About
My name is Matti - I was born in 1988 on the Eastern side of the Wall, growing up in a city that was growing up itself. Berlin has always fascinated me. There are so many things to discover, stories to tell and hidden places to find. In 2008 I decided to turn my hobby into my job and started working as a tour guide, showing around people of all ages and from all corners of the world.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had been in Berlin a while and wanted to see things that weren't on the normal tourist list. Matti met the challenge! We passed a donut shop, and that sold my husband!!!! To get a little break was totally our choice, but he read my husband correctly! Then on to the wonderful stories of history that we had never heard before. We were very thoughtful afterwards, and very thankful! It was a very nice and informative time. Matti is truly easy to talk to and so friendly! hugs!

We had a very enjoyable tour with you, Matti. Even 10 th graders were listening to you carefully😉. You told us interesting stories about brave Berliner during the time of Second World War. We were impressed of your knowledge and felt comfortable with your pleasant way of talking to us. Next time in Berlin we would love to see some other places in Berlin with you. Thank you very much!

Matti brought the story of Berlin alive and gave us vivid insights into locations across the city that one could so easily have overlooked without his guidance. He showed us places that we wouldn't have known to find and then framed with local knowledge and a deep historical understanding that can satisfy even the most curious history buffs.

It was clear to me that he is immersed in his craft of both understanding even beyond his local knowledge and sharing this in a way that completely satisfied over the three hours of our exploration of this great city.

We did a private tour of the district of Schöneberg with Matti's colleague Anja. This neighborhood was new to us and we learned so many fascinating historical facts about this interesting part of Berlin. Our guide Anja was very knowledgable and took us to places we would have never found on our own. The time just flew by and she is an excellent storyteller. Schöneberg has so much to offer that we couldn't see it all in the 2 hours; we're looking forward to continuing our discovery of this part of town during our next trip to Germany's capital.

Outstanding private tour with Jamie of all the sites of Berlin. 7 hours each day over two days and we covered so many sites and attractions of Berlin. There was no shortage of things to see and do over the two full days that went by so quickly. Jamie was a wealth of knowledge of the history and stories of Berlin. Jamie was professional, friendly, and a great sense of humour. He made our family trip very memorable with his insights and tailored the tour to accommodate our interests in history, food, and culture. Christoff our driver was outstanding as well with additional insights into Berlin life. Definitely very happy with our tours and highly recommend.

Matti is a caring person who created a tour and pace suited to my wife and me as an aging couple with some knee limitations. Shared historical knowledge and commentary (as requested) based on personal experiences and his education. Fluent in his English as well. Well experienced with Berlin and Potsdam public transit making for more opportunities to see what the communities have to offer. Outstanding guide. We would hire him again.

Superb 4-hour walking tour of central Berlin. Matti, a native Berliner, speaks perfect English; he met us in our hotel lobby. He is knowledgeable about all the city’s history; our particular interest was the Nazi and Cold War eras (well represented in the tour), but Matti is able to speak in depth about Germany’s more distant past, and it’s present. We highly recommend this tour!

Matt was amazing and an extremely knowable tour guide. You can tell his passion for his work as he had pictures ready to go to show and explain things in detail about the city of Berlin. I left the tour learning so much about the history of the city of Berlin, communism, the wall, and much more. He even showed us a fun fact of the location where Michael Jackson held his baby off the hotel balcony. It was a lot of fun and if you are visiting the city of Berlin then you need to check out his detailed tours!

Matti was very professional and prompt with his communication. We had a private day tour of Potsdam and he created a personal itinerary of what we wanted to see within the time allotted. He gave us detailed instructions on how and where to meet for our tour. (If you prefer, he can also arrange private pick up and drop off from your hotel). Matti was equipped with photos and an excellent knowledge in the history of Berlin/Potsdam and Germany in general. His insight and detail was not only informative, but also brought humor to his narrative to all of the major sights in Potsdam city. If you're ever in the Berlin area and looking for a personalize tour of the region, I would highly recommend Matti as your tour guide. By the way, if you're from an English speaking Country, Matti is fluent in English and very easy to understand! :)

Matti is an engaging story teller with well researched information about life and politics in Berlin! We had a customized East Berlin tour and his knowledge of the Cold War is supplemented with personal stories from his parents who have first hand experiences that he shares. Matti took us around different parts of the city and we saw areas of importance that are not part of the usual tourist experience. Cannot recommend Matti highly enough!
