Lori SchaumleffelUnited States
Britt was amazing! We had a wonderful and educational day sharing the sights and culture of the coast of East Germany. Britt was delightful and spoke English without flaw. I would highly recommend her tour. She was very helpful with picking us up right at the cruise port, and returned us to the boat with time to spare. Thank you Britt for making our day a delightful experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lori, it was my pleasure and I enjoyed the day as much as you all did!! Come back and I'll show you more of this part of the world!
Chris W.United States
A fascinating tour which gave such insights into Germany. Britt's knowledge and interest in the area were great--from the ferry ride in to the tram ride back we were given so much information--Britt is high energy which you will see from her smile when you first meet her. If you have a day to spend here and you want not just history but information about the recent history of the transition from its East Germany history to modern day this is a great tour--note though it is a very full day/lots of walkin
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Chris, thanks a lot for your rating and the comment. I enjoyed the day with all of you and I hope to see you again some time in Rostock!
John OdonnellUnited States
Brit is wonderful... She met us at our cruise ship and she had train and tram tickets ready for out short ride to nearby Rostock. It was a very nice city and Brit knew it well. She is a very pleasant person. At the end of the tour I mentioned that I needed to find a new small Swiss Army knife to replace the one I gave to the TSA. No problem said Brit and she led us to a sporting goods store where I completed my purchase.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, thanks so much for your review and a wonderful day together. The book that is worth reading about a farmer who emigrated from Mecklenburg to the US: Letters of a German American Farmer - Juernjakob Swehn Travels to America. I really hope you visit Rostock again and we can do another tour together.
Michael SarloUnited States
Britt was very organized and informative. She had supplemental information to share with us including old pictures. It was a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Michael! It was great to have you guys here and show you the sights! And there is more to see around Rostock if you come back!
Britt better than expected. Very personable. Her English was excellent. Very knowledgeable and conversant on a wide variety of topic. Britt was right on time at our docking and greeted us with a beautiful smile in spite of the weather. We learned a lot from Britt. It's obvious she is passionate about her guiding. I recommend Britt to any one who is looking for more than a follow me sign. Britt has a vast knowledge on topics ranging from history to culture. There was nothing she couldn't answer for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Chris. It was great to have you all here and show you Rostock. You really made this grey day bright! Next time you'll have better weather! Best wishes, Britt

Keith S.United States
Britt is full of life and energy, that she shared with us on our wonderful day touring three cities. Her knowledge to detail and care to give you a very broad perspective of history and culture to the current times. We could not, as a family, be any happier than the day that we spent with Britt. As a side note, make sure you ask Britt, "Where is the best coffee and pastry shop?". We highly recommend a tour with Britt.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! It was wonderful to have you guys here and I was very happy to have such interested and interesting people on this last tour of the season. Hope to welcome you again here some time!
Dale FrederickUnited States
A wonderful day. Britt took control and showed us little things & places we wouldn't have seen on our own or on a tour with a larger tour group. We had a great lunch at a sidewalk cafe then later that afternoon Britt took us to a special off the beaten path cafe for cake and coffee. We loved her personality and infectious smile. Britt was prompt to meet us and we were back to ship on time. The professional driver she used was Ronnie and he was great too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dale. You really brought the sunshine to Mecklenburg. Ronnie and I enjoyed the tour with you a lot and were happy to show you the local treasures! And I'm going to think about the Cake&Coffee tour :-))
Zeev SmilanskyMeishar, ------, Israel
Britt is wonderful guide for Rostock, knowing everything there is to know (as much as we could tell...), very friendly as well as professional. Rostock is easy to under estimate - with its layers of medieval, Hanseatic, DDR and modern history, which are evident from almost each building - if you can decipher it... we were only two people, so the tour was certainly not cheap - but we are very happy we took it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Haya and Zeev, it was great to have you here! When you are in the area again let me know! Best wishes, Britt
Jill BauerFernandina Beach, FL, United States
The morning with Britt was like a Sunday stroll with an old friend. She shared the history and personal insights of the area while showing us all the key historical sites. Britt timed the tour so well, we did not intrude on any Sunday services, nor did we feel rushed at any location. She was especially helpful in seeing us off at the train station so that we could go on to Schwerin Castle by ourselves. She even provided a map of Schwerin and the timetable for the return trains. We had a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jill, I had a great time with you guys, too, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. Have fun on the cruise!
David DavisUnited States
This was our first Tour by Locals experience. There were 6 adults on our tour and we all gave Britt B 5 stars. She was excellent. Her friendly and enthusiastic personality, her excellent command of English, her solid knowledge of history, her flexibility before and during the tour, and her willingness to answer our zillion questions and to share her personal experiences about life in Germany made for a terrific 10 hour day. One of the highlights of our cruise. We highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, it was a great tour for Ronny and me, too. We really enjoyed the day with you all and loved to answer your zillion questions! It's always so much fun to guide interested people! I hope you'll come back to Rostock for another tour together! Best wishes, Britt
Carol CortesUnited States
She was wonderful very knowledgeable and professional we would highly recommend her to everyone she made our trip outstanding

