What people are saying about Potsdam

This tour was great but very rushed. The Sachenhausen Concentration Camp was an incredible experience and is one you should definitely put on your list whilst in Berlin. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and great at explaining things, especially in ways I had thought of (being a history nerd). However, to fit the beautiful places in Potsdam in on the same tour, we were very rushed for time. Most places was a quick stop, and you were rushing to get back to the bus. There was also little communication about how long we would be there, timing to places and what time we would need to be back at the bus. In summary, definitely put both Sachsenhausen and Potsdam on your list of places to see, but splitting them up is probably the better option to appreciate the full experience of both.

Chisca was wonderful. My son and I were the only english speaking in the group but Chisca made every effort to pull aside and explain details to us is english. The concentration camp was sad but important to see. Potsdam was beautiful. We actually decided to stay there for dinner and skip the bus ride back!
