What our clients say
Classic Berlin Tour with roundtrip Berlin-port transfer
24 person max or private | 6hrs. transfer + 6hrs. with guide and driver | Very active
This is an exciting tour that gives you an inside view of the City's turbulent past and promising future. We arrange a tour for you to see the majority of the main sights & landmarks during this one day and all at an affordable price. You will be picked up at the port (in Warnemünde, Rostock or Wismar) in a comfortable A/C vehicle. It will be at your service for 12 hours. You will enjoy a 3 hour ride on the German Autobahn on your way to the city of Berlin. You will then be met by your English speaking guide and either transfer to another vehicle for the day, or stay with the vehicle you are in.
Sightseeing will include highlights of the capital with photo stops at the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, The Berlin Wall and the famous Reichstag with the glass dome. You will have a chance to walk, drive and take plenty of pictures on the tour. You also have the option to try a traditional German meal for lunch.
Tour runs with any number of people signed up (for most, but not all, cruise ships.)
Private Tours will still share a transfer from Warnemünde to Berlin (and back) with other SPB-Tours guests unless a private transfer is arranged for an extra cost.
This tour is not recommended for wheelchair passengers or anyone with mobility issues or walking problems. There is approximately 1km of walking before lunch and 1km of walking after lunch. There are steep stairs to get in and out of the bus.
If a person with a wheelchair decides to participate he/she must have a personal helper to assist in boarding/disembarking the vehicle, and entering the restrooms and restaurant, and all sites. At certain locations a wheelchair person may not be able to exit the bus, and may have to stay inside the bus.
