I loved this trip. I have used this kind of tour in New York city and find that it is a great way to get to know a city and lets you see where you would like to re-visit and spend more time. This trip did not dissapoint. It covered all of the criteria you would look for - friendly service, punctual and frequent buses, good audio commentary. To sum it up - great. On the day we were to go up the tower (supposed to be early morning) the fog was thick. The operators were kind enough to let us return that night and see the city lights. They also gave us a complimentary glass of champagne. We had a lovely time. Berlin is a fabulous city - hope to visit it again sometime.
Great. Commentary in a choice of 6 different languages on headphones actually worked much better than I had imagined.
the tour and the people were great highly recommend this operator to anyone
This was really good. You get into the TV Tower straight away rather than lining up for 2 hours. Great views, and you can have dinner there up at the top in the restaurant, but its really expensive. Bus was really good too.
This was our first trip to Berlin, and the HO-HO bus is the perfect way to see everything quickly to assess what we wanted to do more in depth. Even when we make our next trip, we plan to do this tour again!
As advertised a very useful way of getting your bearings around Berlin if you're there for the first time. Headphones are available in English and you can get on and off from 10.00am until 6.00pm.
Very good comprehensive tour. Only one criticism and that is that the bus stops were very hard to find, and on our first day we found it very difficult to find a stop to commence the tour.
The bus tour is very good but the full circuit takes over 2 hours. In winter time it stops running at 5 o'clock which means it is difficult to use the hop on hop off after 3 o'clock. In the middle of the day the bus can be crowded. It would be much better if, like other cities there were 2 shorter routes which converged at a central point. The recorded commentary is very clear and informative.
The Skip the line entry to the TV Tower is definitely worthwhile, particularly at the moment when there is only one lift operating. It is almost impossible to use the hop on bus to reach the tower in the morning as the tower is towards the end of the route. We used the underground and unfortunately there were technical problems so we could not go up the tower on Thursday. On Friday when we were able to go up it was raining so visibility was limited but we enjoyed the experience and the information and pictures beside the windows were very informative, even when you had moved round from where you were reading by the time you lined up the view with the picture.
The Viator voucher was excellent once we found the start of the bus route which was very close to our hotel.
One star deducted due to your lack of response to my email query before we arrived. Our TV Tower tour was due before 11am and the bus service didn't operate until 10am; we had to get from one side of Berlin to the ticket validation point; the bus ride took about 30 minutes and I was concerned that we would miss the trip up the tower.
As it happened the concierge at our fab hotel Movenpick telephoned the TV Tower staff and assured me we could still use the TV Tower ticket after 11am if we didn't get there in time.
I only bought the TV Tower ticket in advance after reading reviews that queues were likely at the tower. As it turned out it was a quiet day and it wouldn't have made any difference.
The Hop On Hop Off tour buses were great and we didn't have to wait more that 10 minutes at any stop before another bus came along.
Berlin is a fantastic city and I would recommend anyone to go.
Very happy with tour. Good operation as far as bus operator went.
Berlin tower however was overcrowded and view interpretation area was not secured off so that in many places children and others simply sat on the panels which prevented viewing the information.
It was hard to cash in voucher for tour.Many operators. Found some person who said yes ok and gave us ticket for 48h bus tower. The TV tower people did not honor this ticket ????? Tour was great and having 2 days made sure we saw plenty and could go back to see places seen earlier in tour
The hop on hop off bus tour was great in providing an introduction to Berlin. The 48 hour pass meant that we could return on day 2 to some of the sites that looked most interesting. I elected for the bus tour including entry to the TV tower with the morning admission time of between 9.00 am to 11.00 am. However, it is physically impossible to join the first bus at 10.00 am bus at location specified in the voucher (stop 1) and get to the TV tower (stop 10) before 11.00 am.
