Well organised trip with very experienced guide

First a multi langual guide that, even on his birthday, would lead the group of 14 in an enthousiatic way around the reichstag buildings. Gave a lot of background information on the surroundings. Second the professional german guide of reichstag explained in a detailed but still humoristic way the proceedings of reichstag employees. Lastly a walk around the rooftop and dome with splendid view over Berlin. Explanation with free audioguide multiple (also dutch) language. Good value for maney, to skip the line when free tours are already sold out.

Extremely interesting, architectural, historical, and informative tour

All in all this tour was every penny worth it... Eckie (Eckerhard) was the perfect guide. Funny and with great overall and personal historic knowlegde (Knowlegde of the german language is necessary on this tour. I translated to english my teenage son) We enjoyed the tour very much and the stay i the centre of the german political system. The "Kuppel" was fantastic.

Great tour!

We were able to book this tour very last minute and glad we did so. The tour takes you from the Brandenburg Gate, through the area around the Reichstag that houses the representatives and different ministries and then allows you access to the "Plenarsaal", the room where the German Bundestag meets. The grand finale of the tour was the hike up the glass dome of the Reichstag. Our tour guide was phenomenal and the information was well presented and fascinating. I had booked the tour in German, so I can't speak for the English speaking guides, but the content presented and the price makes this an experience you don't want to miss.
