If I could give them less I would! I have never been so disgusted with a company in my life (and I'm quite easy to please). Firstly, there are no signs to tell you where stops are, so if you walk to a stop, you actually don't know where buses stop. We ran to catch a bus as we were... More

The traditional (tour A) tour takes in all the major sights with good hop on hop off stops located nearby. You can do a silly walk to the Holocaust memorial, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Wall memorial etc as well as seeing the main squares. If you have a Berlin City Pass you get a 5 euro reduction on... More

We took the red bus city sightseeing tour from Checkpoint Charlie. We were not in time the previous day as we had mistakenly enterpreted the finish time as manageable, without taking off the time for the trip itself. The bus tour is not to be missed and this one didn't seem badly organised. However it was dated and seemed rather... More

Berlin in a whole is great place to visit specially the Christmas market; (it was few days after we been with the suicide track came along). But won't stop me going because of that incident. Highly recommended as we had a great time. We visited parliament but you have to book in advance at least 3 months before hand but... More

We bought a two day ticket for two of the routes. The first bus we got on had recorded commentary which consisted of two men having a conversation about the sights etc. To be honest I found this a bit strange and slightly confusing! We got off and waited for a live tour which was worth the wait. We did... More

What we most liked about the City Sightseeing tour was the number of routes on offer, which cover a wide variety of spread out sights, making getting to them all much easier than it would be using just public transport. On the long C tour we especially liked the live commentary provided by the funny, friendly guide who really brought... More

City bus tours are, for me, the best way to see a new city. We visited during late March, and booked both the West and the East tours. We started by travelling on the West tour on our first day. We did not want to get off and see the sights particularly that day as we'd had an early start,... More

Worst bus service I've used. Really bad bus timing. When I purchased, they said there was a bus every 15min, but that's far from the case. One time I waited over half an hour for the bus to arrive. Some of the buses are also pretty old and not comfortable. Should have definitely paid the 7 EUR extra and bought... More

This was a hop on hop off bus tour but the speaker system was so poor you could hardly hear the guide. Also the information given was not great and was very monotonous.

We always do the hop on hop off buses whenever we arrive in a new city so have a lot of experience of them. Unfortunately this company in Berlin failed to impress. Not as many buses as competitors and the live commentary was not very engaging. Too many 15 minute or half hour breaks too ! Also on our second... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
