Meet your guide in the morning near Zoologischer Garten train station, continuing on an exploration of a series of key locations from the years of the Third Reich and the final Battle of Berlin in 1945. Visit the headquarters of the Luftwaffe, Germany’s feared air force, which coordinated the Battle of Britain, and check out the Ministry of Propaganda, where Joseph Goebbels composed many of his most infamous speeches.
Retrace the route of the final Soviet assault on the city, eventually reaching the Reichstag. Then visit the Soviet War Memorial, where many of the army’s soldiers are buried. You’ll also stop at the home of Hitler’s New Reich Chancellery, the headquarters of the Nazi government, and view the location of Hitler’s former bunker, along with his last days and suicide there in April 1945.
As you walk, you’ll also hear about the resistance movement that opposed Nazi rule, including the group’s leaders, Henning von Tresckow, Hans Oster and Clause von Stauffenberg. This will offer a convenient opportunity for your guide to share insights into daily life for citizens under the Nazis, and talk about the group’s dramatic rise to power. This includes details of Hitler’s Lebensraum policy, a doctrine which contributed to the Holocaust, and created the militaristic philosophy that led to the war.

Excellent tour, or host Alicia was extremely knowledgable! Knew about 1000 different dates, and did a great job painting a picture of what the war looked like from start to finish for all of the world, not just Germany. Get to see majority of Berlin on the tour so a great way to see the city. Highly recommend!

Wow what a great tour! Highly recommended for history fans or for someone who wants just to improve their knowledge around this period of history. Our tour guide, John Jerome, was fantastic, tour was very well organised, lots of interesting facts and insight, John is clearly very well read on the topic and delivered tour with lots of enthusiasm. The tour was ideal for my 15 year old son who is studying this period of history for GCSEs next year. We both loved the tour and big shout out to John for a fantastic 4 hours.

We took the final days of WWI which is somewhat mislabeled. The tour includes much more than just the final days. Our tour guide was Maria. At first I was somewhat skeptical about the size of the group, however she was quite methodical in the way she toured. We walked as a group and then stood in the shade while she spoke very loudly and clearly in a lovely deep voice, so that I don't think any one had a problem hearing or understanding her. I have taken many walking tours in the past. I think they are a great way to learn about history and the city. This tour with Maria was one of the best. She was well informed and organized. I would recommend this tour with her.

A lot of walking and a lot of interesting information. The tour is only as good as the guide and ours was very informative.
It is a shame that not all the buildings were still standing to appreciate the history, however if you have an imagination its all good.

The tour was excellent and our guide Jamie was very knowledgeable. Amazing to see the memorials Soviet and Holocaust and to see buildings that are still standing from the era, some with the damages still evident. Only issue was the size of the group meant that the opportunity to ask questions was limited. Overall though this is a bargain at the price and with all the information you gain.
