Customer Reviews

  • Radek Danhel

    Interesting way to see the most important sights of the city. The live English-speaking guide joined the bus at Checkpoint Charlie, before that recorded commentaries in several languages were available. Unfortunately, the most important places on our tour had to be omitted as there was a demonstration taking place near thv government offices. But thanks to the live guide we were briefly informed about the sites not visited and he showed us other places not included in the original tour.
