Nine of us booked a private Humboldt Tours Berlin for the day. The mini bus picked us up promptly from our Oceania ship at 8 am which was docked in Warnemuende (Rostock) and drove us the 3 hours to and back from Berlin. They were very careful to ensure we got back in time for the ship sailing. We did not waste a minute. We got to see absolutely everything that we wanted (East/Middle/West Berlin, World War 2 and modern sites). The old wall, Topography of Terror exhibit, Memorial to the Murdered Jews, Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and the Gendarmenmarkt were some of my favourite highlights. Bernhard our guide was wonderful. He is working on his PHD in History so he had so much to tell us. In fact all their guides are University graduates who grew up in Berlin. They can share so many personnal experiences of how things were before the wall came down. Working with Humboldt Tours was so easy - we corresponded often by e-mail to choose the exact itinerary and times which suited us. All funds were transferred using paypal so I felt secure. If you want a class outfit run by professionals - then book Humboldt. A much better experience than taking one of the ship's large excursion buses!
