Rostock (Warnemunde) Berlin Excursion Reviews
We booked an all-day Berlin excursion through SPB Tours. Yes, it's a 3 hour drive there and back again from the port, but we didn't want to go to Germany without visiting Berlin, and this tour made it easy. The tour guide, Theo, was an Australian who has been living in Berlin for a decade. He was awesome. We saw so many wonderful places, including the remains of the Berlin Wall, and were extremely happy with the tour. It cost less and, per our conversations with other cruisers, was way more fun than the excursions the ship offered. We highly recommend SPB tours.
The 3 hour trip to Berlin was well worth the time. Our guide Aria was very dramatic, spoke English well, and talked about Berlin almost constantly. We travelled to Berlin in a bus with 46 people and were divided into 2 groups for the tour in Berlin. It was a 12+ hour day. We got out of the bus to see the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, and several other places. The pacing of the schedule was good.
Long drive to Berlin with boring countryside. Stopped for break about 1/2 way. Berlin was crowded, under construction but a must-see. Very rushed due to traffic on a Saturday. Stopped for several short photo sessions, brief lunch on own (snack bar style) then rushed back. Would have loved an authentic lunch or dinner.
Terrific. Small group of 16 and a great guide.
