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.

The best way to get to know Berlin. Its history, its curiosities and a pleasant trip on the river Spree. And I won't tell you about the tasty surprise!!!

It was great. I loved not having to drive or park. I liked the freedom to get on and off at multiple popular locations.

A great way to discover Berlin and transport yourself to the places you want to discover more of.

Muy bueno uno conoce de la historia de la ciudad sin necesidad de bajarse del bus…
