North Zealand Tour – 7 Hours
Set off on an enjoyable narrated tour to Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød.

It now serves as the National Museum of History and is best known for its outstanding collection of portraits, the largest of its kind in Denmark.

Malmö and Lund – 7 Hours

Malmö
is Sweden’s third-largest city. Here, Scandinavia's tallest building twists its way skyward, gazing down over the vast Öresund bridge – both modern engineering marvels that reflect multicultural Malmö's progressive outlook.
Focusing on the area around Stortorget (the town square) and lively Lilla Torget (the little square) Malmö's Old Town is a gorgeous warren of cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses.
Located about 2.5km northwest of the Old Town, buzzing, bayside Västra Hamnen represents the modern face of Malmö. It's a popular spot to stroll, sip coffee and browse boutiques, but mostly people come to marvel at the Öresund bridge and the Turning Torso
After Malmö we continue to Lund, founded by the Danes around 1000 AD and once the seat of the largest archbishopric in Europe, Lund is the second-oldest city in Sweden. It's also one of its loveliest, surrounded by beech trees and glowing with an impressive architectural legacy. Its magnificent, medieval old town is centered on its strikingly beautiful cathedral. Radiating around it is the country's oldest, most prestigious university (c 1666). Perhaps ironically, the university keeps Lund young, its vibrant, engaged youth driving a lively arts and culinary scene.

Copenhagen Bicycle tour – 3 Hours


If you want to get out and see the most of Copenhagen, a bike tour is a great choice. Be part of this tour and experience Copenhagen on two wheels as your guide will lead you around the city and to its sights in style.

The Danish cycle-culture is as old as the bicycle itself. Copenhageners have used bicycles to transport themselves to and from work since the 1880s. Back then, commuting by bike was the fastest, easiest and most environmentally friendly way to move around the city – and it still is. Copenhagen got its first bike lane in 1910 but most parts of the current network of bike lanes have been established within the last 25 years. Today 50% of the Copenhageners choose to commute by bike every day. Most of them do it all year round – rain, hail, snow or sunshine.

?During the tour you will see some of the famous landmarks of Copenhagen which include the beautiful Tivoli Gardens, The City Hall, Christiansborg Castle, The Royal Library, The Old Stock Exchange, Christianshavn, Our Saviours Church, The Opera, The National Bank,The Kings Square, Nyhavn, Amalienborg Castle, Langelinie, Kastellet, The little Mermaid, Rosenborg Castle, the Kings Garden, Strøget (The pedestrian street) to name a few.

Copenhagen Walking tour in the pursuit of Hygge – 4 Hours



Hygge is as Danish as pork roast and it goes far in illuminating the Danish soul. In essence hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life in the company of good people. The warm glow of candlelight is also hygge. Friends and family – well that’s hygge too. 

In the summertime, hygge is spending time in the sun, over a beer at the pier, a picnic in one of the city parks or just hanging out with good friends in one of Copenhagen’s many picturesque and historical back yards.

This 4-hour walking tour will highlight what hygge is all about. The tour starts by exploring the area around the Latin quarters an around the pedestrian street Strøget. 

The Latin Quarter is one of the most entertaining areas of Denmark's capital city, with a young-spirited undertone around the vicinity of Copenhagen University. The Latin Quarter is well known for its hang-out spots, alternative shopping and 17th-century architecture. 

Part of Danish hygge is having coffee with friends, so we will pick up a cup of coffee to go and a cinnamon roll at Sankt Peders Bakery, Copenhagen oldest bakery which was founded in 1652. 

We continue our tour by visiting the church of our Lady. The Copenhagen Cathedral in its present shape is an unpretentious building in Neo-Classicist style designed by the architect C.F. Hansen. It is situated close to the University of Copenhagen. An inside visit to the Round Tower in included. It was built as part of the Trinity Complex, named after the Holy Trinity and designed to accommodate three things: the observatory at the top of the tower, the library on the floor above the Trinity Church and of course the church itself. From its vantage point you will be able to peak into some of Copenhagen’s old, historical and cozy court yards before we head over to the Kings Garden, a popular green spot in the city center.

Copenhagen Jewish tour – 4 Hours


Although never large in numbers, the Jews in Denmark have nevertheless had a substantial and important influence on Danish culture and history. The sights on your tour includes The Round Tower with its golden Hebrew inscriptions; the statue of the world famous Danish Jewish Nobel Prize winner, Niels Bohr; and the Trinitatis church where the Torah scrolls from the Copenhagen Synagogue were hidden during the Second World War and were thus saved from destruction.

You will be informed of the present day Jewish community, its size and the various components that went into its making. The story of the five dark years under Nazi occupation, the deeds of the Danes and their king, Christian X will not be forgotten.

