Unfortunately, the journey to Potsdam took 2.75 hrs which gave no time to see inside the Palace of Sans Souci. We travelled in a double-decker bus, not a coach! There was no courier only an audio commentary which was very poor. Everyone was very disappointed with the experience.
The Escorial was well worth a visit and our guide was very friendly and helpful. We would have preferred to have spent more time there, looking at the other apartments but time was limited, as we also had to see the Basilica of the Valley of the Fallen. The woodland valley views there were dramatic.
We went on a full-day trip to Toledo which made it a more leisurely affair and gave us time to see the city in detail. Our guide, Anna, was both friendly and informative, and made the experience very enjoyable. The lunch and the restaurant's location were excellent, as was the "retail therapy" in the afternoon to give the opportunity to see Damascene ware being produced and to purchase a memento.
We thoroughly recommend the trip.
