    This is a must for Berlin. This was recommended to me by my travel agent and a family member and I also highly recommend it.

    Using the Hop on Hop off bus is the best way to see the most places of interest in 2 days.


    July 2015

    You can't beat the convenience of seeing so many sights and getting off when you want and returning when you want. A great way to see the city.


    June 2015

    I love these tours. If you are in a city for a short period of time, the hop-on hop-off tours are the way to go. I was able to visit numerous places in a short period of time. It was a great experience!


    July 2015

    The Bus tour in Berlin was excellent. We bought the 2 days tour plus the river tour and the entire trip was amazing. We stay in the bus for the entire loop around Berlin, around 2 hours, and then got off in every single stop. Awesome tour and the price was right.


    July 2015

    Wonderful tour. My wife and I enjoyed the the two days tour and visited many wonderful places.

    Great tour with loads of good stops, the music between the commentary does get a little dull after a while but well worth the money!

    The bus took us to many of the top locations. We really appreciated the fact that the bus really did come about every 10 minutes. The city doesn't allow signs for the bus to be installed by the curb, so look for the bus personnel at most stops. There are usually sandwich board signs near the curb at the stops.


    June 2015

    Very efficient service. Enjoyed the boat too.

    The tour guide, Rick, was extremely knowledgeable in Cold War history. We saw many sites throughout East Berlin of historical significance during this era.

    A very comprehensive city tour. Frequent stops. Well organised in terms of being able to buy a ticket at well sigh-posted tour-official ticket sellers. The commentary was detailed and the ear plugs did not hurt the ears. A highly recommended tour.

    We LOVED Hop On/Hop Off and are now fans. It got us to do many places all over Berlin. We enjoyed the guided audio tour and the convenience of the buses coming so often. We even did Hop On/Off at our next destination in Vienna.

    Excellent great way to see the sights


    June 2015

    Brilliant tour although it took us a while to find the right bus as there were so many different companies doing this type of tour! Commentary was excellent and the positioning of the stops was just right. We bought a 2 day ticket which we would recommend as it gave us a chance to hop on and off visiting the places that we had marked out we wanted to see when we were on the first round trip.

    Was excellent, Was on the bus on Saturday and took the whole tour once, and subsequently hopped off individual sites and visited them for the next two days.


    March 2015

    Bus is on time and frequent. Audio guide is convenient to use with language selection. Hope the running time could be longer than 5 hours per day.
