Matti is a real Berliner. There’s not too many of them in Berlin and even less that speak with Matti's peculiarly American accent. Born in former East Berlin a year before the fall of the Berlin wall, Matti grew up with the city. Currently studying History and English at the Univesity in Potsdam, Matti started working as a tour guide because he wanted to share his passion for the city with people from all over the world. Feel free to ask me him anything you want, except what he's going to do with his incredibly practical degree.
Born and raised in the sunny, sandy California desert, Summer then studied Art History in the hallowed halls of Ivy-League academia in New England before deciding to make Berlin her home. An active member of the English comedy scene in the German capital since her arrival in 2008, Summer also continues to work as a journalist with a focus on contemporary art and performance. Her love for exploring cities' multi-layered histories, wealth of anecdotes and distinctive flair for wit makes for an unforgettable journey through Berlin.
Having spent her childhood in Northern Germany and the US, Myrna soon discovered her passion for travelling and exploring other countries and cultures. After finishing her degree in 'Culture and Language Mediation' in Denmark she spent the following years living in various countries around the world, her favourite being Ireland, where she actually stayed for 10 years. Wanting to share her travelling experience with others, she started working as a tour guide more than 7 years ago now and has moved her 'base' to the outskirts of Berlin. The area where she lives includes the popular 'Müggelsee', a large lake surrounded by sandy beaches, beautiful forest, medieval fishing villages and GDR-era relicts, which make for a fascinating and at the same time relaxing cycling tour not far from the buzz of downtown Berlin.
Sarah grew up in the heart of the English countryside, but, like many others, couldn’t resist the attraction of Berlin. Her love affair with the city began with a week-long visit in 2007 and since then she has kept coming back for more. Various stints living and working in Germany and Austria (not forgetting being a Sound of Music tour guide in Salzburg) and a degree in German and Linguistics later and Sarah landed in Berlin to stay. A self-confessed history enthusiast, Sarah was not only drawn to Berlin’s rich and complex history, but also its thriving, cultural scene and ever-changing nature; she is thrilled to be able to share both Berlin’s famous past and its hidden gems with others.
