Description

Discover a side to Berlin often left out of the tourist brochures. Your local guide helps you uncover the colorful mix of subcultures that exist here. Wander the backstreets and observe powerful street art as you immerse yourself in a tour that looks at the city from an innovative perspective.

Isolated behind the Iron Curtain, West Berlin became a hotbed for radicals seeking an alternative lifestyle. Take a decidedly different approach to sightseeing as you explore the grungy underbelly of Germany’s capital that those radicals helped create.

Visit the area's coolest neighborhoods as you hear about protests and resistance to urban regeneration projects; see pictorial representation of the campaigners' beliefs through street art and graffiti. When the Wall came down, the underground scene migrated east, and tensions developed between the counterculture and those pushing corporate expansion.

Leave the well-trodden tourist trail and enjoy a fresh insight into Berlin’s gritty, controversial side with help from your fervent guide.

Tour was great but the advertised start time wasn't correct. Expedia said 2pm start but the tour started at 2.30pm. Also the tour required you to buy a 7euro U-ban ticket to get to various places but this wasn't mentioned on Expedia. The tour lasted 3 and a half hours but Expedia advertised it as 4 and a half. It was a great tour, with an excellent guide but Expedia need to get the facts right before advertising.
