    We take many tours and this was such a great one! Guide was with us from 9:30-3:30pm and since we chose to stay behind he even told us how to get back. I forget his name but he was born in Germany but raised in Long Island. He entertained both my teen and my 70 yr old mom with all of his knowledge. Totally recommend!!!

    I took this tour without really knowing what to expect as it was my first day in Berlin, travelling on my own. Our guide for the day, Gregor, met us in Berlin and explained that we would be travelling to another town, and so the journey started! We went back in time to relive the life of Frederick the Great, we visited marvellous sights such as the Cecilienhof Palace, where the Potsdam conference was held deciding the future of Germany after World War Ist, and the magnificent Sanssoucis palace, which translated from French means the "No-worries Palace".

    We were even given the chance to listen to a Ramstein song to get the full experience of German Romanticism. It was a truly memorable experience with a really knowledgeable and engaging guide. Would 100 % recommend.

    Awesome tour. Loved all of it. Jared was our guide and he was so full of knowledge. He was amazing. Would definitely recommend to others...Took my daughter and sister but hit friends as the others did not fit.

    This was a good tour. Our guide Tobi kept the group's attention with a great knowledge of the history of the area and bits of humor to keep us entertained. The area was beautiful..a nice change from graffiti-filled Berlin.

    Fascinating to see Potsdam and learn more about the history of the Prussian royalty and the Nazi/Cold War era. Wouter made the tour very interesting and we were able to see many different parts of Potsdam that you’d never stumble across on your own. Really entertaining stories. A great day-trip from Berlin if you have the time (you meet in Berlin and Wouter guides you to Potsdam and back via the train – very easy). Make sure to ask for Wouter.

    The tour guide was magnificent and the tour was beautiful. It was condensed so you will walk alot but Potsdam is wonderful so you will enjoy this trip!
