This tour was a great history lesson, and was full of interesting sights. People should be advised that it is a lot of walking, but well worth thte trouble. The guide was excellent.
My wife, Robin, and I very much enjoyed the walking tour. We felt that Carlos, our guide, was excellent.
The tour was very interesting, and our tour guide was extremely knowledgable. Well worth the time. A caution, however. This tour covers about 5 miles of walking; so it is not for the feint of heart.
Really enjoyed our guide who was most knowledgeable. The tour gave a great insight in the lifestyle and history of Potsdam and well worth it. We did see some great venues and 'homes'. It would be a great option to offer a guided tour of Sanssoucci at the end of the tour as we tried to do this but would have had to wait over 2 hours to this. Would recommend this tour. There is a lot walking but it is quite easy.
Wow, The presenter was very knowledgeable, and a lot of information to cover. The walking pace was a little faster than expected, but overall, a good tour.

The tours was well worth it. It should be stressed that this was a walking tour and we did cover a lot of ground and kilometres on a very warm day, but all very interesting. As a suggestion maybe a few more scheduled rest stops would help those in groups that may not best use to walking the longer distances.
The tour guide David was excellent, and very knowledgeable, well credentialed. Also he took us back to where the tour started, and helped us navigate home, which is an added bonus - not many of the guides are so courteous!
However, there is an awful lot of walking as so much ground to cover. People should be prepared to walk quite quickly for several hours.
We spent too much time on public transportation and listening to more detailed history than we could ever possibly remember.
Too rushed..I took in little of the sites, saw nothing of Potsdam...we had no time to relax and take fotos..it was like a boot camp..David, the guide was ok, but not customer focused..he was on a tight time frame. I hated it!! It spoilt my experience. too much info given..and we spent too much time at the spy swap bridge.
This tour was okay. The tour guide wasn’t too personal which made it a little boring. We got left behind after being giving missed information. Which ended up costing us an extra 18.00 euro’s to catch a taxi to meet up with the tour guide. Also on the Viator website they charge for kids but, paying directly at the location kids under 12 are free! It is a great way to exercise.

The guide was excellent. Too much walking for just passing by and not going in.
This should have been a much more enjoyable tour than it turned out to be. I was pleased that I got to see the three palaces and the grounds, but there was no indication in the ads for the tour that so much walking would be involved (perhaps four miles). Had I known that, I would have scheduled another company's tour. By the time we reached Sanssouci, the highlight of the tour, I was too tired to care. I am 70 but fit, and the lengthy walking could have been avoided had the route been shortened. The tour guide, Jim, was very knowledgeable, but he of necessity hurried us through each stop so that taking pictures was rushed. We were also given only 30 minutes for lunch and no time for stops in Potsdam itself. This tour needs to be re-thought.
