It was very easy to find the meet up spot since the guides were wearing lanyards and there was a tour sign. Johnny was an attentive and knowledgeable guide for our trip to Potsdam. He made sure everyone had the right train ticket, knew where to go, and was available for any questions. He had many photos printed to help support his stories. Definitely recommend! My tour was about 4 hours round trip from Berlin (10am to around 2pm).

I took the castle tour through Potsdam with my 6-year-old son on the steamer. We sat outside and were even able to feed ducks along the way. The tour was very informative for me and very relaxing for both of us. On your next visit, we'd love to do it again.

Jim was our guide and was very proffessional. His explainations were profond and full, his knowledge is very large and the items were very interesting. We enjoy the tour very much !! Thank you and please thank Jim for this lovely day.

Our guide Maria filled the tour with many fun facts on top of the detailed historical description of events and made it a pleasant day.

Was a very interesting experience, especially recommended for families.
