We took the trip today having in mind the program as described in the details of your site. However it didn't turn out to be exactly the same! We even expected to see the Get Your Guide there, but when we reached the meeting point we found out that another tour company was in charge of the tour. That of course explains why the tour wasn't exactly the same as the one described on the site! Luckily we had an excellent guide, Jared who had an in depth knowledge of the history of the area and saved the day! I must admit though that I really looked forward to going to a beer garden (and we really passed quite a few of them during our walking tour) but that unfortunately didn't happen! The 4 stars was only for the tour guide, otherwise I would have rated it with 3.
Overall a good tour. The palace, the old city and the walk from the Brandenburg gate were very nice. Charming shops and restaurants. For us , a senior citizen couple it too long and tiring, we left the tour an hour before the end as we were too tired. It could be reengineered To a 4 hour tour for senior citizens
The tour was interesting and Julian was a wonderful tour guide. He took us to pertinent places, was knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we had as well. He ensured that we were comfortable and safe over different modes of transport, yet he was relaxed throughout. Well done!
We had a great and informative trip. Our guide, Nikolai, was very good and took his time explaining the history of Potsdam and answering our questions. It's pretty much a full day tour and worth the time, just be careful there won't be much left to enter Sanssouci at the end.
Bastian knows his stuff and shares his passion for history in an easy and engaging jaunt through Potsdam. wear comfortable shoes and buy your ABC transit ticket before you go to save time. Better yet, a Berlin ABC Welcome Card will do the trick.
