I have been living in Berlin for about 6 years now. I am an entrepreneur and project manager by trade. On the side, I have been a tour guide in Berlin for about 3 years, specializing in the WWII history. It would be my pleasure to introduce Berlin to you with its histories, highlights and culture.

Will highly recommend going on tour with Sylvia. She was so friendly and kind and had planned the tour so it fit us so well. Not only did she know the historical facts of the different sites, she also included some of her interpretations and experiences, which only made the experience more personal. The 90 minutes went by too fast, and we will definitely contact Sylvia the next time we visit Berlin!

My friend and I were looking for a short tour with a lot of history (WWll etc) and that was what we found with Sylvia, who customized the tour just for us. She was an amazing guide who gave a great inside in Berlin’s history and was super helpful afterwards by recommending the best museum to follow the tour. She is such a kind and friendly person who knows her history and talks passionately about it. Could absolutely recommend this tour and specially this guide :-)

Sylvia really knows her subject and brought a personal touch to the sights we saw which helped me and my kids think more deeply about the history of this wonderful city. She was also really kind in adapting to the fact that my kids are younger than she typically hosts - so we attended only half the tour, meeting the group along the way, and she was happy to stay in touch afterwards and help us plan the rest of our sightseeing trip, giving us advice on transport and what else to see. Without her, we would have missed out on the spectacular Spy Museum! Thanks, Sylvia!

Sylvia is a great guide. We got to know a lot from the city in a ver my short amount of time. It was certainly worthy and my family really enjoyed the experience. Thanks

Sylvia was great. I didn't understand how great this guided tour was until I tried one of the free ones. Sylvia engages more with the sights and let us know the short and relevant information rather than go into too much detail that often leaves you without impression. She tells a story. I actually remember every word of it because she only told us what we needed to hear to understand what history has taught us. Please do remember though to book one of the times where other people has booked as she will be charged per occasion, which sometimes leaves her with nothing when there are only one or two people in the tour.

Sylvia was awesome! I ended up booking the tour on the last full day I was in Berlin and really enjoyed it. You get exposure to a lot of different landmarks in the area, which you can then choose to go back to/stay longer if you’d like. Good memorizable bitesized chunks of knowledge that was neither too brief nor too heavy. There were some nearby spots that I went to by myself prior to the tour that were not part of the tour, so I’d recommend asking Sylvia after the tour which nearby spots the tour did not cover.
