We were lured into joining this city tour of potsdam being promised all sorts of things....don't do it, it's a waste of money and to top it all off our audio wasn't working. We tried for several minutes until finally a girl came and couldn't fix it. So we had to go doenstairs and it worked there but the views... More

It was a good sunny weather when we visited the very historic and old city near Berlin Germany. Potsdam city is more than one thousand years old and is famous for its beautiful architecture. The entire city is very clean and beautiful. Tour guide could explain the history of the city palaces nicely. It takes around 3 hours for the... More

We took the tour from the train station and stayed on until it finished full circle getting off at a little market street which was lovely. We saw the Kaiser summer residences, the KGB offices, the bridge where they swapped spies and it was very interesting. It was well worth seeing.

We began our adventure at Zoologischer Garten station where we were met by the very friendly and approachable Caroline (from Germany - excellent English speaker and a great sense of humour). She made sure we all made it on and off the correct train and bus which was impressive as there were 20 of us on the tour! Once in... More

We took the 2-hour tour around Potsdam. The city and the palaces as well as the old town are worth a visit, but this tour was a disappointment. The guide bellowed only in German despite the promise in the brochure as well as at the ticket counter that it would be live commentary also in English. The recorded guide-talk was... More

We took the train from Berlin to Potsdam (only half an hour from Alexanderplatz). Potsdam is a beautiful town. It is naturally beautiful with lakes and nature. We decided to take the hop on and off Potsdam City Tour bus from the train station. The service is informative and provides tours in German and English using earphones and other language... More

This was a bus tour for us but one that should us we would need to return to Berlin to cover more of this area, it was 1.3/4 of an hour but covered much in that time, so much that we will need to go back and visit all the areas on the tour.

We only went to Potsdam to get to Schloss Sans Souci but eneded up doing the Bus Tour of the city! Well worth it! Didn't realise the size and scale of Potsdam nor the historical significance of the place. It has so much to see. We would recommend you do the full tour (approx 1.5 Hours) before getting off as...

Great way to see Potsdam in a short time as we went by train from Berlin for the day. Guide was really good,very informative,two or three stops, you could explore on your own or follow the guide. Gardens are beautiful,palaces massive, Potsdam is charming and well worth a visit. Tour is well worth the 10 euros.

We decided to join the tour since our time in Potsdam was limited. Seemed like a sweet deal, but the live guide spoke so loudly we couldn't possibly hear the english prerecording. We decided to drop out of the tour, since the bus smelled quite badly of gazoline.
