What people are saying about Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

No free parking space found. Dropped my wife off at the bus and kept looking. Had already written off my tour. But to my delight I found that the bus driver had been waiting for me and that we could experience the beautiful tour together. We also liked the charming and funny nature of the city guide. A big thank you to both of them.

On September 3rd, 2020 we made the all-day sailing trip with Jörn as skipper from Warnemünde. It was an all-round successful day. Jörn explained everything very well and really tried very hard. We can only recommend the trip and would be happy to come back. Thank you for this great experience!

It was a great tour! A good mix of walking and bus tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and he brought the history of Berlin alive for us. Well worth the time and money!
