“Thanks and praise for a WONDERFUL day-tour of Berlin. We arranged for a van to pick 8 of us up from our cruise ship in Warnemünde and take us to Berlin for a full-day tour in mid-July 2009. Our guide, Johanna, was the best guide I have EVER had (and I've been in the travel business since 1981). Her knowledge, enthusiasm, and charisma were excellent. And...she had Euros cent coins to give us for the WCs!”
We will meet you off the ship, drive you straight into Berlin, give you a wonderful
day in the city, and return you to the ship in good time before departure.
