    The bus tour was excellent, I was so pleased that I purchased the tickets before our trip to Berlin. I bought the two day tour that included the boat trip. The stops on route were perfectly situated and we were able to see all of the sites that I had planned to visit. The first day we hopped on and hopped off at stops on route the second day we did similar but decided to complete the tour in its entirety. A reliable and regular service.

    On the buses we were provided with headphones that plugged in and a commentary was given in various languages. On the boat we were given an audio machine with headphones to listen to an interesting commentary for the duration of the boat trip.

    One problem we did encounter was locating the start of both the bus tour and the boat trip but we were able to ask for help and found them eventually.

    I would very much recommend this trip.

    I got a slow start in getting comfortable with my surroundings although everything was going great. I arrived at my hotel by 945am. Even though check in wasn't until 3pm, I was given a room within 30 upgrade! Hotel Palace. I booked the Hop On Hop Off Tour and it was the best decision. I took in the city the first day and then the second day I got off the bus at the places which attracted me. I really enjoyed the city and the people were really friendly. The bonus for me was that although Berlin has some bad history with you know who, I only saw his picture once. Nothing was ever mentioned about him. It was a great trip! Now I'm off to Munich.

    Perfect way to see Berlin. Then you can decide where to go back to later and spend more time. We took the whole route around Berlin first and also the boat tour was great.

    The Berlin tour was very enjoyable and took us to places we would not otherwise have seen. It was initially hard to find their starting location no signage to indicate where they were, but it was worth hunting them down. We got the two-day tour, so we used it to get to all the museums and locations we wanted to see. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Price was very reasonable for what we received I return.

    This tour is a must for first time visitors to Berlin.
    The bus is large and clean and equipped with personalized ear phones so that you can hear about the places the bus is passing.

    It is run efficiently and very comfortable

    This was such an enjoyable way to see the highlights of the city. We did go to the Jewish Museum and stopped for shopping and lunch at Ka de Wi department store. It was so relaxing and easy to access. We used the underground to get to the boarding point..

    Very good tour, takes past all of the main locations. Not as many people taking tour as on other lines, which we liked.
