Begin your tour of Berlin's Mitte District on the historic Bornholmer Straße, where the first Berliners from East and West joined arms joyfully on the day the Berlin Wall fell. Discover the impressive New Synagogue and the Old Post Headquarters. See Berlin as a city of contrasts – from the Hauptbahnhof to the Charité. Visit the Government Quarter and the Reichstag, symbol of a united Berlin. Through the much-loved Tiergarten, Berlin's Central Park, you will ride onwards to the most famous landmark in the city: the Brandenburg Gate. Then, passing many historic monuments and interesting places, you will journey to Alexanderplatz, with the Red Town Hall, the TV Tower, the beautiful Neptune Fountain and the unique East German World Clock. Finally, you will cycle through hip Prenzlauerberg back to your starting point.
We took a 4 hour bike tour of Berlin with Markus, starting and finishing at Bornheimerstrasse. Our guide was pleasant, interactive and informative, filling us in on historic, geographical and architectural detail and showing a great variety of sights during our tour. This was a great orientation activity on day one of our visit.
Discover Berlin on this easy-going walking tour. You will start at the World Clock on Alexanderplatz, the place where all Berliners traditionally meet up. From here, there is an excellent view of some of the best-loved sights in the city, from the Red Town Hall to Berlin's towering Fernsehturm (TV Tower). Visit the exciting and many-faceted Nikolaiviertel and walk across the Schlossplatz to Berlin Cathedral. Wander down the famous Unter den Linden and see the intimately beautiful garden of the Prinzessinnenpalais, the princesses' palace, on Bebelplatz. Enjoy a coffee break on the Gendarmenmarkt and see places steeped in history, such as the Holocaust Memorial and the Brandenburg Gate.

Having been to Berlin before myself and with the wife being a massive VW enthusiast, I thought this could be the perfect tour to show the city to the family. My expectations were completely blown out of the water. The T1, Splitty, Bulli is a thing of absolute beauty which has been lovingly and sympathetically restored, maintained and as it should be, used. We were wowed by the van. The City is a veritable treasure trove of culture, history, architecture and as probably the 20th Century's most iconic place on earth instantly you feel connected to this and at home. However, the real star of the show was Rajko. His knowledge, enthusiasm and love of Berlin shone though throughout. We have all been on standard bus tours before, pre-recorded and around the main streets for the bus. This was a personal journey around this most beautiful, interesting city - including back streets and places of curiosity - from a Berlin local who didnt just give the headlines from history, but shared his own
The guy was great. Very knowledgeable and patient with the other tourists with kids. It was toooo hot in the van. We were all sweating due to the heat not having adjustments. We rolled the windows down when we could though
It was great and highly recommended - even for those who know the city. Gladly again :-) Great car and great guide!
ABSOLUTE worth the price! The story behind Berlin while driving with this van is amazing!
We absolutely loved it and learned a lot about Berlin and it’s history!
