Excellent tour, memorable experience

Very well organised visit. We had a passionate guide and polite, Ewa, who gave us a lot of information and showed us historical and comparative pictures, thus providing the necessary background of all the phases of its past. Very impressive structure, with a dramatic past, but brilliantly represents today the efforts to pass the story on with respect, to the future for free generations of citizens. Calculate two hours at least!

A great find, well worth it!

A great find, well worth it! I believe the guide’s name was Ava. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and though we know we booked a tour in German she took care to try to catch us up in English as much as she could. Her English was far better than our German. :) Skipping the lines for the dome alone was worth it, but also appreciated the walking tour and ability to sit in in on the Bundestag session.

Fun and Interesting tour

We had a great tour. Even though we were the only English speakers on the tour, our guide Stefan took some time to explain some of the sights and history we were seeing in English, which we appreciated. We were able to pick up a few German words here and there - and being able to see the Dome was the icing on the cake. We would recommend this tour for any one interested.
