About My Tours
I always encourage my clients to give me feedback as it helps me constantly improve and streamline the services i offer. Here is a selection of comments from previous guests. You can also see my online independent reviews on Tripadvisor.
Jonathan and I just wanted to thank you for a really great two tour days with you.
You really put Berlin into perspective and we learnt so much about the history and where it fitted in
with the rest of European history. The things that really stick in our minds is the number of German
Jews that died compared to the rest of the European Jews. We found all the places you took us to
really interesting and the railway station was very moving. Obviously Jonathan has grown up with
many stories from his family and it was nice to hear about your experiences.
I know you made such a difference to the other’s enjoyment of the trip. Cathy and Charles who had
been before said they saw the whole place in a different light.
Thank you again.
Kind regards from us both, Caroline and Jonathan
Nirit is simply out one of the best tour guides I have ever had the pleasure to meet. And I have done
many tours. Excellent subject matter knowledge on a vast range of topics with great experience and
great flexibility. And fun too. Wonderful use of photos and maps that really drive home the
historical significance. Do yourself a favor. Take the tour! And do it early in your visit. Once you
have done this, the city opens up to you.
your guidance in Berlin was excellent. There is no doubt about that, it was the highlight of our tour in Europe 12 hours of interest. you opened our eyes to see and to draw our attention to the right and the true. There were no boring minutes in your teaching, determinations, reasoning and explaining sometimes very delicate and heavy problems. I learned a lot. more than money can buy. Thanks for the experience. Let me say that, I do judge you as one of the most valuable human beings I met in my “short” 84 years. I wish you and your family a very prosperous future and happiness.
Nirit combines an excellent grasp of Central European and Jewish history with a deep knowledge of art, architecture and literature. She is an Israeli who lives in Berlin, is a former filmmaker and is today an outstanding tour guide. She is funny, captures moments in history with ironic tidbits and whisks you to more than you could ever see on your own. As a former tour operator myself, I am an experienced evaluator of guides, and Nirit delivers the highest quality experience, making your visit fun at the same time. I look forward to a second visit to Berlin and another day with Nirit.
I am back home in LA and I just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation on behalf of Nancy, myself, Danny and Tali. We enjoyed the tour of Berlin you gave us in the beginning of August. You were very informative, your car was impeccable and we will definitely recommend you to anyone heading your way.
Thank you again for making Berlin so interesting, you are the best!
A day in Berlin with Nirit Ben Joseph is the ideal introduction to the complicated often conflicting world of historic and contemporary Germany. Nirit picks you up in her spotless van, and guides you through the Enlightenment, the glory of 19c Germany, the downward spiral of the Nazi era , the post war division then recovery and brings you to today. The most unforgettable part of her tour comes with the explanation of Germany today, which she illustrates through visits to memorials, Jewish sites and the fabulously rebuilt modern areas.
Our interest was in Jewish Germany and we had told Nirit that at the beginning of the tour. Nirit took us to formerly Jewish neighborhoods, showing us memorials as small as 9 brass pavement pieces in front of a home whose 9 Jewish residents had been murdered. And as large as the full block memorial with its concrete jungle of tombs. She explained over our 6 hours with her how the many monuments constructed in modern times tied into contemporary German mentality.
