Our tour guide was Maria. She is the Bomb! She definitely knows her facts and figures, and made the 4 hours fly by.
We started in West Berlin, and met right in front of McDonald's by the Zoo. Tidbit here: the tour ends at the Brandenburg gate, not where it began. So if you drive to the zoo like we did, you have to pay to park for 4 hours, then take a bus easiest way or train back. It's probably easier to just use public transportation/taxi on both ends.
Also, be prepared for a good 3 hours of walking. It went by quickly and was well worth it, but you still need to be prepared. There was a nice break in the middle at a coffee shop Waycup Coffee and More. They offered a variety of coffee drinks, soft drinks, sandwiches, and vegetarian dishes.
This tour is well worth the time and money, and provides a great overview of Berlin's long and complex history.

The tour was excellent! It is most recommended on your first day in Berlin, giving great orientation both in Berlin's historical timeline and in the places you might want to see. Mr Dumpsy demonstrated deep knowledge of Berlin's history and connected it well to the current days. His great ability to tell stories and sharing interesting anecdotes kept the group intrigued and anticipating during the whole four hours.

This was the highlight of our Berlin trip.

My friend and I recently traveled to Berlin to celebrate the New Year, but this tour was superior to any I have ever been on before. Our tour guide, Brian, was incredibly knowledgable about German history, and used his theatre background to tell our group compelling stories about the sites we were visiting, often complete with architectural trivia and character voices. I can't believe how good this tour was for how little it cost. So, so worth it.
