Size Matters

Experience Berlin intimately with our small group tours, designed to create a personal and familiar atmosphere. We prioritize getting to know our guests, hearing their perspectives, and addressing their questions. Tailoring the tour to your interests, we aim to provide a unique experience every time, avoiding scripted speeches. Additionally, we respect the local neighborhoods’ preferences by keeping our groups small, as many places in Berlin prefer to avoid large groups of tourists.

Unfuck tourism

We understand the complexities of being tourists ourselves in other cities and acknowledge the love-hate relationship Berlin has with tourism. While local businesses rely on tourism, we also recognize the challenges posed by mass tourism.

Our mission is to “unfuck tourism” by guiding visitors to support local Berliner businesses. We prioritize small groups, aiming to foster cultural, social, and sustainable tourism experiences, moving away from purely commercial endeavors. Our long-term vision is to make tourism a positive force that supports and uplifts local residents, addressing issues such as rising rents, limited living space, and higher prices in the gastronomy industry.

Join us in reshaping tourism in Berlin, creating a more meaningful and beneficial experience for both visitors and the local community.


What comes to Berlin stays in Berlin

Support local Berliner businesses and embrace alternative shopping experiences with us! We take our guests to unique places that promote up-cycling projects, sustainable practices, vegan food options, and local “Spätis” (late-night convenience stores). By encouraging tourists to spend their money in local Berlin shops, we ensure that it directly benefits the community rather than going to big international corporations, agencies, or shopping malls.

We aim to redefine the visitor experience by showcasing how shopping, dining, and nightlife can be cultural, social, and sustainable. Join us in discovering an alternative way to explore the city, where your choices contribute to the local economy and foster a vibrant, authentic Berlin.
