I had the pleasure of joining a group from my Baltic Capital cruise on Dave's HANSA Tour. What a great day we had!! Dave was very knowledgeable and shared history, stories, and interesting facts with us throughout the day in both Warnemunde and Wismar. His great attitude and humor made it a fun day. He was easy to find as we disembarked and was organized and efficient. He had everything arrainged perfectly. We had a rest stop with tea and cake mid-morning and a wonderful lunch in a local Wismar restaurant. Dave had prepurchased train tickets for us and knew the train schedules so we had no wasted time buying tickets or waiting for the train. All along the walk and on the train we were able to hear his commentary as he had provided head sets and even had extra batteries, in case they were needed. I would not hesitate to book another excursion with Friends of Dave, or maybe even repeat this one. Thanks to Dave, this was my favorite excursion during the entire cruise. Thanks for a wonderful day in Germany, Dave!

I took the Christmas Market Tour in December 2011. Dave really went out of his way to make this a dream vacation for our small group. I went on the tour as a solo traveler and met the most wonderful people. The group was small and all from the US. Dave provided several dinner events...like the St. Martin Goose dinner that was out of this world. My mouth is still watering. Each town we stayed in had a Christmas Market set up. The hot mulled wine and local crafts were the focal point.
We stayed at a 15th century hotel and several boutique hotels that were unforgetable. Thank you Dave for taking me places I never even imagined I would visit. My favorite city was Kalovy, Vary.

The "Complete Hansa Tour" with "Friends of Dave Tours", starring Dave himself is two tours in one, and just a completely fun experience. Dave shows off his new home town of Warnemünde as well as the medieval city of Wismar, connected by an enjoyable train ride. Dave is equally informational and fun to be with; great background and historical overview of the sites, with loads of irreverent, flamboyant comic relief.

This is an ideal tour for a single-day port stop on the northern coast of Germany, a much better day trip out than the long ride to Berlin and back. Save Berlin for a trip when you can spend more time there. For a port stop, however, do Dave's tour.

The tour price is all inclusive: snack, lunch, transport, the hefty German taxes and even local beer! The first person to book a tour date gets to pick which tour. If you are in Cruise Critic, promote the tour in your cruise's roll-call and fill it up.

Dave never stopped entertaining us from the moment he picked us up outside of our ship to the end of the day. He is VERY knowledgeable about the area and sites we saw. Of course, since he is American, he was very easy to understand and he kept us entertained the whole day with history and stories about the area. We really enjoyed the town of Wismar and the lunch at the brewery was one of the best we had on our trip. We enjoyed Dave so much that we are really looking forward to seeing him again next year on the river cruise.

If don't take a tour with Dave you will have missed the best of Warnemunde.
