An exciting guided tour with many stories surrounding it. Our guide answered many questions in a friendly, competent and, if appropriate, child-friendly way. It was a lot of fun. The 2 hours passed very quickly!

We really enjoyed the tour because Claas was able to show many hidden details about the Bundestag that we would never have found otherwise. We also really liked his Berlin snout. Again and again next time

Great tour with lots of information and insider tips. Anyone interested in the history of the Wall is in the right place here.

It was just a little difficult to find our guide, he could have had a flag with the abbreviations that were in our info.

Our tour guide Carlo explained the historical sights around the Berlin Wall to us very nicely and in detail.
