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.

Natalie spent two days with us showing us around Berlin, focusing on Jewish history. She was wonderful -- incredibly knowledgeable, warm and friendly. She really brought to life the poignant, rich history of Jewish Berlin. Highly recommend her!

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

This was an excellent and memorable tour. We toured for four hours and visited many landmarks, including the location of the original synagogue in the city and a brush factory in which Jewish workers had been employed to protect them from the Holocaust. While there, we were honored to meet a Holocaust survivor who had worked in the factory, as... More

We found Yoav via TripAdvisor and it was an excellent recommendation. We communicated by email months before our arrival. He offered suggestions for hotels prior to our arrival and also helped focus us on what he thought appealed to our trip. Yoav arrived at the hotel, gave us an overview of the city with a map, and set out with... More

We booked Yoav for two days. Day one was from 9-5, and day two was a half a day. We could not have asked for a better tour! Yoav spent time trying to determine our level of knowledge and interest in Jewish Berlin. He then proceeded to provide a college level seminar on Jewish Berlin. He checked with us intermittently...

The history of 20th Century Berlin is here -- unvarnished and in your face. The Holocaust(s). Hitler. The Berlin Wall. The Cold War. Natalie helped unpacked it for us. Lots to digest, she took us through it piece by piece and place by place from the Brandenburg Gate past the Reichstag and into the old Jewish Quarter. She brings passion... More

If you are spending time in Berlin and really want to take something away from your visit, you must tour with Yoav. We were only in Berlin for 1 day. (We arrived via cruise ship in Rostock, Germany). Yoav (and Natalie) were extremely helpful via email ahead of our trip. Arranged for a private van service to transport us. Our... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
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.
