Great tour, even though my daughter became sick to her stomach midway through. My wife decided to bail with her and bring her back to Berlin midway through, and rather than take his break, our guide, Blakely, accompanied my daughter and wife all the way back to the Potsdam Bahnhoff so they didn't get lost. Then he joined us as we finished touring the spot where England, Russia and the US divided the spoils of war. Our guide went well and above what was expected, and made the trip very special for us. What a great guy. Rob, I hope you're reading this!
We took the Potsdam bike tour the day before we left Berlin ...our only regret was that we didn't take some of the other Fat Tire bike tours earlier in our week-long visit. Derek, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and informative. He had a great sense of humor, was charismatic and took the time to ask the members of the group their names (and not as a "sign-in" activity). Given the number of tours my husband and I have taken over the year, we noted that this was the first time any of the tour guides bothered to ask names during lengthy conversations - a small gesture which impressed us greatly. As Dale Carnegie's Principle #6 pointed out: "Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language". Potsdam was very lovely and the overall trip was loads of fun. Please note, however, that you will need cash for the beer garten lunch as they do not take credit cards. Also, they did not have any vegetarian options for those of you who don't eat meat. The garden in on the water and offers a beautiful view.
Craig was wicked, he was super informative and very knowledgeable about Potsdam. He brought his own personality and style into the tour and made everyone feel welcome and open to sharing questions and opinions. It was a beautiful little city, and the bike tour was a great way to see the main sites. Really nice to see if your into architecture because of all the different styles of buildings and the changes throughout the history.
This trip was one of my favorite days in Europe! It was a full day of activity seeing gardens and palaces in Potsdam. We covered so much more by bike than what one could do by foot. The stop for lunch was at a beautiful brewery right on the water. The guide was knowledgeable and funny. Awesome tour!
Excellent day out! We thoroughly enjoyed our fat tire tour to Potsdam. Our guide was interesting and knowledge and provide not an experience which appealed to all learning styles- visual, kinestic and auditory.
A long day but loved seeing the buildings and Craig's drawings of Prussian kings. Learnt loads. Great lunch stop and celienhof tour.
The tour guide - Tom ( Berliner), was absolutely great! and he did a wonderful job! The only thing was that I believe we were too big a group - 22 people ( 8th August) and so it took a while to get started, but a very enjoyable tour and will recommend it!
My wife and I went on a bike tour to Potsdam with Alex the guide from Fat Tire tours.
It was great, we got a very interesting tour of the sites with historical facts and anecdotes. And importantly Alex gave all the group a great feeling of togetherness, and cheerfullness.
We highly recomend the tour, and thank you again Alex!
A very fun way to visit Postdam. There’s quite a lot to see in this beautiful city so travelling by bike made it easier. The visit to the Cecilienhof palace where the Postdam Conference took place brings you back in time.
Our guide Craig was very good and provided great info on the history of the city and the many palaces we saw.
Sooo much fun. Great guide. Very informative and friendly. Highly recommended.
A really interesting tour and a great way to see Potsdam. Our guide was really good. We stopped at a lovely beer garden by the lake for lunch. Tam, our guide, helped everyone order their lunch. That was really appreciated since the menu was in German and I certainly needed help. The audio tour through the location for the Potsdam Conference was really interesting.
Fantastic day. Guide knew his history. I would recommend to everyone!
Good tour, however it would be good to have more stops included to take photos etc.
Although my bicycle was a bit too high and quite heavy, I felt unstable. However, because the paths of the palace estate were open, wide and long and Alex, the guide, was patient with my lagging behind, I able to complete this tour. Only by bicycling on open paths of the palace grounds, could one see this vast estate. The highlight of this tour for me was the Cecilienhof home where the fate of Germany was decided.
