Sharon EmekUnited States
This tour of post WWII, the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain was our second day with Jessica. Our granddaughters gained an important perspective about freedom and why it should not be taken for granted. We were sad to part with Jessica at the end of the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sharon. I think when you actually get to touch and see the wall in person, you can start to understand. The Berlin wall memorial is a very important place and I am glad I got to show that to you. Have a lovely summer.
Sharon EmekUnited States
Jessica was a fabulous guide. She has a thorough knowledge of European Jewish history and the Jews of Germany. She patiently explained each site we visited so that our two granddaughters who are 13 nd 15 could understand what lead up to WWII and to the rise of anitsemitism. We all loved having her as our guide. We travel a great deal and have had many guides; we know when we have a guide that is special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sharon, thank you for your lovely review. I had such a great time with you and your granddaughters are super sweet. I wish you all the best! Jessica
Rene C.United States
Wow! Jessica was a fantastic guide. She knew Berlin thoroughly and really knew how to bring her knowledge into the flow of the walking tour to make it a terrific experience. She was able to quickly get a sense of what level of information I was looking for and shaped the conversation accordingly. She is very kind and a delight to talk with. I highly recommend Jessica!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rene, what a wonderful review! You were very engaging from the get go and a delight to tour with. All the best, Jessica
Jefferson JohnstonUnited States
Jessica was a great guide. It is a difficult subject matter to give a tour about especially when there are younger kids (11 and 12) in the group but she handled everything really well. The tour was even better then I thought it would be. I highly reccomend Jessica as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeff, it is always hard giving tours at Sachsenhausen - especially to a younger audience but it is so important and your kids handled it really well. Please pass on my regards to everyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :D
Herb WenderUnited States
Jessica was terrific. She brought us to places that we didn't know existed. For example, the railroad track from which Jews were sent off to concentration camps with notations alongside the tracks of the date, number of people deported and the camp to which they were sent. There were many more unexpected but very interesting memorial sites. My wife, my son and I all highly recommend Jessica for any tour of the "Jewish sites" of Berlin.

Jessica was an outstanding guide. We got to see and understand everything we had hoped for and more. We highly recommend her.
