish in the 3 small days we had.
I would highly recommend and, in fact, already have!
