Know More about this tour

Meet your private guide at your central Berlin hotel and travel in a Mercedes Vito taxi to Schloss Charlottenburg. During the 45-minute trip to Potsdam, drive through Wannsee on your way to Schloss Glienicke and the Glienicke Bridge, where spy swaps took place during the Cold War.
Continue on to Potsdam where your guide will explain how this scenic town served as the residence of Prussian kings and German emperors of the House of Hohenzollern for three centuries. Marvel at the majestic castle of Babelsberg. Visit the New Garden, a large park where the Marble Palace and Schloss Cecilienhof are located. Admire the lakeside Marble Palace and learn how Schloss Cecilienhof was the site of the Potsdam Conference where the leaders of America, Britain and the Soviet Union decided the future of Germany after WWII.
Afterward, head to the Russian colony of Alexandrowka and see 13 wooden houses built in the 1800s for the Russian singers of the First Prussian Regiment of the Guards. Then it's off to downtown Potsdam for a lunch break at a local restaurant (own expense). While downtown, see St Nicholas Church and the town hall, as well as the city palace that's home to the Brandenburg Parliament.
Finally, head to the Sanssouci Palace and marvel at its stunning Rococo architecture. Palaces are open on varying days of the week so your choice of palace will depend on which day you take your tour. You may, for instance, visit Neue Kammern or Neues Palais at Sanssouci Park instead of Sanssouci Palace (own expense). Being on a private tour means you can work with your guide to choose the attractions that most interest you and ask as many questions as you like about the sights you see. Keep in mind that since so much of this tour takes place in castles and parks, there's a fair amount of walking involved.
At the conclusion of your 7-hour scenic and educational tour of Potsdam, you'll be driven back in your taxi to your Berlin hotel.

  • our guide has been really great, very professional and friendly, the city is a real gem !

  • Great tour. Our guide Finn was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot from him.

  • Dennis was a wonderful guide, we enjoyed our tour very much! We learned so much history and he was very accommodating in starting the tour early so we could visit SansSouci which was great as well!. We would highly recommend this tour!

  • This tour was the best way to see Potsdam. We could make some choices about how much time to spend in certain places, and we could easily get our questions answered. One participant had trouble getting to the starting place because traffic had been cut off due to a bicycle tour in the area. Her taxi driver let her out to walk, but she went the wrong direction. The guide went out on foot and found her, going way beyond the call of duty to be sure everyone could participate. The guide was a new master's degree recipient and knew his history very well.

  • Jess did a good job showing us the sights and giving the history. Be sure to tour Sans Souci. I recommend this trip.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • We enjoyed out private tour with Matti very much. He did a great presentation and did a great time answering so many questions about Berlin.

  • Guide Caroline turned up punctually for the start of this tour. She was knowledgeable and humorous. The tour was informative and entertaining. The day was planned well and was as full as possible Caroline coordinated with the driver efficiently and effectively.

  • Our guide Ryan and driver Fred were a fantastic team. This tour was extremely time effecient and we could not have seen so much in one day any other way. I highly recommend using this tour company and taking advantage of the private tour option.

  • The tour was very interesting and the guide was very nice. Highly recommended.
