    Dear, dear Janna, We so appreciate your spending time with us, educating us further on the more personal side of some of the worst of times for Germany and her people. You filled in so many parts of the puzzle with sensitivity and compassion. The best part is that you told the truths that are so often missing, misrepresented or completely and purposely omitted in our knowledge of Germany’s history. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We wish you a wonderful holiday and a healthy, successful 2024. Much love and many hugs, Abby and Michael, New York, USA, December 2023, via toursbylocals.com

    Liebe Janna,

    ich möchte mich herzlich für die großartige Stadtführung bedanken, die wir kürzlich mit dir erleben durften. Als zugezogene Berlinerin und Kind, das im Osten aufgewachsen ist, waren wir besonders gespannt darauf, mehr über die Geschichte der Berliner Mauer zu erfahren. Und was sollen wir sagen? Unsere Erwartungen wurden bei Weitem übertroffen!

    Janna führte uns einfühlsam und kompetent durch die Straßen und Orte, die eng mit dieser bedeutenden Periode der Berliner Geschichte verbunden sind. Ihr Wissen schien schier endlos zu sein, und sie teilte es mit einer Begeisterung, die ansteckend war. Wir haben so viel gelernt und gesehen, dass die drei Stunden wie im Flug vergangen sind. 

    Was uns auch besonders gefreut hat, war Jannas offene und freundliche Art. Wir haben uns von Anfang an prächtig verstanden und fühlten uns sehr wohl in ihrer Gesellschaft. Es war mehr wie ein Spaziergang mit einer alten Freundin, die uns ihre Stadt auf eine besondere Weise zeigte.

    Wir können diese Stadtführung nur wärmstens empfehlen und sind uns sicher, dass wir wiederkommen werden. Es gibt noch so viel zu entdecken, und wir könnten uns keine bessere Begleitung als Jana vorstellen. Nochmals herzlichen Dank für diese unvergessliche Erfahrung!

    Mit besten Grüßen, Mira & Carsten

    Hello Janna – On behalf of Nema, Steve, Jean and myself thank you very much for a terrific tour. The places that we visited together and the information that you provided was insightful and well communicated. Great job! Also, thank you for inviting us to your art show. We enjoyed it. Your dinner recommendation was superb. We loved the place. Wishing you success in all of your pursuits and peace. All the best, Bob

    We had the joy of Janna’s expertise this past June while touring Berlin. She is articulate, incredibly knowledgeable, passionate about her subject and so engaging. Hard to imagine there is anyone better to guide you through the history of Berlin. She was focused on our interests; after listening to our questions and conversation for the first couple of hours she actually shifted the tour plan a bit because she thought a different stop or two would be more interesting for us than her initial plan. Can’t recommend her highly enough! 2023, via toursbylocals.com

    Liebe Janna,
    die 3 Tage mit Dir waren für uns ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis!
    Dein umfangreiches Wissen über die Zeit der Nationalsozialisten sowie über die Geschichte Berlins als geteilte Stadt hat unseren Horizont ganz schön erweitert.
    Die Kultur und Geschichte von Berlin wurde mit Dir lebendig.
    Auch Deine Touren durch ganz Berlin mit einer sehr leckeren Currywurst sind für uns sicherlich unvergesslich!

    Vielen vielen Dank für alles.

    We have used Tours By Locals many times in Europe and we had an incredible experience with Janna as our guide. It was our first trip to Berlin, and though we are history buffs, we learned many new things. Janna’s knowledge is exceptional, and she was also kind enough to incorporate some personal stories during our tour which brought events to life. Altogether our tour greatly added to our trip and experiences in Berlin, and I would highly recommend taking a tour with Janna. Via toursbylocals.de. Michael A., Vancouver, Canada

    Janna was incredibly knowledgeable and prepared. She has her tour down to a T, bringing extra materials to help provide context, and flexible as well. It was a lot of fun! She was also very easy to understand. We had a tour of 4 people, and she had a car for us that comfortably fit our group + her + the driver + wheelchair. My parents continue to talk about how good of a tour it was! Would highly recommend. via toursbylocals.com

    Liebe Janna, Herzlichen Dank für den wunderbaren Spaziergang! Du hast uns umsichtig durch Berlin geführt, bist auf unsere Interessen und Bedürfnisse eingegangen und hast unsere Fragen immer äusserst kompetent beantwortet. Durch deine Hintergrundinformationen wurden historische Ereignisse für uns zugänglicher und Berlin hat für uns dadurch an Tiefe gewonnen. Dafür danken wir Dir ganz herzlich.

