Tour: #544490, Cold War Private Tour with a private car, driver and tour guide, Berlin, Berlin, Germany    view tour
Date: Dec 28/19

Ben is a charming, fascinating and excellent guide. We highly recommend him. We did a Cold War tour with him for 4 hours and he was interesting throughout and brought an impressive depth of knowledge to all the topics. He really understands the history of Berlin exceptionally well and we enjoyed asking him our never ending questions to which he could answer every one of them.If only we could stay longer we would have booked another tour with him. In short we loved the experience and would do it again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a lovely feedback from such a lovely family! please please let me know whenever you are back n Berlin!

We had two days touring with Ben. He was very passionate about everything he talked about and did an amazing job. I really recommend him to anyone who really wants to learn about Berlin beyond all of the tourist traps.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Christine, it was an absolute pleasure spending two days with your family. I really enjoy the company of visitors who know how to mix and enjoy some history, good food and exploring the city at their own pace. Would love to meet you guys again one day, in Berlin or in L.A! Ben

We had a wonderful informative tour. My son became ill the night before the tour and Ben was so accommodating to my family needs. My husband got his dream meal thanks to Ben. We are from California so cold weather is something we are not used to this was not an issue for Ben. We finished our tour with a famous delicious chocolate store. Ben made German Berlin history interesting to my entire family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this great feedback! I had a great day with you guys... looking forward for our next tour tomorrow!

Tour: #544490, Cold War Private Tour with a private car, driver and tour guide, Berlin, Berlin, Germany    view tour
Date: Oct 4/19

We started our Berlin visit with Ben's Cold War Tour. He is a very nice man who speaks excellent English. He began with a brief survey of German History and then focused on WWII and the Cold War. Even though I had brushed up on the topics, he taught us so much more. It was also nice to quiz him about contemporary life as a Berliner. Our driver was also a Ben, and he allowed us to cover a lot more ground than on an all walking tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Bob for this feedback. I had a great time with you two.. hope to see you again in Berlin soon!

Ben guided us on three amazing tours in Berlin; a half day Berlin city tour, a full day Jewish tour, and a day in Potsdam. The depth of his knowledge and understanding of this fascinating city is remarkable. He explains and teaches the complex history and culture of Berlin in an easy to understand and enjoyable way. He is a pleasure to spend time with; he's flexible and fun. We enjoyed ever minute with Ben, we highly recommend him!

My husband and I took a Jewish Heritage tour inBerlin with Ben F. He was WONDERFUL! Ben was on time, he was very personable, and he was extremely knowledgeable about the many sites and the extensive Jewish history. We were so pleased that we found him as a tour guide and that we took this tour with him. I recommend him very highly.

Ben did a superb job organizing a custom itinerary for us in Berlin. At his suggestion we visited the "Track 17" Memorial for Jews deported from Berlin to the camps. It was a memorable experience that I highly recommend to anyone interested in Third Reich history, enhanced by Ben's detailed knowledge of the three successive memorials erected there (1987, 1998 and 2002), each one showing a progressively more open attitude about this period of history. A truly excellent tour guide experience.

Perfectly paced and pitched guided tour by Ben. The content was enlightening and just right for a family group (adults and children). It was also supplemented with 'local' knowledge, but also a world view. Logistically everything worked perfectly. We had fun and learnt a lot - what more could you ask for? I would definitely use Ben again as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Josephine! It was indeed a pleasure for me to meet you and your wonderful family. until next time!

We met Ben outside of a Starbucks and began our Jewish Heritage tour. He is clearly passionate about Berlin's fascinating history, especially Jewish Berlin stories. We had previously toured Sachsenhausen and done the World War ll tour and there is very little overlap between all three. The next time we return to Berlin (and we will return!), we will call on Ben once again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Debbie! Already looking forward to your next visit in Berlin! Please contact me with any further questions you may have. All the best, Ben

I recently completed a combined Essential Berlin and Jewish History of Berlin Tour with Ben. I cannot speak highly enough of this day. Ben tailored the tour to my interests and showed me a combination of must see sights and things I would not have known about. Ben is extremely knowledgeable and we had interesting conversations through out the day. I will recommend a tour with Ben to all my friends and family who visit Berlin in the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jessica, thank you so much for these kind words. Definitely looking forward to your next visit in Berlin! Ben

This was our second tour with Ben, and it did not disappoint! Once you have spent the day with Ben touring the "usual" tourist highlights of Berlin, I highly recommend taking this tour. It's a fun look at the eclectic culture that has developed in such a vibrant city.
