Berlin's Top Ten

Outstanding tour delivered by a true professional
July 17, 2023
Took this tour on June 25 and possibly one of the best day tours ever. We were met at the cruise terminal by Jens who was our driver and tour guide. a small group and lovely minivan. A brief stop on the way to Berlin for refreshments and then on our way. It was the opening of the Special Olympics that day in Berlin and as a result, lots of street closures. Not a problem for Jens who navigated his way around the city without impacting on the tour experience. Parked just behind Brandenburg Gate for lunch and continued our tour. Plenty of time for stops throughout the day. Jens, a true professional, customer focused and obviously loves his city and delivers a very personalised tour experience. He gave us a great insight into modern Germany and it's history. One of the best our experiences ever. Delivered back to cruise with plenty of time to spare. definitely recommend. Thank you Jens.

Berlin’s Top Ten
July 06, 2022
We had a great experience, beautiful day and we were able to see lots of places. Full of history and events. Berlin is a city with so much to offer. We learned so much and would love to go back. Incredible historical places. The memorial for the Holocaust was impressive. The remains of the wall……it was like going back in time.Check point Charlie. The churches, monuments, the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and Rausch the chocolate place, my favorite shopping place during the excursion. The transportation was comfortable and we had a very experienced driver. I would do the excursion again . Thank you for a wonderful time.

This is definitely worth the money. We have taken many excursions over the years and it was one of the best. Jens is an exceptional guide. Although it was an almost a 3 hr drive he continued to give us entertaining & informative info during the drive. Despite a large diplomatic meeting in Berlin creating heavy congestion in traffic, our driver was able to maneuver through traffic and get us to all of the sites listed. Throughout the tour Jens continued with entertaining info that had additional insight as he had been raised behind the Berlin Wall. In addition, there was about 12 in the group and we were in a small tour bus that was very comfortable, and almost seemed like a private tour.

Bus excursion to Berlin
October 01, 2019
Provided a great opportunity to travel inland to Berlin in a short period of time; short stop at lunch for side street food taste could have been more organized, so that less time was wasted. Helsinki's Hop On Hop Off Bus Excursion did not offer enough time to cover all sites; boat ride was very enjoyable.

Berlin in One Day
September 16, 2019
This tour covered more Berlin sights than the cruise excursions. We were prompt getting back to the ship without any problems. It was a whirlwind and tiring day fitting in so much but very much worth it to anyone who wants to see the Top Ten sights in one day.

Great way to see Berlin
September 11, 2019
We were very lucky because there were only 4 people and we were in a SUV so got to more easily go around the city. It’s a long drive from the port so time is very limited in the city. We saw the sights and we stopped for curry wurst at a stand which was a very local thing to do. Our guide was wonderful and friendly and gave us a good amount of information about the city. He even took us to a beach on the Baltic Erich was a great extra since we were this small group.

Although this tour involved a three hour bus ride both ways from the cruise ship, it was well worth it. We got to see all of the things that were of major interest to us. Our guide, Yanna, was delightful and provided insights that only someone who lived there could have. We would definitely recommend this tour!

A Bit Much
August 14, 2019
We'd never been to Germany and visiting Berlin was a must. And we did see quite a bit of the city. But with the length of the bus ride there and back it always felt rushed. The guide did her best but there really wasn't enough time to stop and appreciate the city.

Covered A Lot of Territory
July 21, 2019
We had a nice, air conditioned bus. This turned out to be a life saver as it was 104 in Berlin the day of our tour. We learned later that the train the cruise ship used broke down for 2 hours with no AC. But it is a long day with about 6 hours travel time. That being said, we saw the city’s historical landmarks and had an interesting guide who shared some personal stories from her experience living in former East Germany.

Spent One Day to explore Downtown of Berlin
June 10, 2019
Our tour guide was very friendly, her knowledge on Berlin's historical as well as experience on how to spent a day with us was as planned. The remnants of the Berlin Wall was my favorite stop, Holocaust Memorial with a brief walking tour around the area. A wonderful lunch with Currywurst/Bratwurst and German beer. Shopping for chocolate in Rausch. I would absolutely recommend this tour for travelers who are visiting Berlin for the first time.

Jens was by far an experienced, informative and most accommodating guide. We were able to have access to roads that do not allow buses, a small group allowed us not to linger longer than necessary and at the end Jens added a visit to the beach where our ship was docked. A great day totally!

Half day Berlin city tour and wall
May 28, 2019
The bus ride was comfortable and the countryside perspective was enlightening . The Berlin Wall story and history was significant to see and visualize with pictures and progressive story recreated with actual pictures on walking tour where the wall stood . The holocaust memorial was somber realization of the great injustice to manking. We were treated to walking thru the famous gates of Gratenburg. And visited check point Charlie and witnessed first hand the story of the Cold War

A Day in Berlin
August 30, 2018
Our day long tour in Berlin was provide by a knowledgeable and friendly tour guy. The tour was very comprehensive and covered allLl the key places to visit. Lunch was also provided in a authentic German restaurant which was delightful. Another bonus was that we had only 5 people which gave all of us an opportunity to interact with the tour guide as a group. I would highly recommend Shore Excursions Group.

Excellent tour of the Best of Berlin
July 30, 2018
Our tour guide and bus were waiting for us at the pier and everything ran according to schedule all day. Our guide, Jana, was very friendly and had wonderful personal stories to tell as well as the historical significance of each sight visited. It was a lot to see in one day but our guide made sure that each stop was valuable. The Topography of Terror was my favorite stop. We had photo stops, brief walking tours, comfort stops and a wonderful lunch, Currywurst and beer! It helps to have some Euros for the tour, coins for toilets and one of the coffee shops/bakeries only took cash. Most places will take credit cards. Don't miss shopping for chocolate in Rausch. I would absolutely recommend this tour for travelers who are visiting Berlin for the first time.

This was a very personal day with only my husband and one another couple and the driver and the wonderful tour guide. He made Germany and especially Berlin come to life. He was able to help us move through the top sights of Berlin with ease and a very interesting day that only a local could provide for us. We could have never seen all that we did in a day without this tour and guide and driver. Both were polite and personable. Easy to understand and a wealth of historical facts in a huge wonderful city. this was hands down better than we would have had any where else. We strongly suggest this tour and this company for sight seeing. Also Lunch was nice in a park setting also. Thank you.

Great day out! Guide was enthusiastic, and went an extra mile to ensure special requests were granted. Even found a shoe store for a specific brand of German shoes I wanted! And this was on our shopping break, when she should have been having some down time. Only 8 of us in a van with guide and driver. Lots of photo stops and chances to walk about at historic sites. Well worth it, now I want to go back to Berlin

It was a long day to take the bus into Berlin. Would there be a train available instead of the bus? We knew what to expect but wondered if that would be an option. I noticed that the ship's shore excursion into Berlin included a train. It seems so expensive to sleep all the way back to the port. The sights of downtown Berlin were interesting and I thought the guide was good as well.
