We took the day trip tour with Sandemans - (meet at Brandenburg Gate 11am) after an excellent city tour with the same company. This day tour, which was about 6 hours including train travel, is fantastic value for money at 14 euros plus a zone 1-3 train ticket. We had an excellent guide, Steve, who was a walking encyclopedia and... More

Very pleasant with a well-informed guide. Many were history majors who just enjoy the subject matter. Potsdam is a pleasant relief from Berlin, a "college town" size with vast royal palaces and gardens...

We were advised at the Information Desk at Potsdam Station that this tour offered more flexibility than the guided tour, as we would be able to get on and off the bus when we wished and that the bus ran at 1/2 hour intervals. We were also told that we would get an English audio guide. What we were not... More

We had Luca as our guide.altho it was raining he made it interesting and exciting. He was enthusiastic and knew his history. There were only 5 of us on a 6 hour tour and it cost only 15 euro but we had to pay our own public transport to Potsdam and within. We had passes so no sweat. We went... More

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.

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
