It was a long day but satisfying day. There is a 2.5 hour train ride to Berlin and another 2.5 hours back. The rest of the time is a chance to see Berlin today and yesterday (e.g. Berlin Wall)

We booked a private tour with another couple. The were picked up at the ship by a driver and car ride was 2 hours. Our guide met us in Berlin and we drove around to see the sights that we wanted to see. Having a private car in Berlin was great as we drove right up to the attractions. Having to do it again, we most likely would have taken the Viking train trip into Berlin and booked a private tour car from there. There were no reviews that we could compare. Read Less
