    5 star rating Untz Untz Untz Eric was a great guide showing us several Berlin techno clubs. He made recommendations on clubs to visit which would suit our tastes and gave us hints on how to get in! It was wonderful learning about the history and rise of the Techno scene in Berlin. If you like techno I would definitely recommend this tour 🙂

    5 star rating Great city walk with Eric Great city walk in both the eastern block parts and modern parts of Berlin with guide Eric and my seven norwegian friends. He understood what we wanted in advance and matched our interests and our humour. We spent four hours with him this day i Berlin. As an extra service he gave us advise about where to go out in the evening. The suggestions he came up with were great too. Thanks a lot!

He took us to a lot of interesting places, had good stories to tell, and were in general a very helpful and friendly guy. He even saved our night as he gave very good tips on where to go. Great guy & absolutely recommended!

    5 star rating Great tour that really added to our holiday Techno music and street art. Eric took us to the most fascinating parts of former East Berlin on this bike tour. As an avid clubber himself he knows a lot about the different clubs, and the background of the nooks and crannies where they are to be found. Eric was friendly, knowledgeable and good fun.

    We highly recommend Berlin like a Local! Berlin Cold War and Wall bike tour. Eric is a fantastic guide with a lot of passion for the history of Berlin! We had a fantastic time! Besides the history, architecture and stories he takes you to special places which you can only find when you are "a local".

    This tour was perfect I recently booked a tour with Eric of the street art in Berlin for my sisters hen weekend. She absolutely loves art and graffiti. Eric is polite, patient (we had LOTS of photos), and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering tours of Berlin.

    Highly recommended for a company tour I booked the Wall & Berlin Cold War walking tour with Eric for our company and it was really great! Eric took us to places we could have not found otherwise, shared information you cannot learn at a history class, showed some interesting architectural details and really made the cold war atmosphere palpable. He's very knowledgeable, sociable and entertaining. Highly recommended with no hesitations!

    5 star rating Excellent and Meaningful Guide! Eric loves Berlin and that shows in the stories and detail he puts into the tour. I took the street art tour and it was fantastic. He takes you to the best vantage points and thoughtfully describes each background.

    Definitely take a tour with Eric as an individual or a small group to see Eric's superb perspective of the city. I really liked the view from the water and here are a few of my favorite pics but go see the rest for yourself.

    5 star rating One of the greatest tours that I have ever done AMAZING Street Art Tour! Eric the guide, was so knowledgeable about all the street art, artists and areas. It was a 3 hour tour, walking around different areas of Berlin that we would have no idea about and would never have had the chance to see if it wasn't for Eric. I couldn't recommend this tour more!

    The real Berlin, away from the generic tourist stuff I had the pleasure of walking around some of Berlin's coolest suburbs and seeing some incredible art work along the way. Eric is very knowledgeable and through him I got a history in Art, Music and Berlin itself. Eric is able to show you the real Berlin, away from the generic tourist stuff, with this tour you really appreciate how cool Berlin as a capital city is and you get a feel for the warmth that the city has. If you want to really see Berlin, take a walk, a cycle or a jog with Eric. He's the man!

    Some hidden places we wouldn't have seen on our own We went to Berlin for a bachelorette's party and we hired a tour with Berlin like a local. It was a really interesting tour, we learned about some of Berlin's history and saw some hidden places we wouldn't have seen on our own. Eric was fun and very pleasant, and told us many interesting facts about the city. I totally recommend it! Thank you!

We covered a variety of spots from the Berlin wall, urban garden projects and street art to all weekend techno clubs / raves! Eric is very knowledgeable on Berlin’s history and gave us an insight into Berlin life today. He was a great guide and we would recommend him to anyone!

    5 star rating Informative and Fun My husband and I are visiting Berlin and we signed up for Eric’s Berlin Wall and Cold War private walking tour. Having grown up during that time and remembering the fall of the Wall, it was an amazing experience to see where history occurred.

    Eric’s tour was a perfect mix of facts, sights, and discussion, all presented in and interesting and relatable way. We even got some street art thrown into the tour! Eric was friendly, informative and entertaining.

    I highly recommend Eric’s tour for an in-depth orientation to the Cold War.

    The best tour I've done I went on 2 tours with Eric. My first tour was a walking architectural tour. As a photographer, i was very specific with Eric about what i wanted to shoot. He did a lot of advance preparation to assure I received the best tour possible. It was so good, i booked a second bicycle art tour. He was very prepared and knowledgeable. I would never have been able to see as much and learn as much without his guidance. He is patient, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. I highly recommend him.

    Answer all the questions you want to know about local Berlin If you want to know about the street art of Berlin and don't want the commercial 'spin', Eric is the guide for you. He gave great insight into the artworks and the culture behind the development of some of Berlin's hippest areas. More than just a street art tour, Eric will answer all the questions you want to know about local Berlin.

    5 star rating Brilliant Techno Tour! We have been coming to Berlin - the best city in the world! - many times. I wanted to understand more about techno - Berlin’s anthem - and the amazing clubbing scene in Berlin. This was an afternoon tour - we didn’t go into any clubs - but Eric was brilliant. He told us about the history of techno - how it started and evolved, and then took us to some of Berlin’s techno clubs. Eric told us about each one - it’s particular features and character. We had a brilliant time. Eric is a top top recommend!

