What People Are Saying About Berlin
The Friedrichshain Audio Walk was just the tonic for exploring the district's past in an authentic environment. It combined story-telling, humour and information about bulidings and places that you encounter everyday, plus insight into people and their everyday lives at the time.Try to do the tour in the late afternoon, as the last stop where you return the audio guide device is a café/bar that doesn't open until later, which is annoying if you have to go back all the way to the original destination to drop the device off.
The bus part of the tour is quite good as you can just ride it for 3 days and watch Berlin. I loved the recorded audio, except that I don't think the Berlin Tower is the tallest structure in Europe anymore, its the Shard in London. Plus one of the embassies are flipped. It should say the Turkish embassy then the South African embassy. I got a chance to see parts of Berlin I had not seen before so this worked out well; the staff is polite and the buses show just about every ten minutes. Watch for traffic diversions as you will miss parts of the tour. But if you do, just hop on and off again. You can use it as your transportation around Berlin :-). The Spree river cruise was not running for a week, but I did not find out until I got off walked around looked for it, and did not find it. However, I was offered any other tour I wanted, so I picked the asisi promenade which is at Checkpoint Charlie. This museum is worth visiting as well. So I have to come back and do the river cruise
The bus trip is good - it includes all the places you would want and they come frequently, so it is easy to get on and off. They only go in one direction, so you have to plan your departures carefully as 2 hours is a long time to spend re-doing teh circuit (the underground system is easy to use though) The earplugs are awful. The zoo is small in terms of area and large in terms of variety. Most of the spaces for the animals are good, although the primates and big cats were in smaller spaces than one would hope. In the winter, it was empty of people and peaceful, but the animals were also less inclined to be out an about.
The boat trip covers everything you could want to see in a short visit to Berlin; the recorded guide is clear and informative (in over 12 languages!) and the buses comfortable. THe boat trip was shorter than we expected and the commentary not up to the standard set by the bus tour - not enough information on the English Language version, and the headset didn't work very well. The hop-on/off nature of the bus tour is excellent, with the stops well-placed, Drivers and office staff were friendly and helpful. Overall I'd recommend this tour, though maybe we'd take a different boat trip.
