4 hours private tour to Potsdam and Wansee with a van

By Nirit Ben-Joseph Tours
I am one of the longest working and most experienced jewish Berlin guides. Already in 1987 I came to live in Berlin as to Alumni of the Film & Television department of the Tel Aviv University. 20 years ago I started guiding friends and kept the personal touch while becoming highly professional about the Jewish history and the history of Berlin. Those 20 years so gave the experience to customize your itinerary. I know every corner, street, building, place in the jewish quarters and I have detailed historical and cultural knowledge for all these and many other stories about individuals or their families living in Berlin. My clients are in a hurry, they have enough space to fit 6 clients and they are still quite roomy and comfortable when full. If you wish and the weather permits it, we can also do walking tours

          Excellent Tour
          We booked somewhat of a custom tour. It was outstanding. NIrit is extremely knowledgeable, the Mercedes van was very comfortable and the combination of microphone, speakers and audio visuals made this the best tour we've every been on. Thank you Nirit for your commitment to excellence.

          Jewish Life in Berlin
          Sharon guided us through Berlin Jewish life from the 1600's into early 20th century. She gave us insights into daily life which paralleled Jewish life in NYC. She was personable and patient, answering all questions deftly..WAt the conclusion, we coul easily understand the gradual transitions which had occurred.

          An amazing visit with Nirit.
          My wife and I along with four other family members had the pleasure of touring Berlin with Nirit Ben-Josef. Nirit is very professional and knowledgeable tour guide, who knows Berlin and its history fluently. But the best part was her ability to adhere to our interests and wishes. I highly recommend her for a once in a lifetime visit of Berlin. Zvi

          Great tour learning the history of Germany and Berlin and the Jews in the are. Loved that Nirit used the iPad to show us not just tell us about the history.

          Highlight of our visit to Berlin
          The day we spent with Nirit was without question the highlight of our visit to Berlin. Our tour was a mix of the Jewish tour as well as Berlin both during and after the Berlin wall came down. Nirit's expertise on the history of Berlin was extraordinary. Nirit planned the day to make it more meaningful to us based on our personal connection to the historical events related to the holocaust. It was a pleasure to spend time with her. We are still in awe of her extensive knowledge of the history of Berlin. We highly recommend Nirit to guide you on your visit of Berlin. It will be clear to you why we found the day with her to be the highlight of our visit.

          It was a tour about the Jewish history in Berlin.
          Nirit works for over 20 years as tour guide in Berlin and is probably the most experienced guide in the region. She guides her tours in German English and Hebrew with the deepest knowledge of both general and Jewish history of the city. Nirit's knowledge is overwhelming and she shares it in a very assertive but pleasant way.

          A true treasure of knowledge, experience and wisdom.
          I highly recommend booking a tour with Nirit. Apart from the opportunity to get to know each and every site in Berlin / Brandenburg and actually in many other interesting sites in Germany, you will get a fascinating lesson on history, architecture, Judaism in Germany, world wars, cold war and many other areas you have never thought of. There are guides who recite texts that were written somewhere and at some point. Not Nirit! She conducts research and studies at an academic level, and spices her tours with a lot of humor and good taste. Warmly recommended !.

          Excellent Jewish and Secular private tours
          My wife and I spent 6 nights in Berlin last October. We wanted to do both a “secular” private tour of Berlin and environs (including Potsdam), as well as a Jewish oriented private tour. Another Berlin guide who we had used in the past but was unavailable on our dates highly recommended Nirit Ben-Joseph. We could not have been more pleased with Nirit. She is very personable and knowledgeable, giving us her historian’s perspective. She also used her laptop computer to give us a history lesson on Germany, with maps, from its formation to present day. Nirit drove us around in her own car. We highly recommend Nirit.

          A world class tour guide!
          Nirit’s tours are characterized by their unique tailor made attitude. If you have family roots in Europe, Nirit will make sure to find the available information and if they had presence in Germany or Berlin - she will track down their addresses, businesses, and any registered information. This is not your typical tourism tour - this is an intellectual tour that is often mixed with soft humor even when the historical tension is high. A must for any history fans!

          excellent guid
          We toured with Nirit in a number of tours in Berlin and abroad. We were privileged to meet a fascinating guide, with great knowledge and control of the details that spice up the details of the characters and the places we visited. Nirit adapts the explanations to each group according to age and interests - which makes the tour more interesting and fascinating and definitely leaves a taste of more .... In addition to being an excellent guide, we have been privileged to meet a fascinating, pleasant and lively personality that is smiling and welcoming to everyone Each tour with her makes the day fascinating and interesting and fascinating and varied and certainly arouses your desire to return to the amazing city.

          Visit to Berlin Germany for first hand information about Jews before, during and after Nazi era
          At the end of Oct.2018 my wife and I retained Nirit for two half day tours. We are in our 80's and Nirit tailored the touring with this in mind. Her vehicle is perfect for touring. The manner of presentation of information by using an Ipad while in the vehicle was great so we could see before and after of the sights. At the Holocaust memorial she told us to walk about separately in order to get the full feeling what the memorial is to provide. Wow did it. Nirit's knowledge of the subject matter is the epitome of what you would look for in a guide and presented in a very interesting way. The Berlin tour could have been done in one full day but we elected to do half day tours.

          Fantastic tour guide, excellent tour
          We took Nirit on two different tours of Berlin - in one of them she covered general historic sites of Berlin, and on the other - sites related to the Jewish history of the city. Both days were excellent - Nirit is a fantastic guide, with endless knowledge, passion to educate, and wit and humor that made the horrors of Berlin somewhat more bearable. We all thought she was a superb choice for a guide in Berlin, and I strongly recommend her.
