Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Start your day as you board a chartered train for an approximately 2 ½ hour journey to Berlin. During the train ride a host will hand out a snack box and informational material on the way.

Once you arrive in Berlin meet your guide on the platform und follow them to your waiting motorcoach. Your morning driving tour of Berlin will include photo stops at the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall. You will also pass by other sights such as Checkpoint Charlie and the Reichstag, the seat of the German Parliament, the Gendarmenmarkt Square, Tiergarten Park and the Victory Column to give you a good overview of the city.

Your guided tour ends at the Berlin's and Germany's most famous shopping mile, Kurfurstendamm Boulevard, featuring an abundance of shops, designer outlets and continental Europe's largest Department Store, KaDeWe.. From here you can explore Berlin independently in the afternoon. Go for a walk, do some shopping or have lunch in one of the many cafes and restaurants. Once your independent is time coming to an end, meet your fellow travellers and escort for the transfer to the train station. Passengers will also be given an "emergency kit" with important telephone numbers and of course the meeting time and place for your return journey. After you arrive at the train station board your train for the approximately 2.5 hour journey home. Your host will hand out a little snack on the way before you arrive back at your ship.

For tours that offer more in-depth exploration with actual visits to one or more sites, see the other options in this port.
