Die Berlinbesucher, denen ich die Stadt vermittle, kommen aus der ganzen Welt. Mal sind es Einzelpersonen, Familien oder Kleingruppen, mal größere Reisegruppen, Schulklassen oder Firmenbesucher. Ob zu Fuß, in Bus oder Limousine oder mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln: Ich versuche stets, mich ganz individuell einzustellen. Hier die Meinung meiner Gäste.
Thank you Bernd! We all had a lovely day with you. John thinks you should be the voice on audio books. You are gracious, informed, and delightful to spend time with.

All of us want to say thank you for what was truly an outstanding day of touring. Your historical and personal insights into the past, present and prospective future of Germany enlightened all of us and we haven’t stopped talking about our day!
We spent two days with Bernd, Berlin and Potsdam. Both tours were excellent. Bernd was exceptionally conscientious about communicating with us beforehand in order to to customize the tours to our tastes, abilities and knowledge levels. Personally, I had done some reading and research on Berlin before I came and found that Bernd could fill in many gaps and add a layer of history that added vastly to my understanding of the city and its Prussian history. Bernd gets my highest recommendation both as a student of history and a Berliner who has an understanding of and enthusiasm for the city.

We’ve travelled throughout the world and worked with many private tour guides. Rarely, do we work with a tour guide like you. It was obvious from first communications, you’re a true professional and sincerely care about the quality of your tours. We customized our tour and you delivered exactly what we discussed. We appreciate your vast knowledge of Potsdam and the well-organized day. Truthfully, we did not want the day to end! You far exceeded our expectations and rank at the top of the tour guides we worked with.
I had pretty high expectations about the benefits of our tours, which you far exceeded. Because of our time with you, we were able to get a much deeper and broader understanding of and appreciation for Berlin. We hope to come back, and will contact you if we do. And we will strongly recommend you to any friends traveling to Berlin.
We had a terrific time and the balance of our Germany excursions. We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to help us rediscover such a beautiful and cultural city. It made our limited time well spent along with your expert knowledge for the various parts of the city. You made our trip to Berlin extra special!!!
Thank you for your interesting and insightful tour of Berlin! We had a good time, learned a tremendous amount and only wish that we had had more time with you.
We had a great time yesterday. You are an amazing guide and a gift for lucky tourists like us!! Thank you again. Come visit us in Colorado!
Our time touring Berlin with Bernd was the highlight of our stay in Germany. He was well-informed of course, but also provided a unique perspective having lived in Berlin before and after the Wall came down. With his encyclopedic knowledge of German history and culture over the last 2 centuries, Bernd was able to design two days of touring that exceeded our every expectation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with you. You really tailored the tour to WWII sites and background that we requested. Of all our tours in Europe to date I enjoyed yours the most. Our boys enjoyed it as well since you were able to mix in sites that captured their attention as well. I am definitely going to recommend you to anyone I know traveling to Berlin in the future.
It was by far the best day of our travels overseas.
You were a highlight of the trip. You have amazing knowledge and enhanced our understanding of the strengths and struggles of Berlin and Germany.
I cannot thank you enough for your thoughtful, interesting, and informative tour of Potsdam. My family was extremely with your planning of the trip from the minute you picked us up at our hotel until delivering us back 9 hours later. We learned so much about the history of Germany and you made it extremely fun to learn about the history with the stories you gave us…that only a historian like yourself would know. I certainly recognized the extra steps you took to make our tour great such as pre-arranging our transfers, finding a perfect restaurant for lunch, and finding little known spots that are historically significant, but off the regular tourists path!
I would strongly recommend your services to travelers to Berlin seeking a well-planned tour with private guide that has a great and personal understanding of Germany’s history. Having lived in Berlin during the fall of the Wall, you can speak with great understanding and appreciation about Germany’s history. Our only regret is that we did not have more time after a full 9 hours to spend with you!
We had a fantastic tour with Berndt, he was extremely knowledgeable, charismatic and a great communicator. Berlin is daunting (in a good sense) and without Bernd’s guidance, it would have been a real challenge to get a feel of the place. Before our arrival, he emailed us with some great recommendations of restaurants, bars and areas we could visit. During our walking tour, he seamlessly took us from past to present with a lot of insider info and an objective outlook. An amazing city to visit with Bernd’s tour being an absolute highlight!
Bernd Gutberlet is a world-class guide. Knowledgeable, approachable, and very easy to be with, he infuses his tours with his personal experiences. A historian, by profession, he not only shares events and dates but is skilled at conveying a broader context. Easily jumping from the present to the past, Bernd has a sweeping command of history, politics, culture, media, psychology, literature, art and geography. Our six hours together was a joyful mix of walking tour, graduate seminar and a great first date.
My sons and I all learned so much from you about Berlin, its people, and its history. Your tour was both enlightening and inspiring. We recommend your tour most highly to all of our friends who visit Berlin!

