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.
Great with VIP access to restaurant at TV Tower included in ticket. Made the day! Great with the possibility to hop off/hop off. Impossible to be at TV tower at 10am, as we had to wait for Viator office to open, to exchange vouchers - and then walk to Tower. Missed ½ hour there, a bit annoying. A lot extra walking, there should be an easier way to do this. But the bus trip was good.
Very useful as an orientation tour. Being able to avoid the queue at the TV tower was very good. Only one problem. The stops for the bus were not very clearly marked and we had a job to identify the right place at some points.
A good tour to get a overview of Berlin. We went up the TV Tower first, as the weather was threatening to close in, but ideally I would do it after having had a look around Berlin so you'd know what you're looking at from the Tower. NB: the directions for getting the TV Tower tickets were very confusing and what we had to do ended up being different from what was on the Viator voucher. The times the Tower was open were also different. We got our ticket vouchers from the Park Hotel (close to the Tower). Then you redeem the vouchers at the souvenir shop in the Tower (don't stand in the ticket queue). And then you go upstairs and stand in the so-called VIP queue - you have to ignore the numbers that are being called, as your ticket doesn't have a number. In the end, we basically had to push into the queue of people with numbered tickets. The staff were not at all helpful. But it's well worth doing!
Except for a bit of trouble finding the pick-up point, as the location was very vague, in every other way this tour was very good. It went round all the major sites, and there was time to get off, see what you wanted in more detail, and not have long to wait for another bus to arrive. I was on the upper deck, and as a photographer I did wish the windows were set lower, or not there at all, as they are on the buses for some of the other similar tours. We were required to use seat belts and stay seated, which meant trying to take photographs through rain-spotted glass that also reflected the bus interior. Also, you really need to plan for more than one day on this type of tour. By the time I had got off at all the places I wanted to see and went through the Jewish Museum and the Checkpoint Charlie Museum, I missed the last bus and had to get a taxi back to my hotel. There was plenty of daylight left by then, so perhaps they should consider running the tours until sunset.
Once the start location was found the actual trip was very well done.
We had a great deal of trouble finding where to get on the bus. We went up the tower first and this seemed to cause confusion and we spent well over an hour trying to find the bus. Once we did get on the bus we thoroughly enjoyed our day viewing all the interesting buildings and places and getting off for a closer view at about 4 'stops'. Very good value for overseas visitors.
Great way to see the city. I also agree that there is no skip the line entry to TV tower. You still have to turn your voucher into tickets because they need bar codes. With that being said, that early in the morning there was no line so there was no waiting. Very enjoyable day in Berlin.
Bus tour OK - much the same as any other on offer in Berlin. TV Tower - GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!! Lots of photos with buildings highlighted help you locate yourself in the panorama. Numbers monitored - so not too crowded. Lift ride - 305m in 30seconds!!!!!!! Wow!! Well worth it!!!!!!! Be prepared for airport level security though to get in!
