We had problems in finding the departing place. It was not in the address written in the voucher. Another tour guide helped me finding the right place which was about a mile ahead. We became afraid of missing it. It has to be fixed in the future. In my oppinion this tour deserves more time to visit the garden and the town with its Palaces. We had little time to walk around the garden and visit the many intersting places that are there. And there is lot of intersting places to be visited in town.
Interesting tour and good guide.Only hiccup we had was our Viator papers stated the wrong pick up point and only by luck did we catch the coach.
The meeting point and the pick-up point were different and not clearly defined by the person present at the meeting point. The tour though the village was informative but would have been much better if there were some stops to at least take some photos. Only one guide was available. The palace and the garden are worth a visit and so is the village. If the trip could be made about 60 minutes longer it could be much improved to be a 'Highly Recommended' trip
The history of the place is interesting but the palace itself is only average.
A good day out which worked well even though we were delayed on the outward journey because of May Day demonstations in Berlin. It was interesting to hear about Potsdam and its role in the history of the second world war and its forbidden city and Sanssucci Palace and grounds were beautiful. Our guide gave us a good history of the town and palace, as well as some up-to-date information and managed to keep us on schedule despite the delay - Kevin Kennedy. Overall a very enjoyable day out to this pretty area.
One cant believe how much of Berlin and Potsdam is being rebuilt and regenerated. In years to come Potsdam will be an entirely different tour with and entirely different scene. Once again the guide was very informative and had pictures and props to better explain certain areas of the tour. The only down side was that she was quietly spoken and her accent was very heavy, more easily understood when face to face but not so over a PA in the bus. The Sanssouci palace is much more beautiful in the spring and summer, but knew that and it is still lovely and peaceful at this time of year. An interesting place and well worth seeing. An easy day out, use it as a relax day.
It 's gorgeous and it 's probably very nice to walk around in the summer months.
Had a wonderful guide in Postdam! Took forever to pick up all the bus passengers though. Should have only 1 central meeting point, so you don't waste an hour of the tour driving around Berlin.
The guide's English could have been better.
There was not enough time to enjoy the place. It ought to be a one day tour not just four hours.
Good trip; however, it would have been better if we had spent more time at Sanssouci and less time on the bus. To explore the gardens at Sanssouci would have been nice. Our guide spoke in German first and then repeated in English, which meant half of our time was spent listening to a language which we didn't understand, and it was time consuming.
I found the tour rushed. Not enough time to stop and admire the sights. Also no time to get out of the coach to take photos.
Would have been better if the guide & bus driver hadn't rushed us through so quickly. We had no time to explore the grounds ourselves. Got off the bus, went directly to palace & then directly back to the bus. Didn't even have time for souvenir shopping.
