5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This was a fantastic experience. If you want a blend of the old and new Berlin, then this is the tour for you. We had a wonderful guide named Michael. He has a real in-depth knowledge of Berlin. He enlightened with facts about early German life in the area. Then he brought is to the WWII era, where he tied the life in East a Berlin to those who lived in the West. He took us to ALL the pertinent historical places and provided interesting insights and anecdotes. The walking was not too bad...where comfortable shoes.