Sie haben mich und meine Freundinnen und Freunde des Rotary Clubs Wien-Stadtpark in den vergangenen Jahren (seit 2017) bei unseren regelmäßigen Besuchen in Berlin zur Berlinale auf das Allerbeste betreut.

    Janna was terrific. She is extraordinarily personable and knowledgeable about the subjects: Jewish Berlin and 20th Century history. She includes detailed information about different areas in the City and the transition after 1989. Pictures from her computer really help to explain the history. She is also well versed in the cultural development of Berlin, having lived in the City for many years. We’ve hired guides in other cities and Janna was simply the best.

    We were lucky enough to get two days with Janna and loved both of them. She had a delightful sense of humor, and I can’t imagine us finding anyone who was more knowledgeable. She seemed to know everything about the subject and made all of the information come to life in an amazing and entertaining way. We would be thrilled to have her again in the future and will be telling all of our friends about our wonderful experience. via http://www.toursbylocals.com, September 2022

    „Mit ihrem umfassenden Fachwissen und ihrem hervorragenden Talent, trockene Fakten in spannende Geschichten zu verpacken, hat uns Janna Ressel bei unserer Städtetour restlos begeistert. Hinzu kommt, dass sie uns auch bei der Organisation des Ausflugs hervorragend unterstützt hat, so dass wir als Auftraggeber unsere Gästegruppe in besten Händen wussten.

    Janna’s 20+ years of experience as a tour guide sets her apart from other guides we’ve used in the past. She makes great use of visuals on her tablet, showing photos and maps that made history come alive. Our group of 4 adults and 3 teenagers all remarked that Janna was the best guide we had on this trip and that she really enabled our group to connect with and understand the city — both past and present.

    Janna was our lovely guide in Berlin for 4 days in Nov. ‘21. To say that she made the experience amazing would be an understatement—Janna weaved her extensive knowledge of the architecture, art, history, and music of Berlin into a beautifully curated and captivating experience. Her expertise is unparalleled and her warm engaging demeanor felt like we were catching up with an old friend.

    I cannot recommend Janna enough for your travels to Berlin.

    Liebe Janna, vielen Dank für die tolle Führung durch diese Stadt voller Geschichte und Geschichten. Janna hat uns (= 2 Teenagerinnen und 2 Erwachsenen) in 3 Stunden einen ersten Einblick in die Vielfalt dieser Stadt gegeben. Viele kleine Details, an denen wir normalerweise vorübergehen würden. Es hat uns allen grossen Spass gemacht auch die Benutzung von Bussen und Bahnen war eine prima Sache. Beim nächsten Besuch in Berlin buchen wir die Fortsetzung 🙂 Juli 2021

    Thanks to Janna we had a wonderful tour of Berlin, plus several extras. She told us of an open air concert scheduled the night before we met her that was marvelous. And, she recommended restaurants and museums for us to enjoy on our own after our time with her. Very knowledgeable and friendly, too. September 2019, New York, USA

    Thank you Janna for a very informative morning on a 3 hour Jewish walking tour. You are very informative and had many anecdotes that made the morning very interesting. You have a high level of knowledge. We also appreciated your reliability. Another tour group cancelled as twice at the last minute and seemed to have little care despite the fact that we had prepaid.

