Our family scheduled a six-hour tour of Berlin with Bernhard Schlegelmilch of Humboldt Tours. He was terrific. Incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the World Wars and Cold War, buildings, city planning, etc. He's a very personable man, raised in East Germany, so a lot of personal stories as well. His drive, Wolfgang, was amazingly efficient. Berlin is a sprawling city and it was great to have this tour.

If you're looking for a great guide for Jewish and/or general historical tours of Berlin we highly recommend Yoav Sapir as well as his girlfriend Natalie Patzek. Both are interesting, full of knowledge, dynamic and delightful. See more at berlinjewish.com

We did a Baltic Sea Cruise in July and decided to book an independent tour company for shore excursions. We booked a small-group tour with TJ Travel. TJ Travel is operated out of St. Petersburg, but offers other Baltic port tours. Our group was comprised of 3 other couples and we had a long 3-hour drive from the port of Warnemunde, with no bathroom stops (that could be improved as there were rest stops along the way for a quick break). We were met in Berlin by "Matt", who would be our personal tour guide that day. Matt was actually English, not German, but lived in Berlin. Matt's knowledge of the city and its history was exceptional. He was articulate, knowledgeable, and personable. We visited Charlottesburg Castle, German Parliament, Brandenburg Gate, Linden-tree Blvd (Unter den Linden), toured the major streets of Berlin, and visited the 3rd Reich sites including the haunting Holocaust Memorial. Finally we visited the Berlin Wall and Check-point Charlie. It was a fantastic overview of a city, rich with history and drama.

This independent tour company fulfilled all expectations - even though the drive over could be improved with a brief bathroom stop, the tour guide selected made this shore excursion very memorable. The cost of the tour was very reasonable - at about $100 US for each of us. TJ Travel is highly recommended for Baltic Sea shore excursions.

We just finished a 2 day tour with our guide Robert Sommer. He is a young man born in East Berlin. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He is so knowledgable, friendly with a sense of humour. A pleasure to spend those days with him. It was so easy organising our trip with him. Emails were answered promptly, and the whole experience - great. Robert ..... Danke.

We have been working with Heidi now since two seasons for all our groups in Berlin. She and her lovely colleagues are responsible for the guided sightseeing of Berlin, a World War II Walking tour and an excursion to Potsdam. She is very professional, very knowledgeable and available at any time via email or phone.
Since we gave her all our business in Berlin the evaluations have been improved so much, we are very pleased with her services. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a personal experience in Berlin and about its history and culture!!
