Also, visit the Cecilenhof Palace, where Churchill, Truman and Stalin wrote world history when discussing how to partition Germany. Hop off between the former East and West Berlin, on the Glienicke Bridge connecting Potsdam to Berlin, where Cold War spy exchanges routinely took place.
Other top attractions include the jungle landscape of Biosphäre Potsdam, with over 20,000 beautiful plants, exotic animals and an hourly storm complete with thunder and lightning and Studio Babelsberg, the oldest large-scale film studio in the world.

Firstly, the content of the tour is great. The tour provides a great overview of the main highlights of Potsdam. Potsdam is a great pace to visit .
I am reviewing the three stop tour with commentary provided by a guide, firstly in German and then a precis of the information in English. I am giving the tour three stars for the following reasons
1. Confusion at the start as to which tour we should be on.
2. The group was mainly German so the guide spoke mainly in German which meant we were waiting around at each of the three stops to hear the very short English explanation.
3. The bus commentary for English speakers was the same as Hop On Hop Off tour while the German speakers had live commentary and the opportunity to interact with the guide. I felt the English speakers were disadvanataged. I would recommend sticking with the Hop On Hop Off tour

Potsdam was great but the tour on the bus was less than expected. The English audio tour did not match as we were driving past the sights. Would visit Potsdam again but on our own as we found the buses ended too early to see the Palaces properly.

It was a nice tour. The guide was very helpful and gave us lots of information about the city. Although it is the size of a town, there are quite many things to see and the bus tour is the best way to do it.

This is a good way to see Potsdam in a day but unfortunately you need more than a day here as we found out

Chicle of where the wwii Potsdam agreement was signed has been retained in its original form an amazing place to visit

Charlottenhoff palace is brilliant from end to end

We enjoyed a nice lunch at the restaurant

Our day ended at sanssouci. It is a short walk back to the start if you want to stay after the last bus

This was a good bus tour. Our only regret is that we didn't allow more time to get off and visit the many interesting sites.

Great way to see the sites and to get around Potsdam. Good English commentary. Be aware of the days the palaces are open.

Potsdam is a must visit if you are visiting Berlin and this is a very cheap, easy and convenient way to see Potsdam. Highly recommended

Potsdam is a must-see for any visitor to Berlin, and this is a very good way to get around to give you a sense of the stops you weant to make to spend more time at. This tour seems to stop at all the must-see palaces, and it's vert reasonably priced. The audio is very informative.
