Only some of the busses had live commentary (in German). Some of them had no guide while the leaflet said they always had. The english/french audio guides were very limited compared to the live German guides (if available). The 30 minutes break just before the Bahnhof stop was also very unexpected. The busses drove perfectly on time though.

The information was plain boring, didn't learn anything and was annoyed by the voices and the "act".There was a real guide on board, but he only spoke in German - may have been more useful if he were the one speaking in English, most of us were tourists anyway...but at least got a nice overview of the city from the...

What an interesting place. Seeing the palaces and buildings of the 18th century Prussia and Brandenburg and the stories behind them. The history story is more exciting than the buildings... a must do...

We were visiting Potsdam arriving at 11.00 and decided to take the City Sightseeing bus tour. After purchasing tickets we were told that the bus would leave at 11.40. It arrived at 11.45 and everyone got on and settled down ready to enjoy the tour - the bus didn't move. We were then told to get on another bus -... More

Barry was our guide and he did an extraordinary job considering the obstacles the day presented- people not returning on time, missed trams and busses, a very large group, train delays. He was very entertaining and quite knowledgeable on the history of the city, from early days through World War II. There was an elderly couple with us who weren't... More

About the only useful aspect of this tour is the transportation itself. Otherwise, the English audio guide available in the bus was atrocious. The recording is very amateurish and confusing, as it's not properly synced up to where the bus actually is. You will often find yourself looking desperately out the window trying to locate the objective being talked about... More

We had grand plans of riding through Potsdam however we decided on a bus tour after heavy rainfall. Advertised as live english commentary did not happen but you get a headset and have to have high volume to drown out the german commentary (live). We did the tour in full, had lunch in the Dutch quarter and then walked through... More

What a beautiful city! Our tour guide, Mattie, was excellent and provided interesting comment and history as we strolled through the parks, palace grounds and city center of Potsdam. It is a lot of walking so we were fortunate to have beautiful weather. I wish the lunch break would have been longer as there is no time to do anything... More

Spent a wonderful day in Potsdam after visiting Berlin for 4 days. Easy access by train and then used the hop on hop off bus. Such a beatiful town with so many things to see.have lunch in the Dutch quarter then a few hours discovering new sights and beautiful scenes, a must visit.
