Bus was at the port when we arrived and left on time. Had an excellent tour guide who spoke perfect English. had a small map of the locations we would visit. Did not have the water listed in the literature.

Although the trip from the cruise port to Berlin is very long (around 3 hours), the ride is wonderful. The onmibus and the guide were waiting for us right after disembarking. Excellent punctuality, organization and security. The walk through the city of Berlin is excellent. You visit the most important places with a guide very well informed and always willing to please you. I am very happy with Shore Excursion GroupI I recommend it !!!!

This tour was one of the highlights of our 12 day cruise!!! We easily found the meeting spot, the bus was clean and cool (during a heat wave)! Our tour guide Sam, was simply fabulous!! Extremely knowledgeable and personable, we learned so much!!! We were returned to the ship promptly with ample time left it was due to leave port. Our only disappointment was that we did not book ALL of our excursions through the Shore Excursion group.. They were half the price of the ship excursions!! We plan to take ONLY Shore Excursion Group tours on future trips!! 5 stars

Given the time constrain and bus travel distance, the tour guide did the best she can for the guest to see the tourist points. She is on time to depart and return for the tour. For lunch, she hand out a pre-formulated lunch menu of the restaurant, after we made the selections, she called the restaurant to pre-order the lunch so we would not have to wail long. We finished the lunch in 45 minutes. There two things I suggest to improve for the tour: 1) we were split from our friends family. When we request to stay one the same bus/tour, we were told it could not be done with no reason given. 2) The tour guide did not get on until we reached Berlin. I wish someone would tell us such as the restroom stops, when the tour guide will get on, etc.
