From the moment I contacted the company, I knew that I had found somethign different from the average tour guide. Arja was immediately responsive and proposed... More

Carolina was informative and accommodating. My husband uses a walker, so we combined walking with a private taxi in a fantastic 6-hour tour of Berlin on our first day. Carolina could not have been better. With her seven years of study of history, she had insights of old Germany, politics, the Nazis, divided Berlin and today's era that gave us... More

Caroline took 2 of us to all the historic sites and shared all of her knowledge on the history of it all. We also saw little "tucked away" places that were amazing and that we would not have seen on another tour. We had a 5 hour walking tour of Berlin, we took pubic transportation when needed, which was fun.... More

We took a 5 hour private car tour with Greta Civis. She created a fascinating and comprehensive itinerary to introduce us to Berlin and was impressively well-informed about all aspects of the city. Her English was excellent and her approach was highly enthusiastic, flexible, relaxed and very friendly. We were given all the time we needed to stop and visit... More

She met us the afternoon we arrived and was able to drum up the interest even more about what we were about to see in Berlin.mas my son said, she doesn't give you the notebook... More

She was very informative and took us around Berlin and in only two hours she showed us all the main sites and gave us... More

We had already visited Berlin a number of times before, but now we got a whole new angle, there's so much to learn about each and every street. As a history buff, it's amazing when you now and then run into a guide that really knows history (not just the superficial Lonely Planet version) and also knows current events so... More

Arja was a fantastic guide: the depth of her knowledge is unbelievable, and that means something coming from me since my job is to train guides and develop excursions in destinations. A truly insightful 4 hours and I will book her again next time I am in Berlin.

My mom, daughter and I spent three days in March 2015 with Caroline. (Ages 15, 48, 79) We did an overview of the city by foot, a day looking at street art etc by car and a third at the concentration camp outside of town. Everything was perfect. She arranged everything even bought train tickets ahead of time. She researched... More

We arrived in Berlin on the day of the World Cup Finals last July 2014! Caroline was kind enough to check in with us before our scheduled meeting the next day. She introduced us to Berlin in a way we could have never seen it on our own. We watched the German team in that historic final and celebrated with... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
