Tobi was awesome. He was so funny and knowledgeable that made the experience even better. We would prefer tho to have a bus to transport us back and forth to the city due to the fact that was one hour far with the public transportation. It’s a very good choice to see something more than the capital. Well recommended.

Everything was wonderful. The only thing to mention is that the busses do take some time arriving and the times are continually put back and back on the waiting clock when waiting at the stops.

Thank you for this informative and entertaining tour! I would recommend it to anyone, it was really well organized from start to finish.

Very good. Audio guide to Sans Souci was good. Other sites could have used more signage and more guidance on which were open or closed.

Very good tour and extensive knowledge. Highly recommended
