Number of the group 25, nice size. First a short tour (approx. 75 minutes) through the government district with interesting information, then a 45-minute presentation in the Bundestag's visitors' gallery. Both were presented in a relaxed and funny way and were therefore very entertaining. Finally, the visit to the dome was to be completed at your own pace with the option of an audio guide, which we also used and learned a lot here with a view over Berlin. The tour took us 3 hours in total.

Unfortunately, we had missed the meeting point because of a previous tour, but after a few phone calls to the hotline it finally worked out and we found each other (thank you very much for the trouble at this point!). The advantage of booking via GetYourGuide was that there were still places available at short notice that had long since ceased to be offered via the Bundestag's visitor service.
