The tour goes on over the Alexanderplatz, with its Red Town Hall and World Clock, to the Brandenburg Gate, which has recently become one of the real highlights of the festival.

Our tour guide was excellent and really knows Berlin well. We are Berliners so were very happy to learn something new along the way. The driver had such a challenging job maneuvering the bus through a completely congested city. We were so grateful for all the extra effort they went to to make sure we saw all the sites as close as possible. It was a very long evening but well worth it. Thank you so much.

Delightful Experience!

I was the only english speaking member on the tour so the guide had to translate everything she said for me. She did a very good job. She even thanked me for joining in the tour, which I thought was very thoughtful of her. I enjoyed every minute of the trip apart from the rainy weather but all in all a great and delightful experience!

Great time on the last light ride of 2012

Very entertaining guide with a good sense of humor (he just can't sing), and a great bus driver who also can handle tough rights and tricky situations. As promised there was an open roof, and it included 2 stops and lasted a total of 2 hours. The tour is also good for people who don't like sightseeing bus tour. I gave this 'only' 4 stars since unfortunately the lighted scenes are only privately funded and not sponsored by the city.
