      Informative, inclusive guide.

      Our guide was lovely, welcoming, informative and wanted everyone to feel included. He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and why certain parts were built where etc. As it was in German, I did not understand everything. Inside for our Vortrag, the speaker was at times very clear - I could understand him, but at others spoke very fast Berlinish. The dome visit was excellent and summed up our whole 4 days in Berlin - all the pieces came together. All in all I think it was well thought out.

      Guide and Dome amazing

      The Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, giving us options as we did not speak much German. Although his commentary was in German which we were expecting, he provided summaries in English. The Audio devices in the Dome were in English and were activated by where you had reached in the climb up ti the top of the Dome. We opted to skip the 40 minute talk in German the Plenary Hall.

      very interesting

      It was a very interesting sightseeing, we know a lot more About the area round the Reichstag. The guide tels Us a lot of the old and the New buildings, and the chambers. What he told was actualy and he knows so much off this walk. There was even a part off the Berliner Mauer and he told Us a story About this part. And then te Plenairsaal, into the Reichstag we are listening to a meeting About people off the gouverment. And then the dome with his view About Berlin. A wunderful sight. We recommand this very much too a everyone who will visit Berlin. Please see this Tour bu Get Your Guide. We come back someday and vist it again.
