What people are saying about Brandenburg

I booked the Hop On Hop Off tour. My ticket was good for 48 hours and included a walking tour and curry wurst! I very much enjoyed the bus tour I saw many things I would never have seen and learned a lot as well. The accompanying audio was also very good. This is a good way to get around Berlin.

I would like to thank the tour guide Ronan once again for the excellent and thought-provoking tour. Ronan is indispensable because of his vast knowledge of history. The tour was important, remarkable, and interesting. I highly recommend taking this tour for anyone visiting Berlin.

Our guide, Ronan, is knowledgeable about the topic--just an excetionally well-read man and an excellent communicator. He made me feel comfortable immediately and kept the tour lively and interesting. I highly recommend him.

The drive in only one direction is very good. You can get off anywhere, stroll in the park or in the city and then get back on at one of the stations.

Very informative and great way to see the city. Good value as well as could use throughout the days I was here to get around the city!
