Jessica Cartwright is one of the most sought after guides in the city - not only because of her in depth knowledge of past and present Berlin but also for the phenomenal way in which she conveys its history with spirit, suspense and compassion. To fully appreciate the Berlin of today, Jessica navigates you through the many layers of its diverse past. From its swampy origins to the rise of the Prussian army, through Hitler’s megalomaniacal vision for a new world capital to the communist totalitarian regime that led to division and the construction of the Berlin wall.Come and experience Berlin through her stories of the city and its people as they stood at the gates of history with her “multimedia” props and passionate recounting of some of history’s most pivotal moments. « less

We also only had a short time in Berlin and organised Jess to take us to Succenhaussen (concentration camp), just outside Berlin. Not only was Jess on time and organised, she had pre purchased our train ticket to save time and had brochures for us. We talked all the way on the train, Jess' wealth of knowledge is fantastic.

Because I have been lucky enough to travel a great deal of the world I don't often feel the need to use a tour guide. In fact most times I have it's been less than an extraordinary experience. In 2013 I visited Berlin and upon the recommendation of a friend decided to use one for this visit. The person recommended... More

My family recently returned from a long weekend in Berlin. It was our first time visiting the German capital city. We connected with Jessica Cartwright for a 4 hour introductory walking tour of the city on our first day. Our tour was conducted in English. Our kids are 13, 10 and 6. Jessica did a wonderful job of keeping all-ages... More

We laughed, we learned and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with Jessica. Instead of a stodgy, dreary trek through historical dates and data - Jessica provided us with an overview of the city, the people and its history with anecodotes, pictures and interesting insights. A very refreshing tour guide - highly recommend you choose a trip with her. J& M... More

If I could give Jessica 6 stars, I would. She took my 10 yr old son and me on a tour of Berlin this June. She was wonderful company, extremely well-informed, took us to many of the key sights (and recommended many others) and also found many unexpected delights. She also did a fantastic job of keeping my son interested... More

Our family travel agent booked Jessica for us when we visited Berlin during a Baltic cruise. We had a very limited time in Berlin, but figured a quick trip was better than not getting there at all. After our day with Jessica we were even more pleased with our decision. Her ability to get us through the major sites quickly... More

Without hesitation, I join the previous 32 reviewers to give Jessica an "Excellent" rating. We have had many good guides during our travels, and Jessica is one of the best. She took the initiative to exchange several emails with me before we arrived to make sure that we would spend the time in Berlin seeing the sights that would be... More

This is the third year I have booked Jessica Cartwright to be our Berlin tour guide for a school group of British A Level students. Quite simply she is the best tour guide you could book for a variety of reasons: Firstly her enthusiasm and infectious personality, her passion for history is evident from the beginning, she is an excellent...

Jessica was fantastic! She was friendly, enthusiastic, and super knowledgable. She was able to answer all our questions about the history of Berlin, as well as suggest cool places to see and visit around the city. She brought her iPad with her to show us old historical photos of the sites we were looking at. It was really amazing to... More

Jessica led the small school group I was chaperoning for the 2 days we spent in Berlin. Before we arrived, she emailed me regarding my group's interests and preferences. She tailored our time to that. Jessica's knowledge, passion and versatility kept everyone engaged and interested from me (my 3rd time in the city with a passionate interest in East Germany... More
