5 StarsFabulous Tour-September 21, 2017

Reviewer: Susan Roy
The ride to Berlin from our dock was some 2-hours, but the coach was comfortable and not overcrowded--and more importantly--the coach made one (much needed) stop in each direction. The bus driver was more than efficient and the tour guide beyond exceptional. We saw all (at least for us) the salient Berlin highlights. Indeed, I/we recommend this tour!!

5 StarsSo worth it!August 29, 2017

Reviewer: Wileen Halter
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Even though the bus ride was 3 hours each way it afforded a time to relax and catnap. Once in Berlin we were gifted with the best guide Berlin has to offer. Jim has lived in Berlin 12 years, earning his doctorate in history and marrying his love from Berlin. Because he was born in Minnesota he spoke perfect English and had tons of history and stories about the Berlin area. I was fascinated seeing WW II come alive. Sights I will cherish and memories I will not forget. The Holocaust Memorial was especially an unexpected surprise. Jim had first hand knowledge and answers for all our questions.

Reviewer: Helen Collins
The tour guide (forgot her name) is very knowledgeable of the history and the area. She has a sense of humor and was able to keep everybody in and out on time which was not an easy things to do.

Reviewer: Sheryl
Looking at the 6hr ride for a few hours in Berlin, I really wondered if it was worth it. Definitely!! And I would do it again. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and passionate about Berlin. She was well versed in its history and showed us great historic pictures of the places we were visiting. Her enthusiasm was contagious- we want to go back!
