    Unfortunately the first bus driver was not very well trained and did not take us with him because he thought the online ticket was not with him. My recommendation to have the booking with me in printed form. Thankfully the 2nd bus driver was good and very nice - made up for a lot again. We were very angry and frozen out because we had to wait for the next bus - we were 40 minutes in freezing cold :-(

    Great way to see Berlin

    The BIG BUS hop on hop off, tour is a fantastic way of seeing all the major sites in Berlin, dont forget to also ride the 'blue route' from the Alexanderplatz stop. If you buy the full package (2 day ticket) that also lets you go on the River tour once and the walking tour with excellent commentary from the walking guide. Use the Bus like a bus service and get off at any one of the stops to explore that area. If you are lucky enough to get a bus with 'Live commentary' using the free headphones you can hear a more detailed description of what you see on the tour in English or choose a pre recorded commentary in several languages.

    A very good bus tour taking in all the major sights. Tour guide was knowledgeable if not a bit too opinionated as millennials seem to be today. We didn’t want her political views or opinions on ‘animal prisons’ aka the zoo. Leave that at home when you come to work...we just wanted the unbiased fats of Berlin!
