On July 25th, 2022 we had the city tour in Potsdam. Our tour guide Eva and the driver Thomas were great. Eva explained everything in an interesting way, was very competent and friendly. The driver did a great job too. We can recommend this city tour to everyone, the 3 castle tours were also very interesting. Thank you for the wonderful hours

Victoria is an excellent guide and the tour is well worth it. I wish I'd had more time to go back and spend time in the museums as the settings were amazing. The bus departed and returned right on schedule and Victoria advised and facilitated all passengers with their onward journeys.

A very interesting and entertaining tour of discovery! We were on the tour on April 1st, 2022 at 11:15 a.m. and had a really great tour guide who gave us a lot of interesting and funny anecdotes about Potsdam! We liked it so much that we decided to visit this really beautiful city again soon!