Britt charmed us with her friendly and open approach. Willing to adapt at all times to our interests and needs she was knowledgeable, interesting and well organised. She made our visit to Rostock a real pleasure
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Geoffrey, thanks a lot for your nice comment. I enjoyed having you and your family on this tour. I learned a lot from you about history and other aspects. You'd be a great Tours by Locals guide, too! Best wishes for you all, Britt

The tour was out of this world. Britt and Driver did a wonderful job. She took use to old farm house and school and two villas with amazing people. Britt made use feel like family. Great Job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kristen, we had a great day with you all! You were a wonderful group! We'll keep you in our hearts and hope that you will return to Rostock for another tour!
Ellen WeitzmanUnited States
Britt was fabulous! She has a delightful, upbeat personality and it's obvious from the moment you meet her that you will truly enjoy your day. We saw a part of Rostock very few see in the personally designed handicrafts tour she arranged for us. Britt was knowledgeable and always ready to make changes to accommodate our interests and needs. She delivered everything we asked for and more. This was by far our favorite tour on our 10 day Baltic cruise and Britt, our favorite guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen, thanks so much for your great comment! I had the most wonderful time with all of you and I'm glad that you were the first to book my Handicrafts Tour. I have the next tour ready for you and I hope that I'll see you again soon! Best wishes, Britt
Howard RosenUnited States
In a word, "Excellent". Britt was prepared and knowledgeable. We were very pleased with the experience, and could not have chosen a better guide to help us see Rostock.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Howard, I really enjoyed the tour with you and I hope that I'll see you both again on your next Europe trip! Best wishes, Britt

Our tour to Striggow, Germany from the Warnemunde cruise port was very well done -- a 5+ in every regard. Both the tour guide, Britt, and Ronnie the driver were very professional and well informed of the area we were touring. We would definitely use T-B-L services if other opportunities arise and will recommend both T-B-L and the Britt-Ronnie team to other travelers to Warnemunde. Keith and Carol Striggow
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith and Carol, it was a pleasure for us, too, to guide you. We will certainly remember you and hope to see you again sometime on another trip to Germany. Best wishes Britt and Ronny
Flor AguilarUnited States
Britt went all the way to provide a fantastic service! We strongly recommend her services in the Warnemuende area!
Linda GrossLos Angeles, CA, United States
Me and my friends spent a lovely, informative day with Britt as our guide in the Rostock area. Britt was pleasant and knowledgeable. She was also very flexible and accommodating to our special requirements. I strongly recommend Britt to anyone who wants to enjoy the tour and learn about the history, people and country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a wonderful day with you and I'm really happy that you enjoyed the tour. There is a lot more to see here, so maybe you'll decide to come back one day. It would be great!
Lorraine LauUnited States
Our group had a very relaxing, enjoyable & pleasant Sunday visit because of our ToursByLocal guide. We would not have seen or learned as much as we did without her. Our visit made us want to visit even more of Germany next time. Highly recommend Britt as a guide: very knowledgeable, responsive, pleasant. Thank you Britt for a great visit!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorraine, thanks a lot for your comment. I really enjoyed the morning in Rostock with all of you, too. Hope to see you again on your next trip to Germany!
