The date we booked was not correct but when we arrived at the meeting point they changed us the next day without a problem. The great tour, super complete and without running, something that sometimes scares us tourists. A beautiful city with a lot of history. The guide (Victor) very friendly.

The drive in only one direction is very good. You can get off anywhere, stroll in the park or in the city and then get back on at one of the stations.

It was very nice that we were a small group. This gave the guide more time to show us around outside of the plan! Advantage if you book in winter!

Class act all the way Our guide took great care of all of us through the the day

Was a great expiriecne, Postdam is a very nice city.
