It’s really a delight to get a lot of introduction of sites alongside our drive to Potsdam - never could thought that some buildings are spy offices or checkpoints without our guide. She’s insightful and helpful (with a nice humor!), offering us additional insights after the audio guided tour in Sanssouci as we stroll in the gardens. Really recommend this!

Jasmin loves her job, you can tell that with her as a tour guide the trip was very entertaining and interesting. It was a lot of fun and can only be recommended! The tour group from the Black Forest really enjoyed their trip to Sanssouci Palace. Thank you very much.
