Professional driver of a Mercedes Sprinter bus. Our guide Emily was excellent, informative and friendly, including all her guests. We saw all the important sites of Potsdam. Good value for money.The trip is as described.

An excellent tour. We enoyed every single minute. Very professional guide, no problems with two l-ges. We learned a lot, the city is magnificent, and so is the palace. Thank you. Highly recommended tour, including for teens.

We loved our visit of Potsdam and of the Sans-Souci royal residence. Our guide, Suzanne, gave generous and interesting explanations. An excellent tour!

The Potsdam sightseeing tour that did not see Potsdam
jacquelinemarcied
, Aug 2019
It was awful. The female guide was speaking both German and English and said much more in German. She said it was her first time going back and forth between both languages. She did not say anything of substance in english. We only saw San Souci, which was not interesting. As an American we were interested in seeing where the treaty was signed, Potsdam, but they did not spend any time there. an Souci is a poor man's Versailles, not worth it. we did not see at all where Winston Churchill and the other world leaders signed the treaty after WWII. terrible and would not have gone.

A nice experience

Everything was o.k The guide spoke German from time to time I would like it to be in English since this is the language I chose while booking the tour. I speak 5 languages and it would be unimaginable if the guide had tried to cater to the language needs of all.

Excellent Tour for limited time
Vacation57394175401

The tour was a great visit for my more limited time available for the trip. With only 4 hours, it's impossible to see everything, but the guide really tried to hit most of the highlights with a bus tour of several parts of the old town before heading to Sanssouci and the Dutch Quarter for stops. I really wanted to stop and explore some of the fascinating things we saw during the bus tour, but time prevented it. Once in the grounds of Sanssouci, our guide was again excellent! Our tour of the palace was incredible, and she led us through a lot of the grounds before a short trip over to the Dutch Quarter for another brief time wandering through the city. All in all, a great trip if you only have a few hours to try to see Potsdam!

Beautiful Place but a Bad Tour
Susan_H
, May 2019
Potsdam is beautiful and worth the time, but not at the expense of thoroughly seeing Belin. The tour was a big disappointment because it was advertised as being in English but it actually was in both English and German. The guide spent about 70% of the time speaking in German. By the time she got around to describing something we were looking at in English, the bus had zoomed by and it was out of view. When we arrived at the Palace for the tour, all of the English speakers were so frustrated, we got English audio guides and let the tour guide talk exclusively in German to those few on the tour that spoke German. We always take tours when we travel, and this was by far the worst one we have ever taken.

Our guide has joined us at the "spy bridge"(Glienicke Bridge) which was used to exchange spy's during the cold war (also featured in the Steven Spielberg's movie Bridges of spies). She had an outstanding commentary both in English and German, We visited Sanssouci palace, dutch quarters and drove close to Cecilenhof . We enjoyed this tour.

The guide did not seem too keen to please or answer questions - just wants to get on with her job. She catered mainly to the German-speaking tourists even though 90 of the travellers were English speaking. Taking a train to Potsdam ourselves, in our own time, would have been much better value.

Nice Short Trip
GloriaMingWei_L
, Jul 2018
Join this half day trip last week and it was nice short trip from Berlin to Sanssouci Palace. The palace itself is not as big as expected and only a few staterooms are open for guided tour. Not too much free time browsing around Palace though especially one wants to wander in the fountain back garden to appreciate its architecture. We had 1hr free time at Dutch Quarter for food which was ok. If this trip can be 1hr longer (for free time), it will be perfect.

Beautiful but overcrowded
Grace_E
, Jul 2018
Potsdam was beautiful and so was Sanssouci Palace. However, the tour was very overcrowded. It was difficult to hear the tour guide who was doing a good job, but there was a lot of us. Also, the Palace made an exception to let the whole group in at once and it was incredibly crowded. They allowed pictures, so everyone was distracted and trying to maneuver around the whole time.

Barbara G
, Jun 2018
This was a complete waste of time and money. of the 4.5 hours of the tour, we spent 2.5 hours on the bus--getting in and out of Potsdam. Tour guides did not seem to know there was a marathon in Potsdam which caused delays and a bike race in Berlin which lengthened our return trip. Additionally, the tour guide announced that the tour was bi-lingual--in German and English. This was NOT advertised, and only two of the 26 people on our tour spoke German. The tour guide was knowledgeable, but too much time was wasted giving information in both languages. As a result, we got to spend very little time at the Palace or on the grounds. We would tell friends to just take the S baum from Berlin to Potsdam for under 5. No need for this very disappointing tour.

Pretty place. The guide spoke low, so you had to be net to her to hear anything, really lackluster. I would definitely recommend going to the palace, but not with that tour group.

Thought I did review this one: arrived at allotted time, 10am only to be told tour wasn't going Not happy, not impressed. They didn't bother to inform me so I could make other arrangements. By 10am too late to book anything else. Bex Sightseeing was the name of the company, avoid them!! Don't think I should be giving them a one star but the system doesn't allow for no stars.

I would rate this tour as a 4. It is more of a driving around tour except for the Palace. It would have been nice if we were given a few minutes to take photos outside of the bus. The Palace tour was great! Not rushed since it was not high season. The website for the Christmas Market had the opening hour to be noonish but they did not open until 14:00 that was disappointing too. Overall, good tour with an excellent local guide.

This tour provided a wonderful introduction to Postdam, even though we saw all the sights on the bus. Sanssoucci palace is very beautiful but smaller than I'd imagined. Walking through the palace we gained an intimate feel for the palace because it was only our tour that was in the room. I like how the separate the flow of people visiting each room. Our guide had to open and lock the doors as we entered another room. If you have time, I think Potsdam is very worthwhile to visit for an entire day.

I felt rushed. It should really be a full day trip. There is lot to take in and more time is necessary to really appreciate it. Guide spoke much more in German than in English
