Arja is a delight. There are many young and enthusiastic tour guides in Berlin, but Arja's scholarly engagement distinguishes her from her peers. Her nuanced analysis and use of archival images on her IPad to connect with historical locations was totally engaging. Arja's candid discussion of the generational rift that characterized her own family's engagement with the Nazi years was informed by compassion, humor and moral clarity. Arja is a gifted communicator and teacher.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Chris, it was great touring with you and doing it for a change in German - and it was quite entertaining how awkward it can be sometimes mentioning Nazis in German on a train surrounded by Germans :-) Hopefully see you again in Berlin.

Arja was a delight. She tailored to tour to include more emphasis related to sites we had already visited elsewhere, such as Wolf's Lair. Her collection of historical photos were matched to the locations we were standing to give a better understanding of the changes WWII and the communists brought. We four travelers give enthusiastic four thumbs up for Arja and the Third Reich tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Walter, it was a delight touring with you and the ladies.