The Danish Jewish Museum, designed by world famous architect Daniel Libeskind, opened in 2004 and is a must-see for anyone interested in the Jews of Denmark. Located in the center of Copenhagen, the museum is a great starting point for exploring Jewish history in Denmark. The museum presents 400 years of Danish Jewish history, including the rescue and deportation of the Danish Jews in 1943. Copenhagen’s main synagogue, finished in 1833 is located in Krystalgade (Crystal Street) in the old part of Copenhagen and will be viewed from its exterior during the tour.

Christianshavn & Dragør tour – 4 Hours



Narrow cobbled streets, Michelin-starred restaurants and cozy cafes along the canal. Just across the bridge Knippels Bro is Christianshavn, officially part of Copenhagen city centre. Christianshavn is a much-desired area for Copenhageners to live. And it is easy to see why. It is central, full of bars and restaurants and has a unique maritime atmosphere. 

Dragør was founded in the 12th century, and it grew quickly as a fishing port. During the medieval period it was an international marketplace for Hanseatic merchants who came each year to buy herring. In the early sixteenth century, King Christian II invited a group of farmers from the Netherlands - at the time, a more agriculturally advanced nation than Denmark - to settle here to produce food for the royal household. You still find many Dutch names on the doors in Dragør. The town center is very idyllic with its characteristic yellow painted houses, thatched straw roofs and cobblestone streets, plus a charming harbor that is still an active fishing port.

Christiansborg Palace is located on the tiny island of Slotsholmen and houses Denmark's Parliament. It is the Prime Minister's residence and where the Queen of Denmark receives visiting royalty and heads of state in its royal reception rooms. In the Marble Hall, see the incredible, colorful tapestries displaying Danish and world history over the past 1,000 year.

You continue the excursion at the Cisternerne, an old water reservoir built in 1856-1859. The cisterns are located on Frederiksberg Hill, 31 meters above sea level, the highest point of the very flat Danish capital. The natural pressure, when the water was let out, allowed the water to travel all the way up into the new Copenhagen town houses contributing considerably to the improvement of the water supplied to locals.
 
In 1933 the cisterns stopped functioning as a water reservoir and for many decades these subterranean chambers were forgotten until 2013 when the building became a part of The Frederiksberg Museums.  Today, the old subterranean water reservoir of Soendermarken is home of events and art exhibitions that awaken all senses. The huge dripstone cave is sparsely lit, the climate is moist and cool, and a magical art experience is guaranteed.

In the Footsteps of Solidarity in Gdansk
Half day tour

In the late 1970s the city’s Lenin Shipyard saw the birth of the SOLIDARITY, the first independent trade union in the Eastern Block countries, which made Lech Walesa a household name and began the process of transformation across the entire region. 

We will visit the St Bridget’s Church, a record of the Solidarity period with the tombstone of the murdered priest Jerzy Popieuszko, a collection of crosses from the 1980-88 strikes and a door with bas-reliefs of scenes from Solidarity’s history.

Then will have a photo stop by the Monument to the Shipyard Workers, erected in memory of the workers killed in the riots of 1970 and will continue to the „Roads to freedom” exhibition, a moving tribute to the Solidarity movement. The exhibition is a real highlight. Its vestibule is a replica of primitive shop of the seventies, with not too many products to sell. The key place is the hall where the delegates of the strike committee and the representatives of Polish authorities signed first the post Second War history of Poland agreement between the representatives of the people of Poland and the communist authorities.

Everything is original here, just to mention: the table, chairs, boards with demands, historic ballpoint that Lech Walesa signed the agreement with etc. In one of the halls , the visitors can watch  moving documentary film, too.

A Pulsating Harbour - Gdansk/Gdynia/Sopot - Full Day Tour
A Pulsating Harbour - Tri-City Complex: Gdanks/Gdynia/Sopot
Gdansk, as fascinating and special city as one could hope to find anywhere, was once known as Danzig - name etched deep in European history. It is a major harbour, first German, then Hanseatic, Polish, Prussian, Free City and finally Polish. Desired by many, the city was often fought over. Indeed, it was the nearby Westerplatte that the first shots of history’s greatest war were fired in 1939. Later in the late 1970s the city’s Lenin Shipyard saw the birth of the Solidarity Trade Union, which made Lech Walesa a household name and began the process of transformation across the entire region. Gdansk has not forgotten its history. The lovingly restored buildings of the Old Town and waterfront provide picturesque and interesting surroundings, in which one may take a stroll, dine or shop for the city’s famous amber jewelry. In turn, the impressive Monument to Murdered Shipyard Workers gives the visitor a pause for thought about all that has happened since the 1970s.But further surprises await, for Gdansk is just the largest component of the Tri-City of Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. North-south development along the coast left beautiful and unspoiled woods and forests on hills just inland, and allows the visitor to travel smoothly from place to place by road or by local railway. Required stops for all include Gdynia, the lively naval, fishing and commercial port with its historical ships, beaches and the Oceanographic Museum; Sopot, an elegant beach resort of villas and hotels famous for its musical and cultural festivals; and Gdansk-Oliwa, a suburb boasting beautiful parks and a cathedral, whose world-famous organ Poland-largest entertains and entrances all who hear it. Lively, attractive, cultured, historical: the Gdansk area is as varied and eternally fascinating as the sea, which brought its fame and fortune.

