We take many tours and this was such a great one! Guide was with us from 9:30-3:30pm and since we chose to stay behind he even told us how to get back. I forget his name but he was born in Germany but raised in Long Island. He entertained both my teen and my 70 yr old mom with all of his knowledge. Totally recommend!!!

Gregor was an amazing tour guide and Potsdam, beautiful!

I took this tour without really knowing what to expect as it was my first day in Berlin, travelling on my own. Our guide for the day, Gregor, met us in Berlin and explained that we would be travelling to another town, and so the journey started! We went back in time to relive the life of Frederick the Great, we visited marvellous sights such as the Cecilienhof Palace, where the Potsdam conference was held deciding the future of Germany after World War Ist, and the magnificent Sanssoucis palace, which translated from French means the "No-worries Palace". We were even given the chance to listen to a Ramstein song to get the full experience of German Romanticism. It was a truly memorable experience with a really knowledgeable and engaging guide. Would 100 % recommend.

Lovely day in Potsdam

The trip required you to buy your own train ticket, but the guide helped you. The guide was very knowledgeable and took us to very interesting sites. It involved a considerable amount of walking. There was a break for lunch, but we barely had time to get our food and eat. Perhaps we could have used an additional half hour?

I would have preferred a less rushed visit with more free time to explore the city of Potsdam. Everything felt very rushed.

Fascinating to see Potsdam and learn more about the history of the Prussian royalty and the Nazi/Cold War era. Wouter made the tour very interesting and we were able to see many different parts of Potsdam that you’d never stumble across on your own. Really entertaining stories. A great day-trip from Berlin if you have the time (you meet in Berlin and Wouter guides you to Potsdam and back via the train – very easy). Make sure to ask for Wouter.
