Really great live commentary the young man from Australia was particularly informative and helpful. Would definitely recommend this trip.

Great intro to the basics of the city - except we had to guide for the "blue" route which goes farther into East Berlin.

The tour was quite informative and used a human guide for part of it and prerecorded information for the other. The only problems we had was that I wasn’t sent any information on where to find the bus stops so we lost a bit of time and I had to contact La Vacanza Travel by phone to get directions. Also it wasn’t 100% clear which Chanel in the headphones to listen to to get the English guide- some I for on a sticker next to Chanel changer would be useful.
