    Our tour guide Seema was amazing. The meeting point was easy to find and she was there promptly. She contacted us ahead of time and catered the tour to our three teenagers perfectly. Not one of them looked at their phone during the 2 hour tour as they were extremely interested in the information she was sharing with them about Hitler and the Third Reich. She took the time to explain the psychology of what happened to the people living during that time and at every point in the tour she left time for the kids to ask questions and look around to absorb what they were learning. The 2 hour tour seemed too short!!! I would highly recommend Seema’s tours.
