Berlin Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 866 )
Berlin, capital of Germany and urban hub since the 13th century, has—after two world wars and a cold one—emerged as a hip, youthful, and energetic metropolis.
Berlin is a city with a rich and tumultuous history. Yet it is the past century that many find the most gripping—from the chaos of World War I to the frenetic creativity of the Weimar Republic to the devastation from World War II and, finally, to the Cold War, which literally split the city in two. But after so many decades of destruction and despair, Berlin has been rebuilt and has evolved into a vibrant and exciting city in Europe, known for its cutting-edge contemporary art, architecture, and nightlife. Explore the city's transformation with Context's Berlin private tours and Berlin small group tours.

Context's network of scholars and experts runs the gamut of specialization, from architects to art historians to the refugees who lead our Cooking Across Borders Refugee Cooking Class. Some of the most popular Berlin private tours and Berlin small group tours that our expert guides lead include our Cold War Tour, which travels back in time as we examine the historic fission that took place in the city, the cultural and political background for Berlin's split, and how it impacted its residents throughout the Cold War. We also recommend our Berlin City Tour with one of our Berlin private guides, which digs through the many layers of history while visiting important sites like the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, and Holocaust Memorial, providing a solid overview of the city. Or, our Berlin Architecture Tour, which examines Berlin's built environment constructed in the 20th century, from Bauhaus to Futurism. Other popular tours include our Day Trip to Dresden, a striking example of the German mentality and how the country was rebuilt after World War II, our Berlin for Kids Family Program, led by guides trained in Visual Thinking Strategies, and our Kreuzberg Tour, which tackles the immigrant history of Berlin's coolest neighborhood.

Robert's passion for the Wall Tour was perfect and made the tour so much more. This was my first tour with Context Travel. Very positive and looking forward to future tours. Honestly I can't think of any errors of improvement.
Chris was hugely knowledgeable and well-organised, but came across with a personable and personal view on the historical period and its aftermath.
Interesting tour we took on day of celebrating the fall of the Wall. Be better preparered for closures of streets. Guide John was informative and enthusiastic; however I would have liked going to the Nikolai viertel as well. Because of the cold weather it would have been better to walk more instead of standing still and listen. Overall I am happy to reccomend him!
