An excellent evening! Dinner was truly delicious. The string orchestra superb! Everything was beautifully presented in wonderful surroundings. Well done The Orangery at Charlottenburg Schloss and the catering department of The Marriott. A memorable evening.
The first half of the tour was a huge disappointment. I literally spent 2 hours trying to locate where to pick up my tickets for the boat cruise. There were no tickets to pick up at the small orangery. No one there even knew what I was talking about. I was then directed to go to the boat docks by the bridge. There was no clear signage of which boat tour I was assigned to. I then went to another area of the Charlottenburg Schloss for assistance. They kindly called the small Orangery to try to sort it out. I finally sorted it out on my own, received a voucher at the correct place, then got on a boat that offered the tour only in German, not the English tour with headsets that I paid for. There was no clear signage on the boat indicating English guided tours were available so I sat through the tour without any narration. I definitely did not get what I paid for and would not recommend this portion of the tour. The dinner and concert turned out to be a far better experience. Very enjoyable. Bottom line, improve access for securing tickets to events and provide some type of signage. There was no Viator representative available and my phone call to your office while in Germany was a lost cause. The number printed on my e voucher was invalid. Urgh!!!!!!!!!!!
The walk to Charlottenburg along the river was delightful and the tour of the palace worth making time for. When we emerged from the Palace the extensive Christmas Market was in full swing and most enjoyable. We felt a little casually dressed for the formal dinner and concert that was much enjoyed. In all a very good day out.
It was the best day we had in Berlin, the cruise took in all the places of interest and the dinner and concert at Charlottenburg Palace just took my breath way. The food was excellent and the concert the same. A great day and night.
We were delighted with our 'night out' at Charlottenburg Palace. The dinner, albeit not very generous in size, was very enjoyable and the staff effiecient and friendly. The musical performance was excellent! We felt the evening was created with a lot of thought and care, unlike some other tourist focused entertainment. The huge hall set up for our evening meal was rather too big for the amount of guests and could do with perhaps some seperate sectioning off to make it a more cosy. Otherwise everything was just fine and we would recommend this tour to anyone interested in a unique dining and music experience.
We stayed in the ibis styles hotel in Alexander Platz very near the bus stop so it was very convenient.
a great way to see Berlin quickly . Berlin was a lovely city i wish we had more time there. this was the best route for the on off bus as it was the only one to go to charlottenburg palace. which we got onff and saw very lovely. Would recommend it hightly

An exceptional visit..........we fly from NYC to Berlin to enjoy this unique experience. This last one maintains the skill of all involved over the years. The only complaint is the limited direct flights - NEVER the Schloss.
This time, we collected a Charlottenburg umbrella to show all here in NYC where er have been.

