excellent travel guide. Very polite and helpful. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and happy times to you, Barbara
We are international family living in Frankfurt and had visitors from Australia only for a day. We wanted them to quickly get an overview about what Frankfurt is about. Barbara fully understood our special need and was very competent, friendly and fun to do the tour with. She is very knowledgeable and showed us themes about Frankfurt that we hadn't seen or knew about. Very very recommendable. We had fun and learned a lot and it wasn't stress at all. We will book her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kati, Thank you for the compliments. The pleasure was mine too, you were so interested and interesting. We will meet again in Frankfurt. I am wishing you a wonderful summer and a lovely time - Barbara
Alyssa MorelliUnited States
Barbara was a wonderful guide. We saw so much of Frankfurt in a short time, you can't see the city on your own the same way. Towards the end of our tour we asked if we could see something jewish from WW2 and quickly Barbara took us to a cemetery. She has to go inside a building and get a key to enter the walled off cemetery & we were blown away. We stopped for lunch, ice-cream , coffee etc along the way to local places. Frankfurt was a 1 day stop but after touring with Barbara I will now return.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alyssa, Thank you for your kind words. The tour was my pleasure too and I learnt a lot about triathlon. Keep on discovering the world and especially Frankfurt - it really has a lot to offer. Cheers , Barbara
Janice BurnsUnited States
We just had an excellent experience in Mainz, thanks to our guide Barbara. We found Barbara to be very knowledgeable about the city, history, culture and life there., including the local cuisine. We very able to visit the Friday market, and Barbara pointed out the highlights of the market, including the fresh white asparagus. She explained the history of the monastery and showed us the Chagall windows. Her English was excellent. She went above the requirements and helped us with several tasks.

Barbara was a great tour guide for us. She met us on our hotel, showed us to our locations on the public transport system, and was extremely informative throughout our tour. Her English was crazy good and her knowledge was extensive. She was very patient if we wanted to stop for pictures, water, restrooms etc. We found the Jewish history tour very interesting. And know that it was even better since Barbara was our tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kirk, Thank you so much for your words. Keep on discovering and travelling - see you, Barbara
Cynthia StewartUnited States
Barbara did a fabulous job. She met us at the designated area on time(and we were on time too). We took public transit that we had agreed with so we could stretch our legs. She was personable, fun and candid. A great way to breakaway from the airport when you have a long layover! Would book again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cyndi for the compliments - I hope you are enjoying the rest of your European summer as well as your time in Frankfurt *-*. Next tiem you have to stay a little longer - cheers, Barbara
A great tour with Barbara - we really enjoyed the contrasts of Frankfurt, the mix between new and old, and the refurbishments in this cosmopolitan city. Barbara was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and very sympathetic to two weary travellers. This tour was a delightful way to fill in our half day between flights and we would thoroughly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A big thank you! Barbara
Barbara was kind enough to meet us at the airport (and wait for us because the line for passport control were never ending this morning!). She is very knowledgeable, witty and entertaining ... a pleasure to be with. I am so grateful to Barbara because she geared the tour in order to accommodate my husband less cultural requests, i.e. best bratwurst at the market in Frankfurt and best espresso in town. Grazie ancora!!!

