We had an excellent 5 hour tour of Berlin with Lior. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Lior was able to impart information and tell stories in a very engaging way. He showed us very interesting places and I would definitely recommend this tour with Lior.

We booked a tour with Gablinger tours solely on the recommendation from Trip advisor. Our guide Lior was knowledgeable, sensitive to our needs as well as to his subject matter and gave us an insight of Berlin that we would never have otherwise had.
We spent two days with him and our appreciation of the city and it's history was so much more enhanced having him as our guide.
We would highly recommend him and Gablinger Tours.

Dear Nadav,
We visited Berlin 2 weeks ago and took 6 tours with your company.
In general, the guides were outstanding - informative, communicative, respectful, responsive, highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their subjects and about Berlin.

Eran -
We took two tours with Eran: Highlights of Berlin and The Wall. We were especially impressed with Eran's knowledge of current history and politics. Thanks to his explanations we understood the historical background as well as the issues involved in breaking the Wall, the cultural and political differences that had created two separate worlds: west and east Berlin and the relationship between them after breaking the Wall. In addition, Eran showed resourcefulness as he jumped and held the train door open when some of the group members did not manage to get off the train before the automatic door was shut.

Yael - Dresden -
As we were leaving the city, Yael shared with us a lot of interesting information about current issues concerning Berlin. Later, we learned a lot about the history of Dresden and the bombardment of the city by the Allies in WWII.
Yael's profound and comprehensive knowledge as well as her pleasant personality made our tour most enjoyable.

Asaf - Postsdam -
Thanks to Asaf's detailed explanations and tales, for one day we forgot about current events and politics and enjoyed learning about the historical and cultural period of the Prussian Empire in Potsdam with its beautiful gardens and castles. It was interesting to learn how this beautiful historical site was neglected during the DDR regime and was reconstructed after the unification of east and west Berlin.

Lior - Jewish Berlin -
As much as we have learned and read about the Holocaust, we will never really grasp how the atrocities against the Jewish people were possible. Lior, with his profound knowledge and emotional identification with the subject led us sensitively yet enthusiastically through some major significant sites in the history of Jewish Berlin during the Holocaust - Gleis 17 Memorial - one of the major sites of deportation of Berlin Jews, Meisler's Kindertransport statue Trains to Life - Trains to Death, the Righteous Otto Weidt's brush workshop for blind and deaf, and more. It was a very powerful and significant tour.

Daphna (Faphi) - Alternative Berlin
Faphi was definitely the best choice for a guide - energetic, highly knowledgeable, humorous, hypnotising. She vivaciously described current processes Berlin has been going through since its unification and how it became a cosmopolitan city and a cultural and artistic center.

We'd like to thank you for the gratifying experience we had with your guides.

All the best,
Benny and Rina Shacham

I booked Lior as a guide for my 18 year old daughter and a few of her friends (5 hour Jewish walking tour). He collected them from the hotel and they reported back he was an all-round incredible tour guide. His knowledge and ability to answer all their questions with detail superseded their expectations and kept their interest. They visited many interesting sites in various locations - giving them a comprehensive and thorough understanding of the Jewish history in Berlin. Lior was extremely educated in many different areas and fields not just the specific tour details, and they engaged in interesting political discussions. He was also very helpful to them as 18 year olds giving advice on fun places to visit for their age group outside of the tour and good places to eat. We would highly recommend Lior to anyone visiting Berlin.
