What You Can Expect
Admire Brandenburg Gate – an iconic symbol of Berlin – and pose for photos next to the Berlin Wall while hearing about the futile division of Germany following World War II. Amble past Berlin Cathedral to marvel at its medley of architectural styles, and then see the TV Tower -- the city’s most popular attraction.
Your guide will happily recommend the best restaurants and cafes in town, before leaving you to enjoy lunch (own expense). Meet back at the pre-arranged time, and continue sightseeing around town.
Given the city’s complex modern history, many of its sights hark back to the days of WWII, and its vibrant streets echo with reminders of its past. Scout out the most poignant WWII monuments, like the Holocaust Memorial and War Memorial, while hearing their history from your guide. Take a walk through Checkpoint Charlie – the only point where visitors could cross between east and west Germany during the country’s separation – and then see Hitler’s Bunker, as well as sites like the Nazi Air Ministry and Bebelplatz -- the scene of the Nazi book burning.
Finally, get a taste of the city’s cosmopolitan culture, with visits to Potsdamer Platz and Gendarmenmarkt – two of the city’s must-visit squares. If museums are more your thing, then head to one of the city’s leading museums, like Pergamon Museum (own expense). You are free to explore independently its staggering collection of artifacts – treasures of ancient civilization from around the world.
Bid a fond farewell to the city and your guide, and then relax as your driver transfers you back to Warnemuende Port.

This private tour was one of our best! Our driver was waiting for us with a sign as we left the cruise ship, we drove in an air conditioned van with a bathroom stop on the way 2 1/2 hour drive, and we met Ryan our tour guide in Berlin. He was extremely knowledgeable and took us to every important stop with a full story on the history of each site. He was, by far, the best tour guide we have had. It was well worth the money!
Emily from the local tour company was a great tour guide with a lot of information and history to share. We were only there for one day but we managed to see everything we wanted. Being on a private tour gave us the flexibility to see what we actually wanted and stopped for breaks at our own convenience. A car seat for our son was arranged for us at no extra cost.
Our guide and driver were top notch. Highly recommend the Viator excursion over the excursions offered by the cruise lines.
Sensational guide, The combination on the concentration casmp and downtown Berlin was just perfect. Comfortable vehicle.
We had an amazing tour of Berlin. We were a group of five and each one of us rated this as tops. Our tour guide was enthusiastic, personable and very knowledgeable. We were give an opportunity to experience Berlin in a way we will never forget.
This tour was amazing!
The driver met us at the cruise ship and we met our guide, Finn in Berlin. What a wonderful guide he was! So knowledgeable and interesting - knew lots of small facts and trivia as well as the major info you want to know about. He took us to a great outdoor place for lunch that felt very "local" in character. I loved every minute of the day. Ask for Finn if you go!
Wonderful ! Everything was perfect...Loved Caroline...Could not ask for more....
Excellent, driver was perfect, professional, informative, nice. Private guide (Rick) in Berlin was fantastic, I highly recommend him, American who has lived and studied in Berlin for 4 years so we could relate to him in so many ways, he was so knowledgeable and informative.
The tour was great. Our driver met us as expected and took us to Berlin where we met Lorna. She was an excellent tour guide. We let her suggest the best locations to view. Her knowledge of the city was good and she was very personable. This trip with 5 others was much better that a tour on a large bus and I would highly recommend it.
