Due to the pandemic, there were not enough tickets to visit the Reichstag building / visit the Bundestag and the dome. It would have been useful to have been informed at the time of booking, which was a pity. The tour itself was competent, ironic and humorous, friendly and open to questions. I can recommend it.

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.
