This 20km bike tour is great way of seeing the tourist spots in Potsdam. We rented our bikes at "Paddle Tours" just outside the train station. Great bikes with beautiful scenery, as well as great workout.

Didn't realise how big the area was until we happily came across the tour, it covered all of the main areas and the guide was most knowledgeable. So glad we spent the money.

This was a walking tour which started as a train journey from Berlin to Potsdam with Jess our guide from Original Berlin Walks. Jess was very knowledgeable and full of energy and humour. He was from LA but studying in Germany so his English was perfect. This was a fascinating all day tour with beautiful landscapes, history and palaces. We... More

We took this tour because it promoted a live English commentary. Unfortunately what we got was a recorded one, very poorly edited, out of synch with what we were seeing and in appalling English (complete with terrible 'jokes'). This spoils what would otherwise have been a great way to see this beautiful city.

A very good insight into Potsdam the SanssouciPark and palaces. Even a trip to the famous Glienicke Bridge included. The guide switched excellent English to German and back again whilst walking the tour round the palaces and park.this was a tour like no other city bus tour, not just a drive but in depth walks as well. Unfortunately we did... More

we caught the S-Bahn from Frierichstrasse (in Berlin) to Potsdam (40 minutes), then purchased tickets on the Potsdam City Tour Bus, which was right outside the railway station. excellent route around Potsdam and surrounding castles, including the the old headquarters of the KGB during the cold-war, and the location of the WW2 Potsdam conference where the allies decided to deal...

Another interesting tour through Insider Tours. Our guide, Jamie, did an excellent job of showing the sights and giving us the history of Potsdam. This was one of the longest tours I have taken, running around 6 hours time. The pace was very good although we were on our feet most of the time and there is a lot of... More

We took this hop on hop off bus to avoid swapping and changes buses to see the city and its surrounds. It cost 12.5 euros with discount- the full price is 17 euros, which I think is too much. We had an open topped bus with a closed roof - it poured down - I was pleased we did not... More
