This guided tour was by far the best I have ever experienced. The weather was good, bikes were fine, but the guide, Vincent…. He is simply extraordinary! His wide knowledge and his ability to tell the “other” stories of the city spiced up with his personal commitment is something you should allow yourself to experience.

Our timing was superb. Lovely weather to explore the city by bike. The differences between the neighborhoods are really nice to get to grips with during our first visit to Berlin.

Amazing! This trip was so cool - introduced new angles and new neighborhoods. Björn was the perfect guide, fluently English and sharing stories is his life in Berlin.

Our guide Jonathan led the group perfectly, gave great tips and kept the tour very entertaining! Great ... it was really worth it!

Exciting bike tour through Berlin. Highly Recommended!
