Why I love my job
I really like private tours because I had my share of mass tourism… well, apart from the challenge of conveying German history, I cherish meeting people from all over the world: Australian IT specialists, Bulgarian bankers, pupils from Munich/Bavaria, families from the Philippines, Senegalese environmentalists, China, India, Brazil, México, Canada, Perú, Austrian opera singers and conductors, German surgeons, Swiss foodies, Romanian vintners, US American lawyers and so on…
My Berlin Privateguide team consists of a vast network of knowledgeable, experienced private guides in many languages. We cover many specific tour topics. I’m happy to arrange tours.