Afterwards, drive to see the former Nazi Concentration Stutthof Camp established at the beginning of September 1939 is the oldest camp of mass-extermination in Poland. The first prisoners of camp thought for "desirable Polish elements" were representatives of Polish associations in Free City of Danzig. Within the 5 years of camp existance 110.000 mens, women and children were kept and almost 65.000 prisoners died as result of murdering in gas chambers, beating, hanging, torturing and making medical tests by Nazi mad scientists. Stutthof was freed at the beginning of May 1944 by troops of the Soviet Army.

Nowadays there is the National Museum of Stutthof established in 1962 including post-camp buildings, prisoners' barracks, gas chambers, crematory, gallows. There is also permament exhibition dedicated to prisoners of Stutthof inside post-camp buildings.

Tallinn Synagogue 

Established in 2007, Tallinn's Synagogue is by far the most modern house of worship in the city.
It was a long time coming. During World War II, the Jewish community that had existed in Tallinn was all but wiped out, and its Synagogue bombed. In the years following the war, a few native Jews returned to Tallinn, joined by many more Russian Jews, but the Soviet regime had outlawed any open observance of Judaism. It was only after Estonia regained independence in 1991 that a real Jewish religious community was re-established here.

Helsinki City tour – 3 Hours


Helsinki was founded in 1550 by the Swedish King Gustav Vasa. As a result of the war of 1808-1809, Sweden was forced to cede Finland to Russia. In 1812 Tsar Alexander declared Helsinki the capital of autonomous Finland. In 1917 the city was to become the capital of the independent Republic of Finland. In safeguarding its historical heritage, Helsinki has again and again been forced to reassess the past. Cultural influences from both East and West have molded the life of the city, which has nevertheless preserved an outlook on life that is inherently Finnish. Over the years the city has spread, and its population multiplied, yet nature is still close at hand - the sea and islands are dominant features of the landscape.
Among the most striking features of the Helsinki architecture are the largish areas built in a uniform style. The city thus has whole blocks and even districts representing Neoclassical, Art Nouveau, National Romantic, functional or modern architecture. The oldest area in Helsinki that has been preserved intact is the Senate Square. Reminiscent of St. Petersburg in its neoclassical style.
In the 1970s Helsinki acquired some important new public buildings - e.g. the Finlandia Hall, the City Theatre, the new National Opera, the official residence of the Finnish President and the Temppeliaukio Church - which are now important landmarks on the Helsinki street scene.
A city tour includes all essential sights in the city center including the Sibelius Park with the Sibelius Monument, an unusual steel monument from 1967, commemorating the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Pay a visit to Temppeliaukio Church (The Church in the Rock), completed in 1969 and carved out of a solid rock and topped with a copper dome.  Only the dome is visible from the outside. The pantheon-like interior is enhanced by the rugged granite walls and the copper-plated cupola. The excellent acoustics make this a favorite venue for concerts. Please note that inside visits to the Rock Church cannot be guaranteed due to religious services and holidays.

Helsinki Suomenlinna Fortress tour – 3 Hours


Built in the second half of the 18th century by Sweden on a group of islands located at the entrance of Helsinki's harbour, this fortress is an especially interesting example of European military architecture of the time. Suomenlinna, until 1918 Viapori (Finnish), or Sveaborg (Swedish), was an inhabited sea fortress built on six islands and which now forms part of the city of Helsinki, the capital of Finland.

Suomenlinna is a UNESCO World Heritage site and popular with tourists and locals. The guided walking tour takes you through the historic Susisaari and Kustaanmiekka areas and provides information on the colourful past of the fortress. The tour introduces, for example, the Great Courtyard and the dry dock, which once was one of the largest in the world.
The tour includes a return ferry service to / from Suomenlina Maritime Fortress, a guided tour with an official Suomenlina guide and an entrance to Suomenlinna Museum. You will meet the guide at Suomenlina Maritime Fortress, after disembarking the ferry. Depending on your accommodation in Helsinki, city transfers to and from the ferry port may need to be considered.

The original town plan from the Middle Ages, features the low, small houses, picturesque yards and narrow streets and forms a historically unique wooden town environment.
The symbols of Porvoo – the red warehouses on the riverbanks – tell tall tales of seafaring and trading. The guest marina and ferry dock at Jokiranta are humming with life, especially during the summer months.
The bridge at Aleksanterinkatu, completed in autumn 2004, and the newly restored Jokiranta area now encourage locals to take an evening walk and enjoy the latest improvements to the downtown area. Flower beds, fountains, cafés and sundecks have turned the shore into an attractive gathering place.

