This was a good tour. Our guide Tobi kept the group's attention with a great knowledge of the history of the area and bits of humor to keep us entertained. The area was beautiful..a nice change from graffiti-filled Berlin.

Fascinating to see Potsdam and learn more about the history of the Prussian royalty and the Nazi/Cold War era. Wouter made the tour very interesting and we were able to see many different parts of Potsdam that you’d never stumble across on your own. Really entertaining stories. A great day-trip from Berlin if you have the time (you meet in Berlin and Wouter guides you to Potsdam and back via the train – very easy). Make sure to ask for Wouter.