Outstanding tour with Barbara during our layover this summer. It was tailor-made to our interests and a fantastic introduction to Frankfurt. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joseph and see you next year in Frankfurt again! Barbara
Abraham WachsmanUnited States
We did not see Heidelberg because of rail constraints and went to Mainz instead. Mainz was unexpectedly delightful, from the whimsical fountain glorifying the four main pillars of the city's community (including the fool) to the Gutenberg Museum. While we did not visit the latter, we did visit a printing shop associated with it and had an encounter with some of their staff who needed an impromptu Hebrew and biblical translation which I was glad to provide. Barbara was great - knowledgeable and thorough
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aby, this was a real challenge and you see how much the Jewish knowledge is needed in Germany. What a wonderful day - he pleasure was mine, Barbara
Abraham WachsmanUnited States
I was born in Frankfurt although I left it at the age of 3. Barbara was an excellent source and guide for this wonderful city, taking an interest in our background and preferences so as to tailor the tour to our specific needs. The level of detail was wonderful, allowing me to visit the street where I lived, the hospital where I was born and areas of particular interest to me. Barbara is flexible and accommodating to any reasonable preference and I would gladly use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aby, indeed we spent a great time together and you and your wife were so inspiring. Hope to see you soon in Frankfurt again, kind regards, Barbara
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Axel!
Roberta CohenUnited States
Barbara was a terrific guide. She also was a great representative for the city of Frankfurt--promoting it as a great place to visit and to live. We could not have asked for a better day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roberta, Thank you for your compliments. You were such an intereting and interested family. I will never forget the story with the Grandpa and the magazine - that made my day. I am wishing you and your family all my best, Barbara
Bob FindlayUnited States
Barbara met me at the airport at our scheduled time. After I stored my backpack, we were off to the subway and into the city. Barbara was pleasant friendly and very knowledgeable about her city. It was obvious she enjoys guiding people around the various highlights that Frankfurt has to offer. I had never visited here before, and was only here for a layover, so her insight was a real treat. Highly recommend her to anyone flying through Frankfurt with time to spare on a layover.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bob, Thank you for your pleasant feedback. I also enyoyed it very much to show you my favourite spots in Frankfurt including the revamped Jewish Museum. By now you must be in South Africa and I hope you are having an unforgettable time there. Lovely regards - Barbara
Barbara was a great guide. She arrived promptly at the place we agreed to meet . Her knowledge was very good and she made the tour very interesting for us . She also went out of her way to take us to specific sites we had requested which we really appreciated . She was very friendly and overall it was a great way to gain insight into the history of Frankfurts Jewish life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eintracht family, thank you for the compliments. Merci!! That was a real adventure for me too, this off the beaten track adventure in the end through the woods. I am wishing you a wonderful time in Johannisburg, cheers Barbara
Would not hesitate to recommend Barbara as a guide. She accommodated us when the group grew from 3 to 5. The day of our tour saw heavy rain so she suggested we start at the Jewish museum which I had asked to be included. I highly recommend that you include this on any tour you may do with her. We learned so much more than we would have had we just wandered around on our own. She was a great host even going out of her way to take us back to the station to make sure we caught the right train.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rose, Thank you for your comment. You were a wonderful ladies group too, so full of energy and interest. See you next time again in Frankfurt, cheers and say a warm hearted Hello to all the ladies, Barbara
Our customers are very pleased with the guided tour in Heidelberg! Thank you very much Barbara for a perfect day!

Kim ConrowUnited States
Barbara was a super guide! She met me at the airport and helped me get my carry-on luggage stored there for an unencumbered tour. We saw markets, gardens and historical sites. She was an excellent helper when I felt a little ill and helped me in many ways. I highly recommend her and the company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kim, I see you are back home and doing well. I hope you enjoyed your happy making African trail. Lovely regards - Barbara

Very knowledgeable and thorough
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much David!!
Rick DodsonUnited States
We initially scheduled Barbara for a 4 hour tour in Frankfurt. At the last minute, we asked her to go to Mainz instead. She was exceptionally accommodating & flexible. Since we were already in a local hotel, she met us there and guided us to Mainz. Barbara was very knowledgeable about Mainz and showed us everything we wanted to see. I assume she would be equally knowledgeable Excellent English skills. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a local tailored tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ricky! You and Jerry are wonderful and very special people and I enjoyed the tour as well. Real preofessional vacationers. I hope you had a lovely stay in France too - and keep on rocking - kind regards - Barbara
Rosalie MartinUnited States
Barbara R. was waiting for my Mother and I, with open arms, at the Offenbach Sheraton at the arranged time! My 85-year-old mother wanted to tour Offenbach, where she was born and raised until the age of 18. As you can imagine, the city has changed dramatically. When I hired Barbara, I told her I was not exactly sure what my Mother would want to see and to be prepared for anything! Using old photographs, Barbara took us to every place my Mother wanted to see and then some!! She did a fantastic job!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosalie, You and your Mom were so special and so full of life and energy and your Mom was so excited to see her "Offenbach" again and her memory worked so well as if the things happened yesterday. Warm regards to you and Trudy!! Barbara

