We booked this your as a group of 6 people, our host and tour guide Leah was very knowledgeable about the area, explaining the local cultural aspects of the urban art scene, we saw a side to Berlin that we would never have seen without booking such a tour. Highly recommend!

We got lucky with our Tour and Tour Guide Carlos. We were able to take our time and he pointed out so many things that we had seen before but didn't know the history behind it. 3 Hours may not sound like a lot but you are definitely beat afterwards.

Well worth the money. Get to see all the main landmarks of Berlin whilst learning lots on the way. I recommend the walking tour, best part of the experience! You get to learn things you would of missed, such as Hitlers Bunker!

It was a great cycle and very safe. Bike was sturdy & everything worked & there are plenty of very fascinating stops so it’s not 3 hours solid cycling if anyone is worried.

Very relaxing and organised. The staff was very professional and friendly at the same time.
