This was a total rip off! We got roped into it by the tourist office at Potsdam station. I must say the saleswoman really misguided us. We already had a Berlin all zones travel pass and it was valid for use on the public bus that runs to the same points. This tourist bus has a lousy audio guide and... More

If its your first visit to this beautifull place, then take the bus tour. Stunning archetecture and you get a feel for the town and orientation. Main commentary in German of course, but translations in English are adequate. We got a discount via the Berlin Card, which is probably the best value. You can of course walk Postdam, but need...

We travelled down from Berlin and found Potsdam to be very interesting, well worth a visit. We visir Berlin frequently and may well look to stay in Potsdam next visit as the S Bahn service between Berlin and Potsdam is very good.

We were sold this tour when arriving by train at Potsdam station and advised that buses were available every 30 minutes. However what we were not told was that all hop on hop off buses finished at 5pm. The English and other language commentaries were via headphones with the German commentary given by the tour guide on the bus. They... More

This tour was a great value for the price. Nearly a full day is spent walking around multiple castles and 'summer homes' of past German royalty. The basic ticket price was only 14 euros (you also need to purchase an ABC train ticket) - but the amount of knowledge our guide (Steve) packed in was well worth the price. Steve... More

Remember to get your train ticket validated in the red box at any train station you enter as the fine has gone from 40 euros to 60 euros and the checkers seem to target unsuspecting tourists with backpacks. The city of Potsdam is very quaint and the many castles and gardens are a breath of fresh air from a more... More

After 3 days of walking around Berlin & blisters the size of small planets on my feet, I decided to get to Potsdam & find a bus tour! After doing my research on Potsdam I knew there was plenty to see and do & thought a tour would be the best way to see and do as much as we... More

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
