We made a Berlin introductory tour and Jewish Berlin tour with Natalie. We would echo the other reviews on this site. This was my first visit to Berlin. It is a city with something around every corner - but those things are always obvious, and they need context. Natalie was a pleasure to spend time with - calm, sensitive and... More

We spent most of our first day in Berlin with Yoav. It was a great way to get oriented to the city and to see some interesting points with a very knowledgeable and articulate guide. Not only was Yoav an excellent guide, he was very generous with advice about what to do on days when he was not available to... More

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.
