We contacted Jeremy of Berlin Experts because of the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Since he was going to be on holiday himself, Jeremy referred us to David Meeres. David is a Brit completing his PhD in Berlin ; he had lived in the city since 2008. He was a terrific tour guide. So knowledgeable! We communicated back and forth on email before we arrived to tailor the tour so that it would be interesting and engaging for all of us.

David met us outside of our hotel around 9:30 a.m. and we spent the next 4 hours walking Berlin together. We saw the Berlin Wall, Topography of Terror (an excellent exhibit chronicling the rise and fall of Nazi Germany), the Bradenburg Gate, The Tiergarten, the Reichstag, the site of Hilter's bunker, Potsdamer Platz and so much more. He was a wealth of historical information and brought with him a binder with additional pictures to further illustrate the stories he told. Of particular interest were Hilters' plans for Germania,his proposed capital of the world once he achived complete domination of the globe. We grabbed a quick lunch at Postdamer Platz and could really get a feel for the buzz of the city.

The next day we went to Sachsenhausen with David as our guide. Once again , he was a wealth of information.

Spending two days with David was worth every cent. It was so nice to be a small group of 4. We felt that we could ask any question and we learned so much more than we ever would have in a large tour group or even on our own with a reputable tour book. We left the city with a much better sense of Berlin past and present and are keen to return to such a vibrant city.

We had spent three days in Berlin and thought we had covered all the important attractions, as we had taken many city tours. We met Jeremy Minsberg, our travel guide in Berlin on day four. We quickly came to realize how much we had missed. Jeremy showed us objects, streets, buildings only known to a true inhabitant of the city. He told stories of interest, and showed us video clips on his I-Pad which added to a better appreciation of the historical significances. Furthermore, our discussions enlightened us on life in Berlin currently, the new construction efforts, and the new culture. Our trip to Berlin would definitely have been lacking if it weren't for Jeremy's tour.

Very simple comment! Personal touch and local knowledge makes this company a great choice. No need to go with the gig groups if you can join one of these smaller nicer trips

Jeremy was the highlight of our trip to Berlin. He is a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm and yet presents a realistic picture of the cost of the holocaust to the people and the city. We would recommend him to anyone. He maximizes the use of time, has great visuals to talk about entire history. Hs fees are reasonable compared to others.

Jeremy was a wonderful guide for the 10 of us. It made the 3 hour trip back and forth from our ship well worth it. He was knowledgeable and passionate about "his" Berlin. I came away from the tour with knowledge and an insight about an American living in Berlin that I do not believe I would otherwise have from any other source. He was a good about getting us where we needed to be and in listening to our questins and answering them. Most of all we saw how people live in Berlin as well as the sights and came away with a better understanding of what it meant to live in Berlin in the past as well as in the present. He was as well patient and charming. We had a great time and I highly recommend him. Sue R (September 2012).
