    My first trip to Berlin, Germany was really enhanced by the Hop-on Hop-off tour. I got to see a lot of the sights of Berlin in a more relaxed format. I especially liked the boat tour around the city. It was a nice opportunity to rest my tired legs from touring. I HIGHLY recommend this method of seeing Berlin, especially for a first timer to Berlin. It was simply AWESOME!

    Excellent value for money and the add-on river cruise was well worth the extra 9 euros

    Comprehensive tour yellow route. The best way to see Berlin. Very helpful Agents and Drivers. Buses were all punctual and comfortable. No hesitation in recommending this tour.


    August 2015

    Simply I couldn't imagine my stay in Berlin without this hop-on hop-off tour.. :) there are 22 audio languages that act as your tour guide.. Buses come every ten minutes.. Believe me it's worth doing :) (the only negative thing is that it's a bit expensive but still way cheaper than Berlin Taxis :))

    The red buses had a pre-recorded tour commentary which was activated by GPS once we got to the appropriate place, this was excellent. The green and yellow buses had an onboard guide who's narratives were often hard to understand and not as good as the pre-recorded commentaries.

    Excellent tour. Not only did this tour introduce you to the main sites of Berlin but for me travelling solo I was able to get my bearings as to how the city was laid out and what features I wanted to visit this time. Thank you.

    I was very pleased to see a stop next to our hotel, which made life easier. Everything was ok and very accessible. I was very happy and satisfied. The tour covered a vast amount of the sights we wanted to see.

    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.

    Nicholai is THE BEST guide EVER !!! His knowledge is infinite and his manner is captivating, interesting, engaging, emotional. Loved learning about Berlin through Nicholai. His ability to recall ALL historical dates for all situations was beyond impressive. Highly recommend the tour and Nicholai

    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.
