My Review

View was good. We still had to wait in line a few minutes, but it was survivable

Potsdam Half-Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Audio guide on the bus tour was minimal. But the real guide was much better and the personal tour of the palace was totally worth doing

Tour/Activity

'An Evening at Charlottenburg Palace' Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert by the Berlin Residence Orchestra

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The dinner does not include any drinks or even tap water. They told us at the door that tap water would be provided, but that was a lie and despite our protest were charged and obscene amount of cash for bottled water. The main course was a small portion and rather bland. After the show we went for some fast food because we were still hungry. Palace tour okay, expect to spend an hour or two on it, but probably not more. Pay toilet only on the tour or wear a diaper. There is a free toilet in the dining room if you can wait that long. The auditorium is not suitable for shows! It is very long with a flat floor so people in front of you will block your view. I am tall, and had difficulties seeing it from the 5th row because of people in front of us. I don't think people in the back of that long room can see anything. Maybe stand up and bring a telescope? No photos allowed in the palace or during the performance. Royal or not, this is a really bad deal! Please do not waste your time or money on this. Europe is full of Palaces and castles. Visit a different one, this was the worst.

Berlin's Infamous Third Reich Sites Half-Day Walking Tour

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour visits many of same places that the Discover Berlin half day walking tour also covers. However it is a completely different narration. Rather than the humorous and fun tour, you are given a highly detailed darker history. Anyone who is into WWII history would probably love this tour so if you are aiming for that, do this. Otherwise, if you just want a fun and quick way to see the town, then probably the Discover Berlin walking tour is more for you. But unless you want to see the same land marks twice, you probably don't need to do both of these.

My Review

It was good, up until our guide mysteriously disappeared about 3/4 into the tour and left the group in a state of confusion. When someone got through on the phone to the company, they were told that the tour was over and the guide had moved onto his next tour. I guess no closure for us.

My Review

The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. If not for him the tour would had been a total bust. The driver was absolutely horrible. His heavy use of the gas and break pedals got us all sick. He couldn't keep the van at a steady speed even when there was nobody in front of him. The provided lunch was decent and served at a nice restaurant, though the server messed up an order and was reluctant to fix it. Our guide stepped in and got it corrected. Even with lunch, the tour felt expensive for what we got, but I guess that's the price of being guided around rather than finding our own way. I'd say if you have time and don't mind doing a little research on your own, use the public transportation to see the same places and save a ton of cash.
