If you have any special requests, don’t hestitate to ask.
Is there anything that I should bring for the tour?
Of course this depends on the time of the year – a hat and gloves in the winter, sunglasses in the summer. Please do check the weather before your trip, summers in Berlin can be rather hot (suntan lotion is a must) and the winters can be cold (don’t forget a coat). We always try to make sure our guests stay hydrated on tours, whether that’s coffee or tea, but a bottle of water is always a worthy travel companion.
Are your tours suitable for children?
We cater for guests of all ages and can tailor all our tours accordingly.

That depends on what sort of animal we are talking about. Dogs seem to love the fresh air and walking. Cats have a habit of wandering off on their own.

Gratuities are completely discretionary but always gratefully received. Our guides will always work hard for you and tipping is a great way of them receiving immediate feedback.
