Overview

Explore Berlin from a culinary perspective on this private 3-hour food tour with 10 tastings. Following a private guide, visit restaurants and other food venues in the city to experience a variety of dishes, from German to Turkish.
  • 3-hour private Berlin food-tasting tour
  • Try 10 different dishes, snacks, and wine, from sweet to savory
  • Enjoy Asian, Turkish, and German cuisine
  • See Berlin from a local's perspective
Meet your private guide at a location in Berlin to begin your private food tour. Your first tasting is currywurst, a classic German snack you'll enjoy at a family-owned institution with 35 years of history.

Your second and third tastings take place at a market where you'll try fresh buletten and kartoffelsalat (potato salad); then continue to an imbiss, a small food stand, for a hot spring roll, a favorite Asian snack served with sweet and sour sauce. Next up is glühwein (mulled wine) and a chocolate truffle served at a traditional cake shop before you continue to your seventh tasting, a savory kartoffelpuffer, German street food.

Number eight is a Turkish falafel, which you'll order at a window shop, a hidden gem known mostly to locals. Then enjoy a sweet pfannkuchen before your last tasting, an Asian pastry.

Throughout your tour, you'll have the chance to see parts of the city that most tourists don't visit—a great opportunity to gain insight into local Berlin life. Enjoy sharing your guide's love of Berlin's culinary scene and variety of foods, and feel free to let him or her know if you have any special requests; this private tour can be personalized to suit your interests. By the end of your tour, you'll have a well-rounded education of local dishes, carefully chosen by your guide to treat your taste buds.

Note: Tastings two and three are replaced by semmel (bread roll) and leberkäse (a type of meat product) on Sundays.

A good late afternoon/ evening tour with plenty of tapas to try plus drinks at the first stop. Also informative as we walked around the city. The venues were great.

Overall this tour is well arranged and carried out. We enjoyed the 10 samplings. However our guide, Tiago, couldn't have been less interested. He just wanted to get through as quickly as possible to get to his real job. Most of the time he walked 10-20 feet in front of us, didn't carry on much conversation. Never offered us anything to drink except at one stop. We had to beg for napkins. Good choice of food but the tour could have been so much better with an interested guide.

We booked the Private Berlin Food Tour for Friday, March 30 Good Friday with Julio! We were a group of 8 ppl celebrating my husband's birthday! This tour exceeded my expectations! The food was absolutely amazing and Julio was extremely knowledgeable about the food along with Germany's history as a whole. He kept us entertained throughout the entire tour and even told us how to navigate the subway so that we could tour Berlin! If you are having any doubts about this tour, please set them aside and leap! You will not be disappointed, ESPECIALLY if you have Julio as your tour guide. Thank you so much Julio! We absolutely loved you!

I just loved this tour! Carlos was my tour guide and he met me on time at the 36 Curry restaurant. We stopped at various food and drink places which I could have never found on my own. Carlos was friendly and it was interesting to hear about his life experience in Germany as a real local. He has lived in Berlin for many years, but he is originally from Columbia in South America. He knows a lot about the history of Berlin and was very open to answering all of my questions believe me, I had many!. I highly rate this food and drink tasting and walking tour, which is exactly that, you'll walk a lot and get the chance to taste things like curry wurst and other typical German and ethnic treats found in the city. By the end of the three hour tour, I felt like Carlos had become a good friend. Don't miss this tour with Carlos!

Great tour on a cold evening! Julio was knowledgeable and friendly. Very informal with just 3 of us which was nice - we learned a bit of history but it didn't feel like a classroom lecture. It was a mix of German and other cuisines - not fancy, but we didn't expect that. Left very full after 4 hours

was concerned to see some poor reviews of this food tour before we went to Berlin as I arranged the tour on behalf of 6 friends visiting Berlin over New Year. I was right to be concerned. Whilst our guide Julio was friendly and pleasant, he had only lived in Berlin for 3 years so didnt have much local knowleste. We met at Curry36, but didnt eat anything here as we were advised it was a bad place for pickpockets..Our first Stop was for a little pastry at a cake shop, followed by turkey legs, cabbage and a piece of cut up sweet pancake at a market stall. The market looked interesting but there was no chance to look round. We then went to a Vietnamese restaurant for spring rolls. There was then a long walk through an uninteresting neighbourhood to stop a stall selling gluwein and currywust for no apparent reason. The final stop was for a kebab and beer at a rather run down Turkish restaurant. The food overall was average at best. Im very happy to eat food from stalls if they represent excellent examples of local food. These did not, they seemed completely random and no one was expecting us. I cant believe they represented the best Berlin had to offer. We have done lots of food tours before and had praised them to our friends, this one was woefully inadequate and an embarrassment. This was the most expensive tour we did whilst in Berlin. Poor value for money - we were all still hungry at the end. The food we had bore little resemblance to the advertised list on Viator too!

This tour was a waste of 110 ,our guide had very limited knowledge of the food we were given and not much info of the area. we were led to a succession of food stalls/cafes without any apparent logic and we could have done it ourselves without travelling more than a couple of blocks and paid about 20 euros in total. Our guide spent most of the time on his phone checking and sending e mails or answering calls. We felt very disappointed ,we have done food tours in Malaga and Wellington and they were far far superior.

The guide was knowledgeable about the area and generally very good. We enjoyed the walk this was my 5th visit to Berlin and I will return and stay in the area we walked around. However, we booked a food tour and this is the worst I have experienced - the food was dreadful - there were plenty of other places during the tour we could have stopped at but didn't. I would have preferred to try some other concessions in the food market and the street market in addition to the ones we experienced. The worst were the spring rolls why bother and the kebab intimidating - not a place to take western women and very disappointing. When I read though the itinerary for the tour I assumed these items were a German twist to imported cuisine, but they were inedible. I have booked several Viator food tours and my advice to Viator is to distance themselves from this local company who in my opinion has sullied their reputation.

The tour gave a nice sampling of various foods. Met a local at one stop who asked our guide how he found one of the best places in town. We had an enjoyable conversation. Would like to have learned more about the neighborhoods. The guide was answered questions ... just be ready to ask a lot of them.
