Had a very very terrible...
, Jun 2022
Had a very very terrible experience with the city sightseeing bus. On a day when it was 32° in Berlin, the bus driver refused to turn on the air-conditioning. With no clouds and high temperatures it was very hard to sit on the top floor but tbh the temperature inside the bus with no AC was even harder to bear. For 28 euros worth, one really expects the buses to be better and more comfortable.

Great Way to See Berlin
, May 2022
Easy to use with available Berlin app. Make sure to download. Also, the buses are clean and comfortable. Enjoy.
Comfortable ride,...
, May 2022
Comfortable ride, courteous driver, good audio. Interesting itineraries. HOWEVER, pick up pointswere confusing, but was aided by human assistance ateach pick up location. It would have been more helpful if the driver spoke a bit of english.
Long boring bus run
, Apr 2022
Very poor tour , there was no commentary for most of the tour , very boring without this as we passed some intersting sites but got no informatioin about them.
Good to see Berlin and learn about its history
, Feb 2022
We really enjoyed the tour, the sights along the way the hop on and hop off and audio was fascinating to listen to. Downside is on 3 stops we were waiting 30+ minute for a bus and the pick up spots for buses are not clear at all. Also 3 companies allow you on their buses this is not made clear at the start.

, Nov 2021
The tour itself was very nice and interesting. It's a little bit confusing that there several companies using the term hop on hop off. At first we had som difficulties in finding the right one.
Shame about the commentary
, Sep 2020
Good number of stops and frequency but the commentary lets it down. It unfortunately came across as a bit patronising, there were several derogatory comments about woman and it wasn’t that informative. We ended up walking half of the route as we felt it was better than listening to the tour. It was a shame as I have used this company in many other cities and always been pleased with the experience
Good sights
, Jul 2020
I loved all places it traveled to and being able to listen while I was on the bus was a plus. I would recommend it.

I bought a ticket for the hop on hop or bus in Berlin together with the boat. on arrival there appeared to be no boat in the winter. we have been scammed through your website part and therefore lost money. How are you going to reimburse this?

Great Way to Get around Berlin
, Dec 2019
It was an excellent choice especially given poor weather to use the Hop on Hop off bus where you get a great appreciation via the view from the top deck and the narrated tour of the city which if time is limited, allows you to pick and choose locations for further exploration.
Rain accomodation
, Nov 2019
I was so surprised that with the amount of bad weather that London has, there was no canopy to be drawn over the top of the bus during rain. The bus was so full there was no place to go and you had to just sit there and get wet. Also when I boarded again there was no room and the upstairs guide said there were no towel to wipe the sets so I had to sit in wet seats. She was in a seat for 2 and did not even move her stuff to allow me to sit there. Up to this point Hop on Hop off buses have been great but I am not sure that inn London the company has not realized that inclement weather happens frequently and there were no accommodations. Even a roll of paper towel would have helped.

Berlin Overview
Jeffrey S
, Oct 2019
We went on both the Red and Green Routes. Both were excellent. The English commentary was very informative, the drivers were very skilled and the company was well organized. With so many competing companies using similar names, it can get quite confusing finding he right bus, but there were representatives at all the major stops to help you find your way. The only disappointment was that we missed the 4:00 boat tour by just minutes. The 4:30 boat was cancelled due to an issue with one of the boats being taken out of service. This meant we would have had to wait an hour with no place to sit near the dock. Needless to say we walked back to the hotel.
Mixed services
, Sep 2019
The route and ease to get your tickets was excellent. However, the employees were rude or indifferent and the timely of the buses and stops were inconsistent.
, Jul 2019
It was our first time in Berlin, the tour was very convenient and informative to find our way in the city . Well done
, Jul 2019
running times too short 9.15am to 3pm, hence always rushing around buses good condition and funny and informative audio. just need to extend the running times
Good introduction to the city
, Jul 2019
Good to have the 2 interlinking circuits showing different aspects of this very interesting and diverse city. Dual commentary on the Wall and Lifestyle tour (B) made this one more interesting than the monologue of the Traditional tour (A). With frequent and some rather long driver stops - start early in the day to complete both circuits!
, Jul 2019
The 'A' Route had most places of interest; however, the 'B' Route was nothing short of a disappointment; we appreciate that drivers require a break (by law) but the length of time spent at the major change over stops was so long, we ran out of time to see all the places on the 'B' Route, so, consequently, we missed out. (In other words, break stops @15 minutes each = 1 hour of the tour lost). Surely another arrangement could be put in place. (Just to point out, we were unable to complete the rest of our tour on the following day).
Two days in berlin
, Jun 2019
Booked before we went, Stayed near un der linden had no trouble changing voucher. drivers and staff very friendly did not have to wait more than 10 mins when got off bus. all in all very good way to get a taster of berlin

The commentary was poor and the buses appeared to finish quite early in the evening. Other companies appeared to have a greater frequency of buses, but I cannot confirm this.
Excessive driver breaks, long stops
, Jun 2019
June 2-3, 2019 we had 4 48 hour passes for Berlin. Despite the adveristed 2 2 hour routes, we couldn't take advantage. We waiting 30 minutes almost every time for the bus, and not because we had just missed it. Stops were longer than necessary to load and unload passengers. Drivers took multiple "15 minute" breaks, which were really 25 minutes while they smoked 2-3 cigarettes. That 2 hour route actually took us more like 3+. Furthermore, warn people that there are multiple companies doing Hop on Hop off. While the routes appear to be the same, the companies are not. One is green Two are red.
