The tour was quite informative and used a human guide for part of it and prerecorded information for the other. The only problems we had was that I wasn’t sent any information on where to find the bus stops so we lost a bit of time and I had to contact Viator by phone to get directions. Also it wasn’t 100% clear which Chanel in the headphones to listen to to get the English guide- some I for on a sticker next to Chanel changer would be useful.
Say goodbye subway and hello 360-degree views when you book this hop-on, hop-off ticket on a classic open-top bus.

Opt for a 1-day ticket, a 2-day ticket with a walking tour, or a 2-day deluxe ticket with walking tour and river cruise.
In the last few new places I have visited, the HOHO tours are the best way to get an overview of the city. This tour was no exception and it was really great! I coupled this tour with a walking historic tour (previous day) and between the two tours, I had a really great Berlin experience. The HOHO tour is definitely one I would recommend on a first day, because it points out the main attractions so you know where to visit and/or spend additional time! I rated this a 4 instead of 5 because the stops were not clearly marked and I was concerned that I would not find a stop.

Introduction to Berlin - when you only have a day
, Nov 2019
If you only have a one day ship excursion to "see" Berlin, you couldn't do better than this. The tour company has plenty of representatives on hand and the process of boarding the buses is quick and easy. After a pleasant ride through the North German countryside you go through a tunnel and your in Berlin. Your guide boards the bus and you're off.
Our trip was "Reunification Day" which might have interfered with the trip. Our guide was not only familiar with the events scheduled, but what to see first to avoid closures and crowds. So while the itinerary changed, we saw everything we wanted to. Our guide, who had lived in Berlin for some time not only was knowledgeable of the City, but also about the events that had created the Berlin of today.
The only disappointment was lunch. It may have been due to the changed itinerary, but I felt the plan for us to find a lunch spot on our own was not the best idea, or in the best area by "Checkpoint Charlie." I wish we had had a better idea of where to eat, or gone as a group.
This trip does give a really good "first glance" of Berlin. There are a lot of things that we couldn't do because of time. Once again Viator had an outstanding guide for us, great coordination to get to the tour, and value for the price.
All of the tours we took with viator was 5 star. The tour guide was knowledgable and experience, he took the time to explain and manage our time to get back to the ship. The bathroom stops was a challenge and you need to coins to use the bathroom. The stores will not break a 100 eu for small change. There was a desk upon arrival at the port which had our confirmation and we were able to board a bus which took us into Berlin to join a smaller group.
Because of booking through a third party (Viator) I was unable to get clear answers to questions specifically from the company offering the tour prior to the tour; e.g. where the tour company would be located once disembarking the ship or what happens if I can't get off the ship in time or how to add a guest the night before the tour, etc.
Process once off the ship of finding the tour was easy.
Bus was clean and had WiFi.
Tour guide was awesome.
Bus stopped at a truck stop on the way to Berlin and the bathroom only took exact Euro change. Many people had no euros yet, and the truck stop did not have an ATM. My group and several others could not use the bathroom. I suggest the tour company give everyone a Euro to use the bathroom -- increase the tour cost if you have to, or offer an exchange.
Bus driver, while nice and safe, was extremely slow. We hit traffic on the way to Berlin and it took us 4+ hours to get there from the cruise ship. It took us 4 hours to get back. Basically, 8+ hours of travel for 4 hours of site seeing. The driver could have gone much faster on the way home -- I Google Mapped the way home and it said we could have made it in </= 3 hours using any of three map options.

What a great way to see Berlin! The convenience of a private tour allowed us to go at our own pace while still seeing so much of the city, both East and West. Thomas was knowledgeable and informative. He let us know his unvarnished views on the current state of Germany which was insightful. We stopped for lunch at a great local spot and he had us back for our transfer just at the agreed upon time. Would recommend this tour to others.

Thank you to Philip and Selda (sp?) for a wonderful private tour of the highlights of Berlin. My extended family ranging from 3-years-old to 70+-years-old thoroughly enjoyed exploring the town and learning about its history at our pace. Very comfortable and pleasant. Highly recommend for families.