The one-on-one tour I took with Bernd was the best tour I’ve ever taken. Bernd is incredibly knowledgable and I can’t wait to get back to Berlin for another tour.
The level of detail, your knowledge and way of interacting and scoping the whole tour were simply not just an enjoyable but an unforgettable memory. Far from your typical mass-made tours, I would not only recommend you but encourage anyone who is looking for the „real“ Berlin experience to look you up.

The tour was amazing!! Thank you so very much!!! Jared can’t stop talking about the tour and your vast amount of knowledge. After our first two days of Berlin, we felt a void but you brought Berlin alive for us. Of all of our guides, you were the best. Thanks for all of the information.
Marion und Daniel
Die Tour über Berlin als Hauptstadt des Kalten Krieges hat uns beiden großen Spaß gemacht und wir haben viel dabei gelernt. Chapeau!

Wir waren letzten Samstag in Berlin und durften Sie/dich als Privat-Reiseführer erleben. Wir möchten uns nochmals ganz herzlich für die ganz spezielle Trabi-Tour, die wir sehr genossen haben, und die nicht zuletzt dank Ihren/deinen ausführlichen Erklärungen und persönlichen Geschichten für uns zu einem ganz besonderen Erlebnis geworden ist.
Sie haben mit Ihrem/deinem Engagement die besondere Note, die man von einer solchen Tour erwartet, in unseren Berlin-Aufenthalt gebracht – wir werden die Trabi-Tour noch lange in Erinnerung behalten.

I don’t know how to thank you for one of the most amazing days ever. In a few short hours, you accomplished what would have taken me days, weeks, or even months to learn on my own!
I can’t tell you how excited and energized I felt to learn about Berlin—to “decode” the city—through your eyes and your experiences. … The full impact of everything that you shared with me emerged slowly over the course of the days that followed.

Frank, Jane, Mary and Jaan,
Thank you for the wonderful tour you gave us around Berlin. I speak for all of us when I say that your tour was one of the highlights of the trip. It was interesting seeing sections of the city that most tourists do not see.
It was particularly interesting hearing your description of events the day the wall fell. Berlin is obviously a beautiful and important city and you are fortunate to be one of its historians.

Heute komme ich endlich mal dazu, Dir – auch im Namen meiner Freundin Gabi – recht herzlich für die super schöne Sightseeing-Tour am Samstag zu danken. Wir hatten einen riesen Spaß!
Wir haben am Samstag Abend übrigens Deinem Tipp Folge geleistet und waren in „Clärchens Ballhaus“. Ich kann nur sagen: EIN SUPER TIPP VON DIR!!!! Wir haben Stunden auf der Tanzfläche verbracht und fanden es dort wirklich super schön. Also Bernd, nochmals vielen vielen Dank … und wenn wir das nächste Mal in Berlin sind … dann buchen wir Dich wieder … einen anderen Guide wollen wir nicht… ;-))
