The guide was exceptional, very knowledgeable, and his insight into life in East Berlin before the wall came down. The event was the tour of the Reichstag. One of the best guides I have ever had on any tour.

Andy was a really good guide and made the experience memorable. The only comment I would make is that the lecture in the Reichstag by A member of staff there was too long.
