      Although the drive to and from Berlin makes for a very long day, it is worth it. Great tour. Heather was very knowledgeable and eager to share her knowledge. Good overview of many top sites. Disappointed we were unable to pass by Hitler’s bunker (late leaving pier waiting on tardy passengers!) or unable stop at Checkpoint Charlie (traffic and possible also a timing issue related to late departure). Very good traditional German meal at local restaurant. Would definitely recommend this tour.

      Our guide, an American gal with a degree in history, was very knowledgeable and gave us an amazing amount of information during our excursion. We saw all of the highlights listed on the Viator site -- this tour really made history come to life. We had a nice treaditional lunch in a neat German restaurant. The 3-hour bus ride each direction made for a very long day, but it really was worth it.

      This was a fantastic tour. Over and above what was promised. Our English speaking tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He captivated our interested and attention for hours. The motor coach ride was comfortable but lengthy. Well worth the time it takes to get to Berlin from the ship. We paid a fraction of the price our fellow cruisers paid through the cruise line. I highly recommend.

      This was an excellent tour-- our tour guide was very knowlegable with a degree in history, I'm sorry I forgot his name. He was also jewish and his family was from Germany and impacted by WWII so it was all the more interesting to us to hear him. All the stops were very thoughtfully selected, and it definitely impacted how I think about Germany after WWII. We saw the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, the wall, parliament, holocaust memorial, spot where Reagan gave his speech, and many other memorials and historic sites. Our driver did a great job meeting us in various spots to efficiently tour us around Berlin. We ate lunch in a quaint square that had several restaurant options. Bring some euro. Get some euro change as most of the bathrooms are pay bathrooms, though our guide found a couple that were free. It's a long drive from Warnemunde, but it was worth it.

      This was a great tour with one caveat. The bus ride from Warnemunde to Berlin was 3 hours long and 3 longer hours back. It was just a bus ride with no commentary. Once we arrived in Berlin we transferred to another bus for the tour and our guide was outstanding. it was breath-taking to see some on the huge monuments that served as the back drops propaganda photos of the Third Reich and to follow the history of the Cold War and the Berlin Wall. Then to see how they have successfully reunified and rebuilt their country since the wall came down. This is a great value tour for cruise ship passengers. It cost about half of what the same excursion offered by the ship did and the only difference was a train vs a bus ride. After comparing notes with fellow passengers, we found that the two tours were virtually the same and the train ride was just as long as the bus ride.

      I took this tour today with our guide who is very knowledgeable on German History. Her name is Heidi Ellis. She's an American who graduated from Penn State and pursued her Masters at Brown University. She continued her studies in Berlin and has been tour guiding for 12 years. Excellent bus and walking tour. We were picked up in Warnemunde on time where the Viking Sea was docked and brought back on time as well by Ziggy the driver. Being that it was only 9 people in the group, the tour had the right pacing. We walked leisurely around the historical sites in Berlin - stress free. I truly enjoyed the experience.

      This was an excellent tour of Berlin. We were a small group, but if you were the last one in the van, you sat in the back and had a limited view. That is my only criticism, otherwise this was a great way to see the highlights of Berlin in one day.

      Forrest is our tour guide in Berlin Germany, who speaks English well. He is from USA Excellent tour. Request for him if you want an excellent tour guide who speaks both English and German. It takes 3 hours to by bus to get to Berlin from Warmemunde cruise port terminal. Nice scenery while on the bus. We were given enough time for our bathroom breaks n buy snacks for the road so you won't get bored. Communicate with the tour guide most of the time. Bus drivers speaks German only. Historical landmarks were very informative.

      Heather was a wonderful guide. The tour itself was almost overwhelming for those old enough to relate to WWII as told by their relatives who served during that time. Add to that the East Germany, East Berlin oppression as history in our lifetime. It's a long ride from Warnemunde and back, but the 5 hours or so in Berlin is a valuable life experience.

      Yes it was a 3 hour drive Rostock to Berlin but very worth while. Berlin really needs more time but we didn't have it. This small group tour gave us the chance to move about this wonderful city quickly seeing so much history and still have lunch a quick shop before the 3 hour drive back to the ship. Yes we were tired but happy.

      We purchased this trip based on previous experiences with Viator, and again TOTALLY pleased. The tour was basically advertised as similar to what the cruise ship offered, but nearly 1/2 the price, and can tell you the tour was twice as nice as the cruise one, based on the comments of fellow cruise passengers that did the cruise tour. The pick up at the ship was waiting as we disembarked, the beautiful bus ride into Berlin was comfortable, even having a 1/2 way convenience stop, and meeting our incredible tour guide in Berlin. Sightseeing around the city, including time at the Church, Brandenburg gate, Check Point Charlie, and the Holocaust memorial, which was a memorial experience...many other places as well. Excellent recommendation for a leisure lunch, then a nice ride back to ship...where we all had to wait for ship departure,...as the ship tour was late returning as the railroad they used had problems...go figure,,,,,,would recommend VIATOR for everywhere you visit, as have now used in Paris, Rome, and now Berlin. Great value for the .

      To see Berlin on a cruise you must travel 2.5 hours from the coast Warnemunde and Rostock are essentially the same place. This took us by very nice bus straight from the cruise terminal. We stopped at highlights like a remnant of the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust Memorial, Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie which is merely a reproduction, but what the heck. Back to the ship with plenty of time to spare.

      We enjoyed this tour, and our guide was very enthusiastic, and keen to show us as much as possible. Definitely worth the price. The bus picked us up on time right at the port, and dropped us back to the ship. Very easy and efficient. The bus was comfortableThe only negative is that with the long bus ride from the cruise ship to Berlin (almost 3 hours each way), it would have been nice to have some highlights or history en route, even if it meant something to download before getting on the bus. No wifi on the bus. The driver spoke no English, and we only met the guide once we reached Berlin...made for a long trip.

      It was a long day of 3 hours of commute from Rostock to Berlin one way. Besides that Berlin was amazing with its history. The irony of the Berlin wall now is that it has a wall to protect it from visitors. Wish it was much closer than a 6 hour commute.
