What happens if it rains?
The tour will still run in case of rain. We try our best to take cover but sometimes we are exposed to the elements. We have pocket-sized rain ponchos for sale in our shop and we highly recommend that you purchase one before tour. If you don’t use it, we will buy it back from you- it’s a bit of a rain insurance policy!
Do we go inside the museums and monuments?
There are over 20 palaces in Potsdam, plenty of parks and gardens, and endless history! We privilege cycling on this tour, and as such, we do not include entry into any one palace. The palaces are often non air-conditioned, small, and often have significant lines. Of course if you have your heart set on seeing the inside of a particular palace, let us know in the comments of your booking, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request!
