Private guides and guided tours in Germany
Private guides in Germany
Hello there! Currently I work as private guide in Berlin, but at first I used to be an officer at the Metropolitan Police. Before retiring from there, I went through a special tour management course so currently I am a licensed guide and registered with the Global Guide association. You should take into consideration that all the guided tours in Berlin that are organize are walking tours.
I am originally from Vancouver Canada and moved to Munich in the summer of 2009. After working as the operations manager (and tour guide) for the largest tour operator in Munich, I decided to branch out on my own.

COMMENTS ABOUT Germany:
The Federal Republic of Germany is a west-central European country with coastlines on both the Baltic and North Seas, and borders that are shared with Poland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. In general the climate of Germany is cold in winter and warm in summer.
Autumn, however, is the perfect time of year to holiday in Munich and join in the world’s largest folk festival, Oktoberfest, when visitors enjoy drinking large amounts of authentic German beer and munching on traditional foods like Knodel and Schweinbraten.
Germany also has many historical and cultural attractions, including quite a few spectacular “fairy tale” castles, such as Neuschwanstein near Fussen, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country and said to have been the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle. Other notable historical landmarks include the Heidelberg Castle and the city’s old town district, the Holstentor round tower gates of Lubeck, the Church of Our Lady in Dresden, and the magnificent Cologne Cathedral. The Cologne Cathedral was built in 1248 and dedicated to Saint Peter and Saint Mary; it has been an important visitor destination in Germany for centuries.
This country has no shortage of natural, scenic beauty either. One of the most enjoyable activities for visitors to Germany is a pleasant cruise down the Rhine River between Koblenz and Bingen, an area known as the Romantic Rhine and filled with lovely sights that include gorgeous rolling green hills topped with vineyards and fairy tale castles like the Burg Eltz.
There are several notable nature reserves and parks in Germany that provide a plethora of picturesque scenery for nature lovers. The Rugen Cliffs in Jasmund National Park are an example of the majesty of nature’s dynamic abilities, with white chalk cliffs that soar above the waters of the Baltic Sea next to ancient untouched forests.
One of the most famous landmarks in all of Europe is also located in Germany: the Brandenburg Gate. It was built in the 1700s as an entrance to Berlin, closed off during the separation of East and West Berlin and when the wall was named the Iron Curtain, and is now the symbol of reunification for Berlin and Germany.
