Customer Reviews

  • Robert Mee

    Most of the two hours was spent sitting in traffic listening to annoying replays of Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries or Bach's Brandenburg Concerto. The audio stopped working at stop 15 (Checkpoint Charlie) and when I spoke to the driver he said in perfectly fine English "I don't speak English" and turned away. I felt like it was a complete waste of time and money. The afternoon walking tour from the Brandenburg Gate to Checkpoint Charlie was excellent - informative and willingness to answer questions.

  • Keith Snelgrove

    Great tour goid driver very enjoyable

  • Radek Danhel

    Interesting way to see the most important sights of the city. The live English-speaking guide joined the bus at Checkpoint Charlie, before that recorded commentaries in several languages were available. Unfortunately, the most important places on our tour had to be omitted as there was a demonstration taking place near thv government offices. But thanks to the live guide we were briefly informed about the sites not visited and he showed us other places not included in the original tour.
