In contrast to bus trips, with an individual city tour you have the opportunity to stop almost everywhere - be it for a photo shoot, be it for a snack or break, be it for a coffee. Or for a longer tour to take a closer look at an object or to have it explained (e.g. Topography of Terror, Checkpoint Charly, Hackesche Höfe, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Palace/Humboldt Forum). According to your interests and wishes! And unlike a walking tour, you don't just see a tiny part of our city. Here you can still immerse yourself in Berlin districts (Kieze) such as Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain. On this tour we have relaxed time even for extra destinations such as Charlottenburg Palace, Tempelhof Airport, Wall Memorial or the Soviet War Memorial in Treptow Harbour. And enjoy the luxury of being picked up personally from your accommodation in the S-Bahn ring. And all in a real Berlin luxury SUV!

The Berlin Wall, Kruschev & Kennedy, the Airlift, spies, escapes and “the end of history” – it’s fair to say that Berlin defined the Cold War. This tour is a deep dive into a divided city – a time when it felt like World War Three was just around the corner, when one side of the city lived under Soviet-style communism, and the other was occupied by not one, not two, but three Western powers!
In air-conditioned comfort, in your luxury German car, you'll be taken from West to East across the German capital, criss-crossing where the Berlin Wall once stood, to get the closest possible look at what life was like back when Berlin was the centre of the Cold War. From famous sights like the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie, to lesser-known memorials and stories that you would never find on your own, this tour is far and away the best way to get to know Cold War Berlin.
