My wife and I had a fantastic 6-7 hour walking tour of Berlin with Ronen in early September 2017. How good ? Well, we then took a cruise which visited Copenhagen, St. Petersburg, Tallin, Stockholm, Olso, Amsterdam, and when people ask us what was the highlight of our trip, we tell them: Ronen's tour of Berlin ! That's right, Ronen beats out the original Van Goghs, Rembrandts and Michelaneglos that we saw in museums along our trip. Because, in his own right, Ronen is a master too ! By way of background, we signed on to the cruise because we believed that Berlin would be a port of call, and we really wanted to visit and learn about Berlin. When we realized that Berlin was actually a few hours from the port where we would dock in Germany, and we would not have that much time in Berlin, we changed our plans (at some cost and inconvenience) specifically to fly to Berlin first and visit the city. So, we really had a lot "at stake" in doing so. And Ronen exceeded our expectations. First, he is a very nice and personable fellow. He was very helpful in email communication before our trip re. the logistics. He met us at our hotel at 9:30 AM and we spent a magical 6-7 hours with him. He told us -- and showed us - - about the history of Berlin, from medieval times, through Nazism, Communism, reunification and the present day. He could tailor the tour to any particular interest we had. It was amazing to stand where history was made and our world and lives shaped by events, with Ronen as our guide. Ronen created memories , and learning, which will endure for us. He enriched our lives, and we cannot recommend him highly enough.
