    Amazing guide! Great command of English and the tour was well explained. It was peaceful night tour through the city centre where we could see the all major buildings covered by the light patterns. The only thing i always find difficult with GetYourGuide is the pick up spot otherwise all good!

    Very friendly and courteous guides. The tour was a lot of fun. I can therefore only recommend Big Bus Tours. Unfortunately, the organizer of "Berlin Leuchtet" has not shown that much skill. The homepage was only reasonably usable shortly before the start of the event and the worst of all: not all the light displays were switched on or only very weakly visible. But Big Bus Tours can't do anything about that.

    Checking in procedure needs to be reviewed as it’s done manually again before boarding even when you have printed tickets. The distancing rules are not being obeyed by guests (where every second row is kept free) as everyone wants to sit upstairs and this is not being controlled by the guide. A rope fixed across the entry to those seats would prevent them being used. Not all guests are wearing masks because they think they don’t need to in an open top bus. I booked this tour believing all the above would ensure my safety and enjoyment to see the lights and was upset and annoyed at how irresponsible people are defying the rules and staff doing nothing to enforce the rules. Our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. The lights were wonderful and I’m glad I went. I kept my mask on the whole time. It was extremely hot that evening. The row behind us was occupied and the guests refused to leave or wear their masks! I have an autoimmune illness and was so annoyed at this behaviour!
