The tour is really highly recommended. Thanks to our tour guide Winfried and the great bus driver. Very informative, history vividly presented with charm and humor. A great trip. Potsdam is beautiful. We will be back.

Beautiful day trip to Potsdam! Lots to see and experience in the city and castle! Visually stunning and close to Berlin if you’re looking for an excursion not too far from the city.

Very easy and organized. Able to see many of the main sights in Potsdam even on a tight schedule. The guide Ava (Eva) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

The itinerary was very good. We came late but they were flexible and put us on the next tour schedule

Great way to learn about the history of this area.
