Aside from the beginning of the day where it was not so clear locating our tour guide (the signage was ambiguous) the tour was perfect! We had a great tour guide, Karen, who knew a lot about the history of the area. The castle was beautiful. Definitely recommend!

We decided to take this tour because we feel Berlin is too far, and you have to be on the road for half the time. This tour is an excellent alternative. Our guide is great. The Bus was very comfortable. Schwerin is amazing, lunch is also very good! We particularly love the local beer!

Decided to forego expensive cruise selections and take this excursion to Warnemunde, Rostock and Schwerin Castle. It was a lovely day and Karin was a knowledgeable, interesting and friendly guide. Also included lunch/drinks! Well organized and the bus was comfortable.