Sauna bathing is an essential part of Finnish culture and national identity. There are only 5,4 million Finns but 3,3 million saunas. Public saunas used to be common in bigger cities but now that most new apartments have sauna of their own, public saunas have decreased dramatically in number. There are only a couple remaining. As a sense of community is becoming a more and more important part of new urban culture, many new public saunas are being planned. 

The sauna is open to the public and has separate locker rooms and showers for men and women – however the sauna rooms and other facilities are open to everyone. Please remember that appropriate swimwear must be worn in the shared sauna room.

Helsinki Design tour - 6 hours



Helsinki offers you a unique and fascinating journey through the centuries and across cultures through its buildings and architecture. The city’s architecture is typified by Nordic minimalism and refinement, and with its modernism, functionalism it also encompasses the largest concentration of Art Nouveau buildings in Northern Europe. 

For many Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is synonymous with Finland with architecture and with design.
After qualifying as an architect from Helsinki Institute of Technology in 1921, Aalto set up his first architectural practice in Jyväskylä. His early works followed the tenets of Nordic Classicism, the predominant style at that time.

During the tour, pay a visit to Temppeliaukio Church (The Church in the Rock), completed in 1969 and carved out of a solid rock and topped with a copper dome.  Only the dome is visible from the outside. The pantheon-like interior is enhanced by the rugged granite walls and the copper-plated cupola. The excellent acoustics make this a favorite venue for concerts.

The Senate Square is dominated by four buildings designed by Carl Ludvig Engel between 1822 and 1852: Helsinki Cathedral, the Government Palace, the main building of the University of Helsinki and the National Library of Finland. 

The Central Railway Station was designed by Eliel Saarinen in 1909 and the station was opened in 1919. The station is mostly clad in Finnish granite, and its distinguishing features are its clock tower and the two pairs of statues holding the spherical lamps, lit at night-time, on either side of the main entrance.

The City Hall was designed by C.L. Engel as a hotel in 1833, the building has been the City Hall since the 1930s. The Helsinki coat-of-arms can be seen on the tympanum.

Stockholm Drottingholm Castle tour - 4 Hours


Drottningholm Palace
is on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. It is the best-preserved royal castle built in Sweden during the 1600’s and it is representative of all European architecture that was to follow.

The castle was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder and was clearly inspired by French architecture and since its construction many royals have left their mark on the palace. Hedvig Eleonora, Lovisa Ulrika and Gustav III left powerful examples of their style, especially in the decor of the reception rooms. Hedvig Eleonora’s state bedchamber was at the heart of their reception rooms in the 1600’s and was created by the country's foremost artists and craftsmen.
There is also a series of rooms that were decorated for Gustav III during the 1700’s which includes the Chinese saloon, a very chic trend at that time.

In 1991 Drottningholm Castle was included on UNESCO's World Heritage list of sites of outstanding universal value to humanity. The Royal family moved into the Drottningholm Palace in 1981 and still today the castle remains the primary residence of the King and Queen. The rooms in the castle's southern section are reserved for the royal couple.

Stockholm City tour – 5 Hours

Sweden’s magnificent capital Stockholm is a city renowned for its characteristic structure, built on 14 islands magnificently bathed by the waters of lake Mälaren. Your tour will introduce you to the most characteristic locations and the most architecturally significant buildings, the first of which is the imposing City Hall, the city's political centre and the location for the annual celebrations that follow the presentation of the Nobel Prizes.

Having admired its imposing exterior that is surrounded by water and topped with three golden crowns, the symbol of the kingdom of Sweden, you will visit the sumptuous Golden Hall whose walls are entirely covered with precious golden mosaics composed of over 19 million tiles.
 
Continuing on your itinerary takes you towards the green island of Djurgården with its numerous historic buildings, monuments, museums, galleries, an exciting theme park and a magnificent open-air museum.
 
While on the island, visit the museum of the Swedish warship ‘Vasa’, once considered one of the world’s largest and the pride of Sweden's mighty navy. The present Vasa Museum is built around the 17th century warship which sank in Stockholm's inner harbor on her maiden voyage in 1628. Its discovery in 1956 and subsequent salvage in 1961 is one of the most important events in marine archaeology. Painstakingly restored to much of its original magnificence, ‘Vasa’ represents an authentic piece of living history.
 
Stockholm's Old Town (Gamla Stan) is located on a small island in the very heart of the city. Within its bounds are a multitude of historical sights, including the Royal Palace, the Parliament, the House of Nobilities, as well as the world's longest established bank, the Bank of Sweden that was founded in 1656.

