Excellent tour if you want to see main sites of Potsdam in one session

We took this tour on a cold winter's day. It took in all the key places from Glienicker to Sans Souci and the commentary, although a bit flakey, was really interesting. Pretty... read more

We were swayed by the hop on hop off bus tour as we really wanted to see Sansoucci. We enjoyed the audio tour and hopped off at the end to spend some time at Sansoucci. We spent an hour in total there, which was mostly stopping off at the cafe. The castle seems in urgent need of restoration. The grounds... More

We wanted to do something different for a change - we took the U Bahn to Potsdamer Platz, where we decided to go on the Potsdam City Tour = for some sightseeing and where the Potsdam Agreement was signed. There were headphones on the bus for the various different languages - the tour was very interesting and at the halfway... More

We got lucky getting on this tour, we arrived by train - just before the tour left otherwise we would probably only have seen central Potsdam. It's a massive area and whilst it could be done by public transport, the get on / off convenience of the bus is good. Whilst our trip was to Berlin, I preferred Potsdam -... More

Potsdam, once the residence of Prussian kings is a 35 minute train ride from Berlin. We walk through the Bridge of Spies where in 1962 an American pilot was exchange for a Soviet spy. Alex did a great job in taking us through the history of this city and sights of the quaint city proper. We ended the tour at... More

This 20km bike tour is great way of seeing the tourist spots in Potsdam. We rented our bikes at "Paddle Tours" just outside the train station. Great bikes with beautiful scenery, as well as great workout.

Didn't realise how big the area was until we happily came across the tour, it covered all of the main areas and the guide was most knowledgeable. So glad we spent the money.

This was a walking tour which started as a train journey from Berlin to Potsdam with Jess our guide from Original Berlin Walks. Jess was very knowledgeable and full of energy and humour. He was from LA but studying in Germany so his English was perfect. This was a fascinating all day tour with beautiful landscapes, history and palaces. We... More

We took this tour because it promoted a live English commentary. Unfortunately what we got was a recorded one, very poorly edited, out of synch with what we were seeing and in appalling English (complete with terrible 'jokes'). This spoils what would otherwise have been a great way to see this beautiful city.
