Knowledgeable and amiable guide, interesting sites, great lunch and still back to the ship before most of the Berlin tour groups got back from six hours of train or bus commuting.

Thanks Christian for showing us your town. The day was perfect to tour the area. I appreciate that you remembered my "gluten free" diet for lunch & dessert. So glad my friend Dave told me about Dave's tour. Best Regards, Mary & Steve Yaussy

Excellent answer above.. but 5% for the bus driver is too much... I can tell you that people LOVE our guides and generally show it as suggested above, but the custom of the area for the bus driver is 1-2€pp.
