€22 for a day hop-on-hop-off trip on the Yellow Bus Tour. The trip took about 2 hours to go the full way round but there are so many stops along the way it can take the whole day. They do offer a 2 day ticket but we did not do this. The staff at the stops were very friendly and... More

Berlin has so much to see that a hop on hop off bus tour is a must. This service has a very good audio i.e. has clarity of speech and a great choice of sights to see. But two things of note. One is that a gap appears on the audio every so often. But the most annoying element was... More

We paid €52 for a ticket that lasts 2 days and to be honest we just found it really boring so got off after about 5-6 stops .... when the bus it stopped to let people on and off it sat there for ages! We got off and walked the rest of the way round which was a much better... More

Deep winter. Will the buses run? Will we be able to see anything? Well yes the buses run from 9am until 5pm. Yes you can see plenty even when it's snowing and gets dark from 4pm. In fact it was lovely to be aboard a nice warm bus being told what you are seeing and a bit of history in... More

Went on the tour that was recommended by the hotel - what a waste of time and money. We booked tickets online only to be told by the driver we must exchange for paper tickets. Fine. Hop on the bus and it wasn't clear where headphones where (in a box thrown half way down the bus). The bus itself was... More

Maybe it was in summertime holidays, we never had to wait for long. We took a ticket for Hop-on-hop-off for 2days, and decided the place to visit, once on the bus. We were lucky enough to have booked our hotel almost in front of the bus stop; if you are in the same case, I recommend to try. There's also... More

Initially I would have said this was a convenient service and would have even overlooked the somewhat rude drivers however.... when my son and I bought the tickets we were told LAST PICK UP WAS 5PM .... this is a LIE!!! At 5 the driver continued to the next stop then stopped the bus, turned it off and didn't say... More

Tour was recommended by concierge at our hotel. Only took cash, so we missed a couple of busses going to the ATM to get Euros. We were told the route took 2 hours. It took over an hour to get through the first quarter of the route. Canned spiel made it hard to tell which buildings and sites were being... More

Ignore the `the only way to see a city is to walk it` gang. In my experience if you are on a short city break the best way to get your bearings is to do a hop on-hop off bus tour and this one is as good as any to do. We got a 2 day ticket, at €24 each.... More
