We were recently on a cruise and had only one day, but thankfully 12 hours to see Berlin.
I booked a tour from Warnemunde (where the ship was docking) to Berlin, with Denrus, which is also known as “TJ Travel / Cruising Excursions / Berlin City Tours / Ulko Tours / DenRus”. This cost $312AU for the 2 of us.
Apart from the confusion re. company name (emails came under the name of "Get Your Guide") this proved to be a fantastic tour.
We were picked up at the port at 10am as promised and travelled for 3 hours in a comfortable coach. The coach didn't have any toilet facilities but the driver did make a comfort stop approx. half way.
In Berlin we picked up our guide - Alexander, who spoke very good English.
Unfortunately, we can't remember the names of all the places we visited but Alexander was so knowledgeable about everywhere and seemed to bring all these amazing landmarks to life. We saw Charlottenburg Castle, the awe inspiring monument to the murdered Jews, and a smaller but also inspiring monument to the genocide of the 'Sinti and Roma' (Romany) people.
Time was spent at the site of Hitler's Bunker, the Victory Column, the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, parts of the Berlin Wall, Museum Island, the German Parliament and the Berlin Cathedral to name just a few which we remember!!!
It really was a memorable day, which I would recommend to anyone with only a day in Berlin and an interest in history. Alexander, our guide was simply marvellous. He was not only knowledgeable but patient and very amusing.
We were delivered back to our ship at 10pm having thoroughly enjoyed the day.
