Private Walking Tour: Berlin Highlights and Hidden Sights

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover Berlin’s highlights and main attractions on a private walking tour of Germany's capital. Your private guide will tailor the tour to meet your interests, so you can choose to see top sights such as the Berlin Wall, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag parliament building and Checkpoint Charlie or on lesser-known places and hidden gems that group sightseeing tours often miss. Learn fascinating facts about Berlin's turbulent history during World War II and the Cold War, and listen as your guide explains what life was like for Berlin’s citizens during those times. Choose between a morning and afternoon departure with a duration of three or four hours.
  • Private custom walking tour of Berlin
  • Receive the undivided attention of a personal guide
  • Access hard-to-reach places on a walking tour
  • Receive personalized recommendations for the rest of your vacation
What to Expect
Your private walking tour begins at your Berlin accommodation, where your guide collects you and confirms the day's itinerary. Depending on the itinerary you've agreed upon, you'll visit well-known attractions, such as Checkpoint Charlie, the East Side Gallery, and what remains of the Berlin Wall. Exploring with a private guide means you'll be privy to lesser-known historical info and have ample time to ask questions. See, too, the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) and choose between visiting other notable sights, including Unter den Linden, a boulevard replete with historical architecture, and the Reichstag, an important government building. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