    Liebe Janna, die Museumsinsel in ihrer Gesamtheit, die Architektur, die Sanierungen und baulichen Erneuerungen – alles wollten wir von Dir wissen. Und Du hast es uns alles großartig erläutert und gezeigt. Sieben Journalisten sind natürlich besonders neugierig, fragen nach. Wir waren nach unserer vierstündigen Führung durch das Neue Museum, das Pergamon Museum und die Nationalgalerie bereichert und erfüllt von der beeindruckenden Kunst, mit der die Menschen in den unterschiedlichen Epochen ihrem Zeitgeist und ihren Gefühlen Ausdruck verliehen haben. Du hast unsere Führung nicht nur inhaltlich und kunsthistorisch sehr gut aufgebaut, sondern uns auch mit Deinem großen Wissensfundus lebendig informiert, auf Details aufmerksam gemacht und hattest auch so manche Anekdote parat. Wenn wir wieder in Berlin sind, wenden wir uns bestimmt auch wieder an Dich. Ellen Sehrbrock, Köln, 4.9.2019

    We had a wonderful day tour of Berlin with Janna. Of course one day can only scratch the surface of things to see in Berlin, but Janna organized our tour so that we gained an excellent understanding of Berlin and its history. The pace was just right. We would give Janna the highest recommendation! Roger F., USA, via toursbylocals.com

    Dr. Shay Pilnik, USA sagte:

    Janna offered our group a fascinating exploration of Berlin from various angles. She brilliantly covered the city’s more distant and most recent history. She touched on the subjects of Jewish Berlin, the rise of Nazism, the Holocaust and the Cold War, linking all these themes one to another and presenting them in a dynamic and engaging fashion. Her passion for Berlin is very evident. She made us all wonder when we’re going to be back… May 2019, Berlin part of a Holocaust Study Tour, Dr. Shay Pilnik, Executive Director, Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center HERC, Milwaukee, USA, via Taube Jewish Heritage Tours, Warsaw, Poland

    Dear Janna, Thank you for a great experience. We have a saying in US. Listening to you was like trying to get a drink from a firehose. So much information that some just blew by us. That is a wonderful compliment! We all learned so much today! My new learning just confirmed my opinion that German people are good, honest, and compassionate…and willing to learn from mistakes. Again, many thanks from the H.-S. family. We will keep in touch! Oh, if you have any ideas on how I can find Herr Stein’s grave, please let me know. Sincerely, Ellen H., USA, June 2019

    Janna speaks flawless English. She’s very prepared and comprehensive in her presentations with an iPad and keeps the tour so interesting despite the hot weather. Her understanding of German politics and history is amazing, just like Wikipedia. We hope to see her again someday for a longer visit because we know we have barely scratched the surface of her wide grasp of Germany, not just Berlin.

    Liebe Janna, wir möchten uns noch einmal ganz herzlich bei dir für die unglaublich interessante Führung gestern bedanken! Das von dir Erzählte hat uns sehr beschäftigt und wird nicht vergessen werden. Den Türken in Kreuzberg haben wir nicht mehr besucht, da wir einfach vom Mittagessen noch zu satt waren. Es gab dann eine Kleinigkeit in der Ferienwohnung. Heute steht bei Christina und mir nach dem Mittagessen im Reichstag „Shopping“ bei Bikini Berlin auf dem Programm.

    I recently had a group of university students on a Holocaust Study Tour to Berlin and then on to Poland. Janna accompanied us throughout the visit. She is not only highly knowledgeable, but was able to tailor her information to our group, altered what she was discussing to answer our questions, and made sure the learning style was appropriate to our needs. All our transfers were seamless, and she was like a second mom to the students. They loved her! You could not do better than to choose Janna to support your travels in Berlin and beyond.

    Hi Janna, The story and pictures on your website are wonderful. I can’t tell you how much we all enjoyed our trip to Berlin and it was all thanks to your thoughtful presentation of the history that made it all so fascinating for all of us. Our photo shoot with Karsten on the last day was a extra special bonus – we loved the pictures!!! and greatly appreciated how quickly Karsten got them to us at the hotel… I have told my kids to start saving for the next trip tp my favorite city, Berlin. I bet it is just as beautiful in the Autumn as it is in the summer though i loved looking at all the beautiful terraces with the colorful flowers on them. All my best, say Hello to Karsten for me.

