The Hop on Hop off tour was excellent value for money. The sights of Berlin are quite spread out but the buses came regularly and the commentary was good. However, there were some blank spots in the commentary(when we weren't passing interesting sights) that could have been filled with some additional facts about Berlin
The DDR museum was a very popular museum and I can see why. There were lots of interesting displays telling the 20+ year history of the wall. Well done to the folks who have both preserved the history and honoured the people who fought for change - I certainly learned something!
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
This was a great opportunity to see a spectacular piece of St Petersburg's history. The tour group was small (just the six of us) and the guide and driver were very friendly and helpful. Lida was well informed so gave us lots of good information. The only downside was it was a bit short. The others on the tour were from a cruise ship and there was a delay in them getting clearance to leave the ship. This had the unfortunate effect of cutting short our time at Peterhof as they needed to head back to complete the rest of their schedule in the afternoon and we had only booked Peterhof. An extra 30-40 minutes at the gardens would have been appreciated.
