  • Berlin Combo Package: City Tour & Spree Boat Tour

    10. Berlin Combo Package: City Tour & Spree Boat Tour

    Discover the most interesting sights in Berlin on this practical hop-on hop-off bus tour coupled with a boat tour along the Spree. Simply hop on the bus at the first stop, sit back, explore the city and get closer to the highlights of Berlin. You can get on and off the bus as often as you wish and spend as much time as you like at each attraction. Stroll along the Kurfürstendamm, learn more about the historical background of Checkpoint Charlie, admire the Brandenburg Gate and enjoy Gendarmenmarkt. Buses on the Best of Berlin by City Circle (yellow) stop at the following bus stops: • Kurfürstendamm • KaDeWe • Lützowplatz • Cultural Forum • Potsdamer Platz • Checkpoint Charlie • Gendarmenmarkt • Alexanderplatz (TV Tower) • Fountain of Neptune • Museum Island • Berlin Cathedral • Lustgarten (Museum Island) • Unter den Linden • Brandenburg Gate (Reichstag building) • Berlin Central Station...

    The bust tour was fine but you need more that 2 days if you want to spend a reasonable time at the sites because the bus only runs between 1000 and 1800. The music on the bus commentary translators is dire and needs to be changed. The Reichstag tour is a must and was the highlight of the visit to Berlin. We also enjoyed the Brandenburg Gate, Cathedral and Checkpoint Charlie. The city is huge and you need the public transport. We used trams and underground and all were easy to use. Plenty of places to eat and a large variety of international foods. We stayed at Hotel Abba Berlin which was reasonably central and was clean and comfortable. There is more to see in Berlin than is apparent from travel brochures.

Our timing was superb. Lovely weather to explore the city by bike. The differences between the neighborhoods are really nice to get to grips with during our first visit to Berlin.

Our guide Jonathan led the group perfectly, gave great tips and kept the tour very entertaining! Great ... it was really worth it!

We did a tour with Vincenz and were absolutely thrilled! Super competent and informative

Exciting bike tour through Berlin. Highly Recommended!
