Private Tours in Berlin

Do you wish you knew somebody in Berlin who could help you decide where to stay and what to see? Whether you travel alone, with family, or in a group, I will help you plan your trip and show you around once you get here: On foot, by car, or by bus. Get the support you would get from a friend or relative! I’ll also suggest restaurants and help purchase concert tickets. If I am not available, one of my guides will be.


My name is Jo Eckardt.
I lived in New York for 19 years teaching German at NYU and working for the UN. In 2001 I returned to Berlin. Even though I still miss New York, I don’t regret the move. Berlin is a great place and I’d love to show it to you!
