Herman_S, May 2022
Comfortable ride, courteous driver, good audio. Interesting itineraries. HOWEVER, pick up pointswere confusing, but was aided by human assistance ateach pick up location. It would have been more helpful if the driver spoke a bit of english.
Hits all the spots
Allan_C, Jun 2019
We got delayed because of the berlin marathon. Both routes were interesting. overall it was worth the price. there is no way to see all the sites in one day, try to do 2 days.

This was a fantastic transportation/tour option. My only complaint is that I did not have enough time to travel all the various lines/tours. So much to see and learn about in Berlin.

Emmy_L, Sep 2017
Berlin has so many history that you cannot see all from Hop-On Hop-Off Tour. But it's definitely a great way to learn about things in Berlin. I took it for 1st day and walked/went day after to all the points that I wanted to see. Berlin is very nice city to visit.

Love the hop-on hop-off buses wherever I go. Great way to get around a city when you have limited time and money. Went to all the places you want to see in Berlin and great commentary.

joanne.johnstone, Jun 2017
Definitely the best way to see Berlin as an introduction and then go back to the sights that interest you. We found the recorded commentary a little odd a discussion with jokes but still got good information.

i86cvetanovski, Dec 2017
Excellent way to get to see the best things in Berlin! This tour offered two routes A and B which takes you through West and East Berlin and has the option of a live commentary. Overall great experience that is a must do in Berlin.

Richard Y, Aug 2017
Did the two day hop on hop off bus in Berlin through City Sightseeing tours and it was very good. Berlin is a compact city and most of the tourist spots are in or close to the Mitte district and easily accessible by walking. However the hoho bus covered the more distant sights and also gave a good overview of all the important places to visit. It was good value for money.

David G, Aug 2017
The tour enabled us to see all of Berlin over two days, we were able to hop on and off all day, the guides all spoke English and were extremely helpful. I would fully recommend this tour. Excellent.

On the go in Berlin, Jul 2017
I've been on this tour a number of times with friends who come to visit us in Berlin, and I can say without a doubt that this is an excellent way to see Berlin in a short amount of time. If you have the time, I highly recommend a 2 day pass, which provides access to all of the routes. I also highly recommend waiting for the the live commentary bus green and beige, as the guides are a wealth of knowledge. There is quite a bit to see and do here, and for the price difference between the 1 and 2 day package, you just can't beat the 2 day pass. It gives you access to all 3 routes, plus a 1 hr walking tour, AND a 1 hr river cruise. The 2 day pass is all that one would need for a fantastic 2 day tour of Berlin. Welcome to Berlin!

Don_G, Sep 2017
The Berlin City Sightseeing Tour is really good as it has 3 different routes. This suited us perfectly because we were staying in Berlin for 3 days and we were able to spend adequate time on each route over the time we were there. Each route is different and allows you to see all that Berlin has to offer.

Denbo, Jun 2017
I paid for 2x day's Berlin Bus tour over 2 days on all 3x routes. We boarded on day 1 at the Brandenburg Gate, Took the No1 route and the staff was very heplful and friendly. We had a live guide that spoke both English and German. The same was on the West tour bus which take you to the Olympic stadium and West Berlin area. On day2 we got the Berlin wall tour on the final route, this was a recorded guide but in many languages. All buses were great to board at set points and get on and off wherever you like. I enjoyed them and the freedom too. Value for money.

Berlin is a beautiful city with so much history to learn. The Hop-on-Hop Off Tour is the way to see it! Great trip.
Berlin Overview
Jeffrey S, Oct 2019
We went on both the Red and Green Routes. Both were excellent. The English commentary was very informative, the drivers were very skilled and the company was well organized. With so many competing companies using similar names, it can get quite confusing finding he right bus, but there were representatives at all the major stops to help you find your way. The only disappointment was that we missed the 4:00 boat tour by just minutes. The 4:30 boat was cancelled due to an issue with one of the boats being taken out of service. This meant we would have had to wait an hour with no place to sit near the dock. Needless to say we walked back to the hotel.
Raafat_B, Jul 2019
It was our first time in Berlin, the tour was very convenient and informative to find our way in the city . Well done
