In the beginning of 2019 we partnered with Amazon.com on their secret new project: a platform allowing customers to travel virtually, from the comfort of their homes, by connecting them in real time with tour guides and hosts all over the world. Seeing the incredible potential of such a project, we got to work creating experiences that really showcase the best that Berlin has to offer.
After 1.5 years of hard work: perfecting the routes with our professional, experienced, passionate and dedicated tour guides, testing hardware, adding fascinating, historical multimedia content, as well as conducting over 2000 test tours, we are proud to say that we have been chosen as Amazon.com’s Featured Partner on this new platform!
How it Works
Amazon Explore is a new service that connects you with an Essence of Berlin host for a customized 1-to-1 session, allowing you to see, hear, and talk about things as they happen in real time. Imagine sitting at your computer and with just one click you are transported to one of the most exciting cities on the planet: where Prussian Kings once ruled with an iron fist, where history’s greatest criminals waged a war that left a continent in ruins, where a Wall separated a city for over two decades. Watch from home, as your guide walks along the Canals of Venice, shows you the highlights of Madrid or Barcelona’s stunning Sagrada Familia.
Our virtual experiences are all live, streamed to you directly from the sights and fully-interactive, using Amazon.com’s brand new software and platform. Each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of fascinating multimedia.
