The brochure says this is 'hop on-hop off' but it isn't. It is a guided tour - you have to get off and on when they tell you. They shuffle you quickly from one place to another without enough time to see anything properly. There isn't even enough time for a toilet stop. The guide we had was very friendly... More

This tour redeamed itself near the end, when we visited the location of the Potsdam Conference, but the "quirky" bus is very uncomfortable, you can only sit down stairs if you need another language apart from German, because that's where the headphones are, and the headphone sound quality was so bad, we gave up in the end. Also, the English... More

My husband & I had arrived at Potsdam train station and were immediately approached by several tourist information guides. The guide with best English gave the whole spiel about their tour as opposed to doing it yourself on the free transport bus. We asked was it in English and was assured it was. There was no mention of the English... More

€13.50 with the Berlin Welcome card for a 2.5 hour tour yet I think it is a waste of money. We were not given the option to choose our seats on the tour bus thus we were placed downstairs, the layout of the ceiling limits your view of the window, you basically see the ceiling and other people heads. We... More

we were told by the tourist information office at the station that this was the only tour available and that it would be suitable for English language. The English language passengers were shoved in seats facing inwards at the back of the top, and given headphones. I tried 4 pairs before giving up. The verbal commentary from the guide was... More

We were talked into doing this tour as soon as we got off the train at Potsdam and paid 30 Euros. We were assured that there would be live English commentary, as well as German. The reality was that there was NO English commentary by the guide and the headphones (which were used and dirty) had strongly accented English commentary... More

We visited Potsdam for only a day. This is a tour designed to give you an overview of the city of Potsdam. It makes three stops- at the Neues Palais, Schloss Sanssouci, and Schloss Cecilienhof where you can get out and see (but not go in) to the palace locations. As other reviewers have stated, the prime language (live) is... More

Tour was 90% for Germans. was told it was English and German. Had headphones while in driving mode and most od the time it just played music. The Germans received a full live commentary. We stopped three places and she would first talk in German and then in English. She was very hard to understand and didn't know English well... More

We thought of visiting Potsdam on a 2.5 hr tour on the old-style buses. Took a Kaiser Tour" and it was the worst decision ever. We asked for an English tour at the Tourists' Information office and was directed to the Kaiser Tour with a guide, which stops at 3 places. That sounded just fine but: 1. Once we got... More

Decided to go on a sightseeing tour of Potsdam from our normal holiday in Berlin. It cost €36 for 2 adults, which would have been worth it had the tour been to an acceptable standard! From the moment we arrived on the bus, the driver who seated us was very rude and wasn't very welcoming. He was very stern and... More
