Private guide in Germany - typical fees?

Jump to last reply

Hi. We are looking at a 4 hour private walking tour (for 2) of Berlin as part of our short time in Berlin at a cruise stop.

The fees are "between 60-90/Euro per hour based on "what you can afford and what you think of the tour".

I have nothing to compare this to - have any of you used a private guide in Germany?

All I know is that in Sicily and Ephesus, on our last cruise, we hired private guides who picked us up at the cruise dock and transported us all over the place and I know we didn't pay anywhere near 600+ Euro (tours were about 6 hours) for each of those trips. (I think Ephesus was about $300). I know I'm not comparing apples to apples, but the Germany fees seem high - which is why I am posting this for your thoughts and experiences.

With our Germany situation, we will transport ourselves to Berlin and meet the guide for a 4 hour walking tour - no car involved.

There is no deposit, but a cancellation fee was mentioned. I asked for clarification, since no deposit is required:

<<If you were to cancel with a very short time frame and I can't fill the time I have held for you I simply ask for a small fee as a compensation for lost work. This has only ever happened once and the client transferred €150 which is what I asked for.

I respect that I am tying up this tour guide's time if I cancel (and I can't imagine we would, but one never knows). Is 150 Euro a "small fee"?

What do you think of these charges? Any insights? If you any guides you've used and loved, please let me know. Toucan2's guide was already booked. :(
