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

One of the best guides we've had. He contacted us in advance to be sure of our specific request and abilities we had a great tour. He has great knowledge of history and presents it in a relevant way. Ben is extremely personable and warm. We would recommend him highly!

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

Ben is excellent company and the 3 hours I spent with him flew by - despite the cold! His 'Essential Berlin' tour provided the perfect introduction to this fascinating city - its past and its present. I would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Sally. It was indeed a nice day out despite the cold! Looking forward to your next visit to Berlin - there's many more to see and discover... Ben

Ben was able to engage my not so easily engaged teenage son and that for almost 4 hours, very early in the morning in almost freezing temperatures. Great guide! Highly recommended!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Heli. Looking forward meeting the both of you again next year! 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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you once again dear Matt for choosing to tour with me twice during your visit to Berlin.
