Description

This semi-private shore excursion includes shared (bus) transportation from the cruise ship to Berlin and a private tour in Berlin with a personal driver, vehicle and tour guide.

The tour is adjusted to each ship’s docking times and starts promptly after your vessel’s arrival, returning with plenty of time to spare before its departure. Our expert team has been organizing these tours for nearly a decade. We have never missed a cruise ship’s departure and imparted our knowledge and enthusiasm for our unique and beautiful city to thousands of satisfied passengers!

Your hosts will greet you in front of your cruise ship as soon as it docks and show you to a comfortable, air-conditioned bus. You will share the bus with other passengers from your cruise ship. After a relaxing, comfortable journey through the picturesque flatlands of East Germany, you will arrive in Berlin. Here there will be a private vehicle with a driver and a professional tour guide waiting for you. After a 6-hour private tour you will jump back onto our shared bus transportation and travel back to the port.

Your private tour of the city can be custom tailored to your exact specifications. You can make all the decisions what to visit, where to stop and where to spend your time. It is hands down the most flexible way to see the German capital.

Typically the tour begins at the Charlottenburg Palace. Following an introduction to the city given by your private tour guide, you will drive through the former British sector along the Kurfürstendamm, past the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and the KaDeWe.

You will then head to East Berlin, stopping for a photo opportunity at the Reichstag Stroll through the famous Brandenburg Gate and nearby Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Admire the Tiergarten, the Victory Column, a Soviet memorial, as well as the Paris Square. Continue on to the site of Hitler’s bunker, through Potsdamer Platz to one of the few remaining pieces of the Berlin Wall before reaching the Topography of Terror. Next is your chance to pass through Checkpoint Charlie – the most famous crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War - and visit the former US sector.

After some free time for lunch (not included in the tour price), your tour will continue through the former Soviet sector of East Berlin to visit the spectacular Gendarmenmarkt and Bebelplatz – famous as the ‘Nazi Book Burning Square’. You will also have a chance to visit Berlin’s historic former Royal Quarter – the beautiful boulevard of Unter den Linden, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Museum Island, the Berlin Cathedral, and Alexanderplatz with its iconic TV Tower.

Time permitting you might also drive past the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall with its world-famous graffiti – the East Side Gallery or stop in the former Jewish Quarter.

At the end of your Berlin tour, say goodbye to your tour guide, board the shared bus, and be whisked off in comfort back to your cruise ship.
