Great breakfast! Easy to get through security and to the restaurant. It's great to come a little earlier and walk around at the top. The restaurant was very easy and pleasant. Food was delicious and way too much to be able to finish it all!

Relaxed leader with wonderfully slight sarcasm when explaining political connections. According to my taste. Very informative and realistic. My children (15 and 18) also liked it a lot.

Wonderful experience. Our guider was excellent with very good knowledge of history, with interesting stories. Enjoyed every single moment.

Staff very friendly. The breakfast is nicely presented and tasty. 1 less slice of ham for 1 yogurt pot and it would be perfect.

Good views, friendly staff and delicious five o'clock tea. Exciting ride in the glass dome.
