Early This week we, (group of 4 people), took Yoav for 1 day (6 hours) tour in berlin. Since it was our first trip to Berlin ever, We asked a tour for "beginners", meaning we need someone to connect the main historical sits, and fill our knowledge gap inbetween. Yoav met us at our hotel (Eurostars -Excellent) lobby, and took... More

Yoav and Natalie were our tour guides on separate days for a walking tour of Berlin. They took into consideration our age and paced the tour accordingly. They were pleasant and very knowledgeable. Yoav knew how to maximize our time and advised us things we could do in Berlin on our own. He did not try to have us spend... More

We hired Yoav Sapir for a tour of the Jewish sites of Berlin based on TripAdviser reviews and his excellent and informative website. Yoav customized the tour so that we were able to visit the neighborhood where my mother lived in Schonenberg, and also see the main sites of Jewish Berlin. His explanations of the various memorials were topnotch, and... More

On my recent trip to Berlin, which was my first-ever visit in Germany, I spent several very rewarding hours accompanied by Natalie Sapir, who guided me through the historic section of the city that had housed Jewish communal institutions before the Holocaust, and where the history of the community and of its destruction during the Nazi period can be traced....

From identifying a private tour of Jewish Life in Berlin, to scheduling the half day tour and "the" actual tour could not have been easier. Some simple research on Trip Advisor had me immediately calling Yoav. He answered immediately and I explained what I was looking for and since he was booked for the next few days, he suggested that... More

Yoav was already booked, but his wife Natalie, took us on tour. Lovely lady with good English. Met us at our hotel(punctual). She shaped the tour to suit or wants, starting with a very good history of the area around Brandenburg gate and Reichstag. Not overly much walking, but comfortable shoes and a rain jacket and hat were good to... More

Natalie spent 8 wonderful hours with us even arranging a car and driver (Mario) and made our time wonderful. She gave us a very fair redition of World War 2.as well as the Soviet period. I always have been afraid of the Holocaust, yet Natalie's portrayal of the truth, the righteous Gentiles and those who survived, made it a bit... More

We met with Natalie actually instead of Yoav, since he was not available. She took us all over Berlin over the course of two days, and provided so much information and details about various historical points that it was truly incredible. She is a very educated historian, and very knowledgeable about all of Berlin's good and bad past history. We... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
