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.

Good oversight but a bit more English would be better

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.

Great Overview of Potsdam!

The bus was comfortable and afforded good views. The narration was informative. Our live guide added greatly, particularly at the 3 castle stops. We were very pleased with our tour. Our one suggestion would be to offer a more detailed description of the meeting point. Rather than "at the Potsdam central station", perhaps ypu could add "in front of the Potsdam central station". For a small town, foreign couple we were a little worried when we first saw the size of the station.