    Janna provided a wonderful and fast tour of Berlin for me and my three grandchildren (ages 23, 17 and 16). Coming from a cruise ship it required a two and a half hour drive to reach Berlin and a three hour trip to return. We spent six hours with Janna and she squeezed as much of Berlin as possible into that time frame. I have to also comment on our driver Thomas who transported us to and from the city. He was totally professional and an outstanding driver. Great day! Thomas F., USA, Shore Excursion June 2018 with visit of Museum Otto Weidt’s Workshop of the Blind and Jewish Museum

    Janna Ressel is a professional tour guide, who captivates both the mind and the heart. She is thoroughly knowledgeable in German history. Her presentation is articulate and captivating.

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Janna. She met us at our hotel, which was very convenient for us as we were not at all familiar with the city. Janna was punctual, personable, and informative. She is extremely knowledgeable, and our family all agree that we learned so much from her above and beyond what we learned in school! Janna is passionate about Berlin, and we would be happy to tour with her again if we are fortunate enough to revisit the city in the future. Thank you, Janna, for a wonderful tour of your city! We thoroughly enjoyed it, and enjoyed learning from you. You said to us at the start of our tour, „Berlin is not cute“, but it is fascinating and full of history, culture, educational opportunities, and beauty, and we are happy that you were able to show it to us!

    We had a most interesting time in Berlin with Janna as our guide. She showed us (6 friends from Norway) Prenzlauer Berg, the socialist urbanisation at Karl Marx-Allee and the Stasi Museum. Highly recommended! Thank you, Janna!

  48. Karen B., Canada
    Karen B., Canada sagte:

    As a professor leading a group of university students on a Holocaust Study Trip, Janna was the perfect guide for our group. She was very interactive and constantly asked the students questions, encouraging them to think, wonder, and approach what we were learning critically. In other words, she was as much a teacher as she was a tour guide. In particular, Janna was an excellent guide for the Jewish Museum – we would not have gotten as much out of that visit as we did if we had not gone with her. I would highly recommend her for similar groups or for any group interested in learning while they tour. 2-day tour, Feb 2018, Karen B., STFX University, Canada, via toursbylocals

    Thank you so much Janna for a wonderful couple of days exploring the incredible city of Berlin. There was a lot to take in in such a short time but you made it so interesting for us and the four children that we have gone away so much richer with knowledge. You explained everything so clearly especially to the children. Berlin is a unique place and we thank you so much for sharing your incredible wealth of knowledge with us. It has been our pleasure to meet you and will definitely recommend you to any friends and family visiting Berlin in the future. Danke von The R’s Family, August 2017

    Linda Zh., Moleac Inc., Singapore sagte:

    Janna is really a wonderful guide, and more. We first engaged her for a business trip in Berlin, where she brings our clients to see the city on a bus tour. When we planned the tour, we didn’t know that Obama will be in town too so there are many roadblocks, which makes it unsuitable for bus tour, because some sightseeing spots are not accessible. Nonetheless, Janna managed to direct the bus and still make the tour very very interesting. There was only one time we pass by the same spot for a 2nd time, and yet she could say something else about the same spot, which makes the route not boring at all. All my clients are very very happy after the tour.
    In addition to the bus tour, Janna also helped with our transport arrangements for a business event in Berlin. Due to the nature of events management, there are always uncertainties from our end, but Janna was very patient and always responded quickly whenever we need her. For the urgent requests she really cannot help, she would also explain nicely to us.
    All my colleagues and bosses are very thankful for Janna’s help during our business trip. We would certainly recommend her to anyone who needs a guide in Berlin.

    Good Morning Janna, We all just wanted to say thank you yesterday for a spectacular day. We all just loved it and your knowledge of Berlin both past and present made it so enjoyable and educational. Thank you for your flexibility also on the schedule. Besides all of the Cold War information in Berlin, Teufelsberg and the Olympic Stadium were Highlights also. Especially for Harry!!!

