Overview

Explore Berlin is tourism at its best. Jessica Cartwright is one of the most sought after guides in the city - not only because of her in depth knowledge of past and present Berlin but also for the phenomenal way in which she conveys its history with spirit, suspense and compassion. To fully appreciate the Berlin of today, Jessica navigates you through the many layers of its diverse past. From its swampy origins to the rise of the Prussian army, through Hitler’s megalomaniacal vision for a new world capital to the communist totalitarian regime that led to division and the construction of the Berlin wall.Come and experience Berlin through her stories of the city and its people as they stood at the gates of history with her “multimedia” props and passionate recounting of some of history’s most pivotal moments.
