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!

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.

Thank you Yaron, We just returned back to USA yesterday (July 22 2018) late night. I did not have WiFi and that is why I did not answer all this time. We enjoyed your guided tour. We all rated number 1 comparing with other tour guides we had in other countries. It is pleasure for me to write good review and recommend you to my friends and family. Have a Nice week.

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.

From the moment we met Yaron at our train station location we knew we would have a very enthusiastic tour with him. He was very energetic and took us to as many highlights of Berlin as we could manage in the short time that we had to see Berlin. It was great to have a driver as well to get us to various areas of Berlin. Thank you Yaron for such a wonderful day in Berlin!

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 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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