    Powerful understanding of the political and cultural Berlin world My boyfriend and I arranged a street art walking tour with Eric in Berlin earlier this month in march and we are so pleased we did! Eric's knowledge of street art in Berlin was excellent and how he explained it related to all the cultural history and music scene was more than we expected. Such an interesting few hours and seeing pieces of art we would never have found and if we did, really understood what it was about and how it related to a much more deeper and powerful understanding of the political and cultural Berlin world. I would recommend Eric for his passionate, sometimes humorous and excellent knowledge. Next time I'm in Berlin I'll be arranging the techno tour 🙂 highly recommended!! Angelique and Wayne.

    He also made recommendations for other places for us to visit on our short stay which really enhanced our visit.

    We would thoroughly recommend him and will tell all our friends!

    Did the Berlin Street art walking Tour with Eric with two friends. Very enjoyable although a very cold and raw day in the city. Although we complained too much about the weather, Eric was very patient with us! He was very informative and we learned much more than just about street art. Eric is very knowledgeable about the city and he shared his knowledge on a number of topics with us. The street art is everywhere and Eric tried to focus on certain special artists and was able to give some details about the artists. I recommend doing this tour.

    Eric was very knowledgeable about the Cold War and the Berlin Wall. He kept us on schedule and was very educational. Our teenagers enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. We highly recommend this tour.

    We took this great tour with Eric who showed us a range of street artists. Eric was really knowledgeable and gave us some insight into each artist. We also learnt a bit about the less tourist trodden and interesting areas of Berlin. Eric was happy to answer questions and sent a list of the artists after the tour. Well worth…

    A wonderful Street Art Biking Tour! A small group of us booked Eric and his Street Art tour via bike on a cool summer day. Eric was super communicative over all channels, and very clear about where to meet us to start the tour. He also arranged for bike rentals which was helpful to some of the group. The tour itself hit on some of the highlights of the large scale street art in Berlin covering Mitte, Kreuzberg and Friedrichschain – it sounds like a lot of neighborhoods, but the pace was super easy (and we stopped off for a coffee). Eric was a wonderful guide with great insights in the artists/crews that created the art, and had some interesting tidbits about the different styles and approaches. There were definitely a couple of gems that I normally would not have seen just walking around on my own, and it was great to have him point them out. Definitely would recommend a tour with Eric!

  • Nicolas

    Had the Berlin Street Art bike tour with Eric and it was more than I expected: great insights on street art obviously, but I also learned a ton on the historical background, architecture, places to eat and drink. Eric is also a great host and keeps it fun and interesting. Would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially those who don’t do tours – Eric will change your mind. Danke aus Bangkok.

    A perfect overview of east Germany and the cold war: Eric took myself and my 13 year old niece on the 3 hour cycling tour. We had a really great time, the cycling was easy and fun, and we stopped frequently whilst Eric told us the story of what happened in that spot during the Cold War. He is knowledgable and makes it all very interesting and we both really liked him. I learnt a lot and saw places I’d never seen on previous unguided trips to the city. Thanks Eric! Next time we’re back we’ll come back for the Techno tour ?

  • Jason

    Berlin street art and history of of the techno scene. If you are looking for a tour that covers much more than the usual tour. Choose ‘Berlin like a local’ with Eric. I had the best morning today discovering Berlin like I would never have experienced on my own. He knows we’re to find all the great street art, history of the Berlin techno scene plus so much more. I highly recommend seeing Berlin by bike with him! Thanks Eric!

  • Julie

    Eric was a wonderful tour guide! His walking tour on the Cold War and wall was enjoyable, informative, and a lot of fun. Would recommend his tours to any and everyone!

  • Salva

    I took the jogging tour with Eric last week and all I can say is that it was amazing! Is a great way to get to know the city while doing a morning run, and doing differently. At easy pace, we went through historic parts of Berlin, stopping at those that require more explanation. What called my attention about the tour, further than the fun, was the deep knowledge Eric has about the city and its history and how much he enjoys doing his job. I really recommend anybody to let themselves get lost in Berlin with Eric, you’ll see the city with different eyes.

  • Steven

    Great insight into what has shaped Berlin with an emphasis on the impact of the cold war. We took the private Berlin Cold War cycling tour with Eric. He did a wonderful job guiding us through the physical and ideological forces that has made Berlin what it is today. He was all too happy to answer any questions we had. He also has some good recommendations of some decent German food handy!

  • Nicolas Carbillet

    Thank you for the tour, Eric!!! Even if the weather was not that great, we really enjoyed your comments and your way of life in Berlin! Be sure that I will spread the word!!! Take care and all the best for the future!

    Loved this tour! It was so much fun and really interesting. Eric showed us so many cool spots and was a wealth of information! It was something different than the ‘standard’ walking tours as he had so much local insight. He gave us great advice on the nightlife too so we knew exactly where to go! I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Berlin

    I had already been to Berlin many times, and thought I knew the clubbing scene. I was amazed to learn so much about the techno scene during this tour. Amazing work !
