Our tour of Schwerin and Warnemunde was great. Dave has a fun personality and keeps you entertained during the entire tour. And he cares about every person on the tour as "his people". He has an in-depth knowledge of the area and shares the history of the region as well as showing the highlights. The value of the tour was so much more than the price. The sites, the food, drinks, and the company made this tour the best. Thanks DAVE!!

On a recent Holland America Baltic cruise a friend and myself booked a tour of Warnemunde and Schwerin with F.O.D. Tours. Dave met us promptly at the dock with a big smile and great enthusiam that did not fade throughout the day. This remarkable man has years of experience in the travel industry and, with his partner Michael, offers an experience not to be missed. Dave has researched the area as only an American ex-pat would, his knowledge is amazing and he is eager to impart it.

The walk around Warnemunde revealed a sleepy little port with oodlees of charm and great architecture. It's history is fascinating and there are still aspects of the town reflecting its East German past. The stop for coffee and kuchen was welcome, we never felt rushed but moved at a pace that allowed us to get in as much as possible. From the greetings he received from dog walkers, restaurant staff and general passers by it is evident that Dave, who now lives in Warnemunde with his partner Michael, is a welcome addition to the community.

We took the train to Schwerin, an old Hanseatic city and now a UNESCO world heritage site. I will not spoil the experience for those of you who are booked on this tour but will say that it was a highlight of the cruise. I am a lover of history and architecture and in this small city you have both in abundance. The lunch was perfect, a charming old restaurant and theere was a choice which we had not expected. Being asparagus season the specialty of tthe day included them ( white of course) but there was also rouladen and other German dishes to choose from. A glass of beer or wine was included.

We were a group of 7 which was just about perfect. Dave is humourous, makes you feel as though you have known him for years and yet is efficient in getting the group around. I cannot commend his tour highly enough, if you have the chance to go on one of his tours TAKE IT! He also provided us with valuable information about other places on the cruise including a tour company in St.Petersburg called ALLA. Don't take the ship's tour there, we saw far more for less money and in a small group.

Even though we had pouring rain the entire day, Dave is a wealth of information about culture and history and makes the tour loads of fun. I would highly recommend his trips. He is so knowlegable and affable to be with. The rain did not get in the way at all.

We met Dave at the port, off our Princess Emerald Baltic Cruise in Warnemunde. The fun begin from the minute we met Dave!
He runs an extremely informative and fun filled tour. It truly was a highlight of the trip, From a port we thought would just be kind of dull, there was so much to do and see.
I very highly recommend this tour to anyone who doesn't want to take the long trip to Berlin for the day and wants to have a fabulous time! The restaurant and beer was memorable as well. Thanks to Dave!! We will remember this tour always,

Dave, took our group on the Magical Meklenburg tour, It was a long day filled with sight and sounds to beautiful to explain in this short review, it was worth a lifetime of memories. Dave was wonderful and I loved that we finished up the day with the beer and lemonade drink. Complete fun from start to finish. We look foward to traveling again one day with Dave perhaps on the Christmas market tour. Thank You Dave! Patty,Pete and Erin
