What people are saying about Friedrichstraße

It was wonderful. We did the tour at the beginning of our stay and it gave us a great overview of Berlin and an idea about how wide-spread the city is. It’s a great chance to discover new quarters or to see a lot of the sites, especially when you have a limited amount of time. Also, we were amazed and surprised by how many waterways and harbors there are in the city. Highly recommendable!

Great experience coupled with friendly and helpful staff (both driver and bus-stop coordinators). One gets onto as many bus round trips as desired. I was satisfied with the route because it covered most of the highlights and historic sites Berlin has to offer.

Great way to spend sunday evening in berlin very scenic and calm way to kill a couple of hours Onboard entertainment dont forget to get a translator pack as commentary only in german Drinks available waiter service up top Highly recommend this trip
