Fantastic way to see the gorgeous town of Potsdam. Definitely a highlight of our trip.
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

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
very convenient way to see the sights at you own pace. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommended for anyway wanting to see the city but not tied down to a structured tour
Loved it! I recommend getting there early and take the bus tour all the way through, then start over and get off where you'd like to spend more time. The tour ends fairly early in the day (5pm) so we used the very convenient local transit to visit the sites we wanted but most of those close fairly early as well. Good value and a good price.
We were not sure how this would go because we don't normally like the hop-on-hop-off format. Never fear, this is the best hop-on-hop-off we've ever done. Potsdam is a magnificent city. You can't afford not to see this place if you come to Berlin.
...and a tip for all of you who might be reading that it is a bit of an effort to get to Potsdam in order to start the tour. Absolutely not so!. It is a piece of cake. Roughly 30 mins from Alexanderplatz on a regional train. Fast, comfortable and great value public transport. Do it!
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 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.
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.
The city of Potsdam was beautiful! As for this tour, the spot for pick-up is not well marked, so that started the tour off pretty tough. I am English speaking and the audio on this tour was not that great. It was a male and female having a dialogue during part of the tour. When we reached a point of interest there would be facts given, but that was about it. Music played or the two would dialogue some. If you are German speaking, there is a live guide that gives a detailed explanation of every sight. I know it would be better. If I had it to do over again, I would take an all English tour with a live guide, not an audio tour. For the money, just riding and seeing the sights was pretty. I did get off the bus some, but then knowing where to get back on the tour was tough and it only came every 30 minutes. The driver was rude and did not speak English. He told me to speak to the guide who was upstairs. I didn't even realize there was one on the bus. There is no physical location to ask questions before you board. You just have to be ready and watch for the bus. People were all over looking for the correct bus. It was pretty chaotic. I gave it 3 stars because it did take a pretty tour for a decent price.
Live tour is NOT in English as advertised. Recorded audio tour is old, sparse on information and commentary. The live German tour appeared good by its amount and reaction of German speakers aboard. I suspect all the tour operators in town are run by same company. Last stop of the day our operator failed to show up. A competitor offered to take us back without our prompting seemingly business as usual. Aboard they had the same audio tour. If I had planned better and were to do it again, I would save money and use an phone app audio tour and local public bus service.
