    Hop on hop off tour with the white buses was ok. However, there was no live commentary on one bus, just a tape. In the other bus, a nice Italian woman spoke German live into the microphone. However, the boat trip on the Spree was great, with a native Berliner who humorously explained all the sights. Unfortunately, the white buses only run at long intervals. At each station there was a (usually older) person in a red anorak for information.

    Great personal support

    A well-run and planned tour. Steffi made the individual points very lively with small incidents. A big difference to city tours with headphones. Really beneficial. We would always choose this personal variant. The boat tour would also be great. The guide was awesome and totally entertaining. Great. We would have loved to stay seated longer. A big compliment to both of them.

    Great price / performance. Interesting tour with great explanations.

    Interesting explanations from the original Berlin guides. The bus stopped at 22 stations, all of which were located directly at the sights. Unfortunately the stations were not marked as such. You always had to remember exactly where the descents were. However, there was usually a service employee standing around for better orientation. Buses were getting a bit old, drove every 15-20 minutes. Spree trip was also very informative. Friendly staff with catering on board. The ships left Station 11 every 30 minutes.
