We spent a great 4 hours with Yoav upon arrival in Berlin. I contacted him thru his website a couple of months before the trip and he was very accommodating to respond to my requests regarding timing and itinerary. He met us at our hotel and we walked for about 4 hours thru the Mitte area visiting many different sites... More

We did two tours with Yoav, one highlighting the major sites of Berlin with special emphasis on postwar divided Berlin from the East and West perspectives and the other concentrating on the old Jewish community and the holocaust. Both tours were lively, engaging, informative and filled with just the right amount of information to be enlightens but not overwhelmed. Yoav... More

We thought we would spend a couple of jet lagged hours learning about Berlin. Instead we were fascinated for 6 hours (we kept asking for more) seeing sights and learning about history, art, current events as well as hidden nuances. Great guide!

We took a Jewish tour of Berlin with Yoav. He was an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. Although our tour was specifically related to the Jewish History of Berlin, Yoav has a tremendous depth of knowledge related to Berlin and all of German History. He did not just take us to places, he explained the significance and meaning of each... More

We recently found Yoav Sapir through Trip Advisor, and booked him for a private tour in Berlin for my husband, myself and our 3 children (2 pre-teens and a teen). Yoav was fantastic - his knowledge is incredible. Our focus with him was on the Jewish history of Berlin, but we touched on many subjects (Cold War, local restaurants, current... More

We took the Jewish Berlin tour with Natalie. She is very knowledgeable and accomodated to our pace. Our tour took about 4 hours of walking around the Jewish Quarter and sights of Berlin and even though we made it with a child she made it very interesting and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend Natalie for tours around Berlin.

I found Yoav on the internet as most of you have done and prior to booking I read TripAdvisor for recommendations. I also do not want to parrot other commentaries, but Berlin was a treat for 4 of us cruising on the Baltic with only one day to sightsee. Yoav's driver met us at the ship and we met up... More

We agree with all of the wonderful reviews of Yoav!! I won't repeat the previous reviews, but we also found Yoav on the internet, and couldn't have been more pleased. He exceeded our high expectations!! Before beginning our Baltic cruise which would have allowed us to spend 1 day traveling to Berlin, we chose to fly to Berlin first so... More

Our group of six found Yoav on the Internet and we didn't even ask for references (after all, who sends you the name of lousy references?) We didn't understand that Yoav had a PhD in German and Holocaust history, and that he was the nicest guy, and that he would take us on this incredible walking afternoon, showing us well-know... More

We were a party of 6 traveling to Berlin from our Baltic cruise. Yoav was waiting for us at our pre-arranged spot. Our bus from the port was 1 hour late getting to Berlin, so we had lots of ground to cover in just 5 hours. Yoav met us and we were off to the races! He has such an... More
