Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Berlin!

Accommodation: Hollywood Media Hotel Berlin

Say "Guten tag" to Berlin! Arrive in Germany's capital and head to your accommodation. After settling in, start exploring this fascinating city!

Begin at Berlin's iconic landmark, the Brandenburg Gate. Built between 1789 and 1791, the Greek revivalist gate symbolizes a reunited Berlin. Day or night, a photo in front of the gate is a must!

Day 2: Berlin

Activate your hop-on/hop-off bus pass! For the next 48 hours, you can use this ticket to visit some of Berlin‘s attractions, including the famous avenue Kurfürstendamm and Potsdam Square.

You should also activate your museum pass, which gives you three days of admission to all the major museums in the city. A definite highlight is Museum Island, an island in the heart of Berlin that is home to five museums. Don't miss the famous bust of Nefertiti at the Neues Museum!

Berlin City Circle Tour (48-hour ticket)

Make the most of your Berlin adventure with this time-saving hop-on/hop-off bus tour! See the main attractions and landmarks at ease including the Kurfürstendamm, Brandenburg Gate, and Potsdam Square.

The yellow double-decker buses leave approximately every 10-15 minutes (depending on the season) from each of the 20 hop-on hop-off locations, and you can plan your individual sightseeing tour. Visit iconic memorials, window-shop at world-famous shopping centers, and follow the footsteps of history with help from this sightseeing bus pass.

3-Day Berlin Museum Pass

Discover Berlin's many museums with the 3-day Museum Pass! Enjoy free entry to over 30 exhibitions and museums including Alte Nationalgalerie and Museum Island, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 3: Berlin

Continue exploring Germany‘s capital with your hop-on/hop-off pass. Disembark at any bus stop to visit museums, go shopping, or stroll through Berlin's eclectic neighborhoods. Berlin captivates visitors with its extraordinary variety of monuments and rich cultural life.

In the afternoon, enjoy your included admission to the Television Tower. From 1200 feet above ground, you can see all districts in the capital!

In the evening, taste one of Berlin's iconic street foods - currywurst! This popular dish was invented in 1949 by Herta Heuwer when she mixed ketchup and curry powder (from British soldiers) and poured it over grilled pork sausage.

Television Tower admission

Built during the years of the German Democratic Republic, the 1,207-foot Television Tower on Alexanderplatz is the highest building in Europe open to the general public and an iconic symbol of Berlin. With this admission, enjoy 360 stunning panoramic views from the viewing platform where you can see all districts of the capital of Germany.

When I booked with Great Value I was nervous because it seemed too good to be true. Nope, just a really great deal. I was able to take my dream trip to Ireland and Scotland and it was within my budget. Everything was covered, my lodging, flights, and rental car. There was no hidden fees, or fine print that would nickel and dime me later on, as "good deals" usually have. I also had to change the date of my trip and the customer service was excellent and this change was simple. Thank you Great Value, I'll be using you every time I travel from now on

Everything on the trip was excellent. The only concern with any services from GVV was initial communications ahead of the trip regarding when and how we'd receive all our travel vouchers, as some were available online, and some were to be picked up in country upon arrival. It took no less than 5 phone calls to learn some vouchers would be picked up in country. The trip was outstanding, exhausting, but gloriously beautiful. It was exhausting from the perspective of moving around the country and only a few places were 2 nights. But, we knew that going in, and we wanted to see ALL of Switzerland and this certainly checked those boxes. We saw majestic mountains, we saw countless waterfalls and glaciers. The trains in Switzerland were all clean and we felt safe. The hotels were good with delicious breakfasts each morning. Overall, I would recommend GVV to a friend or family member and I would personally book another vacation with GVV.

This was my first time planning a trip out of the country. I read previous reviews who had a good experience with Great Value Vacation. Our trip was amazing! The booking and reservations were easy to use with the vouchers provided. The staff was helpful. The only downside was I upgraded to have an automatic vehicle and they gave me a stick shift. It took a while to get sorted out but other than that I loved my trip! I will definitely use great value vacations again when I book my next trip. I opted for the additional wine tasting package and I did not regret it! I recommend adding those additional tours to get a more complete experience.

My wife and I recently booked our vacation through Great Value Vacations. We were a bit nervous to travel to Europe for the first time, but we are glad we did. Great Value Vacations took care of us. Great customer service. Seamless transactions. They booked the hotels and flights for us. All we had to worry about were the daily activities! I would highly recommended them. The hotels offered through the package were as advertised: nice and in great locations. The flights times were also convenient. The best part was the price. I am thankful for the experiences Great Value Vacation was able to provide for us!

Really enjoyed both of my trips through Great Value Vacations. I went on one family trip to Ireland (Adare villa, rental car with trips out to Dublin, Cliffs of Moher and more) . The villa was very comfortable with a kitchen, three bedrooms, and proximity to the local shops /restaurants. We were able to upgrade to an automatic car and had fun navigating to each location on our itinerary. The trip as planned by the agency still leaves time for exploring on your own and since we picked a trip with our own transportation, we had flexibility on which tours we wanted to do and when.

My second trip was a solo trip to Scotland. I like to go on vacation by myself sometimes, but it can be hard to find ones where you aren’t penalized for being on your own. This train trip to Edinburgh, Inverness, and Glasgow worked out really well for me. The hotels were all near the train stations and in safe areas (good lighting, plenty of people, etc.). I got a good mix of options for sightseeing in each city. The hop-on, hop-off bus circuit was especially useful for getting around Edinburgh. I also added an extra tour on in Glasgow to see nearby castles and a distillery and was very glad to have done so as the views of the countryside were amazing!

Summary: Have enjoyed my previous experiences and would definitely use again

Just got back from our trip to Italy booked through Great Value Vacations & was our dream come true! We could not have gone if it were not for their unbelievable rates. Each 4 Star Villa we stayed at was above and beyond our expectations...I cried after leaving each part of our journey. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking with them. Besides the Villas being beautiful, great locations, clean, and great staff; each place we arrived at actually said, "They said to give you a very nice room." (with a rate of just under $1,900 a piece for 9 nights not counting travel days at 4 stars Villas in Rome, Tuscany, & Venice including airfare and rent a car... a few friends told us to expect the worst rooms at the places we were staying ~ NOT the case! Our rooms had the best views...I could go on and on. Every step of the way was smooth with no worries whatsoever. Thanks again GVV! LOVED IT!