Uppsala and Sigtuna tour - 6 Hours


Uppsala is located 72 kilometres north of Stockholm and as early as the 6th century it was a political and religious centre. 
It was from here that the old pagan kings ruled. Legend has it that there was a splendid temple here that was decorated with gold.
The large historical Uppsala Cathedral was consecrated in 1435. Several famous scientists and kings have their chapels here. There is a fine museum in the north tower full of ecclesiastical textiles and gold and silver objects. In one of the cathedral's chapels lie the holy relics of Sweden's patron saint, St. Erik, in a gold Casket.
Uppsala University is the oldest University in Scandinavia. In the 17th and 18th centuries the university became a centre of research, mainly in the field of natural history. Many are the geniuses that have spread Uppsala's reputation worldwide and to date six Uppsala scientists have received the Nobel prize. The Gustavianum museum is housed in Uppsala University's oldest preserved building. Exhibited at the museum are the Augsburg Art Cabinet, discoveries from the Viking period, the history of the University of Uppsala, mummies and much more.
Sigtuna is a town north of Stockholm that sits beside Lake Mälaren, in the lush landscape of Uppland. The area prospered during the Viking Age, leaving a heritage of rune stones, graves and monuments, which to this day still stand in and around the town. Sigtuna is said to be home to the most rune stones in the world. They were erected during the Viking era to commemorate deceased men.
Sigtuna is Swedens first town and was founded in AD 980, as Christianity arrived, uniting Sweden as a single kingdom. With a royal mint and a bishop, Sigtuna was effectively the capital of Sweden until power shifted towards Stockholm and Uppsala in the 13th century. Three historic church ruins, St. Olof, St. Lars and St. Per, from the 12th and 13th century can be found in the medieval centre of Sigtuna. Here, you will also find the brick Church of Maria, which was built in 1247 as a Dominican monastery.
After three fires in the 17th century, Sigtuna was a ghost town for 250 years but was later revived in the 1910s as a nationalist project. The 18th century Town Hall can be found on Sweden's oldest street, Stora Gatan (over a thousand years old). It is allegedly the smallest town hall in Scandinavia and is nowadays used as a museum. At Stora Gatan, you will also find clusters of interesting little shops selling fashion, design and local handicrafts.

Stockholm Jewish tour – 5 Hours



The northern city of Stockholm is one of the most stunning capitals in the world. It is situated on 14 islands and is surrounded by water so clean that you can swim and fish right in the heart of the city.  

Sweden’s Jewish community holds a very unique place in the continental European Diaspora. During the mid-20th century, Sweden was one of the only European countries to actually witness a growth in their Jewish population. During the Second World War there was no systematic persecution by the neutral Swedish government, and, in fact, the country gave asylum to thousands of Jewish refugees from Denmark and Norway. The community has continued to exist relatively undisturbed over the generations. 

Today, the Swedish Jewish community is the largest in Scandinavia and is primarily composed of descendants of pre-war refugees and Shoah survivors who arrived after the war. Most Swedish Jews live in the capital Stockholm. It is a unified community and all three synagogues in the city belong to the same organization. 

Today’s first stop is at the impressive panoramic viewpoint Fjallgatan. Here you have the opportunity to take some photographs while your guide points out the main sights of the city before your scenic drive towards Gamla Stan (Old Town). 

Here you will get an insight into the long lasting German influence and the many attacks of the Danes during the Middle Ages. Due to the Swedish neutrality nothing has been destroyed here in the last 400 years. You will experience the narrow cobblestone streets of the Old Town, passing the Royal Palace and on to Tyska Brunnsplan square, named after the German community that once occupied this area. Here stands the building which was Stockholm's first synagogue, founded in 1790. 

Continue towards the Conservative Synagogue, otherwise known as the Great Synagogue. Inaugurated in 1870, it still has an active congregation with more than one thousand members. The Great Synagogue is built in an Assyrian style whose organ resembles an open Torah scroll.

Leaving the Synagogue you pass by the beautiful Jewish cemetery whilst taking in the main sights and highlights of the city.

The Battle of Berlin and the World War II Tour

Berlin Reichstag, Germany

After dreadful years in which the Nazi war machine killed over 10 million Soviet soldiers and over 11 million civilians, the Red Army reached the banks of the Oder River, 50 kilometres east of Berlin. In early April 1945, 1.3 million Soviet Soldiers found a severely weakened Nazi defence, consisting mainly of demoralized and poorly equipped soldiers, old men of the Volkssturm (Home Guard) and young boys of the Hitler Youth. They descended upon Berlin for what Marshall Georgy K. Zukhov called their ”final hour of vengeance.”

The Battle of Berlin and WW II Tour follows the crucial events and details of the battle, including troop movements, the master strategies of leading generals, and the experiences of infantry soldiers and Berlin civilians.

You will make stops at Reichstag, the place of the former Hitler’s bunker, the flak tower in Berlin-Gesundbrunnen and the German Resistance Memorial Center – Bendler Block

Berlin: Hackescher Markt and its courtyards – where tradition meets today’s lifestyle

Berlin Hackescher Markt, Germany

The Hackescher Markt is an extensive old town district which only can be found once in Berlin.

