Whenever we go on a city break we always take the sightseeing bus as it's the easiest way to make sure you get round all the main sights in a short space of time. It was good that we were able to use the tour bus to get around everything but this is one of the worst I've been on.... More

We bought tickets from the stop by Check Point Charlie for the 2 tours over 2 days, which cost 50E for the 2 of us. Using the free earphones you can listen to the pre recorded commentary. This was OK but not great. I wanted the facts, not 2 voices that sounded like wanna a be comedians! The timings weren't... More

There are a number of tours to chose from but we chose the Berlin City Tour as it stopped near to our hotel It was clean and regular (every 10 minutes ) and you can hop on and of at all of the main tourist points. I particularly liked the commentary which was very interesting. One minor point was that... More

I've been on these red hop on off buses in many major cities in europe including brussels and barcelona but this was awful. The commentary is pre-recorded of two guys having a conversation to explain things, which is completely unnecessary. The timing is also completely out of sync with the driving.. 'look to your left and you will see the... More

This is the worst sightseeing bus tour I've been on. The earphones where uncomfortable the directions and information given where wrong and sometimes two convocations between the narrators overlapped On the leaflet it says Saturdays tour is given by a person, which was false. It is good for hitting the hot spots of the city and some of the drivers... More

We purchased the tickets for the bus from our hotel lobby. It was easy to buy and easy to find the closest stop. There is usually a person selling tickets beside the bus as well. Once on the bus you get earphones and can tune into the tour of berlin in your chosen language. There are many buses in service... More

Have been on other city sightseeing tours in other cities & they've been enjoyable & interesting, however this one doesn't compare in the slightest! The buses are old & could do with some maintenance and TLC. The English commentary isn't very informative - it's more along the lines of two guys having a conversation with each other trying to be...

We have used "hop on, hop off" city bus tours in several cities across the world. This is by far the worst we have used. The commentary mentioned upcoming events in 2008 and 2009 (we visited in 2017!). As well as this, the commentary lacked real detail, instead opting to try to make poor attempts at sarcasm and humour at... More

Plenty of sights visited but you can seem to pass them by in a rush. Good information with plenty language options. We chose to do this on a cold day to keep out of the snow, might be better if it was warm so you can get off and enjoy the stops
