About us

Original Berlin Walks was founded in 1993 when husband and wife Nick and Serena Gay started showing people to historical “Third Reich” sites in the newly reunited German capital, Berlin. What started as fun side project for a pair of historians is now Berlin’s leading walking tour company. Running multiple tours every day for more than 100,000 guests per year Berlin Walks is easily your best choice to make your trip to Berlin a memorable one.

In 2018 Original Hamburg was established as an extension of Original Berlin Walks in order to provide the same quality to its guest that Berlin has for 25 years.

All of our guides have academic backgrounds, and deliver their highly entertaining tours in perfect English. With more than 99+% positive ratings on TripAdvisor, you know that when you book a public or private tour with Berlin Walks you’re going to get only the best possible experience.

Our guides

Adriana
Adriana
Adriana Stein joins us from Joseph, Oregon, USA, a tiny farming community with 1000 residents. She later moved to Portland, OR to complete her Bachelor's of Arts in Anthropology and English, as well as a Writing minor. She moved to Hamburg, Germany after graduation in April 2016 after falling in love with the city when visiting as a tourist. She has worked as a freelancer since her arrival as an English teacher, Marketing Consultant, and more recently as a tour guide. A keen German-speaker, Adriana also loves to speak Spanish, which she picked up during her bachelor studies. She absolutely loves Hamburg and is planning to stay put and show you exactly what makes the city so spectacular.
Anna
Anna
Anna is a Hamburger born and raised! In Germany Hamburg is known as the ‘door to the world,’ and for Anna that’s no different, she’s lived all over the world, but for her home in Hamburg will always be the best! She’s keen to show off her home town and explain the most exciting, most important moments of the ever-changing history of Hamburg.
Beate
Beate
Beate came to Hamburg for love (not just of the city!). Having worked in the industry since 1981 and lead tours across not only Hamburg and Berlin, but Germany, Europe, and the world, Beate joined our team and can now be seen leading people through Hamburg and its history, rain or shine. Beate’s infectious love and respect of history are what make her tours so special. Whether you’re taking our Discover Hamburg tour in English or German, you’re going to learn a lot on your walk through town. Deutsch
Cara
Cara
I'm a trained and certified Tour Guide and used to guide tourists in Iran years back. With my passion for traveling and getting to know more cultures, in 2011 I started the Master programme of UNESCO World Heritage in Germany to complete my Art, Culture, Tourism, and Heritage mosaic. Once visiting Hamburg in 2011, it won my heart! Years later after living in different cities of Iran, Italy, and Germany, in 2016 I made my mind for my Wahlheimat (chosen home), Hamburg and today I gladly show the city to its visitors.
Eva
Eva
Our ball of energy from Austria, Eva came to Hamburg by chance after training as an actress at the distinguished Vienna Conservatory. After touring Germany, Austria, and the world (Russia, Czech Republic, Switzerland, and China!), Eva decided to make the beautiful Hanseatic city of Hamburg her home back in 1997. Still working as an actress, Eva jumped at the chance to join our team in 2018 to share not only her passion for the city’s history, but its cultural development and art scene. That means you’ll see Eva not only on the streets discussing Hamburg’s rich history, but in clubs with musicians, and live on stage as well.
Jonny
Jonny
Jonny mostly works with us back in Berlin, but every now and then you’ll see him in his second German home, Hamburg. Jonny came over to Germany from England in 2010 and only expected to stay for 6 months, but one thing lead to another, and now he’s become a German citizen! With a deep love for history, a beer or three, and a silly sense of humour, Jonny loves to get out on the streets to make visitors learn and laugh alike.
