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

very disappointed that the tour guide didn't try to give us 8 guests a solution at the onset of the tour, just expected us to listen to 2 hours of german. they returned us some money and expected us to get public bus back to the station after some arguments at the first stop.

On booking this tour we confirmed the requirement for live English commentary. When we arrived at the designated time we were moved from bus to bus and finally told that English commentary is on headphones only. The head phones had dirty foam pads so we were forced to use headphones from previous tour of Berlin. Even so the quality of... More

Diabolical!!! Do not go on this tour if you are English. It is advertised as in English and German with headphone commentary BUT what you get is English commentary through headphones but live German commentary which drowns out the English. On our trip all the Germans were seated at the front of the bus upstairs but the person giving the... More

We tried to look for the tourist info at the station to get a hop on hop off tour, and had a lady on the concourse (with a tourist info badge) bundle us onto this tour....what a sham! It is advertised as in English and German, but what you have is a recorded English version on the bus, whilst the... More

We have done a number of hop on hop off tours and this tour was worth the money. Tickets are available from the Tourist Info Office in the Station or from the bus stop outside the station. After a bit of confusion with buses and problems with the audio on the way to the first stop things looked up. The... More

I have seen 3 tours of Potsdam city. Of these the latest by Kaser tours was the best. The lady explained the history of each palace in English as well as German with a walk cum voice recorded tour. This tour is certainly worth it . It is available out side the other end of Potsdam station.

Because we only had one day to spend in Potsdam, we took the Kaiser-Tour from Potsdam central station . (Our reasonably priced tickets were purchased from the official travel information office situated inside the station.) Our knowledgeable and friendly guide gave commentary in German and English, but headphones were available too on the bus. The three hour tour included:- Neues... More

It is a tourist trap and the best thing is to avoid it. Many agents disperse brochures everywhere and particularly at Potsdam train station. Once you paid the price you are seated in a crowded double-decker and listen to brief explanations in English telling you the dates when different buildings were constructed. The guide talks non stop in German and... More