    Janna provided an exceptional private guide experience over three days across the varied history and geography of Berlin. She tailored our experiences to accommodate our „slow pace“ of walking our interests in understanding the overall history of the city, the cultural differences across the areas of Berlin and the challenges of unification and integration of the city after the Berlin Wall was dismantled. Thanks for introducing us to the lakes and green spaces, and esp the stop at the „Bridge of Spies“! We had a memorable trip in Berlin thanks to Janna’s exceptional knowledge, great personality, and her commitment to providing us with an exceptional experience!

    Ist das nicht toll? Janna hat mich im Rollstuhl während 4 Tagen zu Fuss, per U-Bahn, Bus und Taxi(meinen besonderen Dank an den ebenso hilfsbereiten und fröhlichen Fahrer Stephan) kreuz und quer durch Berlin navigiert. Einen ganzen Tag begleitete und unterstützte uns sogar ihr Ehemann Karsten, ein professioneller Fotograf, der uns aus allen Winkeln mit seiner Kamera ablichtete.
    Janna ging bei den Besichtigungen voll und ganz auf meine Interessen und Wünsche ein und bereicherte mich mit ihrem unendlichen Wissen, was uns, in lauschigen Cafés sitzend, immer wieder zu spannenden Diskussionen anregte.
    Ich tauchte mit Janna tief in die Geschichte des Nationalsozialismus sowie der DDR ein und bei einem Spaziergang zum Bundeskanzleramt eröffnete sich für mich ein unerwarteter, kleiner Einblick in die reale zeitgeschichtliche Gegenwart, als wir beim Blick durch das Gittertor die Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel persönlich am Eingang des modernen Glas-Stahl-Gebäudes erspähten.
    Mein Aufenthalt in Berlin war dank Janna ein tägliches Highlight und voller Überraschungen.
    Ich danke Janna und allen beteiligten Personen für ihre unermüdlich Hilfsbereitschaft und die unvergessliche, lehrreiche Zeit.
    Da ich ja „einen Koffer in Berlin“ stehen habe, hoffe ich ganz fest, eines Tages in diese vielschichtige Weltstadt zurückkehren zu dürfen. Madeleine aus der Schweiz

    wieder zu Hause angekommen, möchten wir uns für ein aufschlußreiches und interessantes Wochenende in Berlin bei Ihnen bedanken.

Wir haben viel erfahren, gelernt und Anregungen mitgenommen. Hierfür ein dickes Lob und Dankeschön.

    Ben and I are so grateful to you for your enthusiasm in sharing all aspects of Berlin’s history. You have given us a very special insight to life over the last century and well beyond, which is a memory to last a lifetime. The dinner at Pauly Saal, followed by the opening of Daniel Biskup’s exhibition was such fun. Thank you so much for including us in the evening and for arranging such a special dining experience. Our visit to the Neues Museum and the opportunity to see the bust of Nefertiti was the perfect ending to our Berlin visit. I do hope that someday I can return.

    Janna met us at 10:00 a.m. for a four hour tour of Berlin. Since we had already done a city bike tour the day before, a city bus tour on the day of arrival and another yet-to-be taken bike tour out in Potsdam, we didn’t want to duplicate our efforts. Janna knew my husband was an architect, so her focus was the re-building of Berlin, the culture of the times, details of developments, etc. We took buses and trains to get to the eastern areas; Janna was professional and flexible – outstanding! via toursbylocals.com

She is extremely knowledgeable, articulate, and personable, and she provided us a fascinating in-depth introduction to most of the important inner city sites pertaining to the Berlin experience of the past 100 or so years.

We were 4 adults with many questions and many items on our list. I suggest you contact her in advance if you have any specific topics or sights you want to explore or see. Wish we had one more day to spend in Berlin so we could have spend more time at some of the places we visited. Next time… Thank you Janna. via toursbylocals.com

    My tour with Janna gave me an insight in to Berlin’s past that I would not have discovered on my own. Unpromising-looking courtyards that I would have walked past were the gateways to some wonderful old buildings and their secret interiors; an atmospheric ballroom, a disused synagogue that now houses a spectacular restaurant under an ornate dome, and a silent movie theatre are just some examples. Janna’s portfolio of photographs of old Berlin were very illuminating too. Altogether an excellent tour. Adrian M. via http://www.toursbylocals.de, Oct. 2012
