We are so grateful that Hilke was available to guide us again after the two full days we spent with her in Berlin in October 2017. She was again a brilliant guide - this time to Potsdam- deeply knowledgeable, sensitive to our interests and needs, energetic and warm. We feel we have made a good friend in Germany. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tamara and Dan, thank you so much for your review. It was once again a great pleasure to meet you. Warm regards.

I highly recommend Hilke. She is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. She guided us effortlessly on public transportation from Berlin to Potsdam and back. We had a wonderful, educational tour of Potsdam, Sans Souci and Cecilienhof.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarah, thanks you very much for your nice review. It was my pleasure. All the best to all of you!

We had lots of fun with Hilke. She met us at the hotel, guided us through the public transportation to get to/from Potsdam & was very knowledgable. Has a good sense of history & happy to tell many stories both about the period, Potsdam & also life in Berlin. We booked Sans Souci & got her a ticket to come inside - unnecessary as you can't speak inside. Having a personal guide means that you make the most of your time & don't waste it getting lost! Main issue is that the day is Hugely expensive

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan, thanks for you review. I see your concerns regarding the costs. Just do avoid misunderstanding: As I had mentioned before in our conversation in the Sanssouci Palace it's not allowed to guide and my ticket was for free (as a member of the Berlin guide Association). Hope you are doing well and all the best. Hilke

Hilke provided our 6-person group an extremely informative and satisfactory Potsdam tour. The excellent tour included van service to-and-from Potsdam from our Berlin hotel. In transit, touring Cecillienhoff and Sanssouci Palace [the Palace's fine audio tour within the Palace] and enjoying lunch together, Hilke provided fascinating insights both into the historical sites and into 20th and 21st Century Germany. She is very pleasant and articulate and brings a delightful sense of humor to her work.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Walter, thank you very much for your lovely feedback. It was a very nice day with all of you. Allt the best and kind regards. Hilke

We really enjoyed our Potsdam tour with Hilke! She was well organized, very pleasant and easy to talk with, and her English was excellent. She offered valuable insight into German culture and history. We opted to use public transportation for the tour; however, the day was very humid and hot. Perhaps we should have given more consideration to hiring a car and driver as we walked over eight miles during the course of the tour. Hilke was very flexible, hard-working, and did a fantastic job!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Philip, nice to hear from you. I won't forget that hot day either ... long live a good apple juice. All the best ;-) Hilke
