Engrossing, highly informative and good fun at the same time

This was a great tour! I’m a Brit and worked in Berlin for 3.5 years but never really had the chance to explore the city in depth, and my girlfriend is Bulgarian and lived under Communism and wanted to see a little of the former East Berlin. This tour was great for both of us. The groups are deliberately kept small, I think there were 11 people on our tour, a mix of Brits and Americans, very good humoured, some real laughs along the way. Our Guide - Josh, was excellent, he informed but also elicited answers and discussions from the group on places we had just visited. There was no pressure to get involved, but everyone took part anyway because of the thought provoking subject matter of the tour and what we were seeing. This was the best thing we did in Berlin during our 4 day break there and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to see below the ‘surface’ of Berlin. Thanks Josh! Steve and Liya

Good way to see Berlin on a very hot day

I read mixed reviews of HoHo tours in Berlin but having done a 4 hour walking tour & a day at the zoo my teenagers were in no mood to have another day tramping around in temps of 28c. In the event this tour was a good choice. A live guide spoke excellent English & although we got off twice we were lucky enough to get our first, very good, woman guide again on the third bus. There is only one circular route in one direction which avoids any confusion & apart from a couple of 10 minute stops it goes round at a reasonable pace taking in all the major landmarks. One slight drawback was that the 2nd driver/guide didn't announce all the stops, or stop at every one so we missed getting off at the Tiergarten and had to have lunch in Potsdamer Platz instead. All in all a good way to see the city, hear some history and be able to spend more time at the areas of interest.

Outstanding and excellent value for money.

We joined Mike on his Third Reich and Cold War tour yesterday and it was outstanding. He is a superb tour guide, enthusiastic, energetic and enthralling. We brought our sons to Berlin to help them in their history studies and Mike's tour engaged and inspired them more than anything else that we did during our tour of the city. And it was excellent value for money! Highly recommended.

Great way to get oriented to Berlin, but not always easy to hear audio

Mostly this was an excellent way to understand the city, but at times, on different buses, it was hard to understand the guide talking in English. That was a small negative, compared to the convenience of moving around town on an open air bus, on a nice day, taking in the sights and learning locations for further explanations. But better sound system would be real benefit.

Superb tour covering the history of the city

Cesar was an exceptionally well read guide. The man is a PhD in history and it was evident that he knew his stuff. The walk was very evenly paced and covered the important landmarks of Berlin. I strongly recommend this tour if you are a history buff or even if you want to remotely know about WorldWar2. . Kudos to Cesar for a wonderful tour.
