My name is Jo Eckardt. I studied literature, history, and social work - in Cologne and in New York. Since 2001 I have been living in Berlin. It's my favorite city! In 2004 I started my own touring company called A Friend in Berlin. It's so much fun showing tourists the city, because they usually don't know what to expect, and they are always impressed! When I don't tour the city, I write books (sorry, they are mostly in German).
