We traveled to Berlin, Germany by way of a cruise to Germany's coast and then had a two hour private van ride for 7 people to Berlin to meet our guide Finn Ballard (berlinwalks.de.com) . Finn was an excellent guide. He is an Irish lad who found his way to Berlin 5 years ago in pursuit of PhD studies and has since made Berlin his home. He has studied the history and culture extensively. His knowledge was a perfect fit for my husband who was an undergraduate history major and is particularly interested in World War I and II history. My college aged children enjoyed hearing about contemporary issues regarding Berlin's younger generation. My 82 year old father was moved when he saw such important sites he had only see in photos and read about. For me, I appreciated his condensed review of what we were about to experience. The tour was fast paced as we were a mobile group and we covered over a dozen sites. Finn prepared us with background information and with a file of photographs prior and during the site visits. His humor was delightful as well.