Historically the development of the courtyards is closely connected with the history and the urban development of Berlin. In the 17th century this area was outside the city walls. As at that time it was forbidden to store hay and straw inside the city walls, more and more barns were built. The historical name for the nowadays “Hackescher Markt” was and in some areas still is “Scheunenviertel”. The inflow of Jewish and french immigrants gave the district a cosmopolitan diversity that still exists today. The first synagogue and the jewish cemetery were built here.  


Nowadays the streets around the Hackescher Markt with its eight interlinked courtyards between Rosenthaler Street and Sophia Street are not only a tourist magnet, but still represent the cosmopolitan and modern way of life. Explore on a guided tour the diversity of this place combined with a stroll around the different galleries. 
Berlin Boros Collection

When Christian Boros acquired this Nazi-era bunker in 2003, he gained not only a 3,000-square-meter space for his modern art collection but also a piece of Berlin’s colourful history.

Built in 1942 to protect passengers of nearby Friedrichstrasse Station from aerial bombardment, the concrete structure found a sweeter post war use storing tropical fruit for East Berliners, who dubbed it the “Banana Bunker.” It then had a brief stint as a hardcore techno and fetish club, until city authorities shut it down in 1996.

 

Boros converted the bunker to exhibit his extensive collection featuring artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Damien Hirst, Terence Koh and more. In 2008, following five years of difficult renovations - reinforced concrete walls had to be cut out with diamond-tipped drills and broken up before being removed by hand - Boros and his wife took up residence in the penthouse and opened the bunker’s heavy steel doors to the public.

Optional Private Excursions

Below are just some samples of the private shore excursions we can arrange for you. Let us personalize your experience!

Belfast - Tour of Antrim Coast - Full Day Tour
Depart Port by luxury vehicle accompanied by local professional guide.  Leaving Belfast behind, head north on a scenic, northbound journey.  Travel to the port of Larne and then join the spectacular Antrim Coast road.  Onwards through the villages of Ballygalley and Glenarm to Cushendall, know as the "Capital of the Glens" and Ballycastle, host of the annual 'Oul Lammas Fair'.

Next, travel to the famouse village of Bushmills, which is home to the legendary Bushmills Whiskey Distillery.

Enjoy a 2 Course lunch with tea/coffee in the wonderful Distillers Arms restaurant.

Situated in the most north-easterly tip of Ireland and first built by Richard de Burgh, Earl of Ulster in the 13th century, the ruins of the castle are a huge tourist attraction.

The castle is surrounded by terrifyingly steep drops at either side; these would have been essential features to the Vikings and early Christians, who were drawn to this magnificent place where an early Irish ring-fort once stood. It is situated on a 100 foot high basalt stack with a sea cave underneath. The earliest features of the castle, the two large drum towers, about nine metres in diameter, can still be seen on the eastern side.

High Line, Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District
Until 1958, the building that houses the famous Chelsea Market was a Nabisco factory, and less than 20 years ago, it was used for light manufacturing. 
Fifteen years ago, the area known as the Meatpacking District was known for just that, plus some really “interesting” night clubs, and many used the street as a place to do business.
 
About 10 years ago, the park called the High Line was an abandoned elevated railway and the park was only on paper.
 
Today, the area is one of the hottest in Manhattan. Chelsea Market has some of the best food purveyors in the city. Bring your appetite and get something to eat. The Meatpacking District, with its cobblestone streets, still has some grit and its checkered past along with all kinds of new development mixed in. You’ll learn a lot from your guide who will point out things only a professional will know. The most important addition to the area has been the High Line Park, which went from urban decay to metropolitan oasis. Walk a portion of the High Line with your guide as she tells you its secrets and stories.

 
Please note that this tour is for parties of five or less.

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States.  It is one of the most universal symbols of political freedom and democracy.  The views of the Statue from the water are breathtaking and reminiscent of what immigrants first saw entering New York Harbor.

Ellis Island
Ellis Island opened in 1892 and was the entry point for European immigrants for more than 60 years.  Twelve million people passed through the halls that are now the historical Ellis Island Immigration Museum.  Walk through the Great Hall as the new Americans once did – ancestors of more than half of the US population.  You can search for your family surname on the American Immigrant wall of Honor.  With over 600,000 entries, it is the longest wall of names in the world.

Williamsburg & Greenpoint
In North Brooklyn, Williamsburg and adjacent Greenpoint offer a rich array of charms and curiosities, mixing history and modernity. Once industrial neighborhoods and immigrant centers, they have boomed in recent years, thanks to civic improvement and proximity to Manhattan. They offer waterfront views of Manhattan, quirky shopping, delicious food, and various arts. 
Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s best-known “hipster” zone, features the longtime home of the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn’s new hotel district (including a reclaimed factory), and bustling shopping streets, from homemade crafts to the borough’s first Apple store. In South Williamsburg, an enclave of ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jews maintains 19th century traditions with a 21st century twist.
 
Adjacent Greenpoint contains a handsome historic district and several historic churches. While Williamsburg-style gentrification has drifted north, bringing new shopping, food, and nightspots, Greenpoint maintains an enduring Polish presence and has two small, lovely parks.

