We spent 6 hours with Yoav on a rainy winter day in Berlin and time flew by. He is knowledgeable and responsive.....he knows the back story behind the back story and shares with intelligence and humor. Highly recommend.
Yoav is just what a professional tour guide should be: intelligent, articulate, knowledgeable, insightful, patient, encyclopedic, entertaining, adroit in his ability to illuminate the Jewish history of Berlin and if that isn't enough, possess a pleasant charm while doing so.

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.
Noav (Sapir) has a great website, berlinjewish com There is lots of very useful, practical information on the site. He is also very responsive and you can ask him whatever questions you may have.
