Our tailor-made, customised city tours are designed to make for rich, rewarding and entertaining days out. We’ve laid the mainstream tours to waste, coming up with our own unique, personalised versions.
The writing students who join our programme will be asked ahead of time if they have anything specific that really interests them, and after this we sit with our tour guides and plan the excursions accordingly. This means each and every time we run our monthly programmes they are cutting edge and fresh. We constantly look out for new and innovative ways to explore foreign cities.
This summer our city tours will take us through Berlin, a treasure chest of art, history, culture, nightlife and stunning parks and nature.
Here are some examples of our previous excursions:
There are 80 lakes in Berlin! Our tour covered 5 in one day, but we’re happy to recommend some others.
We visited 8 of the most famous graffiti murals in Berlin, as well as discussing the craze of street art in this city.
This city tour takes us round the back streets of, perhaps, Berlin’s most desirable district. Full of art, culture, intrigue and nightlife..
PALATIAL PARADISE – POTSDAM TOUR
There are 16 incredible palaces in Potsdam. Our tour took us to two of the most famous – Sanssouci and Glienicke, as well as long walk through the stunning palatial gardens.
FORESTS, MOUNTAINS & SPIES – GRUNEWALD / TEUFELSBERG TOUR
A walk through the vast forest of Grunewald culminates in a trip to the hugely interesting former Cold war listening station at Teufelsberg, which resides on an 80m high mountain of rubble.
