After a 3-hour bus ride to Berlin, we were split into 2 groups of about 15 people each with our own guide, Nikolai who was considerate, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had frequent stops throughout the city for photo ops. We each received a map showing the sights we would see during the tour. I am so glad that I booked this tour.

The Berlin excursion was excellent value for the money - half of what the ship excursion was going to cost. Efficient transportation to and from Berlin (3 hour ride each way) and friendly and knowledgeable guide (Ulrica). Will definitely be my first option on future cruise excursions.

Super guide. Knew his facts and covered a huge amount of history in a short period of time. Outstanding!
Reviewer: NICHOLAS FORMAN
This was an excellent tour. Enjoyed every minute and covered a lot of Berlin in mere hours. It was a long day with the bus ride from the pier but was well worth it. For sure we will want to re-visit Berlin in the future.

Overall this was well-organized and gave us a great overview of Berlin. My only criticism was our guide gave us too much information as he was filled with details and history and info. I would have appreciated more opportunity to ask questions. He did bring along some great historic photos though. Unfortunately, the tight time schedule gave us far too little time at the Berlin Wall at the end of the tour.
