Guide was exceptional! On time, knowledge was in-depth and the overall experience was one of the best we’ve ever had. Recommend the onsite restaurant after the walk before entering the palace. The palace was amazing as well - very personal experience


Guide’s ability to respond to our interests and frame his presentation accordingly. Good pace. Good historical perspective.


Stephen was knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. He was flexible with the itinerary and seemed to enjoy his job and sharing his knowledge with us.


Tour and guide were great!!! This was an excellent way to hit the highlights of Potsdam and Sanssouci, while it does not include the interior of Sanssouci, it did end there which enabled us to get tickets and go inside on our own.


Stefan was a delightful guide and helped us understand how the personalities of Potsdam's many rulers/occupiers influenced the architecture and devopment of the area. We walked at a reasonable speed and he patiently answered all our questions. Great experience for visitors!


What a great tour! We had a guide who was from Seattle and has lived in Germany for a long time. I can't remember her name but she was wonderful! Loved it!


I was thrilled with my guide, Zenaida. From the moment we met at the train station until we separated at the New Palace, she was engaging and informative. She asked many questions to help tailor my experience, and made many recommendations for further exploration later in the day (I highly recommend the Museum Barberini).


The Half Day Potsdam Walking Tour was excellent. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and was very informative. Unfortunately , we booked the tour from Berlin and did not clearly understand the train from Berlin to Potsdam. We were at the wrong station and had to uber to the correct station to meet our guide. We lost an hour of the tour here. Would have loved to see the San Soucci Palace inside but it was closed by the time we arrived.

Axel, our guide, was packed with information and a very pleasant personality. A tour not to be missed.

<p>Eleni was a great tour guide. Because of the trains not running from Berlin, she jumped a bus and joined us at lunch. She was a wealth of knowledge, but was fun and personable. She customized the tour so we could focus on areas of interest. Unfortunately, The entire grounds of Sanssouci were closed due to a storm the day before. Apparently that area of Germany doesn't know how to react to high winds and rain, I can say that coming from the Midwest of the United States where nothing ever closes.</p> <p>All in all it was a great tour and would have been a five star event if Sanssouci hadn't been closed.</p>
