The instructions on where to catch the bus and other info are pretty clear. We had no trouble find the stops and the whole process was super smooth. The ticket checkers and the drivers are very friendly and helpful. The tours itself covers all the important landmarks in Berlin. And the information on the pre-recorded guided tours are quite comprehensive and interesting. Over all a good experience and value for money.

We did almost twice around. It is a bit difficult to find the meeting point on Unter der linden which is a bit far from the Tussaud museum. Look for the yellow bear in front of the Nivea store. Many explanations (different depending on the bus for the same place). Please note that the 24-hour circuit lasts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ??? We did not try to see if the night circuit was included with this ticket.

Great service on the bus. Guide for walking tour was extremely informative and made the tour very interesting. Boat tour was informative but could have done with a shaded part of boat for those who preferred this. The great weather we had was sunny and very warm put off a few of our group. Very minor points overall excellent. Highly recommended for the cost and service.
