We had a great tour with Christian through Warnemunde, Wismar, and Schwerin. It was great to have headsets so we could hear the commentary wherever we were in the group.

They keep the groups small (ours was 15 people), which really makes it feel very personal and allowed us to ask questions along the way. Christian’s English is excellent, and he really has a passion for sharing intimate knowledge of his home area (he grew up and still lives in Warnemunde), and the history of Germany.

The bus was very comfortable and the travel time between cities was just right for a rest since you will end up walking about 5 miles during the long day (09:30-19:00). They are very conscientious of the cruise ship schedule and made sure we knew what time we’d be back.

Christian made sure we were comfortable at all times and gave us plenty of opportunities for bathroom stops along the way. The lunch was excellent and very filling. We also stopped for coffee and cake, which was very nice.

We highly recommend this tour and hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

We did this tour last summer and had a wonderful time visiting all the sights. The restaurant that he took us to for lunch was wonderful especially the mushrooms in cream sauce. We walked around the tour of Rostock and enjoyed a visit to the castle on the hill. The little town of Warnemunde is well worth a visit. Good value.

This tour meets right off the boat with a friendly and professional guide named Christian. His English speaking is suberb. You begin with a walking tour of Warnemunde (Rain or Shine). After about an hour tour we hopped on a bus and went to the city of Wismar. A lot of history and exhibits i.e. how bricks were made to build the huge church. More history which is enjoyable as the guide just keeps providing more and more detail. We stopped at a restaurant that dates back to I believe the early 1400's. We had lunch and sampled some local brewed beer. Outstanding! Back on the bus and another city to visit where you have some free time to shop and enjoy the cobble stone streets, etc. Christian is fantastic and makes the day very enjoyable. The tour than walks on to the outstanding Mecklenburg castle. We were there on the day it was not open so we walked around it....WOW! then had time for a few photos and off for Cake at a local cafe. Truly outstanding and welcomed in mid afternoon. Back to the ship on time. The only downside----if it is a rainy day this tour would not be so good since there is a lot of walking and as we were told the tour happens in Rain or Shine.

Our day trip with Christian from Warnemünde was the first stop on our Baltic cruise and WOW did Christian make it a good one!! The whole day was fantastic - christian was awesome - his great personality and sense of humour kept the whole experience flowing and fun, the many beautiful and interesting places we visited and the great organisation of every aspect of the tour !! Lunch at the 400 year old traditional German pub was delicious and a highlight of the day!! Our teenage boys enjoyed it as much as we did. Can’t recommend this highly enough!

Pleased I found reviews of this tour on trip advisor! It was the best visit that we made on our Baltic Cruise in September on NCL Getaway. Cristian was knowledgable and funny. I could do the whole tour again! Thanks very much.
