The program of tours includes something for everyone – for example, the “Berlin Highlights Tour,” which gives you a good general overview of the city’s points of interest and its history, the “German Reunification Tour,” with information about the former East Germany and the fall of the Berlin Wall, or even walks through Berlin’s more alternative neighborhoods, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.
