Learn more about the divided city during the Cold War years as you explore the exhibition and hear the harrowing tales of how residents attempted to flee from Russian occupied East Berlin into Allied occupied West Berlin.

Finally, explore the vibrant urban quarter of Mitte, where your guide will point out little-known attractions including the Missing House on Große Hamburger Strasse and the picturesque Heckmann Höfe.

We had a great time with Miha as he showed us around Berlin and took us to some of the places we wouldn't see if we had followed a traditional guide. We were amazed at how much ground we covered and managed to see every sight we had planned to visit in a single day. This may sound rushed however due to Mihas excellent humour and knowledge we did each sight in great detail and left knowing and understanding the history in greater depth. The World War 2 tour was brilliant! This was a really nice day and we would like to recommend Miha to everyone else who wants to see the real Berlin.

My girlfriend and I went to Berlin to understand a bit more about the history of the city. The aim was to get a great first impression of the city and visit the most interesting and iconic landmarks related to WWII in 4 hours! Miha took us to see all the main highlights, Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial, and other hidden gems, but in a really fun way. He is a great story teller, has a great sense of humour and knows the city inside out and is ready to answer all your questions about the wall and life in Berlin. Miha customized the tour for us and even took the request to stop somewhere to eat the typical Currywurst! It was just what we wanted.

We really recommend booking with Miha!

We LOVED this tour and our guide, Kristan smith. He was fabulous! Would HIGHLY recommend this to others. We got around Berlin and saw so many places of interest. We did a fair amount of walking! But he was very knowledgeable and knew his history well.
