Checkpoint Charlie
Checkpoint Charlie, the name was given by the Western Allies to the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War (1947–1991). Take opportunity to visit Wall-Museum to explore history of Berlin and former GDR.
The Gendarmenmarkt is a famous square in Berlin including the Berlin concert hall and the French and German Churches. In the centre of the square stands a monumental statue of poet Friedrich Schiller. The square was created by Johann Arnold Nering at the end of the seventeenth century as the Linden-Markt and reconstructed by Georg Christian Unger in 1773. The Gendarmenmarkt is named after the cuirassier regiment Gens d'Armes, which had stables at the square until 1773.

Overlooked Important Sites
, Aug 2021
This tour was great except the audio portion barely acknowledged the sites that memoralized the atrocities of World War II. No mention of The Memorial of Murdered Jews even though we drove past it. Only slight mention of The Topography of Terror.

good way to get the important sights and know what to come back to if you want for a longer time....good information on headphones
No sales staff available
, Nov 2019
There was no staff available to redeem tickets for us so were unable to use our tour and ended up walking a lot further than we planned. very disappointed, when a person purchases a tour like this we should get the tickets from Viator and not have to go to a redemption center and that for me goes for all tours - there were other tours we had purchased that we also had to go to redemption centers which doesn't make sense - we have asked for a full refund for this tour as we were unable to use any part of it.
Great way to get an overview of the city!
, Nov 2019
In the last few new places I have visited, the HOHO tours are the best way to get an overview of the city. This tour was no exception and it was really great! I coupled this tour with a walking historic tour (previous day) and between the two tours, I had a really great Berlin experience. The HOHO tour is definitely one I would recommend on a first day, because it points out the main attractions so you know where to visit and/or spend additional time! I rated this a 4 instead of 5 because the stops were not clearly marked and I was concerned that I would not find a stop.

Need to repair voice machines. Driver was very good. Needs to upgrade system on bus. Very nice people to help.
Just say no.
, Oct 2019
What a horrible ride. Stop and go, almost constantly. Could probably walk the route faster. Bus drivers are no help for information, and there are not staff at every stop. Some of the things the narrator talks about are not visible, or hard to understand which building is being talked about. Skip this company.

Wasted Our Money
, Sep 2019
We were unable to use our tickets. Where we had to pick them up at was on the opposite side of town. We were not clear on which hop-on-hop-off bus we could take. The buses we saw were not yellow as pictured. We wasted our money and will not buy tickets in advance for buses.
Very good tour

Good bus tour. Shows all the important historical places. Keep in mind that it only works till 6 pm.
not the greatest

There were 3 different companies providing tours. The other companies had signs on where the buses stopped. This company did not and we spent 45 minutes constantly moving around a huge round about to get to the right place for the bus to stop. One almost had to take the complete tour to find the stops. If I did this again I would use one of the other companies. Never did get the boat tour as the tour stopped at 6:00 p.m. no matter where they were. We ended up walking several miles to get back to our hotel just so we could see several of the sights. Was not worth the money.
