We had a great tour in super sunny autumn weather. Get in line in good time, otherwise the sun deck spaces will be gone. Unfortunately you had to serve yourself and wait a long time, meaning you missed part of the tour. But we found it very nice and can absolutely recommend the trip.

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.

Very nice tour. Entertaining and interesting. Great weather was another plus :) However, I noticed that the English notes sometimes said something different than the German ones. I would improve that.

We really enjoyed the castle tour, everything was well organized, friendly staff and an informative announcement made for a nice 90 minutes in perfect weather. We can recommend the tour :)

Calm beautiful ride with many sites and great Apple strudel!
