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.

Our leadership has told one or the other from the life of the divided Berlin. Very interesting despite the rain. Unfortunately, there was no more plenary session.

Andy did an awesome job! Keeping it interesting, yet light and entertaining. Lecture in the Plenärsal was brilliant! I never go with tours, but this one changed my mind!

The tour was amazing. Eva was sensational. Very knowledgeable about the history of the Reichstag and the whole of Berlin, she explained very well everything we saw. Very nice, she made us feel that the two and a half hours passed in an instant. Thank you Eva!!!

Ausführliche Erklärungen des Guides, unkomplizierter Zugang. Ein wenig viel Wiederholungen, keine Absprache mit dem Bundestagsmitarbeiter. Insgesamt zu empfehlende Tour👍