Coney Island and Little Odessa
Drive to Manhattan Beach, the more upscale neighborhood of Brighton Beach, with its beautiful single-family homes form the late 19th century.  You will begin to think that you are no longer in New York, but a Russian city.  The shops’ signage is in a foreign alphabet and the markets are full of Russian-made goods.  Besides the ethnic attraction, it was also the childhood home of writer/producer/comedian Mel Brooks and playwright Neil Simon, who put the neighborhood on the stage with Brighton Beach Memoirs.  Your guide will take you through the historic sights and shops. 

As you enter the ever-popular, world-famous Coney Island, the first thing you will notice is that it’s not an island.  Coney Island was connected to Brooklyn with landfill in 1920; now it is best known for hotdogs, amusement parks, and the Cyclone.  Coney Island is full of iconic history that has created the legend it’s become.  You will walk along the famous boardwalk and even dip a toe in the Atlantic Ocean.

New York City: Brooklyn Essential Walking Tour - 4 Hours

Brooklyn Essential Walking Tour


Highlights:


Brooklyn Bridge - Opened in 1883 after thirteen years of construction and was built across the East River to connect Manhattan with the then-rural city of Brooklyn. From the beginning, the bridge’s designer, John A. Roebling, planned not just a structure of convenience, but a great work of art that would stand the test of time. The Brooklyn Bridge is a fully accessible bridge, with a center lane above traffic open to bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Your fully guided tour takes you on a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge; a walk taken every day by commuters and tourists, and during times of crisis, such as after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11. Brooklyn Heights- One of the best-kept secrets of the City of New York is Brooklyn Heights, a beautiful district in Brooklyn. Some historians call it one of the first suburbs in the United States. Brooklyn Heights is unique as it radiates a hometown atmosphere while situated right next door to one of the most recognizable cityscapes in the world. In 1964, Brooklyn Heights was the first area designated as a New York City Historic District. You will understand why as you see Federal style homes built in the 1820s, brick and brownstone homes from the 1830s and 1840s, and two Italianate mansions that overlook Pierrepont Street. DUMBO- DUMBO’s name is an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, and the span gives the creatively oriented neighborhood much of its character—as do cobblestone streets and dramatic architecture left over from its industrial days. Today, DUMBO features art galleries, independent bookshops, boutiques, confectionaries, and waterfront parks where locals and tourists thrive. DUMBO offers some of the best photo ops including the Empire State Building framed by the Manhattan Bridge.

  • 4-Hours with a private guide.

New York City: The Life of Alexander Hamilton Private Tour - 5 Hours
Alexander Hamilton was a real New Yorker. Immigrant, broke when he got here, worked hard, lived in multiple neighborhoods, spoke his mind, always hustling for a better job, and knew he was better than everyone else. You can trace his life through the streets of Manhattan. From the only house he owned in Harlem, to where he worked as the Secretary of Treasury in the Financial District. His widow Eliza lived in a townhouse in East Village which still stands and there are traces of Aaron Burr, the “damn fool that shot Hamilton”, all over the borough. See the spot of the original building where Hamilton, Jefferson and Madison negotiated the Compromise of 1790 (“room where it happened”) and the university where he got a scholarship (not where he punched the bursar). This tour is a must for any Hamilton fan, history buff or anyone who wants to be cool at the next cocktail or tea party.  

Tour will include the following sights:
  • Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House
  • Hamilton Grange National Memorial
  • The Morris-Jumel Mansion (Friday through Sunday only)
  • Trinity Church
 
This tour can be extended to six to seven hours to include the spot in Weehawken, NJ where the famous duel that ended Hamilton’s life took place.

The Floor is Yours at Madison Square Garden
When you look at the court from close up, and by close up I mean when you are walking on it, it does not seem that big.  You say to yourself, “I can run up and down this thing.”  You take a few shots, a few go in, some hit the rim, a few “wow, that was bad” shots.  You are warming up because in just a few minutes a pro basketball player is going to walk onto the court and you want to be able to show him what you got.  When he gets there you give him the look that you are ready and his gives you the eye and says, “Take the shot.”  Swish, and you feel like a million bucks.  So now the two of you are on the court and he is showing you the moves of the game; how to dunk, free throw, and guard.  Never did you think you would get a chance to be at Madison Square Garden, playing with one of your heroes.  You make it last as long as you can, then get some photos with you and your temporary basketball coach.  Do not forget that last free throw, and then let him sign the ball, because you are taking it home.

