I took my class of 18 students on this tour, and they all really enjoyed it. The buses came by regularly, and it was an excellentt, inexpensive way to see the city.

If you refer to the main station as Berlin Hauptbahnhof the bus stops just outside the entrance of the station if you head towards the river spree. Left hand side stop. Should see some City sightseeing bus staff.
