I was nervous about booking this trip since i had no phone that would work in Germany and would have no way to contact the tour company if there was a problem but everything went very smoothly. Our driver was ready and waiting when we disembarked and drove us to Sachsenhausen where we picked up our guide. Lorna was a native English speaker and very well-informed about what we were seeing. Her commentary was informative and interesting. After touring the concentration camp, we were driven to Berlin where we were given a choice of a full German meal or a sandwich which would allow more time for seeing the sights. We chose the sandwich and were taken to a local shop away from the tourist traffic. From there we toured the Holocaust Memorial and then went on to the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag,,the remnants of the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie. We had limited time to shop in a fancy chocolate shop but almost no opportunity to pick up a souvenir which was disappointing to some. . It was wonderful to have such a small group only 5 which made it easy to keep things moving. Other members of our family went on a motorcoach tour which took just as long as our tour and although they skipped Sachsenhusen they didn't see any more than we did in Berlin. Due to the distance from the port to Berlin, a lot of time was spent just riding in the van but the trip was still worth the effort. We would highly recommend this tour as the best way to make the most of your port of call in Germany.

Rick is fantastic tour guide. Very flexible and extremely knowledgeable. We had a great time.
Driver was waiting when ship arrived. Fantastic day. Guide very knowledgeable
We loved our trip to Berlin! Our guide Finn was fantastic, super knowledgable, and picked up on what our interests were, so he tailored the trip to our interests. Having a private guide through Sachsenhausen made the whole experience so much more real, and full of depth. Our driver Thomas was equally wonderful, timely, and he was able to handle a handicapped individual well. This was by far one of our most memorable excursions!
Excellent driver, tour guide, stopped all the important points. Good choice for restaurant. Everything as advertised and more. Good value for money.
Our tour with Mike was excellent. the private tour provide so much more than just news about the camp. Life at the time, some of the history about the Reich Stag, Berlin Wall, Brendanburg (sp) Gate, lunch, Museum Row, The interaction and question to help understand the time, war, allies etc. The Holocaust Memorial - everything came to life more with Mike. Great tour, Great guide. Well worth the money. Thank you Mike.
