“The Jewish side of Berlin that is not in any guide book”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

We had a terrific half day walk with Jeremy. We were interest in the Jewish history of Berlin. Jeremy is a wealth of knowledge and gave us more insights and showed us the most amazing sculptures and Jewish life that is not in any guide book anywhere. We went to sites that we had not read about and saw things that we probably would have never noticed if he had not stop to show us and explain in detail all the things we were seeing and feeling. Berlin's Jewish history is just as much about the past as it is in the present and we walked away with a new perspective on modern Germany.
Great day!

“Jeremy Minsberg is the Perfect Enhancement to a Berlin Vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2011

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending several hours with Jeremy yesterday and not only learned more, but understood more, about Berlin's fascinating history than we would have otherwise. If he wasn't The Berliln Expert, he could definitely be a CNN Berlin correspondent! Anyone can recite the facts, but Jeremy tells stories that are engaging and really make you appreciate the the dichotomy of Berlin's history. Throughout our tour I kept thinking about a wonderful exhibition that the Metropolitan Museum of Art presented on German Expressionist painting. It was called "Glitter and Doom"--and Jeremy really brought that to life. The next time we are here I am going to plan ahead and reserve time with him for a couple of days. If you love history and want to see it come to life, then I highly recommend setting up time with him. He is very passionate about what he does and it shows--don't leave Berlin wthout spending at least 3-4 hours with him!

“The best Berlin tour guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2011

Jeremy Minsberg was our Tour Guide in our recent trip to Berlin.
He is extremely knowledgeable, charismatic and loves his job. He showed us a side of Berlin that we would have never been able to see or experience without him.

“Great knowledge, disposition, attitude and patience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2011

We travelled with our 2 toddlers and wanted to know Berlin through the best experience... meaning, walking it. We had to look for a private tour knowing our pace would be slower. We found Jeremy, and it was great and worthy! Our kids had fun, we enjoyed the tour and the city, we learnt very interesting facts and learnt about the city and history. We walked for 5 hrs and got the chance to see several high sights of the city, take pictures, see maps, photos, and he said that soon he will have videos to show!!! :-) Totally recommended!!!!

“HIstory come to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2011

Jeremy makes WWII and the Cold War and all of Berlin come alive. His knowledge and easy manner made the 6 hour tour fly by. Wish we could have spent more time. When we get back to Berlin we will do it again.
