Berlin: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour with Live Commentary

Berlin: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour with Live Commentary

Explore Berlin's top sights on a convenient hop-on hop-off bus ticket. Listen to facinating stories about the city with live commentary. Have the freedom to jump on or off throughout the validity of your ticket. Visit top areas like Tiergarten, Gendarmenmarkt, and Potsdamer. One of the stops is the historically significant Potsdamer Platz. In the 1930s, it was one of the most public squares in Berlin. After the Second World War, this was no man’s land, where the Berlin Wall divided the city. Today, seeing the vibrant life and the newly erected towers reminiscent of New York’s urban canyons, you will hardly believe that for years there was nothing here other than the Berlin Wall, spring-guns and GDR soldiers. Also, the Legoland Discovery Center is on Potsdamer Platz. From there, continue to Berlin’s other important historical sites. In the Niederkirchner Straße you can find the city parliament, the Martin-Gropius-Bau, a museum with changing exhibitions, the Topography of Terror, which exhibits the history of the Nazis and of the Jews’ suffering under the Nazis, as well as the Ministry of Finance, which was once the Nazi Ministry of Aviation. After the Gendarmenmarkt it’s on to Alexanderplatz and the TV Tower. The stop for these sights is the Neptune Fountain. This used to be the Berlin City Palace. Here you will also have the opportunity to go shopping. The next stop is Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, in front of the Radisson Hotel. From here you can transfer on to a boat if you wish to experience Berlin by boat as well as bus. From here you can also admire the golden dome of the New Synagogue on Oranienburger Straße. The “Hackeschen Höfe” are only a few minutes away. Next you'll go over the glamorous street Unter den Linden to the Museum Island, Bebelplatz, Humboldt University and to the stops Unter den Linden 36 (Friedrichstrasse) at ZDF Capital City Studios and Unter den Linden 74, where one of Berlin’s most important attractions is located: Madame Tussauds Berlin. From here the ride continues to the Brandenburg Gate. On the way you will see the UK, Russia, France and US embassies, followed by the Holocaust Memorial. The stop there is at Platz des 18. März. The road leads on past the Reichstag and the government district. You will soon reach the new Hauptbahnhof. From here you have the world-famous view of the German Chancellery, the Reichstag and – as a special surprise – Berlin’s “Fujiyama”. Finally you will cross Berlin’s ‘green lung’, the Tiergarten. This park is bigger than New York’s Central Park. The tour then brings you past the Congress Hall to the stop at Bellevue Palace, the official residence of the President of Germany. From here you can also see the Siegessäule with the golden Victoria statue at the top.

The tour was really great. The Bowie fan was well entertained. The parents of the Bowie fan also really enjoyed it and learnt a lot about the city by looking at it through a Bowie lens. The tour covered a lot of the city, included putting our heads into different museums and hopping on and off trains and buses - all accompanied with music and pictures to bring the stories to life. The tour lasted well over three hours and we really enjoyed it. The only improvement would have been knowing where we would finish the tour so that we could plan where to eat when we finished.

Walid our guide was very good. He was knowledgeable, flexible, humorous and he made the day very enjoyable. The bus was clean, comfortable and in excellent condition. Our driver Matthias was very competent and stayed with our belongings on the bus while we walked in Berlin. Overall it was a terrific tour even though it was 6 hours of bus time round trip from Warnemünde to Berlin. We easily got back to our cruise ship on time with 3 hrs to spare.

The start of our hop on hop off tour was a little confusing. We didn't know exactly which bus it was. After asking a few questions, we found the right bus. The tour was very informative and the live speaker was brilliant. She explained everything very well and answered questions patiently. We were delighted!

Hope on hop off last bus was very old smelled like urine had no protectors for passengers sitting at the top and the driver of this very old smelly and dangerous bus was rude and spoke no English and the English speaking tour guide was not helpful. The driver of the new bus was very kind.

Very nice tour and highly recommended! Totally relaxed!
