Have used the red bus hop off hop on in a few cities but this one was disappointing. Every time we hopped off there was different commentary/information for each bus. Found that weird, one was very blah, monotone, nondescript and the next bus gave interesting details. This was a great way to see Berlin as the public transportation system is very confusing and it hits many of the top sights. I would have preferred to do the City Sightseeing yellow bus tour as it was higher rated. From 4:30-6:30 the traffic was so horrible mostly just sat in a long line of cars. So whichever tour you take start out early and get done before 5. Also there were stops that were skipped which was frustrating.

Having been on a number of this companies tours across Europe I am very familiar with their distinctive red and yellow branding. It was very confusing as in Berlin some buses are the usual predominantly red and others are green/yellow. Berlin seems to have 3 or 4 hop on / hop off tours - the others are all yellow or red/white. For those comfortable and familiar with this companies predominantly red branding this is confusing - I missed a couple buses because I was keeping my eye out for a red bus not a green/yellow.

When getting off I found that the wait between buses was often much longer than the advertised 15 minutes. Also where there were dedicated 15 or 30 min stops there was no other bus to immediately jump on if you didn't want to spend the 15/30 at that stop.

Finally, having been on a bus with live commentary and one with recorded, the live was much better - the recorded commentary had lots of filler music.

The tour take you too see all the arractions in the city center. The guide gives detailed info about attractions. There is time to take a picture. But the city is not that great, it lack of the charm of other old European cities and also does not have the greatness of the big cities like Paris, Landon and Rome. The buildings are too simple and modern, maybe because of wars it suffered. Disappointed with the city. If you are a Cold War fan, you may be insrested in the Berlin Wall and the stories happened during that time in the city.
