Great Day Exploring Berlin
August 14, 2022
We had an awesome time on this excursion. We got off the ship and the buses were easy to find. We bussed into Berlin and met our guide. He was an American who's lived in Germany for well over half his life, (including the fall of the Berlin Wall) so he was the perfect person to show us around. We saw a ton of sights and learned a lot of the history of the city. Great tour all around.

The excursion was excellant but the only negative was the long bus ride. I thought Berlin would be closer but I am very glad I went to see the city.

The Best of Berlin
September 24, 2019
The tour was fine, but we were given the wrong time to meet. We had a three-hour bus ride to Berlin from the ship, and the driver broke the speed limit to make up the lost time. We also had to hurry at every stop we made in the city, again, to make up for the lost time.

Berlin Very Good
September 12, 2019
The long bus ride into Berlin from port was well worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable, she covered all the important sights with ease and plenty of time and could discuss any of the points of interest in detail. Make sure you have coins in Euro for the toilets, they charge everywhere. We had a great pretzel and beer in the city markets - great.
