“Private tour guide in Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Jeremy Minsberg (theberlinexpert.com) was by far the best guide we have ever experienced - incredibly knowledgeable, easy to be with, and able to customize our tour to make the most of our time in Berlin. The tour was fast-moving and at the end of it we were amazed by how much we had learned and seen. We recommend him unequivocably!

“Jeremy was out of the country...We loved Heather!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Four of us visited Berlin in late September and Jeremy was not available. He recommended Heather Ellis...and she was WONDERFUL. She's an American (graduate of Penn State with an advanced degree from BROWN University). She was a WEALTH of knowledge and has a true love for the city of Berlin. She was prompt, professional and passionate about all the information she shared. Best of all...she's now a FRIEND. If Heather is your guide....you won't be disappointed. She's a treasure-trove of information about Berlin and its history...and she's a lovely person.

“Two terrific sightseeing days with 2 teenagers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We contacted Jeremy of Berlin Experts because of the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Since he was going to be on holiday himself, Jeremy referred us to David Meeres. David is a Brit completing his PhD in Berlin ; he had lived in the city since 2008. He was a terrific tour guide. So knowledgeable! We communicated back and forth on email before we arrived to tailor the tour so that it would be interesting and engaging for all of us.

David met us outside of our hotel around 9:30 a.m. and we spent the next 4 hours walking Berlin together. We saw the Berlin Wall, Topography of Terror (an excellent exhibit chronicling the rise and fall of Nazi Germany), the Bradenburg Gate, The Tiergarten, the Reichstag, the site of Hilter's bunker, Potsdamer Platz and so much more. He was a wealth of historical information and brought with him a binder with additional pictures to further illustrate the stories he told. Of particular interest were Hilters' plans for Germania,his proposed capital of the world once he achived complete domination of the globe. We grabbed a quick lunch at Postdamer Platz and could really get a feel for the buzz of the city.

The next day we went to Sachsenhausen with David as our guide. Once again , he was a wealth of information.

Spending two days with David was worth every cent. It was so nice to be a small group of 4. We felt that we could ask any question and we learned so much more than we ever would have in a large tour group or even on our own with a reputable tour book. We left the city with a much better sense of Berlin past and present and are keen to return to such a vibrant city.

“Mother and daughter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We had spent three days in Berlin and thought we had covered all the important attractions, as we had taken many city tours. We met Jeremy Minsberg, our travel guide in Berlin on day four. We quickly came to realize how much we had missed. Jeremy showed us objects, streets, buildings only known to a true inhabitant of the city. He told stories of interest, and showed us video clips on his I-Pad which added to a better appreciation of the historical significances. Furthermore, our discussions enlightened us on life in Berlin currently, the new construction efforts, and the new culture. Our trip to Berlin would definitely have been lacking if it weren't for Jeremy's tour.

“Personal and great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Very simple comment! Personal touch and local knowledge makes this company a great choice. No need to go with the gig groups if you can join one of these smaller nicer trips
