It was a small group with only myself and one other traveller in attendance. Susan was an excellent tour guide. She guided us with a wealth of knowledge and insights. Her personality made the history feel close and accessible. By the end of the tour it felt like I'd spent the day with good friends. Everything I learned about Potsdam and the Prussians felt exciting and intriguing. This was everything I wanted in a walking tour.

Very informative tour with some fantastic aspects. Shame the statues are covered over in San Soucci in the winter but a great day nonetheless. Alice was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to ensure everyone was well looked after.

This tour is supposed to be a small group walking tour but we had 26 people in the group. It was hard to keep up and listened to the tour guide. Also this tour described going into the Potsdam Palace and tour guide would help us get tickets. It turned out the tour ended outside there. Disappointing!

We saw all the palaces of the Prussian emperors, the Bridge of Spies and where the Potsdam conference was held at the end of WW2 with a great tour guide.
