Why not discover the rich and turbulent history of 20th century Berlin from the comfort of your own home? Travel back in time and under the grand arches of the Brandenburg Gate to explore some of the city’s most historical sites, including Berlin’s famous central park, the Tiergarten and post-War Soviet memorial. Your expert guide will lead you along avenues that have witnessed world historical moments including Ronald Reagan’s 1987 speech, “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this Wall!” Packing over a hundred years of history into one hour, don’t forget to grab a glimpse of the glistening glass dome atop the Reichstag and watch history come to life during this incredible and interactive virtual experience.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Berlin’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Berlin. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Berlin of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Berlin's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

Our private tours run between 8:00AM and 7:00PM Berlin time. Please send us a message if you would like to request a specific date and time.

    I had a wonderful experience this morning (afternoon in Berlin) virtually walking from the new government buildings, around the Reichstag, through the Tiergarten and back to the Brandenburg Gate. The immersive sensation lingers for long after you've switched off Zoom, and you truly feel as if you were just there. Guides are knowledgable, experienced and professional, as you would expect from an in-person guide, since they are the same folks. Thank you for providing this means to support local guiding and businesses. I think the virtual travel niche/industry is really on the grow, with tremendous potential.

    This is a live walking tour that engages participants in the buildings and history of modern Germany.  Taylor was excellent in discussing the history and architecture of the buildings and places we visited.  I enjoyed his seamless presentation of historic pictures as he walked which gave a sense of how things changed over time.  Highly Recommended.
