Hi Marg. We're very sorry about what happened with your tour; the communication line with our guide that resulted in his not having the details / confirmation and guestlist of the day's tour. Of course this does not solve your problem and we take full...More
Whilst visiting Berlin I wanted a free walking tour for my friends and I. I chose the 'Free Tours by foot' all day tour as it'd take in most of what we wanted to see all in one day, it does exactly what it says...More

3 hours may seem like a long time. But I would say the waking would be accessible to most people with plenty of stops.
It goes quick with so much to take in.
20 minute break in the middle allows the mind a rest to...More
I did this alternative tour a couple of years ago with another guide, loved it, and loved the tour today with JR even more. Very knowledgeable, friendly, with a great point of view. He did a great job interacting with the group, and gave me...More
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
