We did the German speaking tour because the Dutch ones were full. Although not everything was easy for us to follow, the enthusiasm of the guide who led us through the Gov district and the beauty of the building made up for it. Amazing experience

Relaxed leader with wonderfully slight sarcasm when explaining political connections. According to my taste. Very informative and realistic. My children (15 and 18) also liked it a lot.

It was told in a very pleasant way, so that it was understandable and interesting for everyone in the group. It is therefore also suitable for children. We loved it!

Very interesting and competent tour through the city. Thanks very much!

Everything went very well, our guide was very friendly and informative
