Absolutely the best possible tour of Berlin! Our guide, Hilke, left us excited and overwhelmed with her knowledge and love for the city. She is highly professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, with an amazing sense of humor that is so charmingly true German! We loved every moment of this tour and will never forget it!
Thank you, Hilke!

Hilke led the best tour of Berlin highlights - exceeding our expectations. She was very flexible to our needs. Her many years in Berlin provided an extra personal layer to the history of the area! And we saw bunnies and a fox - certainly not what we expected in a busy, vibrant city center!

Hilke's local and historical knowledge is vast.
She is pleasant, fluent in multiple languages, diplomatic, and, most important, knows more about her subject areas than we had time to discuss. We were a group of 5 with non-stop questions about German history, culture, food, art, our week's itinerary, and more; and Hilke addressed them all, explaining past events and how historians view them today. I wish we had more time to spend with Hilke. She's a gem!

I booked Mrs Gerdes for some of my VIP clients and they were super happy with her services.
My clients spent a wonderful day with her ,a professional, dynamic and well informed tourist guide.
Mrs Gerdes is passionate about the city where she lives as well as about her job. She not only knows the history of Berlin so well, but she gives information that she has picked up that would not be part of what one learns on regular tours. I would highly recommend any tourist to spend time in Berlin with her.

She was FANTASTIC! She did a lot of pre-work to make sure I received the perfect tour based on my specific requests. Extremely knowledgeable and flexible on the fly. I really enjoyed spending the day with her and learned so much about Berlin!
Holly Linton, United States, Sept. 2022

Wow! Hilke was amazing! Our teenagers were dreading their third tour in 10 days. Hilke was able to adapt our tour to start in the neighborhood where they could see street art and then took us to see the sites that were interesting to them. She gave high level overviews but answered details when we asked. She has an incredible energy that got our kids interested. I wish we could bring her to every city! This is our 4th private tour and by far the best.
Tracie Kiachian, United States, Aug. 2022

Hilke was simply fantastic. Detailed knowledge of all of Berlin both past and current. Went out of her way to meet all of our needs. Would highly recommend. She was such a pleasure to have as our guide. Hope to see her again.

"Germania" – die Stadt im Nationalsozialismus

"Germania" – so sollte Berlin als Hauptstadt des nationalssozialistischen Imperiums einmal heißen. Auch wenn von den megalomanischen Plänen nicht viel übrig geblieben ist, einige Spuren lassen sich doch entdecken. Wichtige Orte, wie die Neue Reichskanzlei,
der Führerbunker, d
as Reichssicherheitshauptamt und der Gestapo-Sitz, sind heute dokumentiert, andere wie das Olympiastadion und OKH/OKW im Bendlerblock sichtbar geblieben. Zu dieser Tour gehören ebenso die heutigen Gedenkstätten, die an die zahlreichen Opfer des NS-Zeit erinnern, wie Plötzensee und das in Oranienburg liegende KZ Sachsenhausen.
