We were five days in Berlin in August ’05. On three of those days we were guided privately by Markus Mueller-Tenckhoff (Markgrafenstr. 39, 10117 Berlin, Germany; phone 0049  160 80 88 011, www.markusmuellertenckhoff.de or www.guidesinberlin.de/markus).
Markus went at a pace that seniors can handle and made sure that we saw all of the sights worth seeing. He was able to tell us a tremendous amount of history and show us East Berlin, North Berlin, Jewish sites, galleries, museums and restaurants. We would never have gotten the flavor of Berlin without him.
Markus charges €250 (near $303) per day without a vehicle. This includes a get-together in your hotel to plan your outings and lots of advice for evening dining and entertainment. Highly recommended.
