“Dave sets the standard high!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Friends of Dave tour aug 26. As promised Dave was waiting outside the passenger terminal upon disembarkation. The day spent with him was delightful.His passion and knowledge was amazing. We were outfitted with some state of the art listening devices, which never left us in the dark as he constantly shared his many stories. As he says, he has no filter and that adds to his charm!!. He escorted us to the train and we traveled to Rotstock changed trains and continued to Wismar. A mid evil village with a complex history. Dave ensures that not only you learn the history of the beautiful structures some from the 16th century, but he also wants you to learn more of the struggle of the people. Great city square to enjoy and a hearty lunch is included. the return trip on the train back to Warnedmunde was filled with more stories. Ask Dave about the wild cows? We had some rain throughout our day and Dave continued to change around the tour so that we could enjoy the most of the day. We finished off watching a beautiful sunset in Warnedmunde. If you are lucky, you will find out who gets to see that view from his balcony.
The only downside is..... Dave is so good!! He makes the day so special. We commented all the time in each of our next Celebrity cruise ports, that the other tour guides just didn't come close.
We would love to tour with Dave again and may be considering one of his river cruises in the future.

“Andreas - almost as good as Dave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is what we were told several times by Dave who greeted us at the pier to tell us he was too sick to take the tour that rainy day. I know of Dave's reputaion for being funny, quirky etc so it was a bit of shame but Andreas was charming. We went to Rostock as well as a lovely gentle amble around Warnemunde's charming houses and waterfront. He grew up in the area so to hear him talk about his father bringing him home from hospital and to see photos of the area from the past and to hear his take on how things are going for his country now was incredibly interesting. It was a very personal tour, nothing hurried, extremely well organised for someone who was asked to fill in. Sorry Dave, we didn't miss you at all in the end.

There were 6 of us and we were very well looked after, even a personal trip to the chemist for us as we had coughs, nothing was too much trouble. Biggest schnitzel for lunch that anyone has ever seen. Andreas has had a very interesting life for someone still young, a very enthusiastic and enterprising young man.

“Great day on Magical Mecklenburg Tour with Dave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We had a great 3-week trip to Northern Europe/the Baltics, but the day spent with Dave on his tour was outstanding among all experiences. He is knowledgeable (15 years in Germany), engaging with his information and stories, and ably manages a small group so we all stay on the same page while having fun and learning. I highly recommend his Germany tours, and imagine that his other guided trips are as interesting and stimulating.

“More friends of Dave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We found Dave on Tripadviser as an alternative to a long cruise excursion to Berlin; what a great decision! Dave was entertaining and knowledgeable, and the local sights were interesting! I was pleasantly surprise. Wurnemunde is a delightful, former East Geman resort town with great charm. After touring the town and stopping for coffee and a sweet(which was excellent), we took a short train ride to Wismar, a beautiful, well preserved town nearby. Again the touring was interesting and FUN. Lunch was excellent. Thanks Dave.
