Guide (Andy) very charming. Tour very informative and interspersed with little anecdotes ;) No waiting time in front of the entrance to the Reichstag. The tour also includes an introduction to how the Bundestag works. Who sits where and why 😁 This part is carried out by the Bundestag visitor service. This part was also charming and informative (also for our kids aged 8 and 12). It was worth it!!!

Beautiful panoramic view. The well-kept and not full room created a relaxing atmosphere. Welcoming and kind staff. Mignon and special and delicious drinks as an aperitif snack. I was satisfied, despite the slightly high price, because the visit to the Reichstag is allowed with audio guides, which unfortunately I was unable to book otherwise.

Everything was well organized with entry into the Bundestag and a tour of the spectator gallery in the plenary hall. Our guide explained things clearly and was considerate of everyone in the group. Great experience.

The tour was very informative and communicated very well by our guide. The organization was well thought out.

Guide was in a good mood and showed us the Fette Henne well.
