Beautiful town with loads of beautiful buildings and palaces. Interesting history. Our tour guide was German and we had to put headphones on the bus to listen to the history as he mainly spoke in German so I feel that we would have learned a lot more if we spoke fluent German ! He gave a little bit of information in English at each stop but a lot more in German. It was still interesting and ticket includes free admission for the hop on hop off tour also if you want to spend more time there yourself.
The tour was a good insight into the main bits of Potsdam. We booked for an English speaking guide. It was on a double decker bus stopping at various points. The group was mostly German. On the bus we were given headphones which described all the sights which was fine. It was when we stopped at various sites the guide spent most of the time describing the sites in German and ran out of time for the English translation but when he got to it he was great
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.
The meeting point is outside of the Hauptbahnhof, took me a minute to find. The tour guide spoke both Getman and English when we got off the bus and on the bus there were headphones to listen to an audio guide. It's a great overview of the city and worth spending the money on!
great tour but probably most enjoyable when you speak german, the live tour guide made it hard to listen to the english recorded information, we did get information in english at the stops but this was less detailed than the german story
