Full description

Berlin without Potsdam is like Paris without Versailles - leave Berlin without a trip to its royal residence, and you can't say that you've seen it all. Potsdam's fairy-tale landscapes are inviting and playful, and make any walk a delightful experience. Arrive from Berlin at the “Kaiser Bahnhof”, the final Emperor’s personal train station, and set off through the sprawling Sanssouci gardens. Accompanied by an expert guide, you will learn all about the Prussian Kings.

From the ridiculous to the impressive, from the ineffective to the mighty, you’ll learn how Prussia rose from a minor European power to the foundation of the German Empire! Discover where Wilhelm II fled Germany at the end of World War I, see the impressive Venetian mosaic in the solemn Church of Peace, and find out just why Germans leave potatoes on Frederick the Great’s grave! Enjoy a relaxed trip from Berlin and back again on a 4-hour trip to Potsdam’s most famous and beloved park.

The guide was Georgia, who was informative and entertaining. Despite a very hot day, and having waited for a while since Get my Guide told me the tour started half an hour earlier than it actually did, it was a very enjoyable experience. Georgia was also tremendously helpful, handing out useful information to everyone, and to me personally her help in getting where I needed to go on the return journey was invaluable.

Tobi, the guide, was super nice! He explained us a lot of things and interesting facts, giving lots of advice. There were people arriving late to the group and he accommodated without issues. He also extended the duration of the tour (consulting to all the group before doing it so), to ensure we got to see all the interesting spots. Totally recommend!

What a day we had in Potsdam with Xavier. He was so enthusiastic and welcoming and knowledgeable about his history. We learned some very important historical events that spanned many eras. It was amazing that our guide could teach us so much history in one day and make it interesting. We could never have covered so much on our own. High marks for Xavier. One of the most welcoming guides we have ever had on a walking trip. Super job! We had an issue when asked to leave the train due to an accident on the tracks. Xavier asked us if we were comfortable walking over 30 minutes to the Bridge of Spies. It all worked out well even though it put quite a delay in our schedule. Xavier alleviated a rather complicated problem very smoothly. He didn’t get flustered which put everyone at ease We were impressed with how much was covered on the day out. Totally worth our time and energy. Our group of ten people was very flexible. which helped to make the day pleasant.
