I would recommend to come half an hour earlier and make sure you're waiting in the right spot, cause there are different pick up spots for different companies. You would then wait in line and first comes first gets preferred seat. If you want the guided tour to be in a specific language you have to actively ask for the headset before the beginning of the tour, cause there isn't anyone who would just offer that option to you lol The tour itself was so much fun. Recommended.

Miha was terrific, very knowledgeable and friendly. By the end of our time together I felt I had made a friend. His range of experience and knowledge was very broad and touched on nightlife, Berlin history, art, culture, and even religion. A wonderful man. I hope to see him in New York soon!

In just 1 hour with us, you can get a varied and entertaining impression of Berlin even as a family with 3 children!

Everything went perfectly, friendly service on board. I will definitely do it again soon.

It was great! But there was no food only drinks were available.
