Berlin: Jewish Heritage and History Private Guided Tour

The Jews were spread worldwide after being exiled from their land.

Germany, including Berlin, excluded the Jews from normal life, but the Jews were persistent in the face of attacks and eventually received full rights as citizens. From isolated ghettos and communities, the Jews climbed to an influential social position in economy, science, culture and the new emerging democratic politics of Germany until the Nazis took power.

I’ve been in Berlin for 4 days now and this is by far the best thing I’ve done. The tour guide (Matthew) was super friendly, smart, answered all of the groups questions and took us on an amazing tour. I wish I had done this earlier in the trip as I would’ve booked another tour through this company (on the front tours). Highly recommend. The tour was about 2.5hours long, not too much walking as there are times when you can sit on benches to rest while listening to the guide

Mark was an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable and friendly. Also a good pace compared to so many other tours that move too quickly. I would highly recommend!

Sehr interessante und kurzweilige Tour, ein Spatziergang durch die Geschichte Berlins. Sehr empfehlenswert für alle Altersklassen …

Excellent guide, Mark made Berlin’s history come to life. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Everything was just great, exciting and interesting
