We had a great tour guide who graduated from Penn State. She was very well prepared and organized. Great day in Berlin!!
Our guide, Heather, made the most of our short time in Berlin together (about 5 hours). She was informative and helpful. The group size (no more than 20) was appropriate. Unfortunately it just takes too long by bus (about 3 hours each way) to get from the cruise ship dock at Rostock to Berlin.
