Both cycle tours are the best way to meet Berlin.Well organised with good guides.But the Potsdam cycle tour was one of the best experiences we ever had!A nice trip by train from Alexanderplatz to Potsdam and a big surprise follows:Hop on your bike and enjoy wonderful Potsdam with beautiful gardens and palaces.They call it Versailles of Berlin.Not true:much more beautiful than Versailles.Go for it !!!66 and 64 years old!

We took the Potsdam bike tour the day before we left Berlin ...our only regret was that we didn't take some of the other Fat Tire bike tours earlier in our week-long visit. Derek, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and informative. He had a great sense of humor, was charismatic and took the time to ask the members of the group their names (and not as a "sign-in" activity). Given the number of tours my husband and I have taken over the year, we noted that this was the first time any of the tour guides bothered to ask names during lengthy conversations - a small gesture which impressed us greatly. As Dale Carnegie's Principle #6 pointed out: "Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language". Potsdam was very lovely and the overall trip was loads of fun. Please note, however, that you will need cash for the beer garten lunch as they do not take credit cards. Also, they did not have any vegetarian options for those of you who don't eat meat. The garden in on the water and offers a beautiful view.

This trip was one of my favorite days in Europe! It was a full day of activity seeing gardens and palaces in Potsdam. We covered so much more by bike than what one could do by foot. The stop for lunch was at a beautiful brewery right on the water. The guide was knowledgeable and funny. Awesome tour!

A really interesting tour and a great way to see Potsdam. Our guide was really good. We stopped at a lovely beer garden by the lake for lunch. Tam, our guide, helped everyone order their lunch. That was really appreciated since the menu was in German and I certainly needed help. The audio tour through the location for the Potsdam Conference was really interesting.

Preston did a great job with providing so much information and personal insight on this very comprehensive tour. I was not expecting such an interesting and visually stimulating experience but I am very glad I decided to take this excursion. Beautiful gardens and great buildings and architecture made for a great day!

It was a great day for a bike ride. A perfect way to explore Potsdam. The food at the beer garden was great not included in the cost and the history lesson was well presented...chalk drawings on the pavement. Two thumbs up.