All-in-One Berlin Shore Excursion - with WIFI on the bus!
Berlin stay too short
, Oct 2019
the trip is not as long as Viator claims "5-6 hrs in Berlin if there is no any traffic delay". Our trip had no any major traffic issue but still took over 4.5 hrs to get to Berlin and over 3.5 hrs back to cruise. We actually had only 3.5 hrs in Berlin which included 40 minutes lunch. I would say it can't be 5.5-6 hrs in Berlin under any circumstances.

Private Custom Berlin Sightseeing Tour in a Minivan: East and West Berlin
From $741.48 per group
, Dec 2019
We had our tour with Markus who was a fantastic guide. The tour is 6 hours and we covered a huge part of the city and a variety of areas. Markus took us to great local and tourist type places and gave us lots of interesting information. Our driver, whose name I forget, was also really professional and did a great job. It was a fantastic day and I would highly recommend it for a tour in Berlin. You can completely customize your day and are free to ask for a coffee break/lunch break whenever you want. This is worth the money you will spend for the day.
Our guides in Berlin were super super knowledgeable. We learned so much about the city that we never knew. We were lucky to have two people showing us around the city - our super talented driver and a guide. And just as a coincidence one grew up in East Berlin and the other in West. They had different experiences that brought a richness to the adventure that we appreciated. The only reason I’m not giving a 5 star rating for this tour is because I use a wheelchair and the van was difficult for me to get in and out of so there were a couple of locations I would have liked to have gotten out but once settled in the van it was easier to send my husband for pictures. But I want to stress that I didn’t miss any of the history or impact of any of the stops because each of the guides made sure that they explained everything before and after. Our driver had some noteworthy skill in maneuvering the van around some of these places and because I it was difficult for me to exit the vehicle he made sure that if there was something important or interesting to see that he navigated around the area so I could see it even if it was something like a table with a knocked over chair. And I will carry the significance of that artwork's meaning with me forever.
This was our first time to Berlin and we didn’t know what to expect. This tour was informative, fun, educational and we were able to tailor to our interests. Our guide and drivers were excellent. The tour allowed us to plan the rest of our stay in Berlin as we knew what areas of interest to revisit. I highly recommend.

Berlin City and Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Tour
, Sep 2019
Know up front that you will have a 3 hour bus ride to the first stop at Sachsenhausen on this tour! The bus stops at a small rest area on the highway mid-way through the drive. Once there we enjoyed the tour. Our guide Rob was very knowledgeable about the history and key events in Germany. He especially wanted us to understand the past and events that led to what happened during the war. Rob helped all of us order lunch at an authentic beer garden. Try the curry wurst. All in all we really enjoyed our day. Just be ready to deal with the long bus ride back.

Shore Excursion: Best of Berlin Tour from Warnemünde or Rostock with Wi-Fi
, Oct 2019
Super tour guide, excellent command of the language, sites and history! My only complaints are: the tour is advertised as a small group with sightseeing and stops along the way...... not so. Huge bus, filled to the gills. No guide on the bus from the port to Berlin or back. No explanations of the countryside or towns. One stop to pee- pay toilets. Make sure you carry euros- Germany does not accept American money! No sightseeing along the way over or back. But, the Berlin city tour itself is excellent.
We didn't have a lot of time for our tour of Berlin because we had a 3-hour drive one-way from where our ship docked in Warnemunde. Our tour guide, Sebastian, was excellent and very knowledgeable of all history involving this great city! Two suggestions: (1) Have a film on the bus about Germany or Berlin since we have such a long drive. (2) The guide has a loud voice, but it's best to pass out the 'whisperers' as we had a fairly large group and some of us have hearing problems. Thanks for a great tour, Sebastian!

We had such a good time on this trip. Eran was a fantastic guide with loads of great information. The bus we traveled on to Dresden was huge and really nice. When reaching Dresden we got a tour of the city and then were given over 3 hours to explore on our own. We were lucky to be there in December for all of the Christmas markets. It was a great day and Dresden (the old town part of it we saw) is a great city to explore.
A very memorable visit to Dresden with Viator. Our guide Oren was the highlight of the trip, very knowledgable and informative. We were very lucky to had him as a guide. Recommended day trip to Dresden with Oren
