We really enjoyed the tour, the audio guide was very detailed about history and curious facts. We had little time to be in Postdam but where able to see most of its highlight spots.

Potsdam is very spread out and one needs carefully to select what one will concentrate on and cover the rest by sitting on the bus which has a very adequate audio guide and enables one to cover ground that would otherwise take days.