Had a great evening at Schloss Charlottenburg. After a warm welcome we were guided to our table. Atmosphere in dining area is very nice. Good lighting, friendly and efficient service. The quality of the food however is very average. Don't expect a fine dining experience. The music performance after the dinner was impressive. All together it was a fun evening. We booked A rank tickets and based on the quality of the food (especially taking into consideration that beverages were not included) we think the tickets are overpriced.
The Evening at the Charlottenburg Palace was an amazing experience. The staff were welcoming, the meal exceeded my expectations, and the quality of the concert was outstanding! What completely ruined our evening was the failure of Viator to provide the correct information on the online ticket. We paid for the VIP package, however, this reservation never found its way to the staff at Charlottenburg. They informed us that we could only attend the concert, and if there was room, they would set up a table for us so we could eat the 3-course meal we had already paid for. Needless to say, this presented a very embarrassing situation for us.. In addition, they were going to charge us 35 Euros per person for the meal, again, double charging us. After dinner, the staff presented us with a bill for our beverages only. Luckily the Charlottenburg staff realized that we had indeed paid for the VIP package and provided services accordingly. Based on this experience, we will NEVER use Viator again and caution our family and friends about what might happen to them if they use your service.
How many times in our lives we will have the opportunity to have dinner in the Orangerie of a Palace like Charlottenburg ? This was charming to be there, plus the dinner was excellent: "delicatesse". Than we moved to the other room where the concert took place. We think that the "ambiance" was more important than what we ate or heard... hardly recommend !
We had a most wonderful, romantic night at the Charlottenburg Palace! Unfortunately because of time restraints we did not get to do the tour, but thoroughly enjoyed the delicious dinner and the beautiful concert! It was indeed an evening to remember!
An evening at Charlottenburg was great. Very good food, very organized, great music. We loved it.
"An Evening at the Charlottenburg palace Dinner and Concert" definitely was 5 star. The setting and performances both in the dining and music halls were excellent . The servers were especially pleasant. Plus, the affair was well run, with very little dead time
between dinner and the concert. If I had to make any complaint, it would be that the food, though quite good, was not up to the level of the rest of the activities. I would heartily recommend this tour to anyone visiting Berlin.
The whole occasion at the Charlottenburg dinner and concert was truly delightful. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Our visit to the charlottenburg palace was an experience we very much enjoyed, it was a surprise for my husbands birthday and felt that although it wasnt cheap it was well worth it.
Firstly though I would suggest that you make the most of your palace tour by arriving early so that you have at least 2 hours to do the self guided tour easily before arriving at the Orangery for your meal.
We felt the waiting time for your meal was a little to long as the staff were concentrating on selling drinks. (I asked for a glass of tap water)before before ordering a drink and having my meal and was told they did not have any tap water and I would have to buy a bottle of water, yet later in the evening I seen a jug of water on the bar and on asking found this was drinking water and was offered a glass. I wasnt very happy about this as they told me a deliberate lie so I would buy water.
My husband and I feel that we paid a reasonable price for a lovely meal and a wonderful concert afterwards and would recommend anyone to go, just make sure you get tap water if thats what you want.

The only real thing I would criticise is that there wasnt any real atmosphere in the dining area, there should have been some pleasant music playing.
Although the audio is taped in a variety of individual languages(another company offers live commentary in both German and English), the bus covered all the major sights at a leisurely pace with convenient stops. The fee is very economical when you consider a taxi from Alexenderplatz to Potsdammerplatz can be 15 euros. I bought a second day hop-on/hop-off ticket just for the cost effectiveness of getting to Charlottenburg Palace and the two museums located across the street.

Brandenburg Gate and the Jewish Memorial was my favourite stop followed by the Charlottenburg Palace!

It was a delight afternoon and evening at the Charlottenburg Palace. We enjoyed the palace tour, the dinner similar to what the king would have eaten and the evening concert. The evening setting was a reminder of how things may have been in days of long ago.
My husband and I went to dinner and concert in Charlottenburg Palace on the last night of a four night trip to Berlin .We can honestly say it was the highlight of our visit. The staff were friendly, the music and operatic singing excellent, and the setting rather grand. It is well worth a visit
The concert at Charlottenburg Palace was one of the highlights of our trip. The music was performed beautifully, the audience shared our love for the selections, and the setting was intimate and authentic. I would definitely recommend this concert to anyone traveling to Berlin.
I went to the evening at the Charlottenburg Palace, which included the meal and concert. Have to say from start to finish it was a wonderful experience. I would telling people to go on this night out. If back in Berlin - I would book to go again. It's just a must do.
Charlottenburg Palace was certainly an appropriate venue for this event. The palace itself is well worth seeing. The food was OK but not reflective in quantity or quality of the price, perhaps with the exception of a very fine dessert. As for the concert, it was excellent, particularly the flautist and the soprano. They were top quality performers. The overall impression is that it was a bit kitschy, mainly because of the costumes.
The evening at Charlottenburg Palace was the highlight of our trip. Berlin is now such a new city that it nice to see what things were like before all the debacles of the 20th century.