SoHo
Like most of the developing city in the early years, SoHo (which stands for South of Houston Street – and by the way, it’s pronounced How-ston) started as a small village.  Over time, the neighborhood went from the wealthiest, to the most industrial, to a slum called “Hell’s 100 acres.”  Now it is back to trendy again.  SoHo is one of the most stylish neighborhoods in New York City, with clues of its past around every corner.  Several of its cast iron buildings built in the mid-1800s still stand.  As you explore the area, you will get the feel of its many cobblestone streets.  When artists arrived in SoHo in the 1970s, they began the revival of the neighborhood.  You’ll visit two of SoHo’s famed art galleries, including the Earth Room.  Next to SoHo is NoLIta – which is Northern Little Italy.  The area is home to the old St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  One story in particular your guide will impart is the 1799 murder of Elma Sands, the “Ghost of Spring Street.”

The Origins of NYC Sightseeing Program
New York traces its rich history to Lower Manhattan, the meeting point of the Hudson River and the East River.  Originally named Nieuw (New) Amsterdam, New York City began as a small Dutch settlement in what is now known as Lower Manhattan.  Broadway, which was then called Heere Straat (Gentleman Street), was nothing but a small road.  Wall Street actually had a wall back in 1653 to protect the settlers from attacks.  As the city grew, so did the nation.  New York was the first capital of the United States and the spot where George Washington was inaugurated is marked by his statue.  Over the years, Lower Manhattan has become the financial capital of the world.  Today, the streets are teeming with people and filled with stories of New York’s past, present, and future.  As you explore Lower Manhattan with your guide, you’ll see the 9/11 Memorial, St. Paul’s Chapel, Battery Park, and Trinity Church as you learn about the history of the Native Americans, Dutch, and English.

New York's Big Three
Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park: these three sights make up one of the most popular triangles in the world. All within walking distance of one another, they are three of the most visited places in New York City. This walking tour will take you to each location, showing specific highlights and pointing out well-known locations from television and motion pictures. 

Central Park
More than just a green space in the middle of Manhattan Island, it is an 843-acre oasis, 150 years in the making, and a favorite retreat for New Yorkers. An essential part of the urban landscape, Central Park is a place no New Yorker can live without. You will follow your guide on the park’s winding paths, over the bridges, through the tunnels, and learn how the architects Olmsted and Vaux created New York’s “backyard”.
 
Times Square
Also known as “The Great White Way”, located at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Don’t let the name fool you, it is actually more a triangle of intersecting major streets. It got its name when the NY Times building was built there, long before it was a showcase of neon lights and jumbo digital screens, and the name has stuck ever since.
 
Rockefeller Center
Located in the center of Midtown Manhattan and a complex of 19 commercial buildings, it is NYC’s top tourist attraction. John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s resolution to make Rockefeller Center contemporary and innovative can be felt with every artwork and attraction.

Chinatown on the other hand is still growing and when you enter it, it is like being transported to another country. All the signs are in Chinese, the languages spoken are all dialects of Chinese, the produce and food shops sell many items you will not recognize. It is a submersion into another culture. Join your guide on this walking tour and find out what is below the surface that makes both these neighborhoods even more unique and intriguing.

  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required
    Special arrangements can be made for guests requiring diabetic, gluten-free, lactose-free, kosher, vegetarian, and vegan meals. Other diets must be requested for approval and, in some cases, may require additional medical documentation.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs
    Guests with any medical condition(s) or special needs that may require treatment or attention or accommodation during the voyage, or needing to travel with medical apparatus, including wheelchairs, motorized scooters, oxygen therapy, etc., must advise Oceania Cruises in writing at the time of deposit. Please note some ports of call may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility and in such cases, may disallow debarkation with a wheelchair or motorized scooter or for any individual with limited mobility. Oceania Cruises is unable to accommodate women past their sixth month of pregnancy. Oceania Cruises has the right to refuse or revoke passage to anyone who, in its judgment, is in a physical, mental or emotional condition unfit for travel or whose comfort onboard may be compromised due to situations beyond the care that can be provided by Oceania Cruises. Oceania Cruises will under appropriate circumstances permit its guests to use special equipment such as those noted above, which satisfy the criteria stated in the Oceania Cruises' Policy Statement.

    Wheelchair Assistance

    If a guest needs wheelchair assistance at embarkation and debarkation, the request must be communicated prior to departure so appropriate arrangements for assistance can be made. If a guest is requesting wheelchair assistance at the airport, they must contact the airline directly.

    Oxygen

    Oceania Cruises does not provide oxygen for guests. If a guest requires oxygen, they will need to bring it on board with them. The guest may contact a supply company that will deliver it to the ship for them. Oceania will need to know how many containers, what size they are, and the type. Liquid oxygen is not allowed on board Oceania ships at any time. If the guest needs oxygen for their flights, they will need to arrange it directly with the airline.

    Delivery of Medical Equipment

    Having medical equipment brought on board is handled on a case by case basis. Oceania Cruises must receive the full dimensions, description of the equipment, name of the delivery company, and all other pertinent information prior to the cruise.

  • Currency
    Oceania Cruises uses a cashless system based on the U.S. dollar. All onboard purchases and services, other than the casino, will be billed to an onboard account. You will be required to register an American Express, Mastercard, or Visa card during the embarkation process.
