This was a great tour. I was actually quite surprised how informative it was. Stefan was a great guide and was very informative, not only on the Reichstag but also the history of the local area. Getting a briefing on the parliament was also very interesting and is well worth visit. We thorough enjoyed this activity and surprised how good the tour was. Stefan the guide also made it very enjoyable.

It was a very rainy and stormy day. My husband and I got to the meeting point 15 minutes early. Our guide asked us to wait in a warm and dry place as there were still participants to come. Unfortunately, they were still not there 10 minutes after the meeting point. Still we waited. Unfortunately it was not canceled and our guide was very uncomfortable. Even if it got off to a bumpy start, our guide got everything out of it. We had a great tour, the best information and could see everything. It's a shame that there are people who think they don't have to cancel and leave it at that with the statement that they have finally paid for it and do not have to come. All the better that there are people like our guide. We were very happy!

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!