Diane BrzozowskiUnited States
Barbara was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable, and a great navigator. We talked like old friends from the first moment. She guided me to many great sights based on my interests, then took me to a wonderful small cafe in one of the neighborhoods away from the tourist areas for an amazing coffee and breakfast. She accomodated me with only two days notice and fit it all in under three hours, getting me back in time for my connecting flight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Diane, Thank you for your compliments. I hope you had an relaxing vacation and enjoyed the hand made chocolate - you are a real gourmet - all my best to you , Barbara
Donna KempnerUnited States
We only had a day, and found that Barbara's museum education work dovetailed nicely with our interest in the Jewish History of Frankfurt, as well as our desire to get a feel for the city and it's neighborhoods. Not only was she knowledgeable and personable, she also made sure that we got on the appropriate transportation to the Hahn Airport for our next morning departure. Barbara made our brief time in Frankfurt memorable and we recommend her without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna and Juan, I really enjoyed your company and your energy while discovering the city and its hidden spots. There is still so much to see and to do even outside Frankfurt. Thank you so much for your compliments - warm regards, Barbara

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steven for the compliment - I am sure now you are still "relishing" the safari moments - stay healthy and happy, Barbara
I had a wonderful time with Barbara during my layover in Frankfurt. It really felt very much like reconnecting with an old friend & having a leisurely day in the old town in Frankfurt to have a tour with Barbara. She knew the best local restaurants and cafés, & even took me past a my namesake restaurant. Although I had no particular aim in mind for the tour, Barbara intuited the perfect itinerary for us. I would highly recommend her for her deep knowledge of the sights and history & her pleasant company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alison, Thank you for the compliments and your joy of life even though you were having a jet lag! Wonder woman Alison! It really was my pleasure to show you the city and the secret places. All my best to you, Barbara

Candace BlazUnited States
Barbara made our trip to Frankfurt stellar in every way. Before and after our tour, she remained in contact. Jewish Frankfurt history is her specialty and there is much to see. During an extreme heatwave, she was flexible, fit and professional. You can contact her to provide many local tips as to lodging, restaurants, shopping, and other sites before you arrive to take any customized tour. I have a new appreciation of Frankfurt thanks to Barbara. She's more than a guide...now a friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Candace, Thank you for your wonderful feedback. Even though it was extremely hot in Frankfurt in those days you kept the shape. You were so interested and interesting in seeing all the places , so it was my pure pleasue having you as guests and now friends in Frankfurt.
Amy K.United States
Barbara was very professional, knowledgeable, diligent, and warm. She took us on a trip back in time to see our grandparents village- and did the research and made the connections that made the trip to Flieden, Germany unforgettable. I could not recommend her more highly. She was responsive, flexible, and charming to be with. It was a great stopover day in Frankfurt enroute to our vacation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, Thank you for your compliments. I also enjoyed the tour very much, very emotional and unique! Cheers, Barbara

Stephanie MahonUnited States

Miriam Marie ArielUnited States
I planned to visit towns near Frankfurt that my father & his family came from, but I didn't want to drive. Barbara was my guide and provided an experienced driver for my 8 hr. adventure. In advance I asked if she could help find out information about relatives whose names I had given her. Barbara did an OUTSTANDING and AMAZING job of locating information & contacts. She loves her city & she knows it very well. Her interest in the history of Jews in the area is an asset if, like me, that's your heritage.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie! It was my pleasure to find out and discover and make you feel good about your ancestors. It was indeed a very interestimg and delightful tour. It is all about Menschen!!! Lovely regards, Barbara
