We really enjoyed the hop on hop off tour! All the important stops were there and it is a good way to explore Berlin in one day. We got off at the stops that were interesting for us and then took the next bus. We saw the other things from the bus and everything was explained very well and the audio guide speakers didn't make it boring either. We can only recommend the tour. We were out all day and fell asleep at night

Really great, varied - also child-friendly - guided tour through the Pergamon Museum, the entire Museum Island, the Berlin Cathedral (including the viewing platform = wonderful) and the Humboldt Forum. Thank you for the 4 unforgettable hours Mr. Kristiansen! It was great!

Very individual guidance by Mr. Kristiansen. It was possible to do justice to the entire area including Pergamon, Cathedral and Humboldt Forum from different perspectives. 4 hours flew by.

Excellent shows you the highlights of Berlin and at each stop you can get off to take photos or see more in depth and then wait for the next bus to pick you up. Super good. Recommended.

The private vintage car tour was great. The car is a dream, we got a lot of exciting information about Berlin. We can unreservedly recommend it.
