Yaron is a well experienced, warm and personable guide. It truly was a "Great Day in Berlin" despite some inclement weather. He mastered dividing the tour between historic Berlin, Berlin in WW2 and Jewish Berlin. Essentially, he covered all the sites, answered all our questions, and was flexible in his approach. It is my pleasure to recommend Yaron when visiting Berlin.
Our tour with Yarom was all that we were expecting and more. I wanted a tour that gave mu family of 7 - various _ ages a comprehensive idea of Berlin Yaron was punctual, knowledgeable and fun. Even though it was walking and we have two 9 year olds the time went by quickly as he told us stories and made the city come to life. I totally recommend him.

William SternheimUnited States
Yaron was an informative and excellent guide for our day in Berlin. He was flexible and met us at a train station, and we hit many of the highlights of Berlin in a very short time window. As a non-native of Berlin, he had an interesting slant on the present history and local politics of both Berlin and Germany. We were able to hit some of the Jewish history sites that we had expressed interested in.

My wife and I had a fabulous day with Yaron on our tour through Berlin! Yaron was very knowledgeable about the history and the culture of the city. He took us to all the most popular tourist attractions and others that were hidden gems. We had such a great time laughing and telling stories all day, it was as if we were hanging out with a longtime friend. Yaron even took us to a fantastic Indian restaurant in his neighborhood slightly outside the main city as well as a local farmers market. Amazing!

Jeffrey LevyUnited States
Yaron is a wonderful tour guide. He accommodated all of our requests and made our experience in Berlin unique. The driver and car that he provided were top notch.

Yaron is a wonderful guide! We could not be more pleased with the tour. We saw everything on his itinerary and more. He is professional, well versed in both historical and current Berlin, and has a delightful personality. You cannot go wrong booking a tour with him! In fact, we were so happy with the tour, we are booked with him to see the east side on a food and beer tour tomorrow evening!
Maryna TullyUnited States
Yaron arrived punctually at our meeting point and spent more than the contracted 2 hours with my husband and me. He was well-informed, entertaining, funny, enthusiastic, and sensitive. We scheduled the tour at the beginning of our 1-week stay in Berlin, and Yaron was able to give us a helpful overview of the city. He introduced us to the public transit system, and walked us through many important historical sites. Our attention never wavered as he combined factual information with interesting anecdotes.
Mitchell HoginsUnited States
Yaron has my unconditional endorsement as a tour guide. He provided an outstanding personal tour of Berlin for our party of four. He was prompt, had a great attitude and was very knowledgeable about Berlin. His enthusiasm was contagious and added to the overall experience.

What a perfect introduction to Berlin. We're traveling with two kids ages 10 and 14 and Yaron was the perfect tour guide for our family. He was knowledgeable, energetic, kind and tailored the tour to our needs! I was particularly grateful because I contacted him in the morning and wanted to tour later the same day. He was super responsive and more than happy to accommodate us. He also gave us suggestions what we should do after the tour. We had a fabulous fabulous day and I highly recommend him.

This was really a very good tour. We only had 4-5 hours for a quick tour of Berlin highlights and we got an insightful, knowledgeable and interesting look at the major sites as well as a look at some off the beaten path parts of this great city. Yaron was personable and competent, making everyone feel comfortable and excited about the tour. He organized the tour very well. We were a group of seven and he had a comfortable van and great driver coordinate our drop offs and pick ups efficiently.

Yaron was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and put together an extremely interesting itinerary for us. The tour included both the traditional points of interest as well as the non-conventional sites not normally included in the standard tour agenda. He also highlighted the rich historical significance of Berlin which included events in the recent past as well as highlights from further into Germany and Prussia's past. He had a deep understanding of what Berlin has to offer which goes bey
Yaron was there on time and went beyond the 10 original landmarks included. He was able to customize the tour based on my knowledge and answer questions about Germany history and culture. After the tour was over, he actually sent me links to various other places for me to see, including a comedy show that I would like. I would definitely recommend him if you want a one on one tour, rather than the boring group tours.
Yaron was very entertaining, knowledgable and we all thoroughly enjoyed his company for the few hours we spent together... It was really memorable and even though I'm born here I've learned quite a few things I didn't know from him! I could imagine some of these tours would be very dry, but there were hardly any dull moments the whole time. Highly recommended!
Cheryl CanningUnited States
We had a great day with Yaron. It was jam packed with so many highlights of Berlin and he shared so much history and interesting facts. We learned so much all while having a great time. Highly recommend spending the day with Yaron.
Yaron is an excellent guide bringing Berlin's history alive. When we asked our teenagers what was best in Berlin they said " the guide". During the day we went through hundreds of years of Berlin's history and in the evening we visited modern Berlin's night live scenes. Highly recommended!
Mark MelumUnited States
Yaron is very talented and an awesome guide. He is very knowledgeable about the city and shows great passion for what he does for a living.

Yaron was a first class guide and we all really enjoyed our tour. He arrived early and was telling us interesting facts right from the start. He is very knowledgable about the history of this fascinating city, and has a great sense of humour. It was cold, so we kept moving and we had great stops for food and drink - Gluhwein with Cointreau in the Christmas market and handmade chocolates were delicious. We saw so much, and laughed a lot it really was a great day in Berlin. We highly recommend!

They fun and inspirational tour of the "alternate "part to Berlin... revealing a very youthful energetic and exciting area. I love the large segment of the Berlin wall decorated with inspirational drawings". The guide took us as part of the tour to experience tasty German beers, Black ice cream and curry sausages. This is a fresh look at "new" Berlin with youth oriented perspective. Thank you Yaron!

What a great way to learn about this beartiful, historic city -- walking with an insider who is personable, knowledgeable and adds great stories to make it all memorable.

Thanks for being part of our 50th anniversary trip.
Pamela TudorUnited States
We could not have had a more wonderful experience in Berlin. The day lived up to our expectations many times over, thanks to Yaron. Our time was limited and we wanted to see as much as we could. Yaron delivered! Plus, he included a quick stop for his favorite sausage and German beer in Berlin's trendy area. Plus, plus, I left my ipad in his car and with no hesitation he sent by Fed Ex to catch up with me on our travels. Yaron is a true professional. We feel fortunate that we had him for the day.

Yaron was an incredibly insightful and dedicated guide. He combined a thorough historical review with humor, street savvy, and overall charm. He met our every need along the way, and added the bonus of several impromptu moments that made the tour all the more special.

Mary ReisigUnited States
Best tour I've experienced and I have been on several. I am a travel agent and travel extensively. The car and driver in addition the such a wonderful guide is a plus. We were able to get right to the top sites, get out and walk around, then right back to the car and onto the next site. Yaron was the perfect combination of friendly, informative and very interesting. His knowledge and passion for the sites and history was truly remarkable. He wasn't just spouting information, but told history.
