This was a fascinating tour of Potsdam, which should not be missed on a trip to Berlin. We took the 4 hour tour, which actually turned out to be 6 hours. However, our guide Nicolas did such a great job of explaining the history and added depth by providing additional insight regarding who these people actually were. well done!

The Hop on Hop off tour of Potsdam started out great. There is audio commentary which is fairly informative. We got off at one of the stops and returned to meet the bus at the scheduled time. The bus was leaving a few minutes ahead of schedule and we could not get to the stop in time to catch it.... More

English was only available as pre-recorded via earplugs while the German version was distributed over the bus sound system at the same time at such high volume it completely killed any other commentary. No live guiding whatsoever and an extremely rude driver. We jumped off half way and returned to the train station by public bus.

This was exceptional value for money, 3 stops at yhyme key places with guide who had brilliant English and a great sense of humour. We could then either be dropped... More

As we alighted the train at Potsdam we were approached by a tour guide who pointed us in the direction of the bus. As it was winter they were only running two tours, morning and afternoon and not the full hop on hop off service. The tour was a sightseeing tour with three guided stops. It was excellent, and the...

It was a nightmare to find a decent restaurant. Most of the restaurants are full with students and cheap. Food is low quality. The city itself is amazingly nice, but not worth more than a day

Despite the gray, drizzly day my husband and I both enjoyed the walking tour of Potsdam. Our guide, Matti, spoke English very well. His commentary was interesting, detailed, and provided "insider" knowledge that only a student of history would know--which he did, as he studied at the university located in Potsdam. I was originally hesitant to commit 6 hrs. to... More

We have taken many hop-on-hop-off tours in many cities, but this one is one of the best. The commentary is recorded and takes the route of a discussion between two people. This maintains the interest level and you feel as if you are part of a discussion. Well worthwhile!

We took the train from Berlin to Potsdam, included in the Berlin 5 day Welcome Card. Once you have reached Potsdam it is best to take immediately the Hop on Hop Off Buses from the train station. It gets crowded from other points. It costs about Euros 50 for 2 adults and 2 teens. Hassle free and enjoyable ride. The... More
