We had a wonderful time in Potsdam with Betty. She spoke marvelous English and had all kinds of interesting stories explaining the Prussian history and the what's and why's of the area palaces and gardens. Be ready to walk on this tour and to have fun listening to the comments!

It was okay. I was expecting a guide who had historical knowledge to impart about the sights and suggestions about what to see. What we for was a very nice person who accompanied us so we wouldn’t lose our way. But not much beyond that.
