Well I am astounded at the negative reviews of a couple of people. We were lucky enough to have Christian as our guide and he was so friendly, knowledgeable and sensitive in all aspects of the history of his country we have nothing but respect and admiration for him. The Mega Mecklenburg tour was the highlight of our European holiday.... More

We did not want to spend hours on the train to and from Berlin, so I found Dave here on TripAdvisor. Our tour guide, Christian, greeted us right off the ship along with his assistant. It was a small group in a large bus, so you had plenty of room to stretch out. Christian was amazing. His knowledge of the... More

We are cruise regulars and I did not want to pay in advance in case of any unforeseen circumstance. Two days or so before the tour, we got an email to be punctual and be at the dock at 9:15. We were there at 9:00. Tried to call the office and cell phones they gave but no answer so we... More

You did not get stood up, you merely did not follow directions. You booked last minute to take a cancelled spot and received an automatic acknowledgement which had our normal departure time of 9:15 listed. However, in our personal email chain which came MINUTES after the automatic answer, they all state clearly 3 TIMES IN BOLD LETTERS: TODAY'S TOUR ADJUSTED... More

Our cruise ship docked in Rostock and 25 of us were met by Christian and the bus for a wonderful 9-hour tour of the three cities. Best tour we have ever taken. Great sights and scenes and Christian's perfect descriptions of the historical significance, facts, interesting points and lore. And the included lunch and dessert stops were fantastic as well....

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.

Thank tastyeater
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...
