We are a family with two boys, 18 and 11. We did a tour today focusing on the Jewish history of Berlin, including the origins of Reform Judaism and sites related to The Holocaust. The thing that made this tour stand out was that this was not just a tour of "this happened here" and "this building was..." but a... More

Today Yoav took my family: teenage kids, my husband and me around the neighbourhood of Berlin where the majority of the Jewish population of Berlin resided. We saw many poignant monuments, sights and heard fascinating stories about individual Jews in Berlin. We visited the former Jewish girls' school, Jusische Madchenschule, which is now a collection of art galleries and the... More

Being with Yoav is like taking an interactive history class! My husband and I have just spent two days with him being guided through Berlin. Yoav doesn't allow one minute to go by without using it for a teaching moment! This was a powerful and poignant two days of discovery... We could not have done this alone! Thank you!!!

We spent 5 hours with Yoav and driver on October 27,2014. This allowed us the time to see historic sites in Berlin, Wannsee and Grunewald and to have flexibility on time spent at each site. We were also able to visit places in Berlin that would not have been possible in a tour bus. Yoav's expertise helped us review a... More

We spent 2 days in Berlin with Yoav--going to the major sites one would expect, but also spending time in locations certainly not on the top 10 in guidebooks. I think the latter are what we will remember most. Yoav excels at conveying the context of what happened where, and in introducing his guests to a Berlin that is lively... More

We are a family of six adults from Israel, we spent two half days with Yoav, he was very pleasant, knowledgable and friendly, open to every question, we enjoyed the time we had with him .. We would'nt have been able to learn as much by doing it ourselves. Inselberg Family.

On 1 October 2014, my wife and I undertook a combined "Berlin Highlights" and "Jewish Quarter" tour with Natalie Sapir. Natalie provided us with an absolutely fascinating and enjoyable seven hour experience that we will remember with appreciation for many days to come. Natalie is an excellent guide who is, not only knowledgeable, but passionate about her city. Her friendly... More

My son and I had a one day private tour with Yoav which was tailored made to our interests. So, Yoav managed to accommodate a 19 year old and a much older 54 year old with no problem and a lot of fun - despite the grim focus of our tour. Yoav covered much ground and we saw things that... More

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
