We were two couples arriving in Warnemunde via a cruise ship and after some prior deliberation had decided to forego the suggested ship excursion of 3 hour train travel into Berlin and 3 hour trip back to the ship. We dubbed it the Berlin buster, because of the short tour time in Berlin. Instead we joined Friends of Dave Tours... More

Christian made us see Germany through new eyes and we can't wait to return. Our day with him was one of the best times we had and we look forward to visiting Germany with Dave's tours in the future. The itinerary was fantastic giving us plenty of time in very interesting and diverse places. We are so pleased to have... More

I have been itching to add a rave to Dave's and Christian's reviews of this wonderful tour, but since we were on the ship for the long haul - and given computer issues aboard ship - I have had to wait until we were home to do so. Christian is as wonderful a guide as those who have preceded me... More

We decided to take this tour because we realized that the seven hours to get to and from Berlin would just lead to a frustrating visit. This tour is reasonable, well organized, educational and fun. Our guide was Christian who is personable, well informed, and passionate about his home. We started with a walking tour of Warnemunde, followed by a... More

Christian and Hans did a great job leading our tour. Christian's insight and personal stories about life in East Germany made the tour!

I will begin with one word...FANTASTIC! I knew immediately from TripAdvisor reviews that this was the way to go when not planning to take the arduous journey to Berlin from the cruise ship at Warnemunde. Dave had emailed ahead of time to let us know we would be meeting his associate Christian for our one-day tour and we were treated... More

Our party did a tour with Christian as guide during our cruiseship visit to Warnemunde in August 2015. The tour was part walking part coach with lunch at a local brewery included. Christian was an excellent guide - he comes from Warnemunde & his command of English is exceptional & his sense of humour & fun approach was very much... More

Our cruise ship docked in Wärnemunde, Germany, as a gateway city to Berlin, but Berlin is about 3-4 hours driving south of Wärnemunde. We decided to tour locally, which we did, with the tour company Friends of Dave (FoD) and it was a wonderful tour and day trip. The FoD tour includes a walk through Wärnemunde, a drive to Wismar...

Thank you very much for your kind words. I would like to answer your question about payment. From 2009 until 2014 I was fortunate to work on the honour system and seldom be disappointed. However, earlier this year we had some experiences that forced us to switch to an up front payment policy. The folks you saw paying on the... More
