This was a brilliant tour! Christian was our guide and amazed us with his knowledge, compassion, friendliness and humour. The lunch break at the brewery was easy going and well organised and as it was a warm day, the cold drinks were appreciated. The walks and the bus trips were well co-ordinated while the walk around Scherwin Castle was a... More

This Friends of Dave tour was very good 'taste' of the area, an efficient bus connection for short hops between three separate little towns, most enjoyable walks to see the character of each town. Narrative on the walks and the bus was informative and well done. Highly recommended activity whether in the area via cruise ship or other. Thanks FoD!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Christian touring the wonderful beach town of Warnemunde, walking around the town of Wismar, the Stolpersteine memorial plaques in the Jewish quarter and the discussion of Nazi history. Christian's passion for the subject was obvious when he asked why no one did anything and how it relates to things going on in the world... More

Everything was very well organized from the time we left our ship.The bus was air-conditioned and very comfortable. Jens was our guide and he spoke flawless English. He was born in East Germany and... More

Great Experience. Tour taken from cruise ship docked in Warnemunde Germany. Our guide Jens was very knowledgeable and shared his interesting stories about growing up in East Germany with us. Lots of walking but well worth it.

This was our first cruise and Rostock our first port of call shops closed on a Sunday) - this was the perfect trip with good company, history, lovely scenery and great food. Organisation was spot on (they went to great lengths to find a missing passenger through no fault of their own), and Christian was the perfect host - friendly,... More

Well I am astounded at the negative reviews of a couple of people. We were lucky enough to have Christian as our guide and he was so friendly, knowledgeable and sensitive in all aspects of the history of his country we have nothing but respect and admiration for him. The Mega Mecklenburg tour was the highlight of our European holiday.... More

We did not want to spend hours on the train to and from Berlin, so I found Dave here on TripAdvisor. Our tour guide, Christian, greeted us right off the ship along with his assistant. It was a small group in a large bus, so you had plenty of room to stretch out. Christian was amazing. His knowledge of the... More

We are cruise regulars and I did not want to pay in advance in case of any unforeseen circumstance. Two days or so before the tour, we got an email to be punctual and be at the dock at 9:15. We were there at 9:00. Tried to call the office and cell phones they gave but no answer so we... More

You did not get stood up, you merely did not follow directions. You booked last minute to take a cancelled spot and received an automatic acknowledgement which had our normal departure time of 9:15 listed. However, in our personal email chain which came MINUTES after the automatic answer, they all state clearly 3 TIMES IN BOLD LETTERS: TODAY'S TOUR ADJUSTED... More

Our cruise ship docked in Rostock and 25 of us were met by Christian and the bus for a wonderful 9-hour tour of the three cities. Best tour we have ever taken. Great sights and scenes and Christian's perfect descriptions of the historical significance, facts, interesting points and lore. And the included lunch and dessert stops were fantastic as well....
