For Bowie fans, this is not only a great insight into Bowie's time in Berlin, but a glance back into the divided city of the early 1980s...with musical accompaniment.

My husband and I took the intro to Berlin tour with Dan in September. It was very enjoyable and educational. As an Interior Designer, I really enjoyed the architectural slant that Dan put on the tour.
