We really enjoyed our tour. We were the only non German speaking in the group, and felt we missed a lot of information due to that, but the tour was great. We appreciated the printed booklet that was provided for the chateau and feel that it would be beneficial to add mor of the stops to. The audio guide was helpful but sparsely informative. Very happy we took this tour!!! Thank you!

This tour was a great introduction to historical sites of Potsdam. You can explore them on your own later as it includes a hop on hop off option after the tour. Victoria was a great guide and had a lot of information to help us understand the history. Unfortunately the weather didn't help much on my tour, so dress accordingly so you have no problems with that. I definitely recommend this tour.

Victoria is an excellent guide and the tour is well worth it. I wish I'd had more time to go back and spend time in the museums as the settings were amazing. The bus departed and returned right on schedule and Victoria advised and facilitated all passengers with their onward journeys.
