Last month we had a four person tour of the Jewish history of Berlin led by Lior of Gablinger tours. He was extremely knowledgeable but presented all of his information as a story teller would, giving us historical dates, statistics and personal stories all integrated in a way to give everything meaning. He pointed out little items in neighborhoods it would be hard to find on one's own and personalized his talks to questions we asked as well as covering the basic information he wanted us to have. It was enlightening to the Jews and non-Jews in the group.

Alex was a very well prepared guide for this visit to the Jewish history and sites in Berlin. She gave historic context to the sites we visited and brought it a physical reality. Alex made our trip memorable and we are pleased we had the good fortune to have her as our guide.

From first contact via e-mail, the experience with Gablinger was truly exceptional. Our guide, Amos was fantastic. The information and sites visited were powerful and impactful. The personal nature of the stories told were truly emotional. Tamar and Nadav provide a wonderful service. You will not be disappointed seeing Berlin through their eyes!
