We recently had a morning tour with Yoav which was excellent. He has a deep understanding of history and brings Berlin to life in a way that one never could by just looking in a guide book. Highly recommended.

Yoav spent 5 hours with us teaching us about the history of Jewish life in Berlin, and showing us wonderful sights. We'd already spent more than a week in Berlin, but still his knowledge and thoughtfulness enhanced our experience of the city and its history in an indispensable way. He brought feeling and nuance to our understanding, and we thoroughly... More

We had the privilege of spending one day with Yoav (East Berlin) and one day with Natalie (West Berlin). Both are extremely knowledgable and great teachers. With them we were able to see sights we had never known about. We learned a great deal about the Jewish community that had been here in Berlin and in Germany. The tours were... More

Yoav was a wonderful guide. Were made all of our arrangements by email and everything done was as planned. We were picked up at our ship's dock(Celebrity Eclipse) and driven to Berlin by private car where we met Yoav. He gave us a terrific tour with his personal insights. I would highly recommend him for your guide in Berlin.

Out 7 hour Jewish tour of East and West Berlin began with our meeting Yoav in the lobby of the hotel. He immediately impressed us with his depth of knowledge of Jewish history, especially World War II. The first 4 hours was a walking tour of the Jewish district. Yoav took us to places that are well known for tourist... More

My wife, our two children (age 29 and 26), and I were prepared to be affected emotionally by our tour. By its very nature, a walking tour of Jewish Berlin is full of encounters with National Socialism, persecution, and the Holocaust. But, by the time we finished our six hours with Natalie, we came to understand that over the past... 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.
