A wonderful, relaxing, interesting day. Our guide Christian was terrific. First he took us through Warnemunde, a delightful, resort town. This is his home and his love of this area added to the depth of his knowledge. Through out the day, Christian was great at explaining the historical significance of each area. I really enjoyed hearing his personal stories about... More

Having just come from terrible tour due to the guide we had on a tour in Copenhagen,we were overwhelmed by Christian and this FoD tour. Visiting the area of Mecklenburg with a native, one born and brought up in Warnemunde (and who still lives there) was one of the highlights of our tour. Christian could not have been more informative... More

6 Americans on a Baltic Cruise: 2 kids (9 & 12), 2 parents, 2 grandparents. The tour was overbooked accidentally, so they offered us an extra beer at the brewery, but even with the larger party, there was plenty of room on the bus, headsets worked great, but it still really felt like a personal tour! Chris led the tour,... More

I cannot say enough positive comments about our day with Christian and FoD. The schedule was clear in advance along with instructions. The day spent with Christian was fantastic - warm, funny, enthusiastic, caring and smart! A note of caution for those with mobility problems - there is a good deal of walking so think twice. I highly recommend this... More

We had a good tour most of the time but we felt just driving an hour or so to Schwerin Castle and not getting inside at all was a waste of 2-3 hours going/coming. Also, we did not apppreciate that our guide went off on a political lecture about his beliefs that we found offensive...others might not.

Dave N, Owner at Friends of Dave Tours, responded to this review

Dear Guest, I wonder why you did not choose to go inside the castle if that was your wish? While at the Schwerin Palace, our tour allows guests to spontaneously decide whether they wish to go inside and view the 14 rooms which are open to the public or if they would prefer to sit at a cafe on the...

We could not say enough about Gens and the tour we took during our Baltic Cruise which began on July 17, 2016. When we got off the ship he was right there and instantly gave us a very warm welcome. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the places that we were taken to and really made the tour most enjoyable and... More

We found Dave's Tour when we were researching the available excursions from our cruise ship. We've already been to Berlin and didn't fancy the long coach trip there and back. The reviews were virtually all good, the tour looked good and we weren't disappointed. Jens was brilliant from the get-go. The tour was everything we could have hoped for, with... More

We took this tour off our cruise ship rather than being independent or traveling to Berlin. Christian was engaging from the moment we met him and his insights into Germany pre and post unification were an added bonus. His grasp of history was great and his ability to present his own views made his presentation all the more powerful. The... More

The tour with Christian and Jens was entertaining and interesting and we loved the small size of the group. There was a nice mix of historical information and tidbits on contemporary life. Good food and lots of laughs as well.

Booked as an alternative to the cruise ship excursion to Berlin. A sensible decision for us. The tour of Warnemunde, Wismar and Schwerin exceeded our expectations, probably because of Jens, our guide. His knowledge, humour and expertise made every place an interesting experience. Sharing his personal experiences growing up in the old East Germany put many things in context and... More
