What people are saying about Marmorpalais

It was very easy to find the meet up spot since the guides were wearing lanyards and there was a tour sign. Johnny was an attentive and knowledgeable guide for our trip to Potsdam. He made sure everyone had the right train ticket, knew where to go, and was available for any questions. He had many photos printed to help support his stories. Definitely recommend! My tour was about 4 hours round trip from Berlin (10am to around 2pm).

Exactly the right hotspots approached. Learned a lot of important things from the guide via earplugs (including the history of the individual buildings) The only drawback: the guide is not up to date! e.g. B. : "... the canal should be completed by about 2017". Maybe update ;-)

Had booked Hop on Hopp off, but were then able to switch to the Alter Fritz tour spontaneously and free of charge. Super personal tour guide!!

We got on in the middle and only got the earphones later. As it was our first tour, it would be good to inform the guests beforehand.

It's always nice that there are buses of this type.
