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.

We took the Berlin Main tour, lead by the wonderful Maria. Although the day started with a little drizzle, it quickly cleared up. Maria is smart, funny, and knows the city inside out, we learned for more than any guide book could give you. Indeed we enjoyed it so much we walked
