Along with others we felt it was poor quality. The staff were disinterested, rude and unhelpful. They seemed more concerned about the timings for each leg of the tour and guide simply diregarded the printed guidance regarding time. The guide, once off the bus, ran off ahead at a pace that no one could keep up with, and she cared... More

This tour is reasonable but beware! They do not deliver what they promise. 1) Their agent on the train platform when we arrived told us there was live commentary in English. Not true. There is a taped commentary that says one or two sentences which is a fraction of what the German guide is saying. Also the taped commentary is... More

Lots of the sites were under construction and you don't get a lot of time at each stop. It felt rushed. The tour guide was very nice and she spoke English for us. If you have time for this city take a whole day and spend the day there. We were flying to Munich that night and didn't have a... More

I often do bus tours when visiting somewhere new and this is the first time I've had a negative experience with one so really wasn't expecting that. Most companies who run these tours do so for tourists and put some effort in to making it an enjoyable or at least informative experience. This company may be trying to achieve too... More

This tour company advertises a hop on hop off tour but only stops at 3 places for 20 to 30 minutes each. The map on the brochure shows 26 places but the bus only goes past these, you cannot get on and off as you please like normal hop on hop off buses. Our ticket showed 1.5 hours confirmed verbally...

Great 2.5 hour journey through the main sights of Potsdam. Really well worth the time and money. Although a native English speaker, I've lived in Germany for 20 years, so did not need the English commentary, so I can't speak for those reviewers who had a bad experience trying to listen to the tour through English only. What I can... More

This three hour bus trip with guide was in German and English. We hopped off at three major sites and got a short but very informative tour at each. This was in addition to commentary from the bus. Our guide Yorta was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and helped us understand the history politics and architecture etc. As well as... More

Took this tour after hearing it would take a long time to walk to Sanssouci park so we boarded this bus for only €15 thanks to the Welcome to Berlin ticket. It stops at 4 locations, Neues Palais, Schloss Sanssouci and Hollandisches Viertel. You get at 20 minutes to have a look at each site apart from the last one... More

We had the worst experience possible. They advertised and sold the tour as an english/german-speaking tour... NO ENGLISH IS SPOKEN DURING THE ENTIRE TOUR! We had to read from wikipedia in order to make the most out of the "tour"; we couldn't even communicate with the tour guide nor the bus driver! BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T SPEAK ANY ENGLISH AT ALL!!...

Potsdam is famous for two reasons: one is that it was the home and the retreat of the various Kings and Emperors who ruled Prussia and Germany. Frederick the Great’s palace of Sanssoucci and his grave are here for example. Secondly another palace in Potsdam was the site of the last of the war time conferences of the Allies during... More
