The tour guide Taylor is a consummate professional along with his delivery of the material including visual aids. Starting at S + U Zoologischer Garten station where it is recommended that you get a day pass for the A+B zones because the tour involves the use of the train. There are many stops along the way with opportunities to browse exhibits/museums pertaining to the tour, to ask questions and take photos.

I absolutely loved this tour and can't recommend it enough. Our tour-guide Maria shared so much great information and inside perspective about this era of Berlin that really helps you understand the city.
Also you're moving through different parts of the city and getting to see the impact of communism in different neighborhoods around the city. The ghost station were awesome. The tour ends at the Stasi Museum, which I recommend visiting if you have the chance. A MUST!

He is an amazing guide on this tour as he detailed the stories behind each historical places, buildings,streets. He was able to explain it beautifully as if we were back in time especially the start and fall of the Berlin Wall.
It's been the most enjoyable and knowledgeable trip we had, it is highly recommended!
