    Rochele gave us a tremendously engaging day to and from Potsdam. Full of anecdotes, history, open about current living in Berlin, she was the best guides I've had in 20 years of city guides. She won't leave you behind! The tour doesn't take in everything, but enough to give you

    Response from SNE_Violeta, Guest Relations Manager at Potsdam, City of Emperors Walking Tour
    Responded 1 week ago
    Hello 222mat_k, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for joining choosing usin Berlin. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. As there are others waiting to take the tour, we always try our best to make sure the tours depart on time, specially in trips like the one to Postdam, where we have to take public transportation at a specific time. Each independent guide we work with often alters the tour route in order to suit their own style and each group’s dynamic. Many guides also turn off their mobile phones when they are working so as to not disrupt the tour they are giving. This means that when guests arrive late to the start point, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we can locate the group. Pre-booking gives you priority onto the tour over guests with no reservation in the rare case a tour is oversubscribed and saves you from waiting in line upon presenting yourself before the tour to a SANDEMANs NEW Europe employee. However, we do require that you do so no later than 15 minutes before the start of the tour, after which point we reserve the right to allocate your place to somebody else. This is in the interests of fairness to all those wishing to participate on the tour, as well as to ensure their punctual start, and is clearly outlined in our Terms and Conditions. Thank you once more for taking the time to share your thoughts with us, and we’re sorry you weren’t able to join us in Berlin We hope to see you soon on other tours! All the best, The SANDEMANs Team
