Bus and Minivan Tour: Berlin Full Day Tour
This is the best way of getting to know Berlin and falling in love with it! Our tour guides will show you around the city and point out all the “must-see” sights and the “must-know” things. There will be plenty of time to visit one of the famous museums on Museum Island, see the glass dome of the Reichstag building from inside or cover offside places that might be of interest to you. During the lunch break you will get a taste of the local cuisine and a chance to talk with your guide about general matters. And so you might end up saying, just as John F. Kennedy did: “Ich bin ein Berliner!”

For up to 7 travelers the tour is in minivan with driver and guide. For larger groups modern coaches are used. If you arrive to Berlin in your own coach book the local guide only.
The tour starts at your hotel, at the airport or any other location that is convenient for you – and takes you virtually through all the aspects of the city´s history and its present life. It goes without saying that you will see all the highlights in the city center like the Government Quarter with the Chancellery, remains of the Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Holocaust Memorial, the site of Hitler´s bunker, the Victory Column, Kurfüstendamm, Zoo Station and the department store KadeWe, Unter den Linden with its Prussian grandeur, the TV Tower, the Red Town Hall etc.
There will be several photo stops at places and sights like at the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag (if you wish so, with a visit to the Glass Dome – don´t forget to register in advance!), Potsdamer Platz with Sony Center, the Gendarmenmarkt with its beautiful 18th century architecture or Hackescher Markt where a network of interconnecting courtyards invites you to a shopping stroll. Or you might want to have a walk at former Tempelhof airport as the site of the airbridge has nowadays become a recreational park. You can also visit the official Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse. This was the place where many spectacular flight attempts (both successful and unsuccessful ones) were made in the 1960-s and a church was detonated in the so-called death strip in 1985. Photo stops at Charlottenburg Castle or at the Olympic Stadium are possible, too.
As all the information might make you hungry, there will be a lunch break at a place of your choice – either at a currywurst stand, where you can taste this popular local dish (with and without bowel), or at a restaurant with German or local cuisine. This will give you a chance to talk with your guide about any Berlin-related topics that might interest you or pop up in your mind. If you hear something that makes you curious – no problem! There is still enough time left to go to any special places you wish to see together with your guide. After all, life in Berlin is very diverse. There are so many different districts and quarters that it´s impossible to see them all in one day – but you can visit some of them and find out what makes each of them unique and what it feels like to live in these different parts of Germany´s capital.
At the end we can drop you off at your hotel or at a place of your choice, depending on what you have planned for the evening. Theatres, cinemas, bars, restaurants, nightclubs – Berlin has it all at its best, and after the full day tour with one of our tour guides you will know where to find it.
This UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site is comprised of five museums on an island on the river Spree in the city center. It is well-known for its Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Etruscan, Babylonian and Egyptian collections. Its most famous highlights are the Pergamon Altar (an ancient Greek temple) in the Pergamon Museum and the bust of Nefertiti, an Egyptian queen who lived more than 3,000 years ago, in the New Museum. A visit to either of these museums with your guide can be part of the tour.
Wall Museum at Checkpoint Charlie
This private collection was started in 1962 and soon found its location at Checkpoint Charlie on the Western side of this famous crossing point. Its purpose was to speak up against the inhumanity of the border regime, and it has now grown into one of Berlin´s major museums. On four floors visitors can see kites, hot air balloons, self-made swimming suits and other devices that were used to escape to the West. While stopping the coach or minivan at Checkpoint Charlie, our tour guide can visit the museum with you and point out the most interesting exhibits to you (entrance fee not included).
The deconstructivist building in the shape of a broken Star of David made its architect Daniel Libeskind famous and was opened to the public in 2001. It features one of Europe´s largest collections focussing on Jewish culture. 2,000 years of Jewish-German history are brought back to life. A visit to the Jewish Museum can also be part of the tour.
