    Good intro to Berlin. Day one completed the tour and day two picked out the sites we wanted to hop off at. Very easy to use and good value

    I took the 2-day option. This was good value for money. It gave me flexibility and the opportunity to see the attractions that I was interested in and at a pace that suited me. The on-board audio commentary was informative and not over-burdened with useless trivia. The stops were well-spaced and the buses were easy to locate.

    A very helpful audio introduction to the city. Extensive choice of languages. About 18 different hop-on, hop-off points. Worth getting the 2-day ticket. Do full tour about 2 hours on day 1, then cherry pick where you want to see again on day 2. Good value too.

    We did the Traditional tour a couple of times as I'm not a great walker. The second time as it grew dark to enjoy the Christmas lights. A lovely experience and the best way to get your bearings.

    Was very interesting and as always in the past with viatour great value for money. The only disappointment was that we bought the yellow line tour but the same company did a purple line tour. As we had booked through viatour they wouldn't let us pay the smaller charge to upgrade to the purple tour and said we had to pay an extra 30 euros for the two of us. When an upgrade was only 5/6 euros each so we didn't bother.


    December 2015

    I highly recommend taking this tour, It was a great way to see Berlin, multiple Christmas markets and the Christmas lights around Berlin. Berlin is beautifully decorated during Christmas season. I only wish they would run this tour later during the winter, so you could have more time to see all the decorations.

    Superb value --- fantastic way to see the city on first day and to visit various sites on day two.


    November 2015

    We used the service for two full days and it was great. It allowed us to get an overview and then go back around for certain sites we wanted to go into. We also took the associated Spree River boat tour and had a great time on that. It was nice to see things from that vantage.


    November 2015

    Excellent tour took the bus round complete tour first .then we used hop on off facility . Would recommend this tour .

    October 2015

    I love hop on hop off buses, I do them in all cities I visit if they're available. This was great as usual, no problems with pick up and drop off locations and everyone was friendly and helpful.

    This hop-on/hop-off tour is worth the cost. Allows you to see the major sights without having to walk all over the city. If you purchase the 2 day or 3 day pass. I would recommend holding off until your second day to actually initiate your tour and use your first day to explore to find out where the bus stops are before you redeem your ticket so that you get the full tour period you pay for. Buses are clean and comfortable and the staff are generally pleasant and helpful. Ear buds are supplied and you can plug in to all the major languages. I would recommend this ticket.

    The yellow line covered everything we wanted to see and more. Hats off to the drivers, they are doing an excellent job and they are smiling despite the infernal traffic. The boat cruise was nice with friendly staff.

    Great way to get an idea of how Berlin works and what to see. It's invaluable for being able to spend time at the sites you want to see. I would recommend that you do both the yellow and purple as the east side gallery is a must as you get a better idea of the wall and how far it spread.


    October 2015

    An excellent way to see Berlin with this 48 hr. yellow tour - it could keep a history buff busy for the entire 2 day period. We added on the purple tour for a reasonable price and got to see most of East Berlin, some added for history buffs as it includes the Berlin Wall Memorial and a lot of the wall itself. There's 18 stops on the yellow line, a lot of which history buffs will enjoy on WWII.

    The Berlin hop on - hop off tour was excellent. It took us on both routes of the city and to all the famous places and there was plenty of time to get off and view all the landmarks. We had a two day ticket and we did each route more than once so we had a good look around Berlin. We have already recommended this tour to other who are visiting Berlin soon.


    October 2015

    By using this facility it gives you a great knowledge of Berlin and its attractions and suburbs.

    The bus was great on time lots of interesting information given as we passed the points of interest. The 2 day pass gave us the extra time to see more of the attractions.

    This is a great way to see the city and also have transportation to all the major sights. We recommend doing the full length of the tour and then going back and hopping off at the places you really want to visit. Great value and great tour.
