Yoav took my husband and I on an incredible 5 hour tour of Berlin. His knowledge knows no bounds so we finished the tour well informed not only about Jewish Berlin but modern day Berlin as well. I have a bad knee injury, having the chauffeur as well made the trip that much easier. Right up close and comfortable to... More

Today we did a your with Yoav, he was such a captivating guide with amazingly detailed knowledge. My wife is Jewish with a bad back and my son is a 15 year old historian, so Yoav sat down with us before we set off and discussed the options. We really feel that we would not have got this much from... More

Myself, my husband, and 20 year old daughter did the half day Jewish quarter tour. Yoav was very flexible in working with us to "personalize" the tour. He is so well versed not only in Jewish History, but in city history. I would recommend booking Berlin Jewish tours on your first day. We got a wonderful, historic overview of the... More

My wife and I spent two terrific days with Yorac. The first day was a tour of Jewish Berlin and the second was a general tour of Berlin. I have been here before but first time for my wife. Yoav is a very kind of guide. Not over beating, asks what you know and don't, suggests what you should see... More

We recently had a morning tour with Yoav which was excellent. He has a deep understanding of history and brings Berlin to life in a way that one never could by just looking in a guide book. Highly recommended.

Yoav spent 5 hours with us teaching us about the history of Jewish life in Berlin, and showing us wonderful sights. We'd already spent more than a week in Berlin, but still his knowledge and thoughtfulness enhanced our experience of the city and its history in an indispensable way. He brought feeling and nuance to our understanding, and we thoroughly... More

If you are looking for a guide in Berlin you need to contact Yoav Sapir. We spent two days with Yoav in Berlin. Yoav has vast knowledge of Berlin and it's history including the Jewish history. Yoav provided us with many different views of each situation/historical fact. Yoav is able to discuss history and many different issues from a variety... More

We had the privilege of spending one day with Yoav (East Berlin) and one day with Natalie (West Berlin). Both are extremely knowledgable and great teachers. With them we were able to see sights we had never known about. We learned a great deal about the Jewish community that had been here in Berlin and in Germany. The tours were... More

Yoav was a wonderful guide. Were made all of our arrangements by email and everything done was as planned. We were picked up at our ship's dock(Celebrity Eclipse) and driven to Berlin by private car where we met Yoav. He gave us a terrific tour with his personal insights. I would highly recommend him for your guide in Berlin.

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
