Depart the pier and take a short walk across to the train station to board your exclusively chartered standard train for an approximate 2 1/2-3 hour journey from Warnemunde to Berlin. While relaxing and watching the German countryside pass by, you'll be served a light breakfast snack. Upon arrival at one of Berlin's train stations, your local Berlin tour guide will welcome and assist you to board your coach. Your sightseeing tour begins with an overview of some of the major highlights of Berlin. You'll pass by remnants of the Berlin Wall, Alexanderplatz Square, Checkpoint Charlie, the Red City Hall, Unter den Linden Boulevard, Gendarmenmarkt Square, Potsdam Square, the Victory Column, Bellevue Palace, Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag government building and Bebelplatz with the Empty Library memorial. After passing these world-famous landmarks and attractions, you'll have the opportunity to spend approx. 3-3 1/2 hours on your own to visit a museum, do some shopping or return to some of the sights for closer inspection. After your time at leisure, you'll meet your escort at a central point and return by coach to the train station, where you board your private train for the return journey to Warnemunde.
Note: Lunch is not included on this tour. The order of the sights may vary.

We actually booked the trip where we planned to do Berlin ourselves as we had been to Berlin previously. That was cancelled due to lack of interest. This was a great trip very informative, great guide. On the downside the trip is very long the train uncomfortable, hot, and breakfast interesting. Also we didn't really get 3-31/2 hours to ourselves only about 11/2 so by the time we had eaten not much time left for any sightseeing on our own.
The train journey is about 2.5hrs each way, I went to Berlin and Potsdam, my husband did Berlin and Sachsenhausen. We had never been to Berlin before, and as we were on separate coaches we each took photos and sometimes wondered if we had been to the same place!
Potsdam was interesting, but I would have liked more time at Sans Souci with the option of going inside instead of spending so long driving around the streets of Potsdam at grand houses which were nice but not very interesting.
