We purchased the yellow tour. Some buses, yes - as others state, we're old and run down. Some intercom systems weren't working. Bus stops weren't clear at all so we hopped back on where we'd hopped off! On a whole we enjoyed our tour and retrieved information we otherwise wouldn't have known.

We had used the Hop on Hop off buses in Budapest and Prague prior to getting to Berlin. We purchased the Big Tick three day pass, plus the boat cruise. The tour in the former West Berlin was pretty good; the tour in the former East Berlin was pretty poor! The claim that there is a bus every 10 minutes... More

I'd been advised to take a tour to get a wider view of what was in the city - I'm here for 7 days, there's a lot to see (very spread out), and so I took up the advice. It's approx 2hs - those complaining about traffic & stops, it's a Capital City! Try getting round major London landmarks in... More

The route that appears online does not match to the information on the printed vouchers. I thought I bought two different routes from 2 different companies, but it turned out both were BBS. BBS has 2 routes in Berlin - the yellow and the purple, identified by a colored square in the window (all buses are yellow). The yellow route... More

Adverised as a two hour fifteen minute circular bus tour. Actually on the move for about 40 minutes. The rest of the time you are in traffic jams or waiting for lengthy periods at stops. Very poor!!

My husband and I picked up a leaflet at our hotel for the city bus tour with the number one city circle trip in Berlin. You could get 1 or 2 day options which cover, East Berlin, West Berlin or a combination of the both. We chose the East Berlin route, as we particularly wanted to visit the Berlin Wall... More

We took a trip with this bus . Excelent 2 hours yellow tour. 99% sightseeing was covered .22 EUR it is valueable for that.

I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Berlin for the first time. I booked it through my hotel, met with some very helpful staff at the bus stops. There are many locations to take in and very informative audio guide available in up to 19 languages. Overall good value for money and worth doing at least for one day.

Be ready enjoyed this tour. The time went so quickly. The staff in the shop at the bus stop and the bus driver were brilliant. There is a hand symbol on the pad… Don't press it ........we witnessed lots of people trying to get it to work by pressing on and off. That said if you do have a problem... More

€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
