About Me

A portrait photo of Alexander La Rocca in Mauerpark

Originally coming from the USA, I moved to Berlin in 2010 and began working in the tourism and events sector shortly thereafter. Over the years, I have honed my expertise - having successfully organized or led thousands of tours, trips, and events.

This background has equipped me with a unique combination of skills to produce the best group experiences. Though most importantly my deep-rooted passion for organization and aptitude for collaborating with people on projects doesn't hurt either. Said otherwise: I love organizing things and watching people enjoy themselves.

Driven by this commitment to excellence, I promise to make your experience in Berlin not just memorable, but fun and enriching.

  • What services are available at Your Trip Berlin?
    As an Event and Trip operator, I can organize a variety of events for your company or team in both German and English languages (others feel free to inquire) Offered Services Restaurant reservations and catering services Tours, Museum visits, Workshops, and similar activities Full-day itineraries Transport (taxis, coaches, etc.) Venues (including catering and other services on location) Not offered Accommodation Flights Planning for Political or Extremist Events or Concerts
  • What do my services cost?
    A Net Flat Rate (estimated hours) + Curation Fee (15% of activities booked) + VAT (MwSt) A non-refundable 50% deposit of the Flat Rate is required prior to starting arrangements. 1 Week before the event, the remaining 50% of the Flat Rate + Curation Fee will be required. All conditions will be contractually set and legally binding. If you or your business is located outside of the EU, a different payment structure may be required. We can discuss those details 🙂 *Please Note: If any additional requests arise in the course of planning (e.g. increase of participants, location change, date change, etc.), an agreed-upon increase of my Flat Rate may be charged.
  • What am I paying for?
    Short and sweet: you are paying to have an event or trip created based on your budget and knowledge of those you are arranging for. Generally speaking, after a free meeting with you, I will arrange for your trip or event within the budget and outlines you have requested. This will include first a draft itinerary and after feedback either another draft or moving into final organization of your trip or event.
  • How do I pay?
    Bank Transfer (Invoice) PayPal Credit Card (additional fees may apply)
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Note: a non-refundable 50% deposit of my Flat Rate Fee + VAT is required before I begin arrangements. The remaining 50% and Curation Fee + VAT is required up to 1 week before the start of the event. If the event is canceled within 1 week to 24 hours before the event, you will receive 100% of the Curation Fee in return. Any charges arising due to cancellations from booked vendors (e.g. coach companies, restaurants, workshops, tours, activities, etc.) are to be paid by you and will be sent promptly and without delay. If a cancellation is requested, all arrangements with all relevant vendors will be canceled by me.
  • How are e.g. activities, transport, venues etc. paid?
    We can discuss how to best handle such payments to ensure smooth planning as well as any relevant deposits, but generally the invoices or payments if necessary prior to the event are handled by you or your company. For company events, in 99% of cases invoices are directly sent to relevant HR or P&C departments or are paid on site by the respective party. Due to tax and liability reasons, I prefer not to invoice for arrangements and transfer myself. If required, we can discuss further on a case-by-case basis.
