I’m pretty much just echoing everything I’ve read after taking this horrible bus tour. The bus is ancient, as is the headset system used to listen to the commentary (because live commentary is in German, which of course we were not informed of). They managed...More

We chose the Kaiser Tour because it happened to be just leaving and we didn't want to wait, but we weren't disappointed. Non-Germans have headsets with recorded commentary while the bus is travelling, but at the stops (New Palace, Sanssouci, Cecilienhof; exteriors only) the tour...More

The third worst thing Germany has ever offered the world. These people might still be having last century ideas when they clearly discriminate all the non germans on the tour. You are basically not allowed to enjoy, or even listen to anything over the nuclear-blast-volumed-german-über-alles...More

I think they have updated the tour from what it used to be, now most if not all seats have headsets, and the guide speaks in both German and English. A great whistle-stop tour of Potsdam if you haven't got long!

This isn't a hop-on, hop-off service, as advertised, but rather a structured bus tour which includes stops where the guide will lead you around the outside of the major tourist spots. Unfortunately, there isn't time at any of these stops to go inside the buildings,...More

Faced with a number of choices upon exiting the rail station we opted for Kaiser Tours. Initial impressions weren't great as there were issues with headsets that wouldn't work, which could have been very problematic had the tour guide not been happy to switch between...More
