This is a great tour of the best sites in Potsdam! Most of the time is spent on the bus which is great for winter/bad weather, with the chance to walk around the main sites with a tour or on your own. If you book the tour for a language other than German, you can listen to the foreign language audio guide in the bus.

This was a good tour, but could have been better. Despite our best efforts to determine if this was true beforehand, it did not include tours of the interiors of Sanssouci and the Neue Palaces. We really wanted those, and by the time we figured this out, the only tour of Sanssouci available was three hours later - a lot of time to kill in November in Potsdam. Also, the tour was in German, with English available only through headphones triggered (sometimes incorrectly) by location. That said, the English commentary was witty and informative. At the palaces, the tour guide would give a long talk in German, and then a condensed version in English. He was a fine tour guide, but he did not know much English. So, on the whole, it was good, but could have been better.

Βλέπεις όλη την πόλη εν συντομια. Το μόνο μείον είναι ότι αφενός δεν μας έδειξε το ξυλινο σπιτι alexandrowka ως αξιοθέατο και αφετέρου στο νεο παλάτι neues palais δεν το είδαμε καν από την πλευρά του κήπου λόγω έλλειψης χρόνου. Καλο θα ηταν να υπήρχαν περισσότερες στάσεις για φωτογραφίες ( έκανε μόνο 3 στα παλατια) και στα υπόλοιπα αξιοθέατα.
