The ride gives an incredible insight into this city, densely layered with such rich and intense history on every corner and beneath every cobblestone, from Gendarmenmarkt Cathedrals in the Huguenot French quarter to Checkpoint Charlie and one of the last remaining sections of the wall. The highlight for me is our ride through Tiergarten, past the Berlin Zoo and a lunch break at the gorgeous Schluesen Kreug, along the canal next to one of the locks. We pass the angel of victory, and head back into the city via the Reichstag, where our group poses for a commemorative wave... A great way to experience Berlin, especially for those with limited time!

The tour was a good walking tour of central Berlin and the guide provided lots of historical and current information and stories. It was a very large group but the guide did a good job of speaking loudly in quiet locations.
I did not rate the tour as 5 stars because the description on viator is significantly incorrect. Contrary to the description on the viator site, the tour does NOT include mention of the State Library, passing the Russian Embassy, reference to the 1920's cabaret mile, seeing Potsdammer Platz, or visiting a ghost u-bahn station (which we had been looking forward to seeing). The tour ends at the Holocaust memorial and not at Gendarmenmarkt (which messed up our plans for the rest of the day). Obviously viator is a tour wholesaler, selling tours done by other companies, but they should make the effort to get the description correct.

We enjoyed the Christmas lights tour and would recommend this tour as a great way to see the city at night. We managed to stop at one market. Would have been great to stop at Berlin's best Christmas Market - Gendarmenmarkt.
